Taylor was part of a mission to Rudimon, a planet ravaged by decades of war and now with a fledgling peace. The Enterprise began a program to rebuild the planet’s electrical, medical and educational infrastructures in order to help encourage and inspire a long-lasting peace. After completing an initial survey, large numbers of the crew were located in the most populated city on Rudimon in order to train medical specialists, improve educational techniques, and upgrade deficient facilities. Suddenly a crude, outdated nuclear engine blew up, killing or injuring 120 members of the crew. Julia Taylor was one of 63 who were killed.
