Description:

Fans of Peter David's bestselling "New Frontier" saga have been eagerly awaiting a new adventure featuring Captain Mackenzie Calhoun, Captain Elizabeth Shelby, and the crews of the Starships "Excalibur" and "Trident." Now at last, Calhoun and Shelby return in an exciting page-turner that explores the past of both captains -- while simultaneously confronting them with a perilous dilemma in the present. A crewman has been murdered aboard the "U.S.S. Trident," and all evidence points to Ensign Janos of the "Excalibur." Calhoun is reluctant to accept that Janos, a powerful non-humanoid whom the captain has known and trusted for years, could be a killer and immediately launches an investigation into the crime. But this troubling murder mystery soon escalates into a full-edged diplomatic crisis that threatens to pit Calhoun and Shelby against the entire United Federation of Planets -- and the "Starship Enterprise"(TM). Meanwhile, the turmoil involving Ensign Janos forces Calhoun to recall his own tempestuous past, his rocky relationship with a young Elizabeth Shelby, and a long-ago exploit that may have everything to do with the deadly emergency that now confronts them all!
