Publisher's Summary

Continuing the milestone 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek - an epic new trilogy that stretches from the events of the Original Series movie The Search for Spock to The Next Generation!

When Klingon commander Kruge died in combat against James T. Kirk on the Genesis planet back in 2285, he left behind a powerful house in disarray - and a series of ticking time bombs: the Phantom Wing, a secret squadron of advanced Birds-of-Prey; a cabal of loyal officers intent on securing his heritage; and young Korgh, his thwarted would-be heir, willing to wait a Klingon lifetime to enact his vengeance.

Now, 100 years later, while on a diplomatic mission for the United Federation of Planets, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise are snared in the aged Korgh's trap - and thrust directly in the middle of an ancient conflict. But as Commander Worf soon learns, Korgh may be after far bigger game than anyone imagines, confronting the Federation-Klingon alliance with a crisis unlike any it has ever seen!

Great start to a series.

I've listened to countless Star Wars and Star Trek books. The former more than the latter due to their prevalence. This book has all the trappings of good sci fi. It's development of characters was a bit slow, but the pacing of the plot worked well. Worth a monthly credit any day.

Fabulous Unabridged Trek!

John Jackson Miller hits the ball out of the park with this new series! Robert Petkoff's narration is a treat! This story picks up in the continued post television run of all trek series that the creative authors of the Trek universe have added to. This 3 part series deserves that length, the character depth the battle scenes the background it's all wonderful!!! Hopefully audible & simon and Schuster see the incredible popularity of unabridged Star Trek and bring more treasures like this to the material continuum for purchase!

If you like start trek you'll like this. If not -

If you like start trek you'll like this. If not you won't. Story was enjoyable though thin on character movement. Stuff just happened. Never was worried about the characters.

Solid narration.

For Star Trek fans only...

The story feels just like you’ve jumped into an episode of STNG. That’s the best part. The author does a pretty good job of capturing the characters from STNG. Less so with the STOS characters. The narration is adequate at best and does little to enhance the story. This is the first ST book I’ve picked up so I’m unsure what to recommend instead. But if you’re a fan and starving for some STNG give it a shot.

it just didn't grab me

I had a hard time getting into the story in part because of the narrator's limited range and the middling audio quality. Even after that though it didn't grab me.

I got through it

I love Star Trek, but this was a slow, confusing start, for me. Once the story got going, it was much better. However, inserting Magic, seemed like cheating. I don’t think I want to continue with book 2 and 3.

Great book 1 of an excellent series

I’ve watched Star Wars since my youth and have seen it all. I’m a fan of most everything I’ve seen. Having said that, I’m new to the Star Trek publishing world and newer yet to the audio books.

I was thoroughly impressed by this book and even more so by the entire series. I enjoy it from start to finish and was bummed when I was done.

These are the kinds of books I like to read, exciting, captivating and Star Trek through and through.

Really good

Most Audible Star Trek books are a mediocre experienced at best, this one had a very impressive story and complicated plot and it was read by a very entertaining narrator. I'm looking forward to the next in the series.

Absolutely brilliant!

This Star Trek novelisation contains the lot: Klingons, the next generation crew, and the original crew. Both political intrigue and action make this novel difficult to put down! The narrator should be credited for his excellent Klingon and good English accent for Picard.
