Watson's Disease is a very contagious and lethal disease. The disease is so contagious, that it can wipe out an entire city in only a few weeks. Although their is no known cure for the disease, a vaccine does exist for it.
During 2654, the planet Fargo in the Dakota System had an outbreak of the disease. Unfortunately, the planet's colonists were a very proud people, and waited to call for help. By the time the Terran Confederation heard of the outbreak, the disease was spreading like wildfire. On 2654.139, the Confederation dispatched the TCS Tiger's Claw and several medical transports to render assistance and bring medical supplies.
