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.

The Last Survivor
written by Nomad

In this sequel to the episode "A Private Little War," the Enterprise returns to the planet Neural only to discover how the situation there has worsened. This is a gruesome but probable conclusion to the events set forth in the episode. Note: Graphic violence.

The Wages of Vengeance
written by Nomad

The peaceful planet of Serenidad is at the cusp of a major decision: whether or not to join the United Federation of Planets. Just as the treaty is to be signed, however, Captain James T. Kirk apparently leaps to the ceremonial platform and executes Don Fernando, El Caudillo of Serenidad, in a cold-blooded assassination. Note: Adult themes, violence.

A Serpent in Eden

This story is quite a change of pace. While the Enterprise is conducting a cultural study of a recently discovered alien world, Lieutenant Pavel Chekov finds himself on the planet’s surface investigating a murder!

Until Judgment

Out of the Ashes
