"In the Presence of My Enemies" is a role-playing module/adventure for FASA's Star Trek: The Role-Playing Game. It was the last of three introductory adventures (along with "Ghosts of Conscience" and "Again, Troublesome Tribbles") published in Adventure Book, a 48-page manual included with the 1983 first edition of the game box set.

Publisher's description[edit | edit source]

This adventure is intended for use with a small group of Federation Starfleet characters who fall into the hands of the Klingon Empire...

Summary[edit | edit source]

In 2270, Federation Ambassador Carlos Rivera was sent to the Lorealyn system aboard the courier USS Magnan with several of his staff in order to cement an alliance with the natives of the system. Lorealyn crystals were more dense than dilithium and had the potential for advancing warp drive technology. A two-day-long conference was scheduled.

However, the system was located within the Organian Treaty Zone, and the Klingon Empire sweetened the pot for a Klingon alliance by offering the natives control of two Klingon agricultural planets in a neighboring system, as well as warp technology and construction assistance with their interplanetary spacecraft. Rivera was to offer even more than that in order to sway the natives to join the Federation.

When the Magnan approached the system, it was ambushed by a Klingon battlecruiser. Due to the potential threat of Organian observation, the Klingons captured the vessel, rather than destroy it, and locked her crew in detention cells. The D7 was sighted by Lorealyn spacecraft, however, so the Klingon commander claimed to be part of the Klingon Diplomatic Corps. To maintain that pretense, he had to keep the Klingon ship in orbit around Lorealyn III for the duration of the conference.

It was up to the players to escape and deliver Rivera safely to the conference.
