While testing a new shielding device, the
U.S.S. Enterprise is caught in the middle of a
Klingon / Romulan battle. When the Enterprise crew rescues
a lifepod, they are confronted by a Klingon who claims to
know nothing of human existence. Convinced the Klingon is
telling the truth, Captain Kirk hurries to Starfleet
Headquarters in search of answers. But upon arriving on
Earth, the Starship Enterprise crew finds that Earth is a
vast jungle-like paradise where large, reptilian animals
rule . . . with no signs of human life anywhere. Now Kirk must
travel to the past in search of the key to the mystery - or
face the destruction of the human race.

A testament to the expert writing I would say.
