An alien appears in Stewart's dreams, but only seems to communicate if Stewart's dreams are erotic in nature. Stewart enlists both A.R.T. and Zalian's medicine cabinet in a dark, humiliating journey to make first contact. Karen slaps Michael in a rage over his tryst with Tina, and has to go undergo HR arbitration, overseen by an un-objective Tina.
In the early 22nd century the human race has mapped most of the known universe but failed to find alien life, and frankly gotten a little tired of the whole thing. A spaceship on a routine collection mission stumbles into the greatest discovery in history: an alternate universe, far stranger and way more dangerous than ours.
Now the ship's crew - a collection of over-matched rookies, feuding siblings, burned-out veterans and obsolete robots - has to explore this new universe to try and find a way back home alive.
