Begin with a Bang (Discovery Mission)
|[ Source ]|
Even months after the scars of Terra Prime were inflicted upon Earth's reputation, Starfleet is still pushing forward in an attempt to show to their new allies that they were a small minority of the population, and that Earth is still dedicated to peaceful exploration and greater interaction with alien cultures. Unfortunately there are various secrets which could jeopardise that image.
As Starfleet Intelligence learns the location of one of Terra Prime's former members, they become increasingly concerned about his actions, with indications showing that he has ambitions of ascending to Paxman's throne and leading Terra Prime in various violent actions, the first of which they have reason to believe to be the bombing of a Tellarite trading compound on Earth's colony of Deneva. With construction on Discovery almost complete, Captain Curtis is ordered to launch ahead of schedule in order to intercept the rogue terrorist before he can detonate his explosive.
