The crew of the Duronis II Embassy/USS Thunder, NCC-70605, continued their investigation into the USS Canis Major NCC-611 and the abandoned alien station that brought it to the nebula. Following the departure of Commander Unum, Lt Cmdr Alucard Vess, the new first officer, leads a second away team to the station, with the intent to collect as much information as possible, and then destroy it to prevent the station from falling into enemy hands.
The team manages to collect data from the stations library, but their attempt to rig the station for detonation fails when the stations artificial intelligence re-awakens, setting off a chain of self-preservation systems, culminating with shots being fired upon the Thunder. The away team blows up the stations door, enabling their escape and return to the Thunder. A hard landing on the Thunder sends Lt Skyleena Blake into early labor, who delivers her daughter Faith during the following fight with the station.
The crew disengages from the station to regroup and come up with a plan of attack. A breakthrough comes when Ensign Kasara discovers that the station contains some old Klingon technology which can be shut off with a code, allowing them to destroy it. A team takes fighters to get close enough to set off the plan, and the station is destroyed. Following the successful destruction of the station, the crew gather in the ships lounge to celebrate the end of a successful mission.
