When Kirk says, Engage
Whenever Captain Kirk takes the starship Enterprise out to explore the cosmos he issues a single command, “Engage.” What follows next is always an adventure. In some episodes frightening alien creatures take over the ship shutting down propulsion and life-support. The captain and crew struggle not only to get essential systems back online, but also to understand what these strangers want and how to reason with them. The captain seeks to open a channel of communication so that he can tell them that mission of the ship is peaceful.
