The final novel in my Star Trek trilogy, released monthly during the the 50th anniversary year for the series!
The Klingon Empire stands on the precipice. In the wake of violence from the cult known as the Unsung, paranoia threatens to break Chancellor Martok’s regime. Klingons increasingly call for a stronger hand to take control … one that Lord Korgh, master manipulator, is only too willing to offer.
But other forces are now in motion. Assisted by a wily agent, the Empire’s enemies secretly conspire to take full advantage of the situation. Aboard the USS Titan, Admiral William T. Riker realizes far more than the Federation’s alliance with the Klingons is in danger. With the Empire a wounded animal, it could either become an attacker—or a target.
Yet even as hostilities increase, Commander Worf returns to the USS Enterprise and Captain Jean-Luc Picard with a daring plan of his own. The preservation of both the Empire and the Federation alliance may hinge on an improbable savior leading a most unlikely force….
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 erastogether, showing how much the relationship between the Klingons andtheFederation had changed. I also wanted to craft a politicalthriller,interlaced with heavy doses of action and a look at parts ofKlingonsociety 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 wouldhavetolerated the future Klingon/Federation alliance — and the manywhosought control of his powerful warrior house. The Klingons, asmostknow, 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!
