Waiting on Serenidad
written by Rob Morris

The year is 2293. The place: Serenidad, the planet with the single greatest dilithium reserves in the Federation. It has repelled Klingon invaders time and time again, earning its reigning monarch, Princess Teresa de la Vega Morales Ruiz-Mendoza McCoy, the admiration of her planet’s millions of inhabitants. It is to this beautiful planet, settled by Spanish settlers from early in the 22nd century, that Peter Kirk has decided to go. Unfortunately, while there, the events which become Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country transpire, and the troubled nephew of Captain Kirk, the young wife of Doctor Leonard McCoy, her half-Klingon son, and a security officer booted out of the Academy by James T. Kirk himself, find themselves spiraling toward what seems to be an inevitable disaster. Note: Sexual situations.
