- Ambassador Emanuel Tagore is recalled to Earth to reevaluate the peace
mission between the Klingon Empire and the Federation, so that the
Ambassador may be exposed to the mood, as well as the decisions, of the
Babel Conference (the last Babel Conference to be held on Earth). Krenn and
his crew escort Dr. Tagore back to Earth in the cruiser Mirror (a D5-class
cruiser). They are escorted through Federation space by Admiral
Douglas Tancred Shepherd, the great-grandfather of Captain Marcus Eneg
Shepherd, commanding the USS Tomar. After receiving the
decision of Babel Conference Referendum 72, the closing of the embassy, and
the permenant recall of the Federation Ambassador, the Mirror stops a

of human thinking from Starships is wrong in principle, and no further moves
along these lines are made.
- Captain Kirk orders the Enterprise to cross the border into
Romulan space, apparently acting irrationally as a result of the stress of
his position. The ship is quickly surrounded by Romulan battlecruisers, who
order it to surrender. Kirk reveals to his crew that he is acting on

itself in orbit around Questar M-17 and encounters a strange starship
inhabited by an evil shapeless alien. Kirk and Spock devise a plan to steer
the U.S.S. Enterprise toward Questar M-17, tricking the creature into
believing that the Enterprise will be destroyed. The creature flees
for its life while the Enterprise frees itself from Questar's gravity
pull by employing the slingshot effect, leaving the creature to orbit
forever around the star.
- By using the Guardian of Forever, Kirk, Spock, and the historian Erikson
explore the planet Orion's past. However, upon returning to the present, no
one seems to recognize Mr. Spock; the U.S.S. Enterprise first officer
for the past five years has been an Andorian named Thelin. A search of the U.S.S.
Enterprise's memory bank reveals that Spock, the son of Sarek and Amanda
died while still a child; his death caused the couple to breakup. Spock
recalls that during his "kahs-wan"—a Vulcan coming-of-age
ritual—Selek, Spock's distant cousin, had saved his life. Spock realizes
that to put the present right again he must return to the past and become
his own cousin to save himself. Returning to the Vulcan of his childhood
through the Guardian, Spock presents himself to his younger self as Selek,
and subsequently saves the boy's life. In the process young Spock's pet
"sehlat" is mortally injured. The boy chooses to compassionately
end his pet's suffering and in doing so sets the young half-human,
half-Vulcan on a path toward embracing Vulcan traditions. Upon returning to
the present, Spock finds the timeline and his place on the U.S.S.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise crew learns that a massive, planet-destroying
extragalactic entity has entered Federation space and threatens every planet
in the galaxy. The starship intercepts the gaseous form in an inhabited
planetary sector. Almost immediately the cloud envelops the planet Alondra,
breaking it into small pieces in seconds. The cloud proceeds on a direct
course for planet Mantilles, inhabited by nearly 100 million people. Due to
its proximity to the cloud, the Enterprise is pulled inside and is
threatened by an antimatter barrage. The ship's shields barely hold together
while Spock discovers that the cloud is a living entity with a brain. He
also discovers that they can escape through the top of the entity if they
act quickly. The Enterprise travels through the creature's body while
antimatter continues to drain the ship's power. Scotty, however, is able to
create a power regeneration system by using part of the entity's body. Kirk
realizes that the only way to save the planet may be to kill the creature by
exploding the Enterprise while inside. Instead, Spock mind-melds with
the cloud and allows the creature to see glimpses of human life. The
creature comes to understand that its food -- planets -- contains living
creatures. The cloud allows the U.S.S. Enterprise to leave peacefully
and agrees to depart the galaxy.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise enters an uncharted sector of space where
Federation and Klingon vessels have been reported missing every 27 years.
