A stunning sequel to Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country by one of the writers of the film!


From the book jacket
Captain Sulu of the USS Excelsior and his crew are kidnapped. When Federation-conducted negotiations come to a standstill, Captain James Kirk and the former officers of the USS Enterprise reunite to rescue their old comrade.
The officers learn carrying out their mission could prove difficult when they encounter the kidnappers – a greedy little-known race called the Thraxians, who believe their way is the only way. Now the Thraxians are demanding super-powerful weapons in exchange for the hostages.
With no other alternatives, Kirk is forced to consider giving in to the Thraxians to save the Excelsior crew – a decision that could save a few, but endanger the lives of an entire star system...
