"Departments" was the fifty-eighth episode of Star Trek: Phoenix-X. It was the eighth episode of the third season.


The Phoenix-X makes a non-eventful stop off at Earth, where they are supposed to meet with an X-Team technician, Robert Beck, who will assist the Phoenix-X in developing a new technology. Meanwhile, a Lieutenant Detail from Starfleet Command becomes obsessed with the Phoenix-X's presence at Earth, claiming to the higher-ups that they are keeping secrets. Seifer gets in contact with Armond, who tells him that the X-Team is and always has been working under Section 31: and that Starfleet Intelligence has no knowledge of their existence. Cell attempts to assist in Armond's failing marriage; and RaeLuna has a life-inspiring experience visiting Earth for the first time.
