commanded by captain Hikaru Sulu, is at the forefront of exploration,
diplomacy, and the defence of the Federation. Unprecedented
peace talks with the xenophobic Tholian Assembly trigger a
deadly confrontation. Now Sulu and his crew are thrust into
an unexpected conflict between the Tholians and a mysterious
new enemy, the Neyel... whose origins, if revealed, could
lead to war with Earth itself...
both well written and entertaining, which is a good start.
It also sees Sulu wrestling with his conscience as he struggles
to do the right thing. This book illustrates what an excellent
captain Sulu would have made - dare I say to equal Kirk?
This book is also the first in a new series of books entitled
The Lost Era, that charts the 70 years between Captain
Kirk's disappearance and the beginning of The Next Generation.

Rand, Chapel and Tuvok among his crew.
