Track Name: Conspiracy
Code 47, a message for Picard
Problem with Starfleet
Meet on Dytalix B
Three other ships in orbit
Each captain with their concerns
Unusual orders, unexplained deaths
Something must be done

Back on board, the captain is silent
Except to Counselor Troi
The rest of the crew, kept in the dark
And the ship put back on course

What can be done when the Federation is corrupt
Looking for answers when you don't know what to ask
Who can you trust when you're only sure of yourself?
A conspiracy is growing, who will survive?

A disturbance in space, wreckage of a ship
No explanation, Picard heads back to Earth
Three admirals respond, bringing a new form of life
Under its spell, Starfleet will obey

The plot exposed but not over yet
The creature wants another chance
Picard and Riker aim their phasers and blow off its head

What can be done when the Federation is corrupt
Looking for answers when you don't know what to ask
Who can you trust when you're only sure of yourself?
A conspiracy is growing, who will survive?

The plot exposed but not over yet
The creature wants another chance
Picard and Riker aim their phasers and blow off its head

What can be done when the Federation is corrupt
Looking for answers when you don't know what to ask
Who can you trust when you're only sure of yourself?
A conspiracy is growing, who will survive?
Track Name: I, Borg
Searching for strange new worlds
Five year mission of the Enterprise
Distress call, from a Class-M moon
Away team investigates the source

A Borg ship crashed, one still alive
Captain Picard orders to abort
The Doctor can't comply
Beamed up for a closer look

The Borg have arrived in their quadrant of space
Seeking technology to copy and exploit
The conflict between their mission and safety
To seek new life or try to destroy

We are Borg, resistance is futile
We are Borg, we will assimilate
We are Borg, you will serve us
We are Borg, surrender or die

Hugh can become a means
To destroy the entire race
System, total failure
Genocide, but is it right?

A Borg ship approaches on long range sensors
31 hours to seek the third of five
One by one the crew change their minds
Not in their mandate to destroy a life

The Borg have arrived in their quadrant of space
Seeking technology to copy and exploit
The conflict between their mission and safety
To seek new life or try to destroy

We are Borg, resistance is futile
We are Borg, we will assimilate
We are Borg, you will serve us
We are Borg, surrender or die
Track Name: Yesterday's Enterprise
A rift in time and space
And everything is changed
Starfleet at war with the Klingon empire
Lieutenant Tasha Yar
Tactical command
A military ship
And military minds

Enterprise 1701-C, thought to have been destroyed
After 22 years now face to face with 1701-D

Impossible
A mystery
Of quantum reality
Worlds collide
Lives are changed
How can this be yesterday's Enterprise?

Only one way
To set the balance right
Enterprise C
Must go back in time
125 crew must be sacrificed
But they uphold their honor and go willingly

Enterprise 1701-C, thought to have been destroyed
After 22 years now face to face with 1701-D

Impossible
A mystery
Of quantum reality
Worlds collide
Lives are changed
How can this be yesterday's Enterprise?
Track Name: Darmok
Reclusive race of people
The children of Tama
Contact the Federation
At El-Adrel IV
Previous encounters
Were futile at best
Unable to deciper
Their enigmatic tongue

Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra, he said
A message plain to the speaker
But a mystery to Picard
Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra, he said
Two heroes joined in battle
Who left in victory

Beamed down to the planet
Unsure of his role
Unwilling to fight a Tamarian
But can't communicate
A monster appears
And everything is clear
Dathon and Picard
Must fight side by side

Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra, he said
A message plain to the speaker
But a mystery to Picard
Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra, he said
Two heroes joined in battle
Who left in victory
Track Name: Skin of Evil
Crashlanded shuttle, on a planet devoid of life
Away team is sent to rescue Counselor Troi
No warning, no reason
Tasha struck down dead
Killed for amusement by a being who feels no shame

The emotions of a race of beings seeking freedom from sin
Cast out in the form of a creature who lives on Vagra II

No redemption, no salvation
Darkness is his home
Left here for centuries, rotting inside
The evil of an ancient race
Malevolent, vicious, destructive, corrosive,
Blackened, devoid of light
Armus is death, Armus is hate, Armus is cruelty

A second team is sent,
Riker engulfed
The captain beams down
To negotiate with the being
Confronting his rage,
Armus is weakening
Back on the ship,
The crew mourns the loss of a friend

The emotions of a race of beings seeking freedom from sin
Cast out in the form of a creature who lives on Vagra II

No redemption, no salvation
Darkness is his home
Left here for centuries, rotting inside
The evil of an ancient race
Malevolent, vicious, destructive, corrosive,
Blackened, devoid of light
Armus is death, Armus is hate, Armus is cruelty
