(written from a Production point of view)
The former Enterprise crew return home from The Mirror Universe Saga (Part 8 of 8).
A Starfleet armada has massed, with at least four refit Template:ShipClass and at least three Template:ShipClass vessels, ready to repel invaders from the mirror universe. A spatial anomaly is open nearby, as Captain Styles, from the flagship USS Christopher Pike, feeds his voice to other vessels' speakers ordering the fleet to remain at yellow alert. Styles's science officer, Morrison, reports sensor contact with a vessel traveling into our universe via the anomaly. Styles orders a female bridge officer to raise deflectors and prepare the warp drive.
