A diplomatic summit of universal proportions sets the stage for another historic note in the annals of the Federation.
A new race known as the Cardassians seeks Federation status. When Ambassador Sarek opposes their petition, his son, Ambassador Spock, publicly denounces Sarek's opinion. Underlying the strained diplomacy is the tension between father and son regarding Sarek's recent marriage.
Chaos soon reigns as a contingent of Legarans attending the summit are mysteriously attacked and Sarek's new bride is kidnapped. Spock must set aside his differences with his father to stop the saboteurs and restore peace.
