Each thirty-three years, a rift in house connects the Federation with a mysterious race referred to as the Calligar who live to tell the tale a planet thousands of sunshine years away -- a lot too some distance to shuttle in a Starship. Captain Kirk and the U.S.S. company™ are dispatched to move a Federation delegation of diplomats, students and scientists who will shuttle to Calligar without delay throughout the short time period that the rift should be open. Mr. Spock leads the Federation celebration as they commute through travel during the rift simply as a bunch of the extraterrestrial beings arrive in Federation house. The conferences pass easily until eventually the Calligar take Spock's occasion hostage and Kirk discovers that the extraterrestrial beings are protecting a dangerous mystery. With indignant Tellarite and Andorain fleets able to assault the Calligar, Kirk needs to store Spock and the others sooner than struggle breaks out and the rift closes for one more fifty years.
