An exhilarating thriller from bestselling author Dayton Ward set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation, following Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew as they explore the previously uncharted and dangerous Odyssean Pass. Surveying a nebula as part of their continuing exploration of the previously uncharted “Odyssean Pass,” Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise encounter a rogue planet. Life signs are detected on the barren world’s surface, and then a garbled message is received: a partial warning to stay away at all costs. Determined to render assistance, Picard dispatches Commander Worf and an away team to investigate, but their shuttlecraft is forced to make an emergency landing on the surface—moments before all contact is lost and the planet completely disappears. Worf and his team learn that this mysterious world is locked into an unending succession of random jumps between dimensions, the result of an ambitious experiment gone awry. The Enterprise crewmembers and the alien scientists who created the technology behind this astonishing feat find themselves trapped, powerless to break the cycle. Meanwhile, as the planet continues to fade in and out of various planes of existence, other parties have now taken notice…. ™, ®, & © 2016 CBS Studios, Inc.

The inhabitants of Thanet believe that once every five thousand years the Death-Bringer destroys their world in a torrent of fire in order to herald a new cycle of creation -- and the eve of destruction is almost upon them. Billions will die. To Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise, the Death-Bringer appears to be nothing more than a rogue comet, and one that could easily be destroyed. But Picard's position is challenged when his Counsellor, the empath Deanna Troi, discovers that the comet is alive...

Assigned to help evacuate the planet Ntigano before the total failure of its sun, the crew of the Starship Enterprise are engaged in delicate negotiations with the only people who can help them: a proud and volatile neighbouring race known as the Tsorans. To assist their efforts, Riker and Worf are assigned a different diplomatic task. As a show of friendship and good faith, they are serving as honor guards to a young Tsoran prince, accompanying him to a royal hunting preserve. There, a combination of technology-damping fields and some of the galaxy's deadliest predators are supposed to test the skills of the young Tsoran noble in the 'kaphoora' - the hunt. When their shuttlecraft crashes inside the preserve, however, what should have been a civilised formality turns into a terrifying struggle for survival. Cut off from both Tsora and the Enterprise, without the benefit of either tricorders or phasers, Riker, Worf and their royal charge must fight for their lives with the only resources they have: spear and bat'leth - tooth and claw.
