While a Federation team where investigating an uncharted planet, a lethal adversary (Predator), fired upon then seeing them as a threat, because of their security officer's weaponry. All members of the party were all killed.
The Federation team sent a distress call back to Starfleet Command as well as tricorder readings of the creature that attacked them, before they were all killed. These readings and data where then passed on to the nearest responding ship in that sector of space, which was the Enterprise.
Commander Data has been selected to go down to the surface of the planet via shuttle craft, to apprehend the creature which attacked the other Starfleet officers. Data has accessed all the tricorder readings and using the shuttle craft has been able to produce an energy burst that has disrupted the Predators cloaking device.
Data is unaware that the Predator is in the middle of an Alien hunt. There are around 20 Aliens roaming in the Forrest like terrain. Data cannot call the Enterprise for help, as an energy storm is blocking his communicator, Data's tricorder is however functioning, and has alerted him to the presence of other life forms.
Data is armed with his hand phaser and a phaser rifle, and his emotion chip is switched off.
Can Data capture the Predator and bring him back to stand trial, or will the Predator, or the Aliens stop Data from fulfilling his mission?
