Created by the incalculably ancient Iconians, whose transcendent technology is quantum levels beyond that of the Federation and its allies, the Gateways offer instantaneous transport across unimaginable distances. Throughout the known galaxy the sudden reactivation of the Gateways has destabilized interstellar relations between planets and cultures previously separated by countless light-years. Starfleet's finest have coped with the crisis as best they can, but circumstances have forced several valiant commanders to leap through separate Gateways into the unknown.

Captain James T Kirk of the original Starship Enterprise™

Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation®

Colonel Kira Nerys of Deep Space Nine

Captain Kathryn Janeway of the U.S.S. Voyager™

Captains Calhoun and Shelby of Star Trek®: New Frontier

Commander Nick Keller of the U.S.S. Challenger

All of these heroes have taken the ultimate gamble: hurling themselves through a Gateway without any knowledge of what lay beyond. Each faces a personally unique challenge, struggling to find a way back to the ships and homes they left behind.

And waiting behind at least one of the Gateways are the ageless Iconians, the primordial architects of the mysterious portals causing chaos throughout the Milky Way galaxy. Where did they disappear to, many long eons ago, and what do they want now? The answer lies on the other side... Download and start listening now!

    " I thought this was better than the rest of the series, which in general was only ok. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Review by David | 2/1/2003

    " The conclusion to the prior six Gateways novels. Although I liked the stories, I found the conclusion to be somewhat unsatisfying. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Review by Shannon Appelcline | 1/14/2003

    " This is really a half-witted way to finish off a big crossover event. I read just two of the stories before giving up, the Next Generation and New Frontiers stories, and found them both mediocre or worse. "
