Outline

Starfleet Counsellor Aspen travels with the Enterprise to a far-flung colony under attack from space pirates in the rogue ship Serene Squall. Pike and a boarding party beam over to the ship, only for its crew to board Enterprise at the same time. Pike uses his culinary skills and some manipulative tactics to encourage a mutiny on the Serene Squall, allowing him and his boarding party to gain control of the ship. Meanwhile, Aspen reveals himself to actually be Angel, the Serene Squall’s captain. They contact T’Pring and give her an ultimatum: release Angel’s lover, a Vulcan prisoner that T’Pring is attempting to rehabilitate, or Spock dies. T’Pring chooses to hand the prisoner over, but Spock pretends to break their engagement by claiming to have an affair with Chapel. Angel tries to fire on T’Pring’s ship, but the Serene Squall boarding party use remote access codes to lock Enterprise’s controls. Angel flees and the pirates surrender. Spock reassures T’Pring of his love for her and tells Chapel that their friendship is strictly platonic. He also reveals to Chapel that Angel’s lover is his half-brother Sybok.
