The Romulan resistance rescues Spock.

 

Story Summary

 

Spock-Prime and Pardek are found guilty of crimes against the Romulan Empire by the Senate and sentenced to execution. The resistance movement springs them and Spock-Prime is able to leave Romulan space aboard Cyrano Jones' ship, having made inroads to peace. But Pardek's spies have also learned that the Empire plans to use the remaining red matter to destroy the Vulcan fleet now gathering at Ceti Alpha V. Spock-Prime reaches the fleet in time to warn Elder T'Pah, with Sarek's support.

 

Meanwhile, the Romulans have sent a large fleet of ships to intercept the Vulcan fleet, with the former Narada crewmembers Arix and Vella planning to sacrifice themselves to set off the red matter in the midst of the Vulcan fleet.
