Lt. Kirk has been given a simple mission, to clear a suspected rebel colony base. But his mission doesn't go well and he needs some unexpected help to survive. Relations between Vulcan and Earth are breaking down, threatening a three-way war. From his demoted position, Kirk must try and pull together his crew and repair a broken Federation.
I wanted to put our hero Kirk in a rougher place with less easily led crewmembers to see how he fared. And I wanted him to have to deal with a younger Spock who had been much more sheltered.
