in his five-year mission commanding the U.S.S.
Captain James T. Kirk found himself caught up in a growing conflict
on the planet Neural. To maintain the balance of power against a
force being armed by the Klingons, he provided weapons to his new
friends, the Hill People. Years later, Admiral Kirk learns that the
Klingon presence on Neural has grown considerably, and in possible
violation of the Treaty of Organia. Did his impulse as a young
captain turn out disastrously wrong? Could he have done more to
eliminate the Klingon threat? To find out, Kirk must embark on a
secret mission back to Neural—where he might just be the only
person who can prevent an interstellar war. . .
