SummaryEdit

Part IEdit

The USS Enterprise is drawn back to Starbase 11 after receiving an urgent message from Fleet Captain Christopher Pike. On arrival at Starbase 11, they find that Pike is severely crippled with radiation burns, and is unable to move or communicate, and is confined to a wheel chair.

While Captain Kirk and Commodore Mendez attempt to solve the mystery, Commander Spock secretly has Pike transported up to the Enterprise, and orders a course for Talos IV. Kirk and Mendez manage to catch-up to the Enterprise via shuttlecraft, and Spock hands himself over for a court martial. However, the Enterprise is locked on a course for Talos IV.

Part IIEdit

The court martial hearing against Commander Spock begins, with Commodore Mendez, Captain Kirk, and Fleet Captain Pike sitting on the board. As the hearing begins, they receive a visual representation from the Talosians of the events surrounding the USS Enterprise's previous visit to Talos IV in 2254.

After the board is shown all of the events, Commodore Mendez was revealed to be a Talosian illusion, hence the court-martial was meaningless, and was created to convince Captain Kirk of Spock's mission. Realising that Spock has risked his career to bring Pike to a place where he can have the illusion of a full and happy life, Kirk allows Pike to beam down to Talos IV.
