The second novel in my Star Trek trilogy, released monthly during the the 50th anniversary year for the series!
Continuing the milestone 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek—an epic trilogy that stretches from the events of The Original Series movie The Search for Spock to The Next Generation!
The Klingon-Federation alliance is in peril as never before. Lord Korgh has seized control of the House of Kruge, executing a plot one hundred years in the making. The Klingon cult known as the Unsung rampages across the stars, striking from the shadows in their cloaked Birds-of-Prey. And the mysterious figure known as Buxtus Cross launches a scheme that will transform the Klingon Empire forever.
Into danger flies Admiral William T. Riker and the USS Titan, charged with protecting the peace forged nearly a century before during the Khitomer Accords. Aided by Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the USS Enterprise, Riker and his officers scour the stars, seeking to find the Unsung and uncover the truth behind the conspiracy before time runs out.
Yet even as Commander Worf departs on a deeply personal mission of honor, hidden sinister forces seek to turn the crisis to their advantage. And the conspirators’ plans threaten to spiral out of control, jeopardizing the very empire they aspire to rule.
Since seeing Star Trek III and VI — and the later Klingon Empire episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation — I had always longed to tell a story that laced the two eras together, showing how much the relationship between the Klingons and the Federation had changed. I also wanted to craft a political thriller, interlaced with heavy doses of action and a look at parts of Klingon society we rarely saw on screen.
After nearly two years’ work, Star Trek: Prey is the result — a trilogy releasing monthly as…
- Book 1: Hell’s Heart
- Book 2: The Jackal’s Trick
- Book 3: The Hall of Heroes
Spanning exactly a hundred years, we see Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and the original Enterprise crew — and how events in their time go on to impact Picard, Riker, Worf, and the Next Generation era. At the root: the legacy of Commander Kruge, who never would have tolerated the future Klingon/Federation alliance — and the many who sought control of his powerful warrior house. The Klingons, as most know, have a proverb about revenge being a dish best served cold; Star Trek: Prey shows just how long some very motivated people will wait to serve it!
