An Aegis-class starship drops out of warp, resolving into the Endeavour (NCC-1805), its bridge crewed by Commander Valas and lieutenants Darwin, Ellix, and Murcia. As the lieutenants exchange notes about their new captain, he arrives on the bridge as James T. Kirk. The Endeavour is an hour away from a sweep of the Pellion system, part of the one-year survey with Kirk in interim command. Leonard McCoy is preparing a medical survey for the demanding Chief Groffus, his superior due to demotion needed so McCoy could join the Endeavour crew.

On a terrace of a New Vulcan building, Spock in Vulcan robes is discussing Nyota Uhura with Sarek, notably her decision to accompany Spock on his sabbatical, her ease of integation into the life on the planet and suitability for Spock as a companion. Uhura then joins them in a white Vulcan dress and reiterates her happiness as the trio watch the sunset.

In San Francisco, meanwhile, Montgomery Scott is lecturing a roomful of cadets on starship safety protocols, defending his record by pointing out that before its ultimate demise, the two incidents in which the USS Enterprise could have been lost were also two where it saved the very ground they're on.
