Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki


In the tradition of "Unification", here is the story that fans of the original Star Trek series and Star Trek: The Next Generation have been clamoring for—Montgomery Scott's return to the Star Trek universe and his encounter with the crew of the USS Enterprise (NCC 1701-D).
Missing in space for seventy-five years, Scotty manages to survive against incredible odds, only to be found by the crew of the starship Enterprise. Though rescued, Scotty soon finds himself lost in a world that he barely recognizes, a world that has passed him by…
But the adventure is not over for Captain Scott who must do the impossible when the new USS Enterprise faces a very old danger in a remote sector of space. This time, Captain Picard and his crew will need more than all of their courage and all of their skills to save the great starship from destruction. This time, they will need a miracle worker.
