Summary:
   TIME TRAVEL PROPERTIES OF THE U.S.5. LYNX

   U.S.S. LYNX ACHIEVES RETROGRADE TIME TRAVEL THROUGH THE PRECISE APPLICATION OF THE "COLD START" FORMULATION OF THE PRIMARY WARP ENGINE. TIMESLIP OCCURS AT A CONSTANT VELOCITY OF WARP 1.5 AND CAN BE MAINTAINED INDEFINITELY. COLD START OF WARP DRIVES IS DANGEROUS USING NORMAL WARP CONFIGURATIONS IN USE BECAUSE OF INADEQUATE HEAT DISSIPATION PROPERTIES OF PRIMARY AND SECONDARY INTERCOOLERS, [INTERCOOLERS DRAW HEAT AWAY FROM THE MATTER/ANTIMATTER INTERMIX CHAMBER] REACTOR TEMPERATURES REACH CRITICAL WITHIN .08 SECONDS OF MATTER/ANTIMATTER MIX. U.S.S. LYNX IS OUTFITTED WITH INTERCOOLERS RATED 300% OVER STANDARD DISSIPATION RATES TO COPE WITH INCREASED HEAT BUILD-UP.

   U.S.S. LYNX HAS BEEN OUTFITTED WITH A PRIMARY WARP ENGINE FOR TIMESLIP TRAVEL AND A SMALLER SECONDARY WARP DRIVE AS AN EMERGENCY BACKUP, BOTH ENGINES ARE CAPABLE OF TIME TRAVEL BUT THE SECONDARY WARP DRIVE DOES NOT CONTAIN THE VARIOUS SAFETY ENHANCEMENTS FOUND IN THE PRIMARY DRIVE.

   WHEN ENGAGED IN RESEARCH IN ANOTHER TIME PERIOD THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS MUST BE TAKEN:

   - NO CONTACT SHALL BE MADE WITH ANY PLANET OR CULTURE, THIS INCLUDES ALL MEMBERS OF THE UNITED FEDERATION OF PLANETS. CONTACT IS DEFINED AS VISUAL, RADIO CONTACT, LANDING PARTIES, AND INTERRUPTION OF NORMAL CHAIN OF EVENTS.
   - WHEN IN ORBIT AROUND AN INHABITED PLANET THE CLOAKING DEVICE MUST BE ENGAGED.

   SHIPS ORDERS ARE TO SELF DESTRUCT OTHER THAN RISK DETECTION UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:

   - LOSS OF WARP ENGINE CAPABILITY WHILE IN ANOTHER TIME PERIOD IF CONDITION IS PERMANENT.
   - CONTACT WITH HIGHER LIFE FORMS LISTED AS HOSTILE BY STAR FLEET.
   - CONTACT WITH ENEMY VESSELS WHO ARE ALSO FROM THE FUTURE, THIS INCLUDES KLINGONS, ROMULANS, K'ZIN, AND BETHANS.

   NO INTERVENTION IS TO BE TAKEN THAT WILL DISRUPT THE NORMAL DEVELOPMENT OF ANY PLANET. THE FOLLOWING IS A CAUSE AND EFFECT SCENARIOS THAT CANNOT BE ALLOWED TO HAPPEN:

   - REMOVING A CREATURE FROM IT'S NATURAL ENVIRONMENT WILL AFFECT THE FOOD CHAIN SLIGHTLY AND COULD, IN A MILLION YEARS, LEAD TO AN EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE.
   - LITTER AND FORGOTTEN GEAR CAN BE SALVAGED AND EXAMINED BY A PRIMITIVE CULTURE AND BE THE BASIS OF THEIR INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION.
   - STAR FLEET INSIGNIA OR SHIP PROFILE COULD BECOME THE BASIS OF A RELIGION TO A PRIMITIVE CULTURE.
