For nearly a hundred years, the planet Chrellkan IV has
enjoyed a peaceful relationship with the colony on the
third planet of its star system. However, relations
between the two worlds take a deadly turn as rebel
colonists take over Chrellkan III and turn against
their mother world
To prevent the conflict from escalating into full-scale
war, Starfleet orders Captain Kirk and the Enterprise to
moderate the dispute. On arrival, Kirk sends Spock and
McCoy to investigate the rebel's claims. But seconds
after beaming down, the two officers are taken hostage
and then - according to sensors - killed. Devastated by
his loss, Kirk must try to learn the truth behind the
mysterious rebellion that has claimed the lives
of his two closest friends.
Kirk's investigation leads him to uncover a dangerous
plot against the Federation - a plot driven by revenge
that may make the Federation's highest law, the Prime
Directive, an instrument of violence and destruction.
Why is Kirk moderating a dispute between non-Federation planets?
I thought Starfleet wasn't the "Intergalactic Police."
And beaming Spock and McCoy down to check out the rebels?
Give me a break. Kirk would have done it himself!
A weak storyline with another old enemy looking for revenge.
New ideas? Anyone?
