Star Trek TOS The Abode of Life
First Timescape Printing
Star Trek The Original Series
The Enterprise is caught between its own survival and the destruction of an innocent, isolated world
While on a routine mapping mission the Enterprise is caught up in a spatial anomoly and thrown far into uncharted territory. Their warp engines are badly damaged and without them it will take them over a hundred years to get back to Federation territory (shades of Voyager!). As Kirk turns his damaged ship towards home they also look for any signs of inhabited systems but the area in is an empty void expect for one, lone solar system.
Things begin to look up when they detect signs of transportor activity coming from the single planet and Kirk, and Scotty take a small landing party down to look for materials needed for repairs. What they discover is a society that has no idea that other life can possibly exist anywhere other than on their world. Their moonless world is so isolated that other stars appear as only a faint blur in the night sky. The realization that the Enterprise landing party did not come from their planet throws the society into turmoil and puts Kirk in the position of once again repairing damage caused by violating the Prime Directive
