The crew must fight off hellish hallucinations as the Enterprise transforms into a Divine Comedy.


From the back cover
The U.S.S. Enterprise has encountered many strange beings and situations but none has chilled them to the bone more than death. Someone aboard the starship has killed Captain Kirk – or so it seems. While the Captain recovers, it falls to his loyal crew to uncover the facts behind the case and learn whether one of their own is a cold-blooded killer.
The investigation is hampered by the unwanted arrival of the Klingons and an ill telepath who sends the entire crew on a journey through Dante's inferno. And then, just when everything is starting to calm down, Finnegan, Kirk's nemesis from his Academy days, arrives to take charge of the mystery.
Murder, mayhem, a wedding, and loads or action mark this graphic collection of stories featuring the Star Trek debut of acclaimed author Peter David.
