Background Information Edit

  • This story takes place sometime after TNG: "Ménage à Troi", when Wesley receives his red uniform.
  • Cover artist Jerome K. Moore remarked: "If I were to have added the final color, you might be able to notice that Enterprise is powered up and lit just as she is struck on the rear port quarter. This impact takes out all power, and sends her into the spin. The subsequent images of the ship show that all the lights are out. Then a second impact tips the saucer section toward the viewer." [1]
