In 2257, Polcovich was called upon to serve as science officer following the death of Darick Lynch, who had previously been her superior officer. She later attended a briefing held by Lieutenant James T. Kirk, to discuss the increased threat of the N'shaii satellites and their controlling mothership in orbit of Sordinia IV. At the conclusion of the briefing, Kirk assigned Polcovich to the boarding party that he was sending over to the mothership in order to disable its link with the satellites.
With assistance from Communications Officer Borrik, the two were eventually able to take down the network, which enabled the Constitution to quickly dispatch the mothership and the majority of the satellites. In his after action report to Captain Augenthaler, Kirk gave credit to Polcovich and the boarding party for their actions during the engagement. (TOS - My Brother's Keeper novel: Constitution)
