He was an Iowa farm boy and a war hero, promoted to the command of the Federation’s most powerful starship. His first mission: to shuttle a troop of vaudevillians to a distant starbase. But a comedy of errors turns to deadly drama when a renegade Klingon tries to provoke a war with the Federation, and a wondrous, peaceful world is caught in between. Suddenly Captain Kirk is playing a part he never learned in school: fighting for the respect – and the survival – of his crew, on a mission that could turn out to be his last.
