Trip’s solo shuttlepod mission is cut short by an attack, forcing him to set down on a nearby moon. As he tries to contact Enterprise for backup, two complications arise which could prove to be fatal. The moon’s distance from its sun means that sunrise will bring a fatal temperature rise… and furthermore, Trip’s attacker has also become stranded on this world – a creature who doesn’t care if Trip lives long enough for help to arrive.
Guest Cast: Gregg Henry (Zho’Kaan), Brad Greenquist (Khata’n Zshaar)
