(Steven H. Wilson; Rob Davis, Arne Starr;)

46	May 93	Coup d'etat, Deceptions 1
On a diplomatic mission to Mardelva, Spock, Saavik, and a
Federation ambassador crash land their shuttle on a remote

Enterprise returns to look for the missing shuttle.
(Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr;)

47	May 93	Deceptions, 2

49	Jun 93	The peacekeeper, 1
In spite of Kirk's reservations, the Enterprise is selected to
take part in a protomatter weapon test. En route to the test
site, a humanoid carrying a black cat materializes aboard
Pacific, which is carrying the experimental weapon. While the
cat stands watch, her companion tampers with an auxiliary
control panel, then both dematerialize. After witnessing a
successful lab demonstration, Enterprise and Pacific move
into position for the field test. Two more intruders
materialize on Pacific, one humanoid, the other, an alien.
They also tamper with auxiliary controls and kill two security
guards before leaving. When the protomatter weapon is fired at
an asteroid, the Pacific disappears in a burst of radiation,
with Scotty, Chekov, and the weapon's designers aboard.
(Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Romeo Tanghal; Whigham, Carlos

50	Jul 93	The peacekeeper, 2
Spock can't account for the disappearance of Pacific. Kirk is
furious over the loss of Scotty and Chekov and wants to shut down
the Peacemaker project. Spock concludes that the Pacific must
have been transported, though no such transport technology is
known. 30,000 light years away, a human, a Klingon, and two
aliens are in command of Pacific. After recovering from a bad
transport, Scotty and Chekov are forced to make repairs. Back
on the Enterprise, Gary Seven and Isis ("Assignment: Earth")
materialize. Seven, now a senior supervisor, explains his
mission to Kirk while Isis flirts with Spock. The Pacific's
hijackers are rebel supervisors who plan to use the
protomatter weapon against the aliens who trained them as
intervention specialists. The aliens, called the Aegis, did
away with weapons long ago and will be defenseless against the
protomatter weapon. To convince Kirk that the Enterprise must
help him, Seven takes him, along with Spock and McCoy to an Aegis
facility where thousands of years back and forth in time are
monitored. Kirk is apprehensive about the Aegis policy of
intervention but he is reminded of his own questionable
actions regarding the Prime Directive and agrees to
cooperate. Meanwhile, Scotty believes he can link the
Pacific's transporters with the time-space transporter used
by the rebel supervisors. Seven transports the Enterprise
into the vicinity of Pacific. The rebels demand surrender of
the Enterprise. Kirk refuses and demands the return of Pacific
and its crew. A battle ensues. The rebels fire the protomatter
weapon at Enterprise. Kirk evades the first salvo just as
Scotty triggers his jury-rigged transporter. The Pacific's
crew and the rebels enter the time-space transport stream and
Enterprise destroys Pacific. With Gary Seven's help, the
Enterprise locks onto the transport stream and reels everyone
in. Seven takes custody of the rebels and the Enterprise goes on
its way. Double-sized issue.
(Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr, Carlos Garzon; Jason

51	Aug 93	Renegade
Saavik tracks down and captures a Federation scientist,
Professor Erickson, on a Romulan outpost world. Erickson
developed a major breakthrough in starship weapons
technology and decided to take it to the Romulans to restore the
balance of power. Traveling in a captured Romulan vessel,
Saavik questions Erickson about his motives while he tries to
persuade her to join him. Attacked by a pursuing Romulan ship,
Saavik refuses to surrender and fights until the Romulans
retreat. Erickson continues to try and persuade Saavik that
his is the right way. When they detect an unexpected Federation
ship, Saavik realizes that Erickson has programmed a phony
vessel configuration signal and the ship is really Romulan.
When Erickson fails to win over Saavik, the Romulans activate a
neural surger which kills him. The Romulan commander commends
Saavik, telling her she would have made a fine Romulan, leaving
Saavik to ponder the situation.

