"Hold On" is the twelfth episode of the second season of Star Trek: The Cantabrian Expeditions.


Ethan Arden failed in completely downloading his grandmother's holographic matrix before her ship's destruction in "The Eagle" and has found no solution since. But his sister comes to the Cantabrian with a possible solution...


  • We find out both Ethan and Sonya Arden are eager to bring their grandmother back, although their parents aren't thrilled with the idea.
  • The title of this episode is based on Sarah McLachlan's song "Hold On". The specific lyrics that inspired this episode are:
    • "Hold on/Hold on to yourself/For this is gonna hurt like hell"; and
    • "Oh God, if You're out there won't you hear me/I know we've never talked before/And oh God, the man I love is leaving/Won't You take him when he comes to Your door."
