When a friendly, alien people called the Rey make
contact with the Federation, they are thrilled to learn
the galaxy has a large number of intelligent races. To
bring the myriad cultures to their world, the Rey host a
celebration - inviting space faring peoples to send
representative ships to compete against one another
and The Great Starship Race is born.
As the Federation's flagship, the
U.S.S. Enterprise under the command of Captain
James T. Kirk, is sent to compete. But the event takes
a dark turn when a Romulan warship arrives and
demands to join the race. Soon, Kirk and the Romulan
commander are engaged in a deadly game of cat and
mouse, and, for Kirk and his crew, the race becomes a
struggle for survival. Faced with treachery at every
turn, Kirk must protect his ship from relentless attack
and prevent the annihilation of an entire world.
What a wonderful story idea!
As mostly Earth-bound humans, we race almost anything that moves,
so it makes sense that people of the future would take
it a step further and race space ships!
I don't know why someone didn't write this story a long time ago!
It's a great story with plenty of twists and turns.
You just know those rotten Romulans are going to cheat!
Check it out!
