Stardate not given: Keiko, Molly, and Kirayoshi have returned to the station, and to celebrate, Miles takes them on a picnic to Golana. While there, however, Molly falls into a heretofore undiscovered time portal left behind by an ancient civilization. Miles is finally able to retrieve her, but the calculations are off, and Molly is beamed back as an 18-year-old who has survived for ten years and has turned savage in the process. The O’Briens do their best to help her re-socialize, but Starfleet wants to institutionalize her. Can her parents make the choice to give her the only home she knows?
