EPISODE ONE (6/12/16)

SUMMARY: Jerry bids farewell to Amanda before going on a ten-year mission in space on the starship Dreadnaught; she promises to wait for him. However, Amanda is actually a hologram; Jerry is already away on his mission, reliving his last moments with his girlfriend, but with one difference: in the simulation, she promises to wait for him; in real life, he set her free. Dr. Booth, the ship's psychiatrist, thinks he's engaging in unhealthy behavior - why would he remind himself of such a regret again and again? After she leaves, Amanda suddenly comes to life - but she no longer has the personality of his girlfriend; the hologram seems to have become sentient of its own accord, though nobody by Jerry can see her. Jerry is called to the bridge, where the Dreadnought is preparing for the first-ever use of a warp drive. However, the crew has spotted something odd: not only has the asteroid belt that's meant to be in this region somehow gone missing, but there is another spacecraft, identical to theirs. A boarding crew is formed, and Amanda tells Jerry that anybody who boards that ship is doomed... and she's going to kill anybody who stays.

EPISODE TWO (6/18/16)

SUMMARY: The away team aboard the duplicate Dreadnaught find the ship deserted, and make a horrifying discovery: a recording by the ship's captain - their own captain - who is dying, his hand missing; in his final log entry, he gives a warning that is interrupted by something unseen attacking him. Meanwhile, back on the Dreadnaught "One," Mickler's attempt to have some sexy time in the holodeck with simulated ladies is interrupted by the Amanda hologram, who breaks his neck and announces via the ship's intercom that she's going to kill everyone else on board.

EPISODE THREE (6/20/16)

SUMMARY: As the away team continue to soak in the horror of the Captain's final recording, Jerry theorizes that this duplication is a result of the warp drive. Hickey flirts with him, but is disappointed when it seems that Jerry is crazy - he's the only one who can see Dr. Booth - who, it turns out, actually died two years ago in cryosleep. Meanwhile, back on the Dreadnaught One, the Captain and Chaps find Mickler - paralyzed but still alive. They are met by Amanda, who says she is puzzled by the fact that Jerry left his love behind, and wants to understand the human heart - so she rips out Chaps' heart. As the Captain flees, Amanda finds that the organ she's removed doesn't answer her question... so her "investigation" will have to continue.
