The Federation is rocked to its core as the Typhon Pact is
suspected of being behind a barbarous act that shatters the fragile
peace of the Alpha Quadrant. An original Star Trek novel, this is
the fourth part of a five-book story arc that takes place over a
sixty-day period, but it is not necessary to read each novel in
order to follow the storyline, which involves all aspects of The
Next Generation and Deep Space Nine universes.
