Description[edit | edit source]

USS Enterprise crewmembers meet Hal Jordan and the entire Green Lantern Corps in an adventure that spans space, time and all the colors of the spectrum. Set in Star Trek's 23rd century, the balance of the universe will be tested when the Green Lantern Corps' power rings come into the possession of certain Star Trek characters while a dark and powerful evil looms around every corner. Only the combined power of the Green Lantern Corps and the Federation stand any chance of stopping those who worship evil's might.
