The soldiers of Armageddon are on the march, laying waste to worlds in their passage. An audacious plan could stop them forever, but it carries risks that one starship captain is unwilling to take. For Captain Jean-Luc Picard, defending the future has never been so important, or so personal -- and the wrong choice will cost him everything for which he has struggled and suffered.
For Captain William Riker, that choice has already been made. Haunted by the memories of those he was forced to leave behind, he must jeopardize all that he has left in a desperate bid to save the Federation.
For Captain Ezri Dax, whose impetuous youth is balanced by the wisdom of many lifetimes, the choice is a simple one: there is no going back -- only forward to whatever future awaits them.
But for those who, millennia ago, had no choice...this is the hour of their final, inescapable destiny.

Once again, the author has managed to capture the true essence of Star Trek in this novel. With old and new characters so real and true to form, this is among the best literature from the Star Trek genre I have ever read. I highly recommend it and the entire collection!

I haven't had the opportunity to read a book, let alone a series like this in a very long time and I have truly enjoyed this journey that David Mack created for us, with the separate plot subjects all leading (seamlessly) to a very climatic and trilling conclusion. A great series from start to finish! and a note to the other critics..... I thought this added a very real and human response to a person who is dealing with multiple internal and external stressors. (yes, I,m a fan of Picard and would never support a demoralizing portrayal of him, but to quote the man himself "I,m only human, number one.") These novels have opened my love for star trek again and hope that Mr. Mack will provide us with many more thrilling adventures!
