Tales from the Second Five-Year Mission


Kirk is allowed to take the newly refitted Enterprise on a shakedown cruise following the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, before resuming his post as Chief of Starfleet Operations. Klingon forces attempt to take the ship as a prize but Kirk's ingenuity saves the ship and Starfleet reconsiders, giving him command of the Enterprise again.

Background informationEdit

According to writer Glenn Greenberg, his original plot for this issue was quite different from the final story and Paramount's approval department did not like it until a suggestion from editor Tim Tuohy changed the direction of things. [1]
