Enterprise-D responded to the outpost’s distress call, but the early stages of the firestorms were beginning by the time they arrived. Implementing a series of thermal deflectors for the first time, the crew of the Enterprise-D erected a defense shield while the evacuation took place. The thermal deflectors were given to failure because of the extreme circumstances and needed to be adjusted, often by hand, and even the slightest mistake led to combustion flooding into one of the defensive positions.

They have known periods of global peace and prosperity, periods of chaotic intramural warfare, and periods of just about everything in between.
