Summary[edit | edit source]
Background information[edit | edit source]
- This story introduces an "accident" characterized as massive molecular reversion field, intermixed with an ion storm, which is to explain how some characters remain young well into the 25th century. So far, characters noted to be involved are Menrow, Iviok and Aeris. Since each have mostly the same crews in Star Trek: Phoenix-X Unofficial stories, the crews can be assumed involved in the accident as well.
- This story integrates itself with the Star Trek Online tutorial mission "Graduation Day" and includes excerpts of dialogue from it.
- In the "present" of this story, at the beginning, Reynolds is ranked as Vice Admiral, but by the end of the story, after her return, she discovers her rank is down to Captain. This is a call back to "Hijinx", where her rank as Commander was an issue for her, as, in that story, she was already in command of the Hijinx and desired to be Captain.
