Main plot pointsEdit

Expanded Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.
  • While Noah Wrightson loses Samantha D'Angelo and other original choices for senior officers, he gains Elizabeth Singh, Daniel Radke, Yh'ahni, Benjamin Caldwell and Tawana Killan.
  • The Myhr'an rise in violence is first thought to be triggered by the Myhr'an themselves, the Treaty Killers and finally the M'Tar. This violence is brought to a head with the death of the Myhr'an commander at year's end.
  • Marie Bourget is reunited with her estranged daughter, Helena Bourget, who is instrumental in curing Wrightson of Caldean Acute Cardiopulmonary Syndrome, but ultimately betrays her mother and the Cantabrian crew.
  • Benjamin Caldwell is accused of attempted genocide for the Taris Syndrome plague raging on Lelar Prime but is found not guilty; later, his genetic structure is altered yet again by another artefact.
  • Ulitania Jonar, Wrightson's long-time friend and security chief, is fatally injured by the Myhr'an during a battle on Canaileus Prime. The Jonar symbiont is transferred to Tawana Killan, but the loss of Ulitania drives Wrightson's determination to win against the Myhr'an.
  • The Cantabrian away team aboard a Myhr'an super battle cruiser discover the Myhr'an are cloning foot soldiers in maturation chambers aboard their ships: a fact Bourget confirms through a Myhr'an clone's black, goo-like interior, in her autopsy. In saving friends and other Federation citizens from the Myhr'an internment camp, Yh'ahni uncovers the Myhr'an are using living beings as source material for creating the clones.
  • The Cantabrian crew make contact with the Renai'i as well as a new group known as the Treaty Killers.
  • Samantha Delaney leaves destruction in her wake, and will rise to become a major threat in season 2.
  • Antonio Fernandes's past comes to light, including his disastrous time as a teenager aboard the USS Auckland. He also faces his fears of command by taking a heavily-damaged Cantabrian into battle with a Myhr'an super battle cruiser to free Wrightson, Singh, Radke and Caldwell.
