In this unforgettable Star Trek adventure spanning three generations, a series of ancient weapons wreak havoc across the galaxy.
When Captain Jonathan Archer of the USS Enterprise discovers ancient weapons of absolute power scattered across the Alpha Quadrant, he and the rest of Starfleet are warned to stay clear of these dangerous devices.
A century later, Captain James T. Kirk and Commodore Matt Decker of the USS Constellation come across an artifact on the colony world of Alpha Proxima II—a world ravaged by a mysterious plague. Can they discover the significance of this artifact and bring order to Proxima before it’s too late?
One hundred years after that, Commander Benjamin Sisko of Station Deep Space Nine enlists the aid of Captain Declan Keogh of the USS Odyssey to help construct a farming colony on Bajor’s second moon. But the colony is placed in jeopardy when the Bajoran terrorist Orta discovers a strange artifact that threatens destruction on a massive scale.
