"An uneasy alliance has been forged between Captain Kirk and Colonel Taylor! But will it be enough to prevent Commander Kor and his Klingons from toppling the regime of Doctor Zaius?"


Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise have pursued Klingon warships through an interdimensional portal finding themselves on a parallel Earth where mankind has become an inferior species and apes rule the planet! Searching for Klingon interference, they've encountered Colonel George Taylor, a timelost astronaut from 20th-century Earth who's hell-bent for vengeance for what's become of Humanity. Kirk and Taylor have come to an uneasy truce, and Taylor has agreed to help stop the Klingons from setting off a civil war among the Apes. And just in the nick of time, as General Marius and his Klingon-armed forces march on Ape City...

Log entries Edit

Captain's log, supplemental 
Following his somewhat unexpected viist to the ship, we've given Colonel George Taylor a need-to-know briefing about the basics of why the Enterprise is here. He understands now the Klingons are and why their presence in this universe is such a threat.
Colonel Taylor however, remains more concerned about the apes on the planet below than the Klingons.
