Publisher's Summary

Created by the incalculably ancient Iconians, whose transcendent technology is quantum levels beyond that of the Federation and its allies, the Gateways offer instantaneous transport across unimaginable distances. Throughout the known galaxy the sudden reactivation of the Gateways has destabilized interstellar relations between planets and cultures previously separated by countless light-years. Starfleet's finest have coped with the crisis as best they can, but circumstances have forced several valiant commanders to leap through separate Gateways into the unknown.

Captain James T. Kirk (original series), Captain Jean-Luc Picard (The Next Generation), Colonel Kira Nerys (Deep Space Nine), Captain Kathryn Janeway (Voyager), Captains Calhoun and Shelby (New Frontier), and commander Nick Keller (Challenger) all have taken the ultimate gamble: hurling themselves through a Gateway without any knowledge of what lay beyond. Each faces a personally unique challenge, struggling to find a way back to the ships and homes they left behind.

Waiting behind at least one of the Gateways are the ageless Iconians, the primordial architects of the mysterious portals causing chaos throughout the Milky Way galaxy. Where did they disappear to, many long eons ago, and what do they want now? The answer lies on the other side...

Don't Bother

The book is a series of stories related to the Gateways introduced in the first Star Trek series. The stories include members from most of the various follow-on series. Of these stories only one is good, another is okay and the rest not so good.

Short stories

A bit quirkey, in it's lay out, short stories relating to the gateway from the Kirk Episode, where Macoy jumped through it a changed earth's history. Once you realise it only based on that you are ok, sit back and enjoy
