The Tears of the Singers

Captain Kirk and the Enterprise join the Klingons to avert disaster in the Taygeta V system—where a time/space warp has swallowed a spaceship without a trace.
Spock suspects a link between the anomaly and the inhabitants of Taygeta, semi-aquatic creatures killed for the jewel-like tears secreted at the moment of death.
But a mutinous Klingon officer threatens the vital mission, as a desperate Kirk and Spock race to save the Taygetians, the Federation—and the entire universe.