While in the Taurean system signals begin to affect the male crew, causing
them to hallucinate about beautiful women in peaceful surroundings. Kirk,
Spock, and McCoy beam down to the source of the signals. After arriving on
the planet they are taken prisoner and rendered unconscious by a group of
beautiful, golden skinned women. Scotty takes command of Enterprise
but begins to act peculiar himself. Upon waking, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy
discover that they are aging rapidly as a result of life-draining headbands
they are forced to wear. McCoy administers cortropine to counter the aging
process while Spock, having obtained a communicator, unsuccessfully tries to
contact the ship. On board the Enterprise, Uhura has taken command
due to Scotty's irrational behavior, while Nurse Chapel acts as Chief
Medical Officer. Uhura orders an all-female landing party to transport down
to rescue the men. The siren women explain to them that they had fled from a
dying planet only to arrive on Taurus II where they encountered the
life-draining force. The women developed a biological resistance to the
force, effective only if they can replenish their own life-force every 27
years. Thus they capture men to drain their energy. The landing party
eventually beams the male landing party back up to the ship just in time to
replenish their life-force. Kirk agrees to transport the women to a safe
world where they will again prosper.
- While returning to a famine-ridden Sherman's planet with a cargo of
quintotriticale, the U.S.S. Enterprise encounters a Klingon warship,
commanded by Captain Koloth, who is detaining the trader Cyrano Jones. Kirk
rescues Jones from the Klingon vessel and discovers him to be carrying a new
breed of tribbles which have been genetically altered to slow their
reproductive process. However, these tribbles are unable to resist the cargo
of quintotriticale the U.S.S. Enterprise is carrying. The Enterprise
crew soon realizes that the consumption causes the tribbles to grow to a
tremendous size. So much so, that Jones' tribble-eating glommer is unable to
devour them. The Klingons return and demand that Kirk hand over Jones,
accusing Jones of stealing the glommer from them. Instead of handing Jones
over to the Klingons, Kirk returns the animal along with some of the
- Near the Romulan/Federation Neutral Zone, a long-lost philanthropist,
Carter Winston, is discovered on board a damaged one-man vessel. He is
reunited with his fiancée, Lieutenant Anne Nored, on board the U.S.S.
Enterprise. Immediately following their reunion, Winston tells her that
he has changed and can no longer marry her. The Enterprise computer reveals
that Winston is actually a shape-shifting Vendorian. Winston eventually
takes the Captain's form and orders Sulu to steer the Enterprise into
the Neutral Zone. Kirk discovers the ruse and orders the ship out of the
Neutral Zone. Romulan ships, having been advised of the breach of the
Neutral Zone, surround the Enterprise. The Vendorian, disguised as an
Enterprise crewman, damages the deflector shield, which requires two
hours to repair. Later, the creature reveals his identity to Nored,
explaining that her former fiancé is dead but since he had absorbed so many
emotions from human males, he indeed can love her. The Romulans proceed to
attack the U.S.S. Enterprise. Realizing that he has put his love in
jeopardy by destroying the ship's shields, the shape-shifter forms himself
into a deflector shield around the ship. After the Romulans retreat, the
Vendorian reveals that he is a spy for the Romulan Empire, but he could not
allow Nored to die in battle. Kirk informs him that he will stand trial but
his efforts to save the ship will be considered. Nored tells him that he is
much like her former lover and that he will enjoy life on Earth, perhaps
even together with her.
- While visiting the recently discovered planet Phylos, the U.S.S.
Enterprise landing party discovers an apparently abandoned city. While
exploring the city Sulu picks up a plant and is poisoned. As the landing
party tries to save Sulu, the alien species that inhabit the planet approach
and save Sulu's life. Upon further investigation of the alien creatures, who
are plantlike beings called Phylosians, the crew discovers that the poison
that affected Sulu was accidentally brought to the planet by a visitor who
subsequently worked to find a cure. The Phylosians call this visitor
"Master" and "Savior." The landing party eventually
discover that this visitor was actually a Terran scientist by the name of
Dr. Starros Keniclius who has since died. Now a giant clone of Dr. Starros
Keniclius, by the name of Keniclius Five, has taken his place. The giant
wishes to clone Spock to create an intergalactic peacemaker. Ignoring Kirk's
insistence that the Universe has become a virtually peaceful conglomeration
of worlds, Keniclius Five clones Spock, crippling the Vulcan almost to the
point of death. Kirk realizes the only way to save Spock is to recite
aspects of Vulcan philosophy on life and death to Keniclius Five. Kirk
convinces the clone that the new Spock is but a copy and not the original.
