Starfleet's universal translator can handle new languages, but what about languages from a completely unknown timeline? Help Hoshi Sato update the translator's linguacode to prepare for the Excelsior's voyage. The away team constructs new intepretational frameworks that have the universal translator interpreting languages it never could before. Whomever the Excelsior meets on its voyage, it can hopefully speak to them. The away team's contributions to the translator's linguacode have it spitting out gibberish. It will take Sato days to undo their changes before she can continue modifying it to help the Excelsior.

Engineering In case the Excelsior is lost, Captain Sulu wants its escape pods upgraded to hold additional crew members, air, and supplies. Work with engineering to reconfigure their existing escape pods. The away team removes non-essential parts from the Excelsior's escape pods, lightening their load, saving space and improving the range of their thrusters at once. This breakthrough could save many lives. The away team's suggested modifications turn out to be incompatible with Starfleet's escape pods. If the worst comes to pass, the Excelsior's crew will have to rely on their current escape pods to save them.

Engineering Science The mirror universe's Jennifer Sisko was an expert on sensor arrays. If you can recover her research from the Terran Empire lab she abandoned, she can configure an array to help study the temporal anomaly. The away team slips through Terran Empire space and retrieves Jennifer Sisko's old research, intact. Using the files, she reconfigures a nearby starbase to scan the anomaly and learn several details about its origins. By the time the away team gains access to Jennifer Sisko's old lab, rival Terran Empire scientists have confiscated or destroyed all her work. Devastated, she insists she can be of no help in studying the anomaly.

Security With no idea what to expect through the anomaly, Captain Sulu wants to prepare for the worst. He's asked you to develop an improved phaser adapter in case they encounter any species with Borg-like shielding. The away team improves on the phaser adapters modulating algorithms, making it hard for even advanced shielding to compensate. Their success will help keep the Excelsior's crew safe against the unknown. The away team's new phase modulating algorithm nearly causes a test phaser's power cell to overload. The Excelsior's crew is better off with their original phase adapters to protect them.

Diplomacy Starfleet wants Captain Braxton's help determining whether the anomaly has a fixed endpoint. Unfortunately, his time stranded on 20th century Earth has left him paranoid, and he'll need help rehabilitating to the present. The away team gently introduces Braxton to life in the 24th century. Once he's gotten his bearings, his suggestions help Starfleet confirm that the temporal anomaly leads to a fixed point in both time and space. The away team makes some progress rehabilitating Braxton, but as soon as he is lucid enough, he steals a shuttle in the hopes that the anomaly will take him home to the 29th centruy. Starfleet has to arrest him.

Sending a Class-4 probe through an anomaly nearly killed Lenara Kahn. Use Kahn's data to adjust a probe's shielding frequency so it can be sent through the temporal anomaly without destabilizing it. The away team carefully compares Kahn's data to scans of the anomaly before selecting a shielding frequency for the probe. It enters the anomaly safely, but only time will tell whether it can report back. Starfleet sends the away team's poorly modified probe through the anomaly, unleashing a massive shockwave. The anomaly is intact, but several nearby ships are damaged, and the probe does not survive.

Medicine Some of the Excelsior's crew require medication which is difficult to replicate. Program the replicator to duplicate these compounds so the crew can receive their medicine no matter where the anomaly leads. The away team replicates organic compounds which can be combined to make the medication crew members need. This breakthrough means they don't have to rely on the sickbay's stockpiles for treatment. The away team has no better luck replicating treatments for the crew's chronic conditions than any Starfleet scientist before them. The crew will have to hope the Excelsior's current supply of medication is enough.

Science The Excelsior needs dilithium regulators for its voyage and the Romulans are selling a new prototype...with Devinoni Ral is their negotiator. Send an away team to outsmart the best negotiator in the business. Devinoni Ral's Betazoid heritage gives him an edge in the negotiations, but it's not enough to outwit the away team. They get an excellent deal on highly efficient dilithium regulators for the Excelsior. Despite the away team's preparations, Devinoni Ral always seems to be one step or one thought ahead of them. They can't get him or the Romulans to agree to sell a single dilithium regulator to the Excelsior.

Diplomacy Security A Changeling version of Julian Bashir once sabotaged graviton emitters to stabilize the Bajoran wormhole. Starfleet wants him to duplicate this feat and stabilize the temporal anomaly, if you can find him. The away team tracks their shapeshifting quarry to Earth, where he is hiding out as a botanist. He agrees to help stabilize this end of the temporal anomaly in exchange for a reduced penal sentence. The away team's search leads them to several Changelings, but not the one they are looking for. Without his help, Starfleet scientists resume their own slow research into stabilizing the temporal anomaly.

The NX-01's beloved Chef wants your help preparing stable but delicious rations for them in case of replicator breakdowns. The away team comes up with a method to condense 30% more food into a standard Starfleet ration pack. With their help, Chef fills most of a cargo bay with these hearty new rations, featuring his own recipes. Although they come up with some edible recipes, the away team can't improve the shelf-life or nutritional value of Starfleet's tried and true ration packs. Hopefully standard rations will be enough for the Excelsior.

