Overview

The Enterprise's maiden voyage is interrupted by a distress call from two El-Aurian refugee transports caught in a mysterious energy ribbon. Despite the Enterprise being sorely under-equipped and undermanned, Harriman orders the ship to intercept the transports. The Enterprise arrives too late to save one of the transports, but on Kirk's advice, Harriman moves in close enough to use the transporters to rescue forty-seven El-Aurian refugees from the second ship. However, the Enterprise itself becomes caught in the ribbon. When Scotty determines that a specially-configured burst from the main deflector can disrupt the ribbon long enough for the ship to escape, Harriman volunteers to go below decks to make the modifications. However, Kirk reminds him that his "place is on the bridge of [his] ship" and makes the modifications himself. Although Kirk is successful and the Enterprise escapes, an energy tendril lops off a portion of the stardrive section, including the area where Kirk is. Kirk is lost in the incident and presumed dead (Star Trek: Generations).
