In the year 2292, while conducting a scientific survey of "black smoker" vents in an interstellar asteroid field, a shuttlecraft from the USS Feynman crashed onto the surface of one of the floating bodies. Sending out a distress call, the ship was attacked by a hostile alien lifeform there; the starship USS Enterprise-A responded to the signal, and rescued Captain James T. Kirk's nephew Peter from the wreckage. (TOS comic: "Bloodline")
