In the 23rd Century, retired Starfleet officers James T. Kirk, Montgomery Scott and Pavel Chekov are guests of honor aboard the newly christened U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-B. The test run takes an unexpected turn when the starship encounters two El Aurian vessels inside the Nexus, a mysterious energy ribbon. During the perilous rescue attempt, Kirk is swept out into space.

Seventy years later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D rescue an El Aurian physicist named Soran. Unbeknownst to Picard, Soran harbors a deadly plan that includes the destruction of the Enterprise and millions of lives. Now Picard's only hope for a future rests within the Nexus… and a legendary captain from the past.
