When an entire solar system begins to disintegrate into cosmic rubble,
Captain Kirk suspects that rumors of a new Klingon super weapon are all
too true. The Tautee system houses a flourishing pre-warp civilization
not quite ready to join the Federation, so the Prime Directive limits
Kirk's ability to undo the disaster, and his humanitarian rescue
operations provoke a hostile response from four Klingon warships.
What is destroying the Tautee system? The U.S.S. Enterprise must
uncover the truth before the catastrophe extends beyond Tautee to
threaten the very nature of reality itself.
Although you find out what's destroying the Tautee
system in the first chapter, the story is an interesting one.
A decent effort by this writing duo.
