S'Slee's ship descended upon the outpost dropping bombs until the site was all but obliterated. Several hundred Starfleet personnel were killed in the fire-bombing.

Captain S'Slee took it upon himself to fake a communiqué to a Federation starship, namely the USS Enterprise, masquerading a Starship officer named Commodore Travers. He invited the crew of the Enterprise to come to Cestus III and to bring a large complement of tactical officers with them.

Matthew Bennell 002

Matthew Bennell was a health inspector working in the city of San Francisco, California in the 1970s. Bennell took his job very seriously and was not above embarrassing and threatening to revoke the licenses of restaurant owners by pointing out violations. In at least one case, the employees of a restaurant repaid Bennell for his comments by smashing the windshield to his car with a wine bottle.

Bennell's life changed forever the day his close friend and colleague, Elizabeth Driscoll told him about her boyfriend Geoffrey. Elizabeth was convinced that Geoffrey was literally not himself and took note of the man's recent cold and dispassionate behavior. Matthew didn't care for Elizabeth's "crazy dentist" boyfriend to begin with, but this was largely due to the fact that he harbored a secret crush on Elizabeth himself. Despite this, he wanted to help her sort out her anxiety so he recommended taking her to see a psychiatrist he knew named Doctor David Kibner. Elizabeth was reluctant to accept aid from a psychiatrist, but agreed to see him and Matthew made the arrangements.

Crais meets Crichton

John Crichton is a scientist and astronaut employed by the International Aeronautics and Space Administration. He is preparing to embark upon a mission to prove his own hypothesis to see if a manned spacecraft could overcome atmospheric friction and exponentially increase its speed using only a planet's natural gravitational pull. His childhood friend and co-worker DK expresses great excitement over the mission, but John has reservations. Complicating matters is the arrival of John's father Jack Crichton, himself a retired astronaut of some repute. Jack pulls his son aside and tells him how proud he is of him. John feels it will be difficult to step out from under his father's shadow. As a memento, Jack gives him a puzzle ring that was given to him by cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.

John boards the Farscape-1 space module - a craft of his own design. The shuttlecraft carying the module launches out of Cape Canaveral in Florida. The initial phase of his flight proves successful as the module slingshots around the Earth's atmosphere. Suddenly however, John finds himself pulled into an electromagnetic cloud.

Dave Bowman

Dave Bowman was an astronaut and the first captain of the exploratory space vessel Discovery One In 2001, he was assigned to a mission known as Project: Jupiter - a journey that would take the ship to the planet Jupiter where it was expected to take up a permanent position as an artificial satellite. The official mission briefing was scheduled for one-hundred days, wherein he and his crew would map and study the world and transmit their findings back to Earth. After the mission was completed, he was expected to enter artificial hibernation and wait to be re-acquisitioned in the year 2006. However, the true mission of the Discovery One was one that only a handful of people back on Earth were even aware of.

His colleague, Doctor Francis "Frank" Poole as well as the rest of the crew and even Bowman himself were unaware of the true nature of their mission. Only the Discovery One 's onboard computer system, an artificial intelligence known as the HAL 9000, was privy to the specifics of the mission. As HAL was programmed to be deceptive concerning the parameters of the mission, this led to a conflict in the computer's logic circuits, forcing it to act against the interest of the ship's crew.

TOS 1x1 014

Doctor Elizabeth Dehner was a member of the Federation Starfleet and a psychiatrist stationed aboard the starship USS Enterprise. She began serving aboard the Enterprise in the year 2265 under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. Dehner met Kirk's First Officer, Lieutenant Commander Gary Mitchell who, like she, demonstrated high marks in extrasensory perception. Dehner and Mitchell did not immediately get along with one another and Gary regarded her as a "walking freezer unit".

The crew of the Enterprise recovered a disaster recorder left behind by the SS Valiant, a ship that disappeared near the Galactic Barrier more than two-hundred years ago. Exploring the region, they came upon a giant magnetic anomaly that swept across the ship, wreaking havoc with the onboard electrical systems. Dehner was caught in the power surge wrought by the anomaly and collapsed on the bridge of the ship. Mitchell was also affected by the anomaly, but to a greater extent and had to be taken to Sick Bay. Exposure to the magnetic radiation mutated him, evolving him into a higher order of being. He found that his innate ESP capabilities were greatly enhanced and he could read the thoughts of others and move things with his mind. He could also discharge bursts of electricity from his hands. Mitchell's personality was adversely altered as a result of this as well and he came to regard himself as a god, viewing all others as nothing more than insects. Dehner sympathized with Mitchell's situation and was the only crew member who did perceive him as a threat. At a special meeting to discuss the situation, Dehner posited that there was nothing wrong with a man evolving to a higher state of being.

ENT 4x4 008

Augments refers to a sub-race of human being who were cultivated through either selective breeding, genetic engineering or bio-augmentation. The terms is mostly found in the Star Trek mythos and was first coined by the fictional scientist Doctor Arik Soong. Variations of augmented human beings have been found in other science fiction media as well.

The most famous of augmented human beings within the mythos is Khan Noonien Singh, who was first introduced in season one of the original Star Trek television series, "Space Seed". Khan was a notorious historical figure in the internal mythology of the series and was a key figure in the Eugenics Wars, which took place during the late 1990s. Khan and his followers were products of selective breeding and as such, had enhanced strength, stamina and intelligence, far in excess to that of a normal human being. As the Eugenics Wars came to a close, Khan and his disciples fled from Earth aboard the ship SS Botany Bay where they remained in suspended animation for more than two-hundred years.
