Unbeknownst to all but Lieutenant Tigan, the Ajax and her crew have been requisitioned by Starfleet Intelligence as a localized, mobile asset in the Raeyan Sector Block and given fully independent status, rather than being administratively tethered to Starbase 611 as a 'Garrison Vessel'. While patrolling the Federation side of the Romulan Neutral Zone, the Ajax receives a priority message from Starfleet Intelligence, ordering them to break off their patrol immediately and proceed at their best possible speed to Cestus III to extract an intelligence asset they had inserted months earlier.

The Ajax returns to Starbase 611 in the Kovar system for a ship refit and to complete its crew rotation. Only the Lieutenant in command and the Tactical & Security Petty Officer have chosen to remain aboard for another rotation. Which means new crew will be joining the Ajax for the next rotation.
