"Crucial" (or Star Trek: Crucial) was the eighth spin-off of Star Trek: Phoenix-X and seventh spin-off of the third season. It originally stood on its own until it was integrated into Star Trek: Phoenix-X in August 2014. The story focuses on the crew of the USS Crucial and is written as logs from its crew.
