and happily in love, Kirk believes his adventuring days are over.
But as he returns to Earth for the first time since his apparent
"death" upon the Enterprise-B, events elsewhere in the galaxy set in
motion a mystery that may provide Kirk with his greatest challenge yet.
The Enterprise-E, under the command of Captain Jean-Luc Picard, is
exploring an unstable region of space on a scientific mission of vital
concern to Starfleet when they discover the last thing they ever
expected to find: a lonely, battle-scarred vessel that is instantly
recognizable to every member of Picard's crew. Five years after
being lost with all hand in the Delta Quadrant, the starship Voyager
has come home!
The commander of the Voyager, one Tom Paris, explains that Captain
Kathryn Janeway and half of the original crew is dead, but if that is
true, who is the mysterious woman who has kidnapped Kirk back on Earth,
pleading with him to assist her against a threat to the entire
All is not as it seems, and soon Kirk is forced to confront the hideous
consequences of actions taken more than a hundred years prior, as well
as his own inner doubts. After years of quiet and isolation, does
he still have what it takes to put things right - and join with Captain
Picard to save the lives of everyone aboard a brand new Enterprise?
straying from true original series stuff,

I don't want to give away too much, but have another look

Where else have you seen Spock with a beard . . .
This is a great story!
