Prezzi Adeyemi, Seriph Rhetorical Ecclesia
Melchizedek Serial 0294 Ecclesiastic Report

Mutiny report. Priority one.

The Melchizedek is has left Beta Hydrii four. Initial reports
acknowledge Eva Hämäläinen, our ship's navigator, as the lead
mutineer. She has taken Hildar Simms by force along with 12 other
crew members. It is uncertain which of these 12 crew members may
be involved in the plot and which were taken against their will.

26 crew remain at Beta Hydrii four.
3 crew remain at Beta Hydrii three.

Communications are restored. Seeding operations have been restored
to 60% efficiency. Our systems damage is extensive. Explosives
have rendered habitats A, B, and C uninhabitable. The crew are
sharing quarters in habitat D for the time being while efforts are
centered or restoring environmental seals.

The damage to biological engineering and seed processing is minor.

The damage to our materials processing and manufacturing is more
troublesome, especially without the Melchizedek here to aid.

Investigations are underway.

Earth, please advise.
