A Markab ship turns up derelict, all of its passengers and crew dead of an unspecified illness. Dr. Franklin, who happens to be investigating a slightly higher death rate among the Markab on the station, can’t seem to get his Markab medical colleague to reveal any reason for the increased mortality rate. When the Markab begin dying in greater numbers, however, Franklin discovers that a highly contagious disease is spreading which threatens to render the Markab extinct. The Markab themselves have known of isolated cases of this disease for some time, having accepted it as judgment upon the sinful, but now it’s judgement day for the entire species. Franklin races to devise an antidote, but when the Markab disease jumps species, it appears his efforts may be in vain.
