'Never mourn Black Omne' was the warning.
Now through the Phoenix miracle of rebirth, the dread enemy lives again.
Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise crew must grapple hand to hand
with the most dangerous arch villain in the galaxy, the giant,
evil, immortal Omne who has vowed revenge.

I am taking the precaution of committing the following
information to file in the event of my death or disappearance.
As I record this, galaxy wide instances of violence
and political intrigue threaten to topple the Federation.
The Romulan Empire stands poised on the
boundaries of our territory. The Klingons threaten once
again to break the terms of the Organian Peace Treaty.
Long time friends change the convictions of a life time...
and long term allies the policies of generations.
Only one man can be responsible for the epidemic:
Omne - a man I watched die. Omne - dead and
now reborn. Recreated. His discovery of the Phoenix
process enables him to construct a duplicate
indistinguishable from the original down to the last
atom and memory impression . . . and against him,
I am helpless. For what can I offer to compare
with the promise of eternal life?
Without a doubt, one of Kirk's greatest foes.
This is a continuation of the novel "The Price of the Phoenix"
by the same authors. Typical of early novels, but
a good story none-the-less.
Make sure you read "The Price of the Phoenix" first!
