The Living Past is the second story in the Swiftfire series.
The USS Swiftfire is sent to survey a once dead planet that has recently shown extensive organic life. Their investigation of this biological anomaly leads them to discovery a lost history, one that dates to the climatic events that saw the birth of the United Federation of Planets over 200 years previous. A mystery that is further deepened when two of the crew find themselves back in the past taking part in the events. Events they know the result of. One where no one lives to tell about it. Can they change it? More importantly, should they?