The clone Spock saves the other's life through a Vulcan mind meld and the
duplicate remains on the planet with Keniclius to revitalize that world's
- While investigating the theory of creation, the U.S.S. Enterprise
is caught inside an energy/matter tornado and pulled to the center of the
galaxy. All computer systems fail and the crew begins to lose consciousness
when a devil-like creature named Lucien appears on the bridge. The creature
repairs the ship's systems and takes the crew to explore his planet,
Megas-Tu, but almost immediately returns them to the ship. The crew begin to
experiment with magic after the encounter, much to Spock's dismay. The
Megans begin to take notice of the crew and return to the ship in phantasm
form. They return the Enterprise bridge crew to their planet in a
witch-hunt trial where Lucien is accused of bringing evil to Megas-Tu. Spock
and Kirk defend the crew and Lucien, but their arguments fail and Kirk is
forced to use his new magic against the prosecutor. Kirk explains that the
Megans can only win if they become like the Earthlings they fear. Kirk then
tells the jury that he will give his own life for an alien's rights, which
impresses the Megans. They learn that Lucien was the basis for Earth's
original conception of the devil, and the Megans, realizing that the Enterprise's
visit to their dimension was an accident, help the crew to return to their
- The U.S.S. Enterprise returns to the amusement planet where the
crew had once taken shore leave. The crew begin imagining their fantasies
when things go wrong: McCoy envisions a southern Earth plantation, but
instead the Queen of Hearts appears screaming "Off with his head!"
followed by the arrival of a spear throwing deck of cards. When Uhura tries
to rescue McCoy, she is captured by a hovercraft robot. McCoy informs Kirk
of the dangerous situation, whereupon all crew members are recalled to the
starship. Realizing that Uhura is still trapped on the planet, Kirk attempts
to contact the planet's Keeper. Kirk's landing party discovers the Keeper's
tombstone, and notices that the planet, lacking the Keeper's influence, has
become a dangerous world run by robots. The robots begin to pester the crew
and the orbiting Enterprise. Deep underground, Uhura tries to outwit
the planet's master computer, while Kirk and Spock trick it into allowing
them passage into the inner caves. The crew convince the computer of its
usefulness as a peaceful and creative conscience and it ends the
malfunctions on the planet and starship. While the crew returns to enjoy
their shore leave, Spock continues discussions with the master computer.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise receives orders to find Harry Mudd, a
Federation outlaw, on the planet Motherlode; Mudd is accused of selling a
fake love potion to miners. Upon the U.S.S. Enterprise's arrival,
Mudd demonstrates the potion on a woman who Spock discovers to actually be a
reptilian illusion. Angered by this the miners begin to attack Mudd, but he
is rescued by the U.S.S. Enterprise. Aboard ship, and after
convincing Nurse Chapel to try the potion on Spock, Mudd steals a
shuttlecraft. When Chapel discovers that the potion doesn't actually work,
she becomes bitter and sets out to confront Mudd. During a fight between
Mudd and Chapel, special love crystals are broken near an air vent and
permeate throughout the ship. Without warning, the delayed potion begins to
affect Spock. Shortly, the potion begins to affect the entire crew. Spock
becomes so enamored with Chapel that he will do anything to rescue her. Kirk
accompanies him to find Mudd, but are attacked on the planet by large rock
creatures. Unable to transport to the vessel because of the potion's affect
on the crew, Kirk uses the crystals to make the creatures become docile and
loving. Eventually the potion wears off and the crew beam everyone back to
the ship, but then the potion's after effects cause hatred and animosity
among the crew. Mudd is placed in the brig, where he confesses to other con
jobs and is once again sent away for rehabilitation.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise receives a garbled message while exploring
the dead supernova, Arachna. The only comprehensible portion of the signal,
which emanates from the star Cepheus, is the word "terratin." Upon
investigation the U.S.S. Enterprise encounters a planet of
crystalline structure, barraged by volcanic activity. While in orbit, a
flash of light passes through the ship, paralyzing the crew. Then the crew
begins to realize that all organic matter on the ship is shrinking; all body
molecules are degenerating. Spock calculates that in a matter of minutes the
entire crew will stand centimeters tall. By using man-made ladders, the crew
gets to the bridge consoles and use their collective strength to press the
transporter buttons. Kirk transports to the planet's surface and immediately
grows to full size, since the transporter can change all matter to
previously detailed size and shape. While on the planet, Kirk encounters a
miniature city, but is shortly beamed back to the ship by the transporter's
automatic settings. Upon returning, he discovers that his crew has been
transported off the ship to the planet surface. Kirk threatens the miniature
city, demanding the crew's return. The leader informs Kirk that the
lightning attack was the only way to get the attention of the starship,
because their city is being threatened by volcanic activity. Spock discovers
the Terratin natives to be mutated descendants of a missing scientific
expedition; the survivors had named the planet Terra Ten. The crew is
transported back to the ship, but since the Terratins cannot be restored to
their original size, they and their entire city are beamed aboard the U.S.S.
