| Located far beyond the boundaries of explored
space, the Goeg Domain is a political union of dozens of planets and races.
When the U.S.S. Enterprise arrives in its territory to investigate an interstellar
phenomenon, Commander Laspas of the Domain Defense Corps is at first guarded,
then fascinated to discover the existence of an alliance of worlds much like
his own, and finds a kindred spirit in Captain James T. Kirk. And when
the Enterprise is attacked by the Domain's enemies, crippling the starship's
warp capability and leaving its crew facing the prospect of a slow, months-long
journey home, the Goeg leader volunteers the help of his own ship, offering
to combine the resources of both vessels to bring the Enterprise to a nearby
Domain facility to make the necessary repairs.
But what at first seems to be an act of peace and friendship soon turns out
to be a devil's bargain, as Kirk and the Enterprise crew learn that there
are perhaps more differences than similarities between the Federation and
the Domain. When the Goeg's adversaries strike again, the Enterprise
is drawn deeper and inexorably into the conflict, and Kirk begins to realize
that they may have allied themselves with the wrong side . . .
