  • Stardate Unknown
  • Released December 1987

A class one medical emergency summons the Enterprise to the Federation outpost Tanis. There, a grisly surprise awaits them. Two of the lab’s three researchers are dead, their bodies almost entirely drained of blood. There are no clues. No records of their research. No remnants of their work.

There is only the outpost’s sole survivor, Dr. Jeffrey Adams. A man with a secret that will rock the very foundations of Starfleet . . . and a terrible, all-consuming hunger that will bring death to the crew of the Starship Enterprise.

Stanger gave a muffled cry. The faint outline of his suit, barely visible in the darkness, showed him sprawled across the floor.

“Stanger! Are you all right?” McCoy dropped the open communicator.

“What in the hell is going on down there?” Kirk’s angry voice emanated from the communicator on the floor.

Stanger emitted a small bleat of disgust and pushed himself away and up into a standing position. He was on his feet by the time McCoy recovered the flashlight and shone it on him.

“My God, Stanger—”

Repelled by the energy field, a deep red fluid beaded up and dribbled down the front of Stanger’s suit.
