Verdict. (The Trial of James T. Kirk, Part 3 of 3)
During Kirk's hearing, the Salla of Nasgul continues to scheme. The Klingon Emperor, Commander Maltz, and Blaise all testify during the hearing. Blaise and Kirk get into an argument, and Kirk realizes that Salla has vanished. Scotty spots an impending explosion and this allows Kirk to save the Emperor's life. All of the charges against Kirk are duly dropped, and the Enterprise is allow to return to active duty, but the Klingons still have a spy placed high in the ranks of Starfleet.
