Retired and happily in love, James T. Kirk believes his adventuring days are over. But as he returns to Earth for the first time since his apparent "death" upon the Starship Enterprise NCC-1701-B, events elsewhere in the galaxy set in motion a mystery that may provide Kirk with his greatest challenge yet.
The U.S.S.

The commander of Starship 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 Federation?
