"Secret Occurrences" was the second flashback episode of Star Trek: Phoenix-X. The episode incorporates sections of previous episodes, including "Secret Shuttles, Part I, II and IV", "Destiny's Revenge, Part II" and "Occurrence, Part II". The story utilized specific text from those episodes in order to keep continuity, but mostly included additional story within or around those stories.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Commander Seifer, from the year 2377, becomes trapped in the year 2375 ("Secret Shuttles, Part I"); and Captain Daniel, from the year 2378, becomes trapped in the year 2344 ("Occurrence, Part II"). Discovering the Narendra III temporal rift, the out-of-sync Seifer is suddenly sent even further back in time to 2367 where he and the out-of-sync Daniel are enlisted by Section 31 to over-see the transwarp project that will eventually become the Phoenix-X.
