Terror Firma

Star Trek: ProdigyStardate not given: After watching the planet’s vegetation drag the Protostar back to the ground, moments after a shuttle containing Gwyn and Murf escape from it, Dal and his team are worried that they’ve just become stranded. Now that they’re all aware of the planet’s illusory powers, those illusions are now less benevolent and more terrifying, and the planet swallows the Runaway whole, leaving them unable to see the homing signal being generated by the Janeway hologram to lead them home. They take shelter in the wreckage of a Klingon Bird of Prey, where Dal decides to see if they can navigate back to the Protostar using the stars. But the Diviner and Drednok are waiting for them when they arrive…and the injured Gwyn will find out for herself whether her father places a higher value on her safety or that of the wayward Federation ship.
