From the Captain's log-some earlier adventures of the Starship Enterprise on its mission to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and civilisations, to go boldly where no man has gone before.
The Star-Ship Enterprise encounters an enormous mechanical monster in space, set on a path of destruction, and so huge that whole worlds are being crushed into rubble. Only an act of supreme sacrifice can save the galaxy.

On 2 January 1962 Det Chief Insp Barlow and Det-Sgt Watt talked by the graveside of a murdered Newtown constable. The shooting of this copper triggered off the crime patrol system of policing in Victor Division.
Ten years later, 200 or so miles away from Newtown, Det Chief Supt Barlow and Det-Supt Watt talk by a stinking wharfside about a Task Force operation.
Circumstances have changed; methods have changed; but there is a constant factor ever-present in police work - danger.