Enterprise to be taken to a more stable planet.
- While exploring the Delta Triangle, where many starships have disappeared,
the U.S.S. Enterprise is attacked by several Klingon vessels. During
the fight, the Enterprise and a Klingon ship slip into a space-time
warp where a starship graveyard is discovered to hold ships from all over
the galaxy. The Klingon ship fires at the Enterprise but the torpedo
is neutralized and the two ships captains are brought to a trial by the
inhabitants of this dimension, called Elysia. The council is made up of all
races from across the universe and led by a Vulcan, Xerius. He explains that
no one has been able to escape from this area, so the descendants of the
crews have learned to co-exist in a peaceful state. Violence is not
permitted and all weaponry is immediately neutralized. Scotty discovers that
the timewarp is disintegrating the Enterprise's dilithium crystals,
and insists that they must leave the trap soon or they will be powerless.
The Klingons agree to link ships and cooperate by sharing warp power and
personnel to escape. However, Spock learns that the Klingon Captain, Kor,
wants to destroy the Enterprise when they break free of the time warp
by using a specially calibrated explosive device in the warp drive. The Enterprise
and Klingon crew celebrate their impending escape but when a Klingon slips
away to plant the explosive, Kirk stops her and diffuses the bomb. The two
ships leave the time warp and separate, with Kor claiming full credit for
saving the two vessels.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise arrives to study the planet Argo—a
water-based planet where earthquakes caused the land masses to sink—for
the benefit of other Federation worlds that will encounter similar quakes.
The crew lands in a specially designed aqua-shuttle but is immediately
attacked by a sea monster and Kirk and Spock become trapped in the monster's
grip. Five days later, McCoy, Scott, and Lt. Clayton find the missing
officers; they have been transformed into water breathers by the monster.
Kirk and Spock explore the submerged Argo and find a group of inhabitants
who hate any air-breathers. Hesitantly, the Aquans agree to perform surgery
to return Kirk and Spock to normal, but when Scotty dives down to warn of an
impending quake, they become fearful of air-breathing spies. Kirk and Spock
are deemed treacherous and are sentenced to death. Rila, a water breather,
agrees to help them if they will in turn help him find a buried city and a
way to reverse the mutation. They are successful and obtain the necessary
medicine to help Kirk and Spock, but Kirk nearly dies from the vaccination.
In orbit, the U.S.S. Enterprise uses its phasers to hit the
uninhabited sections of the planet in an attempt to move the quake's
epicenter away from the Aquan city. Grateful for saving their lives, the
young Aquans make their records available to the Federation and decide to
use the new found medicine to reverse their water-breathing mutations and
resume life above ground.
- In the shuttlecraft Copernicus, Spock, Uhura, and Sulu are
en-route to Starbase 25 to deliver a stasis box—a rare artifact
of the Slaver culture—which stops time inside so any object can last
forever. The now-extinct Slavers used these objects to carry weapons,
valuables, and other scientific instruments and data. The boxes can detect
each other and evidence shows that another device is located nearby. Spock
begins to investigate. The shuttle lands on an ice planet where hostile
Kzinti lie in ambush with an empty stasis box. The Kzinti once controlled
the entire empire but now are bound to keeping peace. However, many Kzinti
still take part in raiding Federation shipping and seek Slaver weapons to
regain control of their empire. The Kzinti take the shuttle crew hostage in
an effort to take the box and its contents. The Kzinti leader obtains the
weapon, but while tampering with it he enables the crew to escape. Spock
steals back the weapon, but Uhura is recaptured. After Sulu creates an
explosion with the weapon, it is recaptured by the Kzinti, who are killed
when the device self-destructs.
