Close encounters!

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.

Log entries[edit | edit source]

Captain's log, stardate 7909.8 
After five years, our mission of exploration aboard the refitted starship Enterprise is finally coming to an end, and we will soon begin the long voyage home to Earth.
At the moment, however, a reception is underway on the recreation deck to celebrate a very special occasion...
Security Chief Pavel Chekov has been promoted to the rank of lieutenant commander, and will be leaving the fold to join the crew of the USS Reliant...
... Where he will serve as first officer.
Captain's log, stardate 7910.1 
We have received a distress signal from the USS Yorktown, in the Lycos system. The Enterprise is the closest starship to that sector of space...
... So we have altered course and increased speed to get there as quickly as possible.
Captain's log, supplemental 
I have led a landing party over to the Yorktown, where we are now beaming her survivors over to the Enterprise for medical attention.
On the bridge of the crippled vessel, I hope to find some answers...
