"Turncoat" was the fifth episode and season premiere for the second season of Star Trek: Artemis.
Captain David Hawk and Lieutenant JG Shean McKormic are both mortally wounded with time to save only one. Lieutenant Commander Jason Finnagan decides to save Hawk because he's the only person on the ship that can stop the Auto-Destruct sequence initiated by Eugen Jedrek at the end of season one's finale. After the ship is safe, Hawk is told that the USS Vindicator is en route to rendezvous with Artemis to assist in the neutralization of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey. Hawk is happy to hear that he'll get to spend time with Captain Worf, the Commanding Officer of the Vindicator. The Vindicator rendezvous with Artemis and together they find and defeat the Klingon Bird-of-Prey when the augments activate and utilize their Auto-destruct sequence. After the destruction of the Klingon Bird-of-Prey the Artemis and the Vindicator are ordered to attend a mission briefing onboard Deep Space 9 to discuss the information Eugen Jedrek gathered while onboard the Augment vessel.
