The ongoing negotiations between the Breen and the Romulans at Tyberius VII became increasingly heated, and pushed crew of the USS Ronin to their limits. When a facility containing aid packages was destroyed, Lieutenant Commander Tallis led an away team to investigate. The first batch of evidence pointed to a Romulan device being the cause, but through other evidence a Breen ruse was soon uncovered, one to cast aspersions on the Romulans and drive a wedge between them and the Federation. Back on the ship, the Breen and Romulan representatives made their cases to Captain Turner as the crew worked to develop a way to decode and understand Breen speech. The Breen leader was soon undone when Romulan accusations of a hidden shipyard were confirmed by his own aide, who subsequently defected to the Romulans.
