James T. Kirk is the youngest man to be promoted to the rank of captain in Federation history. He was an Iowa farm boy and a war hero, promoted to the command of the Federation's most powerful starship.

His crew consists of a first officer who finds him impetuous; a chief engineer who finds him arrogant; a chief medical officer who finds him trifling; and a helmsman who wants a transfer. His first mission: to shuttle a troop of vaudevillians to a distant starbase.

But a comedy of errors turns to deadly drama when a renegade Klingon tries to provoke a war with the Federation, and a wondrous, peaceful world is caught in between. Suddenly Captain Kirk is playing a part he never learned in school: fighting for the respect - and the survival - of his crew, on a mission that could turn out to be his last. And the young crew, which would later become the legendary space explorers, quickly puts aside their differences when the monstrous starship appears on their nascent flight path.

Jugglers, flying horses, and the threat of war - here is the untold story of James T. Kirk's first mission as the commander of the Enterprise!
