Having had a couple of introductory adventures, the Pike Enterprise crew now move into more familiar territory. Linking up with an event described in the first Star Trek pilot, "The Cage", the crew are on a happy diplomatic mission to Rigel 7. They are to oversee the planet's admission into the Federation.

Only one thing remains for the planet to do before they can "fly the flag", though. They must see to it that their genetically bred warrior caste, the Kaylar, are disbanded and reintegrated into the rest of Rigellian society. The task has been on the Rigellian government's plate for some time, so Pike thinks that his examination of this treaty stipulation will be a matter of course.

Unfortunately he discovers, too late to save one of the Enterprise crew, that neither Rigel, nor the Kaylar, are quite ready for a brave, new future with the Federation.