- The disappearance of a scientific team lures the U.S.S. Enterprise
to investigate near Lactra VII. The Starship Ariel is located there,
abandoned, with the Captain having transported to the planet's surface. The U.S.S.
Enterprise crew beams down to discover a series of unusually juxtaposed
environments. On the planet the crew meets the Lactrans, a group of 20-foot
slugs with intelligent capacities far beyond their own; they capture the U.S.S.
Enterprise crew and imprison them along with the three remaining Ariel
crew members. Ariel's Lieutenant Randolph has become ill, but the Lactrans
are unaware, as their methods of communication are highly sophisticated.
Spock can partially read the Lactran thoughts; he realizes that they are
much more advanced than Vulcans and they are amused by his attempts at
communication. Spock tricks a Lactran child to bring him a communicator and
medical kit that are located outside a force field. Kirk contacts the ship
and they are beamed up along with the child. On the starship, the child
reads all the information contained in the library computer, but the child's
parents are worried and almost kill Kirk in an attempt to contact him.
Scotty beams down with the child, who learns that humans are not pets for
Lactran amusement. The child informs the other Lactrans, who release the
crew from confinement and the ships leaves with a message from the Lactrans—"humans
may return when they grow up, in 20 or 30 centuries."
- The U.S.S. Enterprise arrives at the Vedala asteroid, where Kirk
and Spock are summoned to learn about a stolen religious artifact that could
ignite a galaxy-wide holy war, a jihad. A team of specialists are called in
to recover the item with Kirk and Spock: Tchar—the hereditary prince of
the Skorr, Sord—a powerful reptilian, a master lockpick—Em/3/Green, and
Lara—a great hunter. The Vedalan tells the team that the artifact dates
back two centuries, when Tchar's people were fighters and a religious
leader, Alar, came to teach fundamentals of peace. Alar's brain patterns
were preserved in the sculpture, the "Soul of the Skorr." Now the
device has been stolen and is hidden on the very unstable "mad
planet." The Vedala transports the group to the planet where they
encounter harsh weather, quakes, volcanic lava flow, and severe winds. After
barely escaping a lava river, the team finds itself nearing a position that
Tchar had originally spotted from the air. Tchar flies ahead to investigate
the fortress in which the object is kept. Meanwhile, Kirk and Lara scout
ahead to explore the terrain. Rejoining the group, they head for the
fortress on foot to rendezvous with Tchar. Upon reaching the structure, Em/3/Green
picks the lock, but the team is attacked by a group of mechanical birds who
are protecting the building. They narrowly make it inside and after
surviving a set of traps, they find the sculpture, but conclude that it must
have been Tchar who originally stole the object. Tchar admits his treachery,
saying that his people have become a docile race, and the ensuing war will
make them great again. Tchar tells them that their mission must always
remain secret so that no one will learn about the treachery. Kirk and Spock
return to the U.S.S. Enterprise noting that, remarkably, only two
minutes had passed since they beamed to the asteroid.
- A dreaded disease, choriocytosis, strikes the U.S.S. Enterprise.
All except Spock are cured, as the illness is fatal only to Vulcans. With
the starship on course to a Starfleet Academy dedication ceremony on Deneb
V, Spock realizes that he has as little as three days to live. The cure for
the disease is strobolin, which is found on only a few worlds in the galaxy,
the closest of which, Beta Canopus, is four days away. The U.S.S.
