Mission Summary

The USS Defiant is assigned to house a peace negotiation between the Federation-backed Lenarans and the Klingon-backed Drenh. The negotiations were beginning to degrade when Drenh Ambassador Droom was murdered, implicating several of the crew, including the Captain. Peace talks immediately came to a halt.

As the investigation unfolded, it began to become clear a telepath had been involved with the killing. To make matters worse, the Tellarite Ambassador and his staff were killed.

The crew finally identified the killer. Vimir, the Vulcan they had rescued from Eta Dosi III, had been a deep cover Romulan spy with genetic enhancements. Having now returned to the galaxy, he attempted to disrupt the peace talks, hoping it would lead the Federation and Klingons into a war.

He was confronted and the crew were forced to kill him after a brief conflict. The Federation and Klingons decided to remove themselves from the negotiations in order to make it easier for the Lenarans and Drenh to make peace.
