|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
because it deals mostly with original series characters.
