As Sulu negotiated the intricate orbital mechanics required to "assume standard orbit" around the ringed planet's Class-M moon, he managed to make a fly-by of the asteroid-ship Yonada, which had brought the Fabrini here in the first place. He wondered at the Admiral's prerogative at taking the newly refitted Enterprise this deep on a "shake-Down", but he supposed rank had it's privilages. That, and James Kirk had a profound debt to pay to his Chief Medical Officer and friend, for rudely hijacking him back into Starfleet. He was sure Natira, ex-High Priestess of Yonada, would be surprised.
Many thanks to Dennis Bailey over at Foundation #D for his beautifully constructed (and textured AND lit!) Enterprise Refit model. The rest of the stuff in the scene is mine.

I thought I'd take a break from the hard science fiction and get my dose of Trek!
Thanks for looking!
