- While Spock is left behind at the terraforming colony to continue his scientific studies, the rest of the crew heads to Alpha Maluria VI to find the dispute has turned to war.
- As Kirk, McCoy, and Scotty search for a solution to end the conflict, a ship piloted by a Klingon faction arrives at the terraforming colony to take control of the facility. When colonists are imprisoned, Spock and David must defeat the Klingons or face certain death…
