Eurydice - a salvage operator in the Delta
Chekov determines that the Enterprise has come out
of warp into the Delta Quadrant (due to events in
"Behemoth" Part 2), which
means it will take them decades to get back home (in the
Alpha Quadrant), even at maximum warp. This is similar to
the plight of the USS Voyager in the original
timeline in ST: Voyager, which also found itself
propelled into the Delta Quadrant and forced with a
decades-long journey home (though they managed to find some
shortcuts, etc. and make it back in seven years).
On page 4, the part in Lt. Zahra's hair is on the left
instead of the right as seen in previous issues.
Uhura remarks that the ship's universal translator
interpreted their guest's name as "Eurydice", which in Greek
mythology, was a woman who died from a snakebite. This is an
actual story from ancient Greek mythology.
Eurydice's ship has warp towing technology, which the
Federation apparently does not have.