Engineering Security Captain Sulu ordered a shipment of tritanium to reinforce the Excelsior's hull before its departure, but the miners sent to retrieve some from Argus X are requesting backup. Retrieve them and the tritanium safely. The away team defends the miners from a dikironium cloud creature long enough for them and the tritanium cargo to beam off of Argus X. The Excelsior will have its reinforced hull, and the minders are unharmed. The away team finds the miners being drained of blood by a dikironium cloud creature. Their attempts to drive it off only anger it, and they have to evacuate before they become its next meal.

Science The Department of Temporal Investigations fears that if this temporal anomaly leads to the current timeline's past, entering it could be disastrous. Study its chroniton emissions to learn when the anomaly leads. Chroniton emissions are difficult to interpret, but the away team's findings suggest that the temporal anomaly leads to a separate and far distant timeline. The Excelsior's visit shouldn't affect the current timeline. When the away team can't make heads or tails of the temporal anomaly's chroniton emissions, the Department of Temporal Investigations demands further study before they will allow the Excelsior to depart.

Rescue the Hansens from their Borg pursuers, and they can apply their work to the Excelsior's shields. The away team manages to disrupt the pursuing Borg sphere's transwarp drive, and the Hansens escape. They gratefully let Starfleet get to work reinforcing the Excelsior's shields so it can safely enter the temporal anomaly. When the away team attacks the Borg sphere pursuing the Hansens, they are nearly assimilated themselves. They can only watch as the Hansens are taken by the Borg Collective.

Engineering To protect the Excelsior's crew from potential temporal flux, Starfleet wants an improved version of the subspace isolation field Geordi La Forge once generated with emergency transporter armbands. The away team's improvements will completely protect the Excelsior's crew from temporal flux, should they need to turn their personal subspace isolation fields on. The away team can't improve upon LaForge's original subspace isolation field, which is no guarantee again temporal narcosis or other side effects after long exposure to other time continuums.

Diplomacy Starfleet hopes to use the MIDAS array to communicate with the Excelsior, but the pulsar that the array uses to create its microwormholes is showing signs of instability. Study the pulsar and see if this can be corrected. The away team finds that the MIDAS array's own tachyon beams have been destabilizing the pulsar. They devise a modulated beam which won't affect the pulsar's rotation but will let Starfleet contact the Excelsior. The away team realizes that the MIDAS array's own tachyon beams have destabilized the pulsar, but their only solution is shutting the array down. Starfleet won't be able to use the array to contact the Excelsior.

Find a suitable comet and guide it through the anomaly. It takes hours of flying and carefully deployed tractor beams to adjust a silithim comet's course, but the away team finally ushers one through the temporal anomaly, opening a subspace line for the Excelsior. The away team has no trouble finding a comet with the right amount of silithium, but their first attempt to change its course shatters it into pieces too small to be of use in communications efforts.

The Guardian of Forever refuses to allow the away team or anyone else to pass through its portal, but intrigued by the away team's arguments, it agrees to show Starfleet images of the Excelsior's voyage. When the away team approaches the Guardian of Forever, its only response to their pleas is an enigmatic, "Yours is not the question I seek," before going dark.

The Aenar Jhamel thinks she can maintain a telepathic link with someone across great distances—perhaps even through the anomaly. Send a strong-willed away team to test her theory on opposite sides of the Bajoran wormhole. Jhamel links minds with the away team before they pass through the Bajoran wormhole. When it closes, the away team reaches out...and can still sense Jhamel. Starfleet could use this to stay in touch with the Excelsior. Despite Jhamel's best efforts, the away team loses their telepathic connection with her once the Bajoran wormhole closes and leaves them in the Gamma Quadrant. It looks like telepathy won't help the Excelsior.

Medicine The automated repair station the NX-01 encountered requires humanoid hosts to do its repairs at incredible speeds. Find a less invasive way to direct some of its technology so it can be used in the Excelsior's upkeep. The away team invents a neural interface which crew members can use to direct reparation technology taken from the automated station. It is slower than the station's usual methods, but far safer for ship repairs. The away team's attempt to direct reparation technology taken from the station nearly causes permanent neural damage. Without a safe way to control it, the Excelsior won't be able to use this technology.

Science Temporal agent Daniels has centuries worth of experience with temporal anomalies. Starfleet wants his help studying the anomaly at hand, but first, someone will have to find out where—and when—he is. The away team visits Daniel's last reported location in this time and uses trace chroniton readings to track him down. Impressed by their ingenuity, Daniels agrees to provide intel on the Excelsior's anomaly. The away team uncovers many sightings of Daniels throughout history, but they can't find a way to reach him in the present. The Federation will need a less elusive expert on temporal anomalies.
