Project Final Frontier

Recent Developments

The Starfleet Advanced Programs Division was responsible for developing the theories used in creating the prototypes for the modified polaron emitters that were to be used to expose Gowron as a changeling. They believed that exposure to polaron radiation given off by these emitters would have a destabilizing effect on the changling's morphogenic matrix forcing him to revert to his natural state.
