Events[edit | edit source]
- 28 January
- The space shuttle Challenger explodes shortly after liftoff, killing all seven crew members. 
- Following the "attack" by the Cetacean Probe in 2286, Admiral James T. Kirk and the former crew of the late USS Enterprise travel to San Francisco to take two humpback whales, George and Gracie, with them back to the future.  
- Shortly afterwards, Detective Chizum of the San Francisco Police Department was assigned to investigate Gillian Taylor's disappearance as well as Pavel Chekov's escape from Mercy Hospital. Chizum investigated both matters and discovered that Taylor was involved in Chekov's escape from the hospital. This investigation led Chizum to discover many strange, but linked, occurrences in the San Francisco area, including Taylor's conversation with a strange man in North Bay Pizza who claimed to be from the 23rd century. All the signs led to the landing place of the HMS Bounty in Golden Gate Park, where impressions left by the ship in the grass were still visible. Chizum determined that the actions were carried out by people from the future and found it reassuring that Humanity would still be around by then. After this determination, he moved the case to the inactive list because he would never be able to inform his superiors without being laughed out of his job.

However, before she arrives to do so, she is stopped by Gary Seven, who tells her that mankind is not yet ready for such technology.
