The captain's log on the HMS Bounty was kept during the exile of Admiral Kirk and his USS Enterprise command crew on Vulcan from the end of 2285 into 2286. (Star Trek III: The Search for Spock; Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)
One log entry was made shortly before the Bounty disembarked for Earth.
- "Captain's Log, stardate 8390. We are in the third month of our Vulcan exile. We are uncertain about the progress of Captain Spock's memory training. And it was Doctor McCoy with a fine sense of historical irony, who decided on a name for our captured Klingon vessel. And like those mutineers of five hundred years ago, we too have a hard choice to make."
