Mission Summary

The crew of the USS Defiant located a shuttlepod from the USS Shelley on the surface of Eta Dosi III. While an away team was investigating the situation from the ground, the Defiant was forced from orbit by several vessels from the territorial Hydran Kingdom.

Part of the away team was captured by the Hydrans, while the Defiant was cornered in a nebula.

The Defiant, utilizing some improvised countermeasures, escaped the nebula and defeated the Hydran vessels. They make it back to the planet in time to rescue the away team, who had managed to escape and reach orbit with the use of the old shuttlepod. They had also rescued an old Vulcan, Vimir, who was a member of the USS Shelley crew.
