"Captain's Prerogative" was the fourth clips episode of Star Trek: Phoenix-X and the first clips episode of the fifth season. It collected short thematic and paragraphed chronicles, or descriptions of Captain's Oroku Seifer and Menchez's experiences in the early 25th century. Each entry was a reply to Arc Forums message board questions posted for the Star Trek Online player community about their "Captains". The series of clips are open-ended.
Through separate experiences, Oroku Seifer and Menchez encounter their own brand of mischief in the Delta Quadrant, are subjects of reflection of belonging and are profiled on personality and behavior.