Whighan, Carlos Garzon)

52	Sep 93	Epic proportion
Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are invited to make first contact.
Puzzled by the invitation, but curious, they meet with the
Atyansa and are welcomed as mythic heroes. The trio, along with
an Atyansa guide must go on a quest to find the creature of the
mountain, as legend says they did a thousand years before.
Scotty, in command of the Enterprise, must try and keep a
Klingon battle cruiser from interfering with the first
contact mission. During the quest, Kirk and the others meet and
battle beings and beasts from their past, including a Mugatu, a
Gorn, and a salt creature. When Klingons arrive, our heroes are
chased into a mountain cave where they find a massive and
sophisticated computer installation. The computer, built by
the Atyansa's ancestors half a million years ago, appears as a
beautiful woman, and welcomes the Federation officers. Their
arrival was predicted long ago and made part of Atyansa
mythology to facilitate their arrival. The computer
installation is failing and the Federation is asked to help
restore the system for use by the present day Atyansa. Klingons
briefly interrupt, annoying the computer. She chases them
back to their ship, then pushes it out of orbit. The Enterprise
crew celebrates their new association with the Atyansa.
(Diane Duane; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr; Whigham, Carlos Garzon)

53	Oct 93	Time crime, 1
The Enterprise is investigating a temporal disturbance when a
Romulan warship appears. The Romulan commander, Admiral
Jaricus, recognizes Enterprise, but the Romulan Empire was
destroyed fifty years earlier after a sneak attack on the
Federation and the Klingon Confederation. The Romulans
insist that theirs is the true reality. Enterprise Science
Officer Lt. Worf (ST VI: TUC) has no answers and recommends an
investigation. The Federation agrees and invites the
Romulans to Earth with diplomatic status. At Starfleet
Academy, Spock is asked to assist with the investigation. He
recommends visiting the Guardian of Forever ("The City on the
Edge of Forever") to learn whether or not time has been altered.
(Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr; Whigham, Carlos Garzon)

54	Nov 93	Nightmares, 2
On the planet of the Guardian of Forever, Kirk has nightmares
about a Klingon killing his son. Spock and David determine that
the flow of time has been altered in the Klingons' past. They
record the original progression of events and the altered
timeline to study. Spock informs Kirk that in the timeline they
wish to reestablish, David has been murdered by Klingons. Kirk
considers stranding David on the planet, where he will be
insulated from changes in time. Lt. Worf is troubled by the
changes that will come. Klingons are devoted to the arts and
sciences, not the art of war. Ambassador Kor ("Errand of
Mercy") examines the time records with Spock. They learn that
the assassination of a pivotal figure in Klingon history never
took place. Kirk volunteers to lead the team which will try to
restore the original timeline. Going with him are Kor, Admiral
Jaricus, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura, and Lt. Worf.
(Howard Weinstein; Rod Whigham, Arne Starr; Whigham, Carlos Garzon)

55	Dec 93	Time to time, 3
Kirk says goodbye to his son, who will be dead in the restored
timeline. The Romulans have no choice but to accept the
Federation's offer to observe only, but they are wary. While
Spock monitors the Guardian of Forever, Kirk and his team arrive
in the Klingon homeworld's past to begin searching for Khartan
and the palace guards planning to murder him. Kirk picks a fight
with a guard and is arrested. He meets Khartan and is impressed
by his intellect and spirituality, making his mission even more
difficult. The Federation team finds the leader of the
assasination plot but he and his henchmen are killed by a modern
Klingon explosive device. Having failed to carry out their
mission to ensure Khartan's death, Worf regretfully takes it
upon himself to set matters straight, killing Khartan with a
phaser blast. Upon returning to their own time, Kirk's team
learns that time still has not been set right.
(Howard Weinstein; Rob Davis, Arne Starr; Rod Whigham, Carlos

