  • Released June 1988

In a remote area of Federation space, the Enterprise picks up an urgent distress signal—from a Klingon vessel! Tracing the SOS, the crew finds the Klingon cruiser Mauler, trapped in a dimensional storm of unprecedented power. Yet paradoxically, the ship refuses both the Enterprise‘s call and the offers of help.

Determined to discover what the Klingons are doing in Federation space, Kirk beams aboard their ship with a security team, just as the storm flares to its highest intensity. As the bridge crew watches in horror, Mauler vanishes from the Enterprise‘s viewscreen.

And James T. Kirk awakens… one hundred years in the future.

“You must not count on ever going home again…”

Kirk gripped his cup tightly and waited.

“You see, Captain—may I call you Jim?” Morith asked.

Kirk nodded impatiently.

“Jim. You see, Jim, that storm that Mauler encountered was apparently more than just some curious magnetic-ionic disturbance. It was a temporal phenomenon as well,” Morith said. His voice, his face, the very stance of his body proclaimed how nervous he was. “Mauler was almost destroyed by the storm, but instead, the ship and all aboard her, including you and your Security team… well, you were all flung forward one hundred years into the future. That’s where you are now.”
