The Prologue to The Brave and the Bold.


2151: On Beta Aurigae VII, the crew of the Enterprise find remains from the ancient Zalkat Union, including a record of the fall of its tyrannical ruler, Malkus the Mighty. They discover that Malkus possessed four highly advanced devices which he used to keep power. After his fall, all four were hidden in locations across the galaxy. Captain Archer decides that if possible, all Starfleet and allied vessels should confiscate these missing devices.
