Cmdr. Montgomery "Scotty" Scott -- confront strange alien races, friendly and hostile alike, as they explore unknown worlds.

Led by the brilliant scientist Dr. Nicholas Rush, a band of civilians and soldiers faces a whole new world -- and fights for survival -- after their secret military base is attacked.
