Publisher's Summary

Three hundred years ago, the S.S. Valiant was destroyed during an ill-fated attempt to cross the legendary Galactic Barrier. Starfleet had always assumed that the Valiant had perished with all hands aboard, until a pair of unusual humanoids arrive at Starbase 209, claiming to be the descendants of a handful of Valiant survivors who found refuge on an M-Class planet beyond the Barrier. Even more shocking, the visitors warn that a hostile alien species, the Nuyyad, are preparing to invade our galaxy. Starfleet orders the U.S.S. Stargazer to investigate at once. Lieutenant Commander Jean-Luc Picard is second officer on the Stargazer and has yet to command a vessel of his own. He develops a special bond with one of the visitors, a strikingly beautiful woman who has inherited mysterious psychic abilities from her alleged Starfleet ancestors. But can Picard trust her? When the Stargazer is ambushed by Nuyyad warships, Picard finds himself in command - trapped on the wrong side of the Barrier, cut off from Starfleet. The Stargazer and the entire Federation may depend on the decisions Picard must make. The Valiant is a gripping saga that explores an untold chapter in the life of Jean-Luc Picard - and reveals the making of a captain!

    "Great Story of the Young Picard"

    This turned out to be a very good story. Taking its cue from the original "Star Trek" episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before," <i>The Valiant</i> takes us across the Galactic Barrier to meeet a new, more deadly foe and gives us some insight into the young Picard and how he became Capitain of the "Stargazer." Abridgements don't always work well, but this one does an excellent job of sticking to the main plot points and allowing the story to move forward without losing much. Anthony Stewart Head, Giles of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fame, does a great job as narrator; although, his impression of Patrick Stewart's Picard did not sound so great. Overall, this was a very good story and well worth listening to.
