Tensions are at a fever pitch following the murder of Prime Minister Si Cwan, and the sudden power vacuum will have ramifications for Captain Mackenzie Calhoun...
It is a time of political upheaval and uncertainty in the New Thallonian Protectorate. Following the brutal assassination of her husband, Si Cwan, former Starfleet officer-turned-newly-appointed-Prime Minister Robin Lefler must now face the growing danger and intrigue surrounding her newborn son and heir to the noble line of Cwan. Following a harrowing assassination attempt, Robin has no choice but to flee New Thallon with her child...seeking refuge with Captain Mackenzie Calhoun and the crew of the U.S.S. Excalibur and creating a major diplomatic crisis in Sector 221-G.
The political fallout between the Federation and the New Thallonian Protectorate pales, however, in comparison to the threat of an enigmatic alien race determined to seize the infant Cwan for its own mysterious purposes. But nothing could possibly prepare Calhoun for the shocking betrayal from within—an act of treachery to aid and abet this alien race—forever altering the lives of the Excalibur crew....

The best star trek saga continues
First off this is not one for the uninitiated, if you're not familiar with 'new frontier' then start with house of cards and treat yourself to the whole range. If you do know Calhoun and his. Crew then this is a great continuation of their adventures. As always David's characterisation an prose are pin sharp making for an easy read that alas is over too soon. The story ties into the recent comic series and begins to reveal a new threat to the federation. I for one eagerly await what David will do now this star trek timeline has been severed from the big screen continuity. If only the man would write faster.
