A novel by Star Trek's creator Gene Roddenberry—based on the screenplay by Harold Livingston and story by Alan Dean Foster—the human adventure is just beginning.
The writer-producer who created Mr. Spock and all the other Star Trek characters— who invented the Starship Enterprise, who gave the show its look, its ideals— puts it all together again here in his first Star Trek novel!
Their historic five-year mission is over. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Scotty all the crew have scattered to other jobs or other lives. Now, they are back together again on a fabulously refitted USS Enterprise as an incredibly destructive power threatens earth and the human race.
Gene Roddenberry (1921-1991) was the legendary writer, producer, and creator of Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the bestselling author of the novelization for Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
