- Stardate 8121.8 (Reference Stardates 2/2206.16-2/2206.20): Khan Noonien Singh and his followers on Ceti Alpha V capture the U.S.S. Reliant NCC-1864, and use it to ambush the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701, now manned by Starfleet Academy cadets on a training cruise under Admiral Kirk and Captain Spock. Following a battle in the Mutara Nebula near Regula 1, Khan is killed and the Enterprise is severely damaged. Spock sacrifices himself to save the ship from the detonation of the Genesis Device, which Khan stole prior to the battle. His body is launched into space, but lands on the newly-formed Genesis Planet. En route to Earth Spacedock, the Enterprise drops off Dr. Carol Marcus at Regula I, while Dr. David Marcus and Lieutenant Saavik transfer to the U.S.S. Grissom NCC-638 to continue studying the Genesis Planet.

- Stardate 8210.3 (Reference Stardates 2/2206.21-2/2206.27): After returning to Earth, Kirk meets with Ambassador Sarek, Spock's father, and the pair discover that before his death, Spock telepathically transferred his mind, or katra, into Dr. McCoy, who has been taken into custody for psychological evaluation by Starfleet Security. While Kirk and the other members of the Enterprise crew steal the ship in order to return to the Genesis Planet to retrieve Spock's body, David Marcus and Saavik find a Vulcan child on the Genesis Planet, who proves to be the regenerated body of Spock, growing at an accelerated rate. Meanwhile, the Grissom is destroyed by a Klingon bird of prey commanded by the ambitious Commander Kruge, who wants the secrets of Genesis at any cost. Marcus is killed, and Kirk is forced to destroy the Enterprise to keep it out of Klingon hands. Kirk kills Kruge in hand-to-hand combat, and he escapes with his crew aboard Kruge's ship as the Genesis Planet disintegrates around them. They take the bird of prey to Vulcan, where Spock's katra is reunited with his revived body.
