Half a decade before he would captain the U.S.S. Excalibur, Mackenzie Calhoun was a newly-promoted
commander and was assigned as the Executive Officer of the Excelsior-class U.S.S. Grissom. A few
short months after he reported aboard, the Grissom embarked on a fateful mission. The Grissom's captain
went into a dangerous situation that ended in tragedy. Executive Officer Calhoun had feared the worse
beforehand, but was incapable of preventing the disaster.
After the incident, which would later be called the Grissom Disaster, Calhoun was brought up on charges
and a court-martial was held. He was exonerated, but the whole situation prompted Calhoun to part company
But what exactly happened in the Grissom Disaster? And what was Calhoun's
involvement in it? That is the story that is told in Captain's Table: Once Burned.