Potemkin obtains the drug and transports it to the U.S.S. Huron,
en route to the Enterprise. Without warning, the U.S.S. Huron
is attacked by a vessel of Orion designation; the drug and a cargo of
dilithium crystals are stolen. The U.S.S. Enterprise encounters the
Orion ship in a volatile asteroid field by detecting the dilithium crystals
in the ship's cargo bay. Kirk attempts to negotiate for the drug in exchange
for not mentioning the stolen dilithium crystals, but the Orions' suspect a
ruse. Kirk agrees to meet the Orion captain on an asteroid knowing that it
might be a trap, but worth the risk for Spock's life. The Orion captain
arrives carrying a bomb capable of destroying the entire asteroid but Scotty
beams the explosive to the Enterprise and discharges it. Scotty
then beams up the two captains and forces the Orion captain to stand trial
for piracy. With the medicine in hand, Spock is saved.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise is hosting Commander Ari bn Bem of planet
Pandro as an independent observer of the Federation. Starfleet is eager to
open diplomatic relations with the Pandronians, due to their advanced
medical knowledge. Though he has not joined the crew on previous missions,
Bem accompanies a landing party to explore Delta Theta III and, due to his
non-violent nature, secretly replaces their weapons with non-functioning
ones. The planet is populated by preindustrial aborigines; the Federation is
interested in gathering information about the world for research purposes.
While walking through the dense terrain, the crew scans lifeforms emanating
from the forest and Bem immediately runs toward them against direct orders.
Bem passes through the thick rain forest by splitting into several body
parts and floating through the cracks. Kirk and Spock split off but are
unable to track Bem through the dense woods. They later discover that he has
been captured by a group of angry aborigines. Scott and Sulu beam back to
the U.S.S. Enterprise and discover a force field developing around
the small village, but they cannot contact Kirk or Spock. At night, Kirk and
Spock attempt to rescue Bem from the natives but are also captured. Bem
explains that he took Starfleet equipment because he dislikes violence and
wanted to see how the captain could react without such devices. He returns
the devices to Kirk and Spock, who manage escape only to be paralyzed by a
supernatural force surrounding the area. The entity tells them not to
interfere with her "children," the people of this world. Bem
escapes and Kirk and Spock are again captured. The entity demands that they
leave immediately but Kirk tells Spock that they cannot leave without Bem.
They arrange a search party to beam down, now that the entity has permitted
communications. Bem is found and he realizes that he has failed in his
mission and must die. The entity tells him he will not be killed because
people must learn from their errors. The crew returns to the ship, where
Spock ponders the existence of such a god-like entity and how they are all
really children to the universe.
- While studying an asteroid, the U.S.S. Enterprise is attacked by
three Romulan vessels which claim that the Federation ship has trespassed
into Romulan space. The U.S.S. Enterprise hides from the Romulans
in a gaseous energy field to avoid the close range barrage from the war
ships. The gas from the cloud enters the Enterprise's computer systems and
affects the functions of the computer. When the ship leaves for repairs the
computer proceeds to play practical jokes on the crew by altering various
ship functions, so that drinks leak and silverware bends. Spock is
humiliated by his own microscope, and Scott is pelted with fruits and pies
from a food dispenser. The crew discovers the source of the jokes when
outrageous laughter is heard over the intercom. Sulu, McCoy and Uhura are
trapped in a recreation room and Scott is unable to fix the logic circuits
because gravity has been shut off. Life support systems are replaced by
laughing gas, which causes pain to Vulcans. The ship returns itself to the
Neutral Zone, thereby inciting a Romulan attack. The ship then plays a
practical joke on the Romulans by creating a balloon-shaped like the U.S.S.
Enterprise. Kirk tricks the ship back into the energy field, which is
followed closely by the Romulans. While in the energy field the computer is
returned to normal but the Romulan vessel begins to be affected by the same
symptoms. Kirk decides to wait a bit before telling the Romulans how to
remove their practical joker.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise arrives at Dramia I to deliver medical
supplies when Dr. McCoy is arrested for mass slaughter and imprisoned.
Nineteen years prior, the doctor had created an inoculation program for a
Saurian virus on Dramia II, but immediately following his departure a plague
virtually wiped out the entire population. Kirk, aware of the swift Dramian
justice system, worries about McCoy's future while McCoy thinks that the
plague may have been his fault. Kirk and Spock begin an investigation into
the plague and realize they must go to Dramia II to draw some conclusions.
