Half a decade after the Dominion War and more than a year after the rise and fall of Praetor Shinzon, the galaxy's greatest scourge returns to wreak havoc upon the Federation -- and this time its goal is nothing less than total annihilation.
Elsewhere, deep in the Gamma Quadrant, an ancient mystery is solved. One of Earth's first generation of starships, lost for centuries, has been found dead and empty on a desolate planet. But its discovery so far from home has raised disturbing questions, and the answers harken back to a struggle for survival that once tested a captain and her crew to the limits of their humanity.
From that terrifying flashpoint begins an apocalyptic odyssey that will reach across time and space to reveal the past, define the future, and show three captains -- Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise, TM William Riker of the U.S.S. Titan, and Ezri Dax of the U.S.S Aventine -- that some destinies are inescapable.
A good read!
A very good read if you're interested in the continuing adventures of ST:TNG, ST:DS9, and ST:Voyager crews. Reminds of a some of the best episodes. Mack does very well of capturing the character essence from the series. Also very accessible to those not familiar to Trek.
In the grand tradition of the Star Trek novel quickly captures the imagination. This is a riveting read that leaves you hanging. Looking forward to the second book in the series.
It's was a great book it had me interested all the way through. Capt Dax was a great capt and very different from other starfleet captains. She also seemed the strongest of the three. Capt Riker seemed too wrapped up in personal problems to effectively command his ship till the very end of the book. Capt Picard was just a huge mess. He should of been relieved of command. When dr crusher is a stronger character than him it's time for him to step down.
The story of the Colombia and Capt Hernandez was so well written I wish there was more. For me it was the best part of the novel.
All in all it is a great book and worth the read. I just hope the next two novels are just as good.
