PLOT OR PREMISE
This is the final in the series of six Star Trek books dealing with an assault with biological weapons on the Federation. This book takes the reader back to the time of Picard as Captain of the Stargazer and adds Tuvok and Jack Crusher to the series. Picard is assigned diplomatic duties for a system on the verge of war. Working together with Tuvok and Crusher, they quickly realize that the war is being primed by someone, but they’re just not sure who. Tuvok and Crusher go undercover and they form the majority of the story.
WHAT I LIKED
Tuvok’s and Crusher’s undercover antics are interesting reading, and represent a solid addition to Tuvok’s background.
WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE
Crusher’s character is only superficially developed, as is the character of the man who eventually becomes the assailant for the other five books.

I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the authors, nor do I follow them on social media.