En route, they are pursued by Demos, the Dramian head of security. The U.S.S.
Enterprise entraps the Dramian ship and holds it impounded. Forcing
Demos to accompany them, the ship passes through an orbiting aurora and the
three beam down to the planet. On the planet, they pursue a plague survivor,
Kol-Tai. When they finally catch up to him, he tells them of McCoy's courage
and ability to save the Dramians from the virus, 19 years ago. Kol-Tai
agrees to testify of McCoy's behalf, but the crew must return to Dramia I
quickly or it will be too late. Complicating matters, Kol-Tai brings the
plague on board the U.S.S. Enterprise, and infects the entire crew,
except an immune Spock. Kol-Tai may not live long enough to testify, while
Demos still believes McCoy guilty but has himself contracted the fatal
disease. Spock illegally breaks McCoy out of prison to cure the plague on
the U.S.S. Enterprise. On board McCoy discovers that he is innocent and that
the aurora recently encountered is the actual cause of the plague. By using
blood samples from the infected, McCoy cures the plague and shares the
information with the Dramians. Demos and the Dramian government agrees to
dismiss the unorthodox jailbreak and drop the charges.
- A mysterious probe that scanned a Federation system and sent a signal into
outer space is pursued by the U.S.S. Enterprise, which follows its
propulsion trail to see if it can catch the probe. While tacking the probe,
the Enterprise encounters an alien vessel that is surrounded by a
magnificent energy field which proceeds to encompass the Federation ship.
The alien ship transforms itself into the shape of a large feathered serpent
which reveals itself as Kulkukan of ancient Mayan-Aztec legend. Upset over
being forgotten by Earthlings, Kulkukan transports Kirk, Scott, McCoy, and
Ensign Dawson Walking Bear to his ship to solve an enigmatic puzzle. If they
succeed, Kulkukan will reveal himself. If they fail, the crew will all
perish. The four crew members are transported to an Earth-like city filled
with many cultures and must force a light source to strike a certain space
on an ancient pyramid. When they accomplish the task, Kulkukan appears as
the winged serpent, alleging to be their master. Transported to an ominous
"life-room," the crew members notice a variety of creatures from
around the galaxy, including the ferocious, but now peaceful, Capellan
power-cat. Kirk explains that they cannot accept Kulkukan as their master,
despite his contributions to mankind. On the U.S.S. Enterprise,
Spock discovers a way to break the energy field surrounding the ship,
distracting Kulkukan from the other crewmen. The men release the animals
from their cages, thereby creating a chaos which Kulkukan is unable to
control. The power-cat traps Kulkukan and prepares to kill him; Kulkukan is
forced to reveal himself as a mortal. Kirk saves Kulkukan and thus teaches
him a valuable lesson about human survival. Kulkukan leaves as an old,
broken mortal, and Kirk decides that the price of infinite knowledge is too
high to pay.
- The U.S.S. Enterprise is escorting Commodore Robert April and his
wife Dr. Sarah April, the first captain and chief medical officer of the U.S.S.
Enterprise, to Commodore April's retirement ceremonies on Babel. While
en route, an alien vessel passes the U.S.S. Enterprise at warp 36
toward heading directly into the Beta Niobe nova. Locking onto the alien
ship with the tractor beam, the U.S.S. Enterprise is dragged along,
unable to break free; both ships fall into the nova and arrive in an
antimatter universe where time flows backwards. The alien ship's pilot,
Karla Five, is an explorer from the reverse universe who accidentally became
lost in our universe. He leads the U.S.S. Enterprise to his home
world of Arret to help find a way back into normal space. On Arret, the crew
encounter an old man, who is Karla Five's son, and a baby, his father. The
crew begin to notice that they too are getting younger as they remain in the
negative universe. In time they discover a dead star that corresponds to the
nova in the positive universe; it is the gateway for the U.S.S.
Enterprise's return. Though Karla Five's ship is strong enough to pull
the starship through the nova, the Enterprise crew is now too young to pilot
it. Commodore April, now a young handsome man, takes command of the ship
steering it back through the nova. Using the transporter, April restores the
crew to their proper age. The Aprils consider remaining young, but instead
decide that they have lived their lives to the fullest. Once back to their
original ages, the Federation decides to change the mandatory retirement age
and the Aprils are able to continue their careers.

