Boaco Six—a once-tranquil Federation colony, now caught up in the throes of revolution. The Enterprise‘s mission: re-establish contact with the planet, and determine whether or not formal ties between the Federation and Boaco Six should be strengthened.

Negotiations between Captain Kirk and the planet’s ruling Council of Youngers are proceeding smoothly, until the atmosphere of goodwill is shattered by the sudden destruction of a Boacan ship—at the hands of an experimental Starfleet vessel!

Now, in order to prevent full-scale war from breaking out, the Enterprise must recapture the stolen Starfleet vessel and its abductors. A mission that will require the aid of the galaxy’s most reclusive genius—and bring Captain Kirk face-to-face with the long-buried secrets of his past…

An ugly white beam shot out of the Klingon ship. It blasted into the graceful metal arch that held up the top decks of the Enterprise. The bridge shook. It was a well-aimed shot; Kirk prayed the damage was not severe.

“Shields up!” the captain barked hoarsely. “Drop everything, Mr. Scott. Divert all power if you have to, but get those shields up!”

“Aye, sir.”

“The answer to our question, Captain,” Spock said, as he helped a shaken Flint rise to his feet. “They feel confident enough to risk an all-out war.”

Kirk nodded grimly. “Go to red alert, Mr. Sulu.”
