The omnibus edition of an epic crossover trilogy uniting characters from every corner of the Star Trek universe, and revealing the shocking origin and final fate of the Federation's most dangerous enemy--the Borg.
DESTINY #1: GODS OF NIGHT
THE BORG RETURN—WITH A VENGEANCE.
Blitzkrieg attacks by the Borg leave entire worlds aflame. No one knows how they are slipping past Starfleet’s defenses, so Captain Picard and the crew of the Enterprise have to find out—and put a stop to it.
Thousands of light-years away, Captain Riker and the crew of the Titan follow bizarre energy pulses to a mysterious, hidden world. But what they find there is a figure out of history: a Starfleet captain long thought dead.
At the same time, in the Gamma Quadrant, a new captain and her crew investigate the wreck of the Earth starship Columbia NX-02, missing in action for more than two centuries.
Four starships. Four captains. Four lives about to intersect—and discover their shared Destiny.
DESTINY #2: MERE MORTALS
IT’S A CLASH OF CIVILIZATIONS.
The Borg have found a secret passage through subspace and are using it to attack the Federation. But the passage is one of many that the Enterprise crew finds inside a nebula, and Captain Picard and Captain Dax must find the right one—and lead a counterstrike to stop the impending Borg invasion.
Meanwhile, Captain Riker and the Titan’s crew are held captive by the reclusive and powerful aliens known as the Caeliar. The Titan’s freedom hinges on the action of fellow prisoner Erika Hernandez, commander of the long-lost Earth starship Columbia.
Hernandez has lived among the Caeliar for centuries—enduring disasters, accidental time-travel, and interstellar exile. After so long as their prisoner, will she dare to fight for her freedom? Or is an eternity in captivity her inescapable Destiny?
DESTINY #3: LOST SOULS
THE FINAL BATTLE HAS BEGUN.
An armada of several thousand Borg cubes has wiped out a fleet of ships sent by the Federation and its allies. The Collective’s goal this time isn’t assimilation—it’s extermination.
Captain Picard, Captain Riker, and Captain Ezri Dax unite in a final desperate bid to halt the Borg’s genocidal march through known space. But their three starships—the Enterprise, the Titan, and the Aventine—are no match for the Borg armada. Or are they?
With them is Erika Hernandez, former captain of the Columbia. She has powers and insight gained from centuries of living with the aliens known as the Caeliar. She can end the Borg threat forever—or transform it into an unstoppable menace that will devour the galaxy.
Destruction or salvation—only one can be her final Destiny.
Simply a classic!
David Mack has written a modern day Star Trek classic with this ultimate final confrontation with the Borg!
An epic saga with one minor annoyance
Mack tells an epic tale that spans millennia and the range of human emotion. I love how he jumps around from starship to starship and perspective to perspective; it all works together and adds many dimensions to a story that revolves around....well...destiny. The only criticism I have about books by this author is the constant need to describe how attractive the women are at every opportunity, even when the scene is a firefight and billions of lives hang in the balance. I get it, they're attractive. It's a bit distracting but it's a small complaint in an otherwise compelling work that is hard to put down.
Great read! Interesting twists. I thoroughly enjoined this trilogy.
