Faced with the impending detonation of the Genesis Device, Captain Spock enters a deadly radiation-contaminated area and restores power to the warp drive just in time to allow the Enterprise to outrun the Genesis Planet.

- RSD 2/2206.25 (25 June): The Klingon Bird of Prey cripples the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701 shortly after it arrives at the Genesis Planet.

The Genesis Effect proves its instability when the Genesis Planet disintegrates.
- RSD 2/2206.27 (27 June): The Bird of Prey lands on Vulcan, and Spock's mind is reunited with his body in the ancient rite of fal tor pan.

- RSD 2/2207.01 (1 July): Operation Grand Deterrence, a second large-scale fleet maneuver, begins under the command of Commodore G.X. Ilanenko.

The Federation Council refuses, saying that Kirk is subject only to Federation jurisprudence.
- RSD 2/2209.27 (27 September): Admiral Kirk and his party leave Vulcan in the Klingon Bird of Prey. The group is bound for Earth, where all except the resurrected Spock face court-martial for the theft and destruction of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701.
- RSD 2/2209.29 (29 September): The alien spacecraft reaches Earth, neutralizing any starship that impedes its progress.

- RSD 2/2210.15 (15 October): Star Fleet Command's Naval Construction Contract Number 1786, under construction at Sol III, reaches completion. Although this Enterprise class Mk.

- RSD 2/2212: Lancelot Worthington III sells the Romulans information that a Star Fleet Intelligence operative has wormed his way into the anti-cloaking device staff. Because of the careful plan begun 18 months earlier, the Romulans confirm this intelligence and remove all of the research staff connected with the project. The BioResearch mole becomes the project's new head. He begins to delay the project, to steal parts for the new cloaking device, and to make untraceable copies of the anti-cloaking device plans.
