Elcidar Beta Three — a tranquil, undisturbed planet strategically located between the Federation and the Klingon Empire.

When Captain Kirk and the Enterprise arrive to aid the Midgwins, they find themselves caught up in that race’s struggle for survival…a struggle whose climactic battle pits them against a creature of darkness and shadow — an entity who roams the Enterprise corridors as if it owned them — an enemy who will not hesitate to kill to achieve its ultimate goal…
