Years after the five-year space exploration mission led by Captain James T. Kirk, the U.S.S. Enterprise was due for an upgrade. Will Decker, the newly assigned captain of the star-ship, watched over the completion of the refit. Kirk, now an admiral, took back command of the Enterprise to intercept the entity known as V’Ger. Decker remained as his Executive Officer and the heroic acts of the new crew saved Earth from a threat more powerful than humanity had ever faced.
The refitted Enterprise went on to see many adventures, including the defeat of Kirk’s old nemesis, Khan, in a battle at the Mutara Nebula. The ship met its ultimate demise in 2286, when a self-destruct command was initiated by Admiral Kirk as a last resort to overcome a Klingon attack.
