The USS Apollo, NCC-71669, has just left the Quatal system after taking final scans of what remained of the weapons manufacturing facility. The workers in the facility activated a self destruct sequence that could not be stopped. The away team, scattered and alive, made their way back to the Apollo. With the amount of unknowns from the facility, everyone was quarantined until they were able to get a good bill of health from the Chief Medical Officer, Jalana Laxyn.
The crew started to analyze what happened on the surface to use it as a learning experience for the newer officers. The crew will enjoy some down time as the Apollo departs the Cardassian border and returns to the Typhon Sector for the first time since being called away when the Klingons advanced into Romulan territory.