56	Jan 94	Call back yesterday, 4
Their mission to correct the timeline a failure, Spock concludes
that more than one event in time has been tampered with. Further
study indicates that the assassination of the brutal Klingon
leader Baraga should never have occurred. Kor stays behind to
continue studying the Guardian of Forever's records. The Romulan
commander considers the Guardian's potential as a weapon while
Kirk, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu and Worf go back in time once more.
Kirk and Sulu get jobs as airplane mechanics to be near the site
of Baraga's murder. Klingons from the future identify Kirk and
his team and begin revising their plans. Baraga learns of the
two new and very skilled mechanics, and makes them his own. Kirk
and Sulu capture a Klingon trying to sabotage Baraga's plane,
but are themselves thrown in jail for their trouble.
(Howard Weinstein; Rob Davis, Arne Starr; Rod Whigham, Carlos

57	Feb 94	Seems like old times, 5
Kirk and Sulu are brought before Baraga to tell their story.
Baraga kills the would-be sabateur and goes ahead with plans to
use his plane in an air show. The renegade Klingons from the
future worry that their plan has failed until Baraga's plane
explodes during the air show. They capture Kirk and his team,
with plans to dispose of them. Kirk learns that the renagades,
along with like-minded Romulans, attempted to alter history so
that the Federation and the Klingon Empire would both be
weak, peace-loving societies, and ripe for conquest. At the
Guardian of Forever, Spock confirms that the timeline has been
restored, but since Kirk has not returned, he refuses to allow
the Romulans to leave. After further consideration, he arrests
the Romulans on suspicion of conspiracy to alter time.
Ambassador Kor convinces the Klingon Imperial High Command that
the situation still requires action.  When the renegade Klingons

bird-of-prey with the Federation team, vowing another attempt to
change history. Before they can kill Kirk, a battlecruiser hails
them and orders their surrender. After a brief battle, the
renegades are captured and Kirk's team boards the battlecruiser
which slingshots around the Klingon sun to the present. Lt. Worf

past. Kirk believes that past is best left where it is. Years
before, shortly before the end of its first five-year mission,
the Enterprise arrives at Veneu II on an archeological study. The
landing party finds a huge structure still showing power
readings. Spock determines that the equipment they find is a
transporter device designed for travel through time as well as
space. The structure is attacked and Kirk is trapped inside while
the others return to the Enterprise. Spock must negotiate with
the Wumpar, who insist that the Enterprise leave. Meanwhile, Kirk
has been transported to another planet. Finding himself alone, he

captain. Kirk grows old, with a beast his only companion. When he
dies, he leaves behind his logs and a sign of his passing. The
Draselle find the Wumpar and the Enterprise, but are turned away
after a brief battle. The Wumpar, with renewed hope, continue to

The Enterprise is diverted to pick up Vulcan ambassador Sidak
and his assistant, T'Rin. They decline to brief Kirk on their
mission and order him to depart. En route to their secret
destination, the Enterprise must respond to several distress
calls, delaying arrival. Sidak is apparently unconcerned. Kirk
insists on a briefing and learns that the ambassador is engaged
in delicate negotiations with a world of interest to the
Romulans. Their late arrival would give the Romulans a foothold
in vital territory. Kirk suspects that their mission has been
sabotaged. Upon arrival, T'Rin reveals that she is Starfleet
security and arrests Sidak for espionage. She tells Kirk that
the negotiations were concluded months before and the mission
was a ruse to force Sidak's hand. After the arrest, the
Enterprise receives a call from Nara'Gi officials, asking for help
intercepting a stolen courier vessel. When the ship is brought
aboard the Enterprise, Kirk and Spock meet the thieves, an alien
and T'Ariis, daughter of T'Pring and Anbassador Stonn.

Kirk, Spock, and McCoy accompany her home, where they meet Stonn
and his second wife, Sepora. Stonn is gravely ill but refuses
help. T'Ariis and Dalen are arrested for stealing the government
courier and Stonn makes no effort to intervene, insisting that
the treaty with the Nara'Gi is more important. At Sepora's

is to be tortured.  Kirk's interference causes Nara'Gi officials
to declare the treaty invalidated.

wanting". Stonn dies and Kirk is ordered to reestablish a
treaty with the Nara'Gi at any cost. T'Ariis and Dalen arrive
on 'Gi where outsiders are reviled. T'Ariss must flee
xenophobic gangs and is only saved from injury by Spock, who
