In 2268, Tortuga VI was a haven for space pirates. That year, USS Enterprise officers James T. Kirk, Spock, Leonard McCoy and Montgomery Scott, having been assigned to recover a stolen dilithium shipment, traveled there while disguised as pirates and made contact with pirate captain Black Jack Nova, who hired them as crewmembers of his ship, the Windjammer.
