A rough-and-tumble alternate universe story of how the crew of the USS Enterprise first got together under the command of Capt. James T. Kirk. It has a bright sense of humor, and for the most part, doesn't take itself too seriously. There were plenty of winks and nods, and it was kind of fun to see young Kirk, Spock, Uhura, Chekov, Sulu, McCoy and Scotty acting like 2000-era twenty-somethings. Not for purists, but fun and enjoyable.
