In the 29th century, the Agent Rave attempts to head Starfleet's battle against the Na'kuhl - but instead, Starfleet demands Rave return his ship, the USS Atlantis. Rave opposes and uses the Temporal drive on his ship to time-jump in escape of Starfleet's advances. The Phoenix-X time-jumps after the Atlantis in hot pursuit. The two vessels then engage in a ridiculous trek through time - constantly time-jumping from one century to the next. Meanwhile, back in the 29th century, the Vorgons time-jump in from another century to get involved with the battle between Starfleet and the Na'khul. More and more temporal incursions drive the battle to its wits end.
- "We are the Lethean, here to meet with you. You appear Federation......ish."
- — Flarrd
- The battle between the Na'kuhl and Starfleet in the 29th century serves as a prequel to the appearance of the Na'khul in the Star Trek: Enterprise two-episode parter "Cold Front".
- Agent Rave takes the Phoenix-X on a chase through time, encountering numerous species and ships familiar to the Trek universe.
- Time-jump 1: in the 23rd century the USS Enterprise awaits first contact with the Lethean. Unfortunately, the Phoenix-X and the Atlantis appear before the Lethean flagship, altering the Lethean's intentions on a first contact with the Federation. The Enterprise awaits at the rendezvous co-ordinates, never meeting up with the Lethean. This takes place during the Enterprise's 5-year mission as seen on Star Trek: The Original Series.
- Time-jump 2: in the 25th century, Worf's son, Ambassador Alexander Rozhenko, rendezvouses with Fleet Admiral Alynna Nechayev to share knowledge of newly developing time-travel technology. But when the Phoenix-X and the Atlantis make an appearance, their impressions on time-travel direct toward a more precautionary perspective: possibly suggesting some kind of Temporal Accords. This serves as a prequel to Alexander's time-jump into the 24th century as seen on Star Trek: The Next Generation's episode "Firstborn"; and a prequel to the Temporal Accords' creation. Alexander's position as Ambassador is also a continuation as his position as Ambassador seen in Keith R. A. DeCandido's Star Trek novel "Articles of the Federation".
- Time-jump 3: in the 20th century, the Phoenix-X encounters a Briori vessel on its way to Earth. They give mention to the Skagaran’s who claim that some of the best slaves are abducted from Earth. This serves as a prequel to both the Star Trek: Voyager episode "The 37's" and, through mention, the Enterprise episode "North Star".
- Time-jump 4: in the 26th century (in Star Trek: Enterprise's alternate timeline where Vosk was destined to wipe out Daniels' faction in the 31st century), the Phoenix-X encounters a telepathically advanced Lethean species who are aware of the oncoming attack by the Sphere Builder's. This serves as a prequel to the Enterprise episode ""Azati Prime"", where Archer visits the Battle of Procyon V. The Phoenix-X also encounters the actual Federation starship USS Phoenix-X.
- Time-jump 5: in the 31st century, a copy of Voyager's EMH travels aboard a single-occupant Kyrian starship toward the Alpha Quadrant. He quickly downloads a copy of the Phoenix-X's database while the Phoenix-X and the Atlantis are in battle. This serves as a sequel to the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Living Witness".
- Agent Rave's involvement with a ship named the "USS Atlantis" is ironic, as his last encounter with the crew of the Phoenix-X took place aboard the USS Atlantis.
- In each episode of the "Temporal Doom!"-trilogy, there is a small reference to Christmas.
