- STORY SO FAR...
- In the aftermath of Star Trek Into Darkness, the USS Enterprise embarks on a new Five-year mission of exploration. Meanwhile, the remnants of Starfleet's black-ops division Section 31 have been laying the groundwork for a war between the Romulan and Klingon Empires, hoping that the conflict between the two enemies will tip the balance of power in the galaxy in the Federation's favor...
Klingons are constructing a new colony on the planet Khitomer. Khitomer is then attacked by the Romulans.
- Captain's log, stardate 2261.147.
- The Enterprise is docked at Deep Space K-11 as we make final preparations for our journey into uncharted space. When we leave here we'll be on our own. This is one last chance for the crew to make any calls back to Earth- or whichever planet they call home- before we're out of reach of any subspace relays. And one last chance for the Enterprise to pick up new crew.
At Deep Space Station K-11, Sulu finds out that his sister, Yuki, will be joining the crew of the Enterprise. Just as the Enterprise is about to leave, Uhura picks up a distress call from Khitomer. Meanwhile, Section 31 and Romulan Commander L'Nar talk about what will happen once the Klingon Empire is destroyed. Kirk leads a landing party to Khitomer and is caught by Kor. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is facing Klingon ships. It seems that Kor has arrested Kirk and his landing party, and the Federation and the Klingons might end up in a war.
