While Lieutenant Commander Wilde led an away team on an investigation of the nearby Iconian Gateway, the crew aboard the USS Tiger NCC 52199-A found themselves to be very busy. With the ship recently afloat from the bottom of the ocean, a mysterious computer virus began affecting various systems throughout the ship jeopardizing the ship’s stability. While the Engineering department began combating the virus, a rescue mission led by Lieutenant West set out to retrieve the away team.
After an incident involving the Gateway, the away team found themselves in an alternate reality that resembled a wasteland version of Earth. After some investigating, the away team began to realize that their reality was askew and began an attempt to escape. Meanwhile, the rescue team discovered the away team and wasted no time in beaming them aboard the shuttlecraft. Once the away team was safely aboard the Tiger, Fleet Captain Sidney Riley ordered the Gateway and its surrounding complex to be destroyed.
With the Gateway destroyed the crew of the USS Tiger NCC 52199-A set course for Deep Space 17 for refit and shore leave. While en route, a mysterious alien intruder was found in the Captain’s quarters, and the still unchecked computer virus continues to cause problems throughout the ship.
