Beginning with Star Trek: The Motion Picture (a.k.a. Star Trek: In Thy Image), these stories detail the adventures of the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise on its second mission under the command of Captain James T. Kirk until the terrible events of The Serenidad Tragedy three years later.
Upon Golden Tears
written by Pamela J. Corsa
No Margin for Error
A beautiful and sad story of an encounter between the crew of the Enterprise and a hitherto unknown alien race. Not all such encounters are peaceful. Many are tragic. Some are both. An excellent story!
Hover-boards and Photons
A stream-of-consciousness piece involving Kirk in a command decision situation. A solid look at the thoughts of Starfleets renowned starship captain.
To Hellguard and Back
Orion pirates attack the Enterprise, and only Lieutenant Kelsey can figure out a way to save the ship once their targeting sensors are fried!
The Sound of Death
This wonderful Saavik origin story does a terrific job in capturing the youths personality in a believable way.
Shades of Gray
A tragic mission is bound to prompt some changes in the automated first contact procedures the Federation employs.
Serving as a secret agent, Chapel investigates a Romulan plot on a backwater colony world. The problem is that shes suffering from amnesia, and its up to Sulu to go in and get her out of there.
To Weather a Storm
Ambassador Sarek is caught up in a Klingon-supported revolution on a Federation world. The Enterprise is sent to rescue him and his staff, but the landing party is marooned as the Enterprise becomes involved with a wolf-pack of Klingon ships. Spock performs a mind-meld, and to his horror, Sarek appears to be insane leaving Spock with a clear duty: tal shaya.
Just Another Routine Assignment
While on an emergency trip to a starbase for repairs, Spock is beamed off the bridge by aliens who want him for his computer expertise. It is one of the weaker stories, and as one of our consultants pointed out, rather pointless, but I chose to include it here as a matter of personal preference.
Only the Sound Remains
While Kirk is doing a cultural survey on Stradith, Klingons invade the peaceful planet.
Spock is offered to choose between an existence any Vulcan would dream of with a woman any Human would die for, and his friend, Jim Kirk.
