Quick overviewEdit

Expanded Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow.

The year is 2285. Political turmoil and secret military build-ups grip the Alpha Quadrant as rumours of an epic starship battle in the Mutara Nebula, and a secret project gone terribly wrong, reach the troubled citizens of the United Federation of Planets. In an atmosphere of paranoia and suspicion, the USS Grissom (NCC-638) is assigned to undertake a mission with galactic consequence and of the utmost secrecy. Under the command of veteran Captain Jonathan T. Esteban, the Grissom will undertake this mission, unaware it will be her last, the mission to the Genesis Planet!

Following the departure from Cinera Base, the Grissom crew undertake 2 missions. They must come to the aid of a luxury Star Liner, the Arcadia, which has picked up refugees fleeing across the neutral zone, who appear to be Klingon, but are not what they seem. Meanwhile Dr.'s Clive Saunders and Michael Liebmann must escape an elaborate Klingon trap on Pacifica.
