"Temporal Doom! Part III" was the seventy-first episode of Star Trek: Phoenix-X. It was the third and final part of a three-part episode arc, and the twenty-first episode of the third season.
Summary[edit | edit source]
When attempting a dangerous time-jump while both the Phoenix-X and USS Atlantis are tractor-beamed, both ships' Temporal drives are knocked offline. Captain Cell takes this opportunity to beam over to the Atlantis and fight Rave. Meanwhile, Kugo resets the Temporal drive in Main Engineering, allowing for one last time-jump. Unfortunately, the jump is premature and miscalculated, thus sending the Phoenix-X hurling through time toward the Guardian of Forever. The Guardian then explains that they were brought to him like a magnet for not controlling their time-jump.

Background information[edit | edit source]
- The Na'kuhl losing all their time-capability in the battle serves as a prequel to the appearance of the Na'khul in the Star Trek: Enterprise two-episode parter "Cold Front". Starfleet becoming weak after this battle is also a prequel to the appearance of Daniels' time in the 31st century where he pointed out the existence of a monument to the long-passed Federation (as seen in Enterprise's "Shockwave, Part II"). The constant temporal incursions after this battle may also be the cause of the Federation branch, the Temporal Integrity Commission, to put timeships on patrol to never allow this sort of thing to happen again: thus prequeling the Star Trek: Voyager episodes "Future's End, Part II" and "Relativity".
- Agent Rave's involvement with a ship named the "USS Atlantis" is ironic, as his last encounter with the crew of the Phoenix-X took place aboard the USS Atlantis.
- In each episode of the "Temporal Doom!"-trilogy, there is a small reference to Christmas.
- Episodes after this, there is no mention of the Temporal drive until "These Aren't the Voyages...", where it is established that the drive was dismantled. It was most likely returned to Section 31.
- Sayjan is seen again in "The Xindi Paradox".
