In a remote area of Federation space, the
Enterprise picks up an urgent destress signal -
from a Klingon vessel! Tracing the S.O.S., the
crew finds the Klingon cruiser Mauler, trapped
in a dimensional storm of unprecedented power.
Yet paradoxically, the ship refuses both the
Enterprise's call and the offers of help.
Determined to discover what the Klingons are doing
in Federation space, Kirk beams aboard their
ship with a security team, just as the storm flares
to its highest intensity. As the bridge crew
watches in horror, Mauler vanishes from the
And James T. Kirk awakens,
one hundred years in the future!
The S.O.S. is an over-used plot device but it works here.
This story involves time travel but not in the usual way.
I won't tell you any more since that would spoil it.
A fairly good story that's worth reading.
