The USS Enterprise NCC-1701 warped out of the Sol system at the end of Star Trek Into Darkness and arrived at Rigel VII. The normal landing party beamed down to the planet leaving Sulu in command. They were searching the big city when they were attacked by a Kalar. Scotty set his phaser to vaporize and killed the Kalar. Captain Kirk noted that there would be more Kalar coming, so he told the landing party to stay alert. 3 Kalar jumped out and attacked the landing party. In response, the landing party killed the 3 Kalar. Kirk realized that they would have to kill a large number of Kalar on the planet, so he cancelled the landing party and everyone beamed back to the Enterprise. Spock advised Kirk that he broke the Prime Directive. Kirk told Spock to chill out. The Enterprise left the Rigel system and warped to Cygnius VIII. When the Enterprise arrived at Cygnius VIII, the landing party beamed down to the planet, leaving Sulu in command of the ship. They met Teryu, who was the head chieftain. Uhura broke a local law and they were going to arrest her. But Captain Kirk said "Oh no, you don't!" He called up the Enterprise and said "Beam us up!" The landing party beamed back to the Enterprise. The Enterprise then left Cygnius VIII. The Ruling Council filed a complaint to the Federation. Starfleet ordered the Enterprise back to Cygnius VIII. The Enterprise went back to Cygnius VIII. Kirk and Scotty beamed down and found Klingons in the Senate. Kirk ordered the Klingons to leave the planet immediately. The Klingons beamed aboard the Devastor and left Cygnius VIII. The Ruling Council was indebted to Kirk and dropped all charges against Uhura.
