Captain Dylan Hunt and the crew of the Andromeda Ascendant set out on a mission to rebuild the Systems Commonwealth 300 years after its fall.
With a deadly plague on the loose, Andromeda, captained by the inexperienced Harper escorts medical ships through Drago-Kazov space while Beka seeks stragglers from the convoy. When both Beka’s ship and her enemy ships are damaged by each other, both women talk as they work to get their ships repaired in order to destroy the other one’s ship. Harper finds being a captain is not as easy as it seems. In the end, Beka proves she is the better repairman, and destroys the enemy’s ship, but not before both women get the chance to understand each other’s families and cultures. Dylan and Tyr try to stop the missile batteries trained on them; even if it means killing themselves along with their enemies, making the enemy surrender, but at a cost of wanting not just Tyr dead, but Andromeda’s crew as well. Dylan gets an explanation about Tyr’s “special cargo,” which causes him to mistrust Tyr’s intentions. After their mission is complete, Dylan denies Tyr access to his cargo, which in turn causes Tyr to mistrust Dylan, and shows that his “little stunt” has proven that he is vulnerable.
