Survival Test[]

Faced with a difficult survival course on a hostile alien planet, the crew finds itself embroiled in a real-life showdown with a Cardassian aggressor. To survive — let alone warn Starfleet of the encroaching danger — they must put their limited training, and all the initiative and ingenuity they can muster, to a test that goes well beyond what they were prepared for.

The Medusa Syndrome[]

Against the backdrop of classes, exams, and the forthcoming Sadie Hawkins Dance, a mysterious disease breaks out at Starfleet Academy, leaving its victims temporarily paralyzed and weakened. As the crew members race against the clock to find a cause for the disease (and get dates for the dance), they discover a malevolent energy being brought to campus in an alien archaeological artifact. They must track down and study this lifeform in an effort to end its depredations and find a cure for the disease..."
