A desperate SOS from a civilian colony summons the USS Victory. Attacked by Nausican pirates, the train of 6 decrepit ship is in no condition to protect itself. By the time the crew arrive, boarding parties are already on board some ships.
The Victory must drive off the Nausican ships, as well as send away teams to deal with the boarding parties.
However, it soon becomes evident that this convoy is a group of plague victims, segregated and exiled to die by their home world.
While the cure for the plague is relatively easy to find and reduplicate to protect the crew who were in contact with the convoy, the question of what to do about the convoy remains. Do they cure the convoy, potentially breaching the Prime directive? Do they leave them to drift till they die from disease, other pirates, or simply running out of supplies? Do they escort them to another planet where they can start a new colony of their own?
