Following his return home from the battle at the Mutara Nebula, the Enterprise crew learns the Genesis Sector has become off limits, and that the Enterprise is to be decommissioned. Kirk is subsequently visited by Sarek, father to his late friend Spock. Sarek informs him Spock should have passed his Katra, his living spirit, to someone else before he died. It is the Vulcan way. Since Kirk has not received any such Katra, the two of them first assume Spock's Katra died with him, but then Kirk checks out the Engineering video logs and discoveres Spock passed his spirit to McCoy. Determined to bring peace to both Spock and McCoy, Kirk steals the Enterpise from Spacedock and sets course for the Genesis Planet.
