Beyond the borders of the Federation, Captain James T. Kirk works to defend an isolated colony on a newly discovered planet, hinder aggression from neighboring alien races, and ensure the survival of a brave new world in this unputdownable Star Trek novel.
The tenacious colonists of Belle Terre have survived countless hardships and natural disasters of their new home, only to face a deadly foreign enemy. The alien species Kauld, intent on claiming the world’s unique resources for their own, are determined to destroy the human settlements at any cost. Months away from any hope of Starfleet reinforcements, the Starship Enterprise is all that stands between Belle Terre and an all-out alien invasion. But Kirk and his valiant crew may not be enough to save the planet from a relentless assault by the ultimate superweapon.