As part of a program to strengthen the Federation’s strategic position along
the Klingon and Romulan borders, Deep Space-4 undergoes a major systems
upgrade. The upgrade includes additional mission modules along with the
appropriate Star Fleet and civilian personnel to support the expanded missions.
In addition to its strategic importance, the area of space it occupies is of
particular interest to Starfleet research teams working on Transwarp theory and
design. The base retains its traditional roles of command and control center for
border defense and early warning systems and support of starships assigned to
sector 77. In addition, the Federation adds diplomatic and scientific missions
to the station. New modules support a full Federation Ambassador and two
additional ambassadors. The added scientific mission centers on Starfleet’s
Transwarp research program. The transwarp research team believes the properties
of the space around DS-4 are favorable for the formation of transwarp
conduits. Because of this, they choose the station as the location for their
transwarp research. As part of this program, the research team has placed a
circle of probes near the base, which they plan use open small conduits when
conditions are favorable. Rumors abound that the team hopes to someday link the
probes and open a single giant conduit. Star Fleet also expands DS-4’s
Star Ship support mission: Constitution-class and other large Star Ships
can dock externally to the base; Modules added for crew training; and starships
have to spend less time training new crew members. After expansion, the total
population of DS-4 reaches 11,000 with a high proportion of civilians
for this type of base because of its expanded roles in diplomacy and scientific
research. (See http://atrek.org/atrek.html
for more information.)
- Miranda-class USS Clark NCC-1818 assigned as Base defense
and support for DS-4.
- Newly commissioned USS Resolution NCC-1772 launched with Capt
Christopher T. Burke in command. The Resolution’s first mission is to
explore sectors in the Beta Quadrant along the Federation side of Klingon
border. (See http://atrek.org/atrek.html
for more information.)
- Scientist on DS-4 succeeds in opening micro transwarp conduits
for brief periods.

- Resolution completes first half of exploration mission and
returns to DS-4 for crew rotation.
- After detecting and monitoring unusual power signatures of immense power
near DS-4 over the past year, Klingons become suspicious the
Federation is building a new weapon.
- Transwarp research team prepares to open a much larger conduit for a
- A Klingon vessel approaches DS-4 requesting permission under the
Organian treaty agreements to dock only a day before the Transwarp
experiment is to take place.
- Rear Admiral Storn, the sector commander on DS-4, knowing the
Transwarp experiment is time dependent, refuses the Klingons permission to
dock, and puts out a Priority One call for assistance. USS Eagle
responds to call.
- Detecting the Eagle’s approach, the Klingon’s decide to
attack. More Klingon Ships decloak and attack the base. A Klingon disrupter
hit on the science module of DS-4 initiates a chain reaction
activating the transwarp experiment prematurely. Power surges to the
transwarp gateway systems unchecked.
- The Resolution receives the Priority One call and arrives just as
the gateway surges. The power surge disrupts the base shielding and the
station takes a hit to the engineering sections. Scientists work furiously
to contain the power surge but their efforts are cut short as an evacuation
of the base is ordered do to an imminent warp core breach. The gateway
formed by the linked probes appears to open. The Clark and Eagle
move to pick up as many people from the base as they can while the Resolution
continues to engage the remaining Klingon vessels. Life pods, shuttles and
every other auxiliary and small craft docked at DS-4 clutter the
area surrounding the base. Only two Klingon vessels remain. One vessel is
severely damaged and dead in space. The other Klingon vessel backs away. The
Resolution joins the Eagle and Clark in their
attempt to pick up as many people from the station as it can.
- Suddenly, the local space ruptures and phases in and out for a few
moments, and then there is no sign of DS-4, not even among the debris fields
which is made up mostly of the destroyed Klingon vessels and a few of the
smaller evacuation craft.
- An investigation soon follows, but nothing can be determined. Eventually,
the matter is shelved as unsovable. (See http://atrek.org/atrek.html
for more information.)
