As Doctor Anjar fights to restore the critically injured Lieutenant Saracyn to full health, Captain Lancaster oversees the evacuation of Cardinal 1 and the Arcturus’s defensive plans with the high risk of another attack.
Trying to restore what is left and give the people of the Agarath system a chance to live out their newfound freedoms, the crew of the Endeavour find themselves having to deal with multiple accounts of disruption to their efforts. However, with everyone working hard to turn things around, Captain Rourke prepares for an incoming strike force ready to retake the system back. Not only is he faced with insurmountable odds ahead of him, Rourke finds himself at the end of a backlash from his chief science officer.

Captain Taes negotiates with Kunhri III’s Reman leader, Kecene, for the release of her crew.

She demands organic substrates and replicator technology, informing Taes that the gardens constructed by the Dvorak’s crew have been destroyed. Taes makes a last-ditch effort to explain how this would leave Kunhri in an unsustainable position, letting her emotions get the better of her. Finally, Lieutenant Kellin Rayco is released. He shares a hug with Taes and together they beam back to the Dvorak.
