The Second Mission 3

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.

Oath of Vengeance
written by Nomad

The Klingons have returned to Serenidad to lay claim to that planet’s vast dilithium wealth. They have captured both Prince Consort Carlos and Princess Teresa and plan to extract their vengeance on the young lovers, unless a certain starship captain can stop them in time. Note: violence, rape, sexual themes.

Mark of the Beast
written by Nomad

The crew of the Enterprise is confronted with a murderous beast which is wandering the corridors in a blood-lust feeding frenzy... Note: Violence.

A Minor Irritation
written by Holly S. Trueblood

On the surface of an abandoned Romulan colony world, Spock succumbs to a strange infestation, and it's up to his friends to help. You can't die from an itch, can you? A hurt-comfort story.

The Human Equation
written by Nomad

An awesome Human (or should we say Vulcan?) interest story as young Lieutenant Xon comes to deal with the Human elements of the Enterprise crew, as well as love, life and death, all parts of the Human equation. Note: Sexual themes.

A Klingon Holiday
written by Randall Landers

What if the Klingons tried to capture Kirk while he was on the shore leave planet? A dark-humored answer. Note: Adult themes.

written by Bonnie Reitz

A Romulan peace envoy, alien ambassadors, a shape-changing being and a powerful entity come aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise, all causing James T. Kirk more than a little consternation.

written by Randall Landers, with Nomad

Three distinct stories all involving Klingons with the crew of the Enterprise, and with an alien abduction of Spock!
