In that year, an engineering team aboard the USS Discovery detected a Federation distress signal coming from the center of the Verubin Nebula. As with any distress signal, it had an encoded message. Assisting the team further, Adira wrote this algorithm for finding and decoding this message in a few hours. Soon after they finished writing it, they ran the algorithm and, at times, monitored its progress. The algorithm ran for hours, with the percent of completion displayed on a monitor.
