In the far reaches of space, a trio of Klingon warships fire upon a strange blue-ish geometric cloud, though their proton torpedoes have no effect. The squad leader calls for evasive action, suspecting a retaliatory volley. He’s not disappointed. Nearby, Epsilon IX, a Starfleet monitoring station picks up the exchange and witnesses the destruction of the Klingon vessels, one-by-one, each by powerful bolts of blue plasma energy emanating from deep within the anomaly. Worse, the crew of the station make a terrifying calculation: the massive cloud appears to be on a fixed heading straight for Earth! Cue the music.
