Off Coverage is the seventeenth episode of Star Trek: The Stoneship Files.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Act 1[edit | edit source]

The Stoneship was hailed by the USS Akiraprise, while the latter reported about an outbreak of Jem'Hadar zombies for the Federation News Service. At first they were confused but it was the first time anyone in the Federation Starfleet that anyone heard about the U'lanna. But, at the same time, the science crew begins to analyze the blood samples, looking for abnormal substances in the blood. They later realize that there is a suspect substance in the blood samples, but Lisunia asked for more scientific data they did not possess.

Act 2[edit | edit source]

Lisunia requests permission from the CO to request scientific data from the Akiraprise, request relayed to Leonard Malton through Brianna Reiss. Leonard agreed but only if Brianna could defeat (with Mrazek, Urie and Kolmor) his team (with Maha Doluna, Tania Runchey and Sephtriet) in a soapbox car race. Leonard chose to hold a Grimsborough 500 race in a holodeck, which Brianna led until both carts hit a rut in the tracked lined with phosphorescent flora, and won after hitting the rut.

Act 3[edit | edit source]

Leonard offered to help out Rikert and Lisunia alongside the scientific data; he was so late that the Lyran duet discovered that the stomach walls were also contaminated while the lungs were not, leading them to the conclusion that ketracel-white contaminated with hexatriol caused the zombification. They began to write their article about Jem'Hadar zombification when Brianna announced a poster-making contest. Once the article is completed, it was submitted to various scholarly journals, including Starfleet Medical Journal, when its authors plan to write another about the effects of zombification on their combat capabilities.

Act 4[edit | edit source]

Mandy Guilmain suggested that Mrazek be the second author and the third author would be drawn among the 47 injured crewmembers. Garnoth won that lottery; at the same time, Hania won the poster contest by acclaim. After those events, Mandy asks Mijanou to help her out about Rikert's application for medical school (and LIMCAS in particular), especially about writing a letter of recommendation. The crew of the Stoneship also asks Starbase 148 to take over the Jem'Hadar corpses still stored on the ship, and they are being asked if revival was acceptable to them.
