Massive computer malfunctions are plaguing the Enterprise when Kirk suddenly receives a shocking message from Starfleet Command: Centaurus has been bombed and annihilated; thousands are dead. Give whatever help you can. Centaurus is a beautiful, peaceful planet, home to many humans–including McCoy’s daughter Joanna.

The crew risks beaming down to investigate. But Kirk is thrown into a deadly struggle between violent enemy terrorists and vengeful Centaurians. Now Lt. Uhura, left alone in command, must jeopardize the crippled Enterprise to save Centaurus, Kirk–and Joanna McCoy!

“Mr. Chekov, please take us down close to the ground,” Spock said. As Chekov pitched the joystick forward and eased back on the power, he asked, “Vhat are ve looking for, Mr. Spock?”

“Some indication of the location of the Centaurus Medical Complex,” the Vulcan answered. “Dr. McCoy’s daughter was a medical student there. I would like to be able to tell the doctor something of her fate.”

At last, they noticed the stumps of what had been several Gothic-style buildings. Slowly, they coasted over the ruins of the Medical Complex. Here and there, dead littered the landscape.

Chekov’s teeth were clenched. “Someone must answer for this . . . this . . . ” He sought an adequate word, but could not find one.

They hovered over what had been the central square of the medical school campus. No one came out from hiding in response to the racket of their engines.

Finally, Chekov took them up and away.
