Description[edit | edit source]

2369 
With the recommissioning of the U.S.S. Progress, Captain David Gold is contemplating his next command while on a mission to the Federation protectorate Drema IV. Gold's chief medical officer, Dr. Katherine Pulaski has her own reasons for wanting to return to Drema IV, to check up on a former patient of hers: Sarjenka, a girl who befriended Data of the Starship Enterprise, and whose memories Pulaski erased.
A mining accident on Drema IV brings together the S.C.E., Pulaski, Gold, and Sarjenka in an adventure that will have far-reaching consequences for all of them…

Background[edit | edit source]

  • This eBook is the first of six in the SCE: What's Past miniseries, celebrating the fortieth anniversary of Star Trek.
  • A report on the situation on Drema IV dated stardate 45998.3 cites similarities to Bajor following the Cardassian Withdrawal. However, this is apparently well before the withdrawal, given the stardate of 46379.1 in DS9 episode: "Emissary".
