|DEPARTMENT OF TEMPORAL INVESTIGATIONS
By: Christopher L. Bennett
| The agents of the Department of Temporal
Investigations are assigned to look into an anomaly that has appeared
deep in Federation territory. It's difficult to get clear
readings, but a mysterious inactive vessel lies at the heart of the
anomaly, one outfitted with some sort of temporal drive disrupting
space-time and subspace. To the agents' shock, the ship bears a
striking resemblance to a Constitution-class starship, and its warp
signature matches that of the original Federation starship Enterprise
NCC-1701 - the ship of James T. Kirk, that infamous bogeyman of
temporal investigators, whose record of violations is held up by DTI
agents as a cautionary tale for Starfleet recklessness toward history.
But the vessel's hull markings identify it as Timeship Two, belonging
to none other than the DTI itself. At first, Agents Lucsly and
Dulmur assume the ship is from some other timeline . . . but its
quantum signature confirms that it came from their own past, despite
the fact that the DTI never possessed such a timeship.
While the anomaly is closely monitored, Lucsly and Dulmur must search
for answers in the history of Kirk's Enterprise and its many encounters
with time travel - a series of events with direct ties to the origins
of the DTI itself . . .
Technically, this isn't an original series novel but I'm including it
it deals mostly with original series characters.
