Wherever there is a need to fix a malfunction or rescue a damaged ship, the Federation calls in the crack team from Starfleet S.C.E. From finding a Starfleet vessel lost inside a holographic ship, to checking out new technology captured during the Dominion War, no task is too bizarre or too dangerous for Captain David Gold, Commander Sonya Gomez and their crew of S.C.E. troubleshooters on board the USS da Vinci.

However their mission to Galvan VI could prove their greatest challenge yet. Not only must they salvage the USS Orion from the turbulent atmosphere of a gas giant, but the Orion is carrying the prototype of the deadly Wildfire device, a protomatter warhead that can ignite gas giants into stars. And to complicate matters still further they encounter an unknown alien life-form that may have lured the USS Orion to its destruction…
