Timeline - Standard Timeline - 2268

Year Event
2268
1Captain Kirk orders the USS Enterprise to cross the border into Romulan space, apparently acting irrationally as a result of stress. The ship is quickly surrounded by Romulan battlecruisers, who order it to surrender. Kirk reveals to his crew that he is acting on Federation orders, having faked his condition in order to allow the Federation deniability if the mission failed. Kirk is successful in stealing one of the Romulan cloaking devices and returning with it, a major intelligence coup for the Federation.1
 People : James T. Kirk
 Species : Romulans
2The USS Enterprise destroys a colossal single-celled organism which is threatening to invade our galaxy.2
3The USS Enterprise tests the M-5 computer. Designed by Dr. Richard Daystrom, the M-5 is intended to allow Starships to operate with virtually no crew on board. The system malfunctions during testing, destroying the Starship Excalibur. The test convinces Starfleet that the removal of human thinking from Starships is wrong in principle, and no further moves along these lines are made.3
