The USS Horizon NCC-1000, commanded by Captain Stuart Mann, is ordered to pick up transporter specialist Dr. Joseph Cady from planet Delinia II before proceeding into previously-unexplored space. Soon after, a distress call from Captain Antonio Saxon of the USS Wolfe leads to first contact with the Moropa, who had mistaken the Wolfe for a Bolian vessel. At this time the ship's crew includes FO Byron Haskins, science officer Edward Emick, helm officer Nicole Smits, a Tellarite engineer named Gnarr, CMO Elijah Underhill and transporter chief "TJ" Goodwin. Also aboard the Horizon are Stanley Mann, the captain's teenage son, and a young Vulcan student named T'Veris. The USS Wolfe's CEO is Leo Brownell.

A large sub-light colonisation force leaves the Jerjoye system after it becomes apparent that their home star is entering its terminal phase. Millions move below the planet's surface in an attempt to survive.

The USS Horizon NCC-1000 is lost with all hands in the Alpha Quadrant, having been accidentally transplanted through time by Edmundus Wednesday and Gilbert Gerundimor. The ship is not seen until the USS Horizon NCC-825002 discovers it adrift in the Cocoon on stardate 15.0416.

The senior crew of the USS Horizon NCC-1000 at the time of her disappearance are apparently as follows: CO Captain Stuart Mann, FO Commander Abi Seldon, OPS LtCmdr. D'Artaigne Storm, CMO LtCmdr. Electra Threin, armory officer Lt. Nathan Cady, CEO Lt. Stanley Mann, and CSciO Lt<jg> Lonu. It is unclear whether these individuals are the "real" crew, or simply doppelgangers formed as a consequence of the severe temporal distortions the vessel experienced.

According to Stan the Man's confused memories in the 25th century, Stanley Mann's fiancee was Lt. Nicole Smits, and the USS Horizon NCC-1000 was once attacked by rogue Klingons. These events may have their parallels with events occurring in the future.


First contact is established between the Klingon Empire and the So-Shen Confederation at around this time, beginning the first of four border wars between the two powers.

In an alternate reality, the Romulan mining ship Narada, originating from the year 2387, encounters and attacks the Federation starship Kelvin. In this version of events, James Tiberius Kirk is born to Winona Kirk aboard a fleeing medical shuttle, and George Kirk is killed in the destruction of the USS Kelvin. This event sets into motion an entirely new alternate history, culminating in the destruction of the planet Vulcan in 2258. [NC]

"The Cage" (Original "Star Trek" pilot episode)



The philosopher Endymatri is almost killed by Andorian assassins. As an indirect result of this event, the Federation passes the Freedom of Culture Act, banning the governmental supression of civilian literature and art. Some of Endymatri's writings include the Theorem of Unified Esoterica, which continues to be studied into the 25th century. However, the philosopher remains exiled from Andorian society until his death.

Also, the earlier Endymatri assassination attempt causes offense to the Rigellians, almost leading to war between the peoples of Rigel and Alpha Centauri.


At around this time, a landing party from a Starfleet vessel is transported back in time to ancient Connard IV. The only evidence of this will be the preserved corpse of a Vulcan team member named Semek, discovered by a team from the USS Horizon in 2410. [NC]
