Captain's log, 10th of October, 2246. An outbreak of fungus has destroyed the crops on Tarsus IV, threatening an entire Federation colony with famine. As the largest and fastest starship in the sector, the Enterprise is the only ship that has a chance of delivering vitally-needed supplies to Tarsus IV before this unanticipated disaster achieves catastrophic proportions…

En route to the Tarsus IV colony to deliver urgent food supplies, the USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain Robert April, is stopped in its tracks by Kor. Aboard his first ship command, the Klingon warship IKS Kut'luch, Kor is eager for a fight.
