Uhura, Spock, and Sulu are travelling by shuttle with a valuable artifact of a long dead civilization. They are to take this object, a Slaver stasis box to Starbase 36 for study. The box holds its contents in perfect stasis, even for a billion years. Its contents could provide vital clues to the ancient Slaver society, a civilization that ruled the galaxy a billion years ago. Previous stasis boxes yielded invaluable treasure. What secrets does this box hold? What dangers? And will the crew be able to keep it from falling into the wrong hands?
Has anyone ever told you that you have a certain glow about you, Lieutenant?
