McNeill began work on the episode, entitled "Countdown", earlier this week, according to StarTrek.com. This will be the director's second episode this season after "Twilight" and his fourth for the series overall.
No plot details are currently known about "Countdown", but it will feature another appearance by the race of Sphere Builders.
