Part One of The Brave and the Bold.

Summary[edit | edit source]

2266: The first Malkus Artifact is found near the Federation colony on Alpha Proxima II, used by a dismissed civil servant to spread a virus throughout the colony. Commodore Matthew Decker of the USS Constellation responds to a distress call, as does the USS Enterprise. While Constellation CMO Lewis Rosenhaus works with Leonard McCoy to halt the plague, Decker and James T. Kirk invoke martial law to keep the colony from falling into anarchy.
