|Next episode:||"Scorpion's Descent"|
The Phoenix-X systems begin to malfunction, requiring the ship to undergo a much needed refit. Unfortunately, due to the Phoenix-X's secretive nature, bringing the ship to standard Starfleet refit locations is not applicable. Meanwhile, Amp's program being tied into the ship begins to be affected by the degradations: disrupting his holoimaging systems. It isn't long before he is taken on a journey throughout the ship, being transferred to all his previously visited locations.
