Summary[edit | edit source]
The Enterprise's second five-year mission comes to an end. On their way home, the Enterprise answers a distress call from the Yorktown, now a Starfleet Academy training vessel, which has been attacked by a huge alien vessel. Kirk, Spock, and McCoy are abducted by the alien lifeforms, little grey creatures with large eyes. The abductors are telepathic, communicating with Spock, who learns their startling history and current mission. Kirk averts a disaster and reevaluates his own role in Starfleet as a result of the close encounter.
