Prologue

Former commander of the USS Enterprise, Captain James T. Kirk threw his bags on his bed and looked around the familiar room. He picked up the copy of his orders, and glanced at it again. “I hate mysteries,” he said. Kirk flung the orders onto his desk.

“Computer, record personal log entry,” he said, pacing the room.

“Recording.”

“Five months ago, the Enterprise completed her last assignment and was ordered to return to Earth for refit and reassignment. After five years in space, many of the crew, myself included, were looking forward to accumulated leave time, plus the extra six months Starfleet Command had promised them.

“Two weeks ago, Admiral Nogura finally convinced me to accept promotion to Admiral. Not that he gave me much choice, other than to resign or accept the promotion and assignment in Admiral Ciana’s office. A promotion and assignment that won’t be effective for another month.

“At our meeting he made it quite clear I would not be getting command of the Enterprise when her refit was completed. Now, I find myself back on the Enterprise, the crew recalled, and the only orders I have are to report to Admiral Cartwright’s office at eight hundred tomorrow morning. Something’s not adding up here, and I don’t like it. End log.”

“Recorded.”

Kirk grinned as he looked around his quarters again. “Oh well,” he said. “It can’t be too bad; I’m back on the Enterprise.”
