- Mission STS-54 ends.
- Doctor Marcus Walter Nichols is recruited by the secret Area 51 task force around Shaun Geoffrey Christopher, Shannon O'Donnel and Jeffrey Carlson. They are building a sleeper ship prototype, the DY-100, based on acquired Ferengi technology, and they want to use the transparent aluminum as well.
- Not known to the other Area 51 workers, Shannon O'Donnel secretly meets with Roberta Lincoln (who is disguised as Helen Swanson); Roberta provides Shannon with some alien technology for the DY-100 project.
- Khan Noonien Singh assembles some of his fellow Chrysalis Project superhumans - including Vasily Hunyadi, Alberto Gomez (aka Pachacutec), General "Hawkeye" Randall Morrison, Arcturus and Chen Tiejun. Khan's goal, to unite the supermen under his reign, fails and they leave in conflict.
- Thanks to some undercover assistance from Roberta Lincoln, the Peruvian government captures Alberto Gomez.
- It is known that earlier in the week Hunyadi's people assassinated a couple of Khan's most highly placed pawns in the local government.
- In the morning, Khan retaliates against Hunyadi by taking out an entire Serbian intelligence cell.
- Khan is lured to the Ajorra caves in central India by Vasily Hunyadi, force behind the Serbia government, who attempts to assassinate Khan by triggering an earthquake with an underwater concussive charge place. This earthquake was in the previously-considered aseismatic region of Maharashtra. The death toll from the quake is over 10,000 and entire villages are destroyed.
- NASA fixes the Hubble space telescope.

- The world Capulon IV is finally ready to join the Federation after years of waiting. All that remains is the ruler's coronation and a routine signing of the final treaty. When the crew of the USS Enterprise and their passengers—a group of women from a religious order dedicated to helping the downtrodden—arrive for the event, they expect to find a world willing and happy to receive them. Instead, they encounter deceit and treachery. The crown prince, once excited and eager to join the Federation, now refuses even to speak with Captain Picard. Beaming to the surface in an attempt to work out the problem, Picard, Troi, and Mother Veronica, the abbess of the nuns, are drugged and captured. Now they must somehow escape and stop the crowning.
