River Song is aboard a spaceship heading towards an planet with a strange anomaly. The Seventh Doctor is in the brig and River doesn't recognize him but it becomes clear that he needed to save the ship and get to the bottom of what's going on.

The story is actually clever and has a great mystery as well as a solid resolution. I think Big Finish is getting a better handle on how to deal with River Song, and the challenge of her relating to pre-Time War Doctors. The first two times in the first box set and Doom Coalition 2, it felt a bit forced. Here, you have a clever plot that allows the Doctor and River Song to work together and also preserves their time line.

If I had any complaint, it would be that the supporting characters are forgettable stock characters, which is surprising for a Guy Adams script. Still, this is a nice bit of action Sci Fi that sets up the rest of the box set nicely.
