Publisher Description

An original novel set in the universe of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—a direct sequel to the New York Times bestselling story arc, The Fall!

The entire sector is waiting to see what the newly reopened Bajoran wormhole will mean for the shifting political landscape in the Alpha Quadrant. On Deep Space 9, Captain Ro Laren is suddenly drawn into the affairs of the People of the Open Sky, who have come to the station in search of sanctuary. Despite the opposition of the station's security officer, Jefferson Blackmer, Ro Laren and Deep Space 9's new CMO, Doctor Beverly Crusher, offer the People aid. But when Dr. Crusher’s highly secure files are accessed without permission—the same files that hold the secrets of the Shedai, a race whose powerful but half-understood scientific secrets solved the Andorian catastrophe—the People seem the likeliest suspects.

As tensions rise on the station, the science vessel Athene Donald arrives as part of its journey of exploration. The brainchild of Doctor Katherine Pulaski, this ship is crewed by different species from the Khitomer Accords and the Typhon Pact. Pulaski’s hope is that science will do what diplomacy has not: help the great powers put aside their hostilities and work together. But when the Athene Donald is summarily stopped in her voyage by the powerful vessel of a hitherto unknown species, Pulaski begins to wonder—will this first contact bring her crew together or tear them all apart?

Dr. Pulaski's Redemption

If you disliked the dreaded season of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Dr. Crusher took a year off and left a grumpy older woman to run sickbay, then this is the book for you to read. You will find that despite the fact that she has barely changed (aside from one key item that she gets called out on, and admits she was in error), there is a certain charm to her, and makes me feel that this is Dr. Pulaski done right. She's got a kind of unapologetic style to her, not really being sorry for who she is, yet recognizing when and where she's made mistakes.

This book makes me want to go back and watch the episodes that feature her. Reading this book, I feel that I have misjudged her. It also moves the Star Trek post-Nemesis storyline forward, and closes some loose ends from one of Uma's previous novels. Definitely a worthwhile read.
