The Discovery has completed her mission to rescue survivors from the horde of Reman vampires. But the mission has left lingering effects on all of the crew. Many had to make difficult choices and are now dealing with the consequences of those choices. For example, Cmdr Mitchell’s choice to give the injections to all crew returning from the surface resulted in his fiancee, Lt Cmdr Anders, loosing her memories for the last 3 years. The ship and crew are now at DS-285 and looking forward to shore leave on Ba’ku.
