Sector 221-G: for the whole of Federation history, this large area of space has been controlled by the Thallonians, a cruel, militaristic race of which little is known except that they rule the other races in their sector with vicious iron hand. Now the Thallonian Empire has collapsed and the systems it once ruled are in chaos. Old hatreds are surfacing. Petty tyrants control deadly weapons. World after world is descending into disorder and self-destruction. The Federation must send a starship to help where it can and report what it finds. That ship is the USS Excalibur, a newly refit Ambassador-class starship commanded by Captain Mackenzie Calhoun and manned by Starfleet’s best and brightest, including some old friends from Star Trek: The Next Generation and some of the most dynamic new characters ever to crew a Federation starship. Join Captain Calhoun and the crew of the USS Excalibur as they explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Mangold | 4/10/2013

    " Straddles the gap between mediocre and adequate. Quit reading after completing the first two of four books in this omnibus. Pure pulp, but at least Trek pulp. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Mckenzie | 4/6/2013

    " The first two and fourth sections, written by Peter David, are fine. The third seems like it was written by an elementary student. Overall the characters are a bit poorly developed and one dimensional and the action seems flat. Hoping this series improves with the next book for I'm ditching it. "
