Book #6 of 6
Far from the reaches of the Federation, the Starship Enterprise has been
guiding the development of a once obscure colony planet upon whose fate
the future of the galaxy may now depend. The Enterprise has been the sole
representative of the Federation, fighting a constant battle to protect the
colonists from enemy aliens and standing alone against all those who have
their own designs on the colony world.
But all adventures come to an end. It is time for Captain Kirk and the
Enterprise to turn over the guardianship of the colony to another ship and
crew. The new ship arrives in the midst of a deadly attack on the colony -
and is destroyed. With the Enterprise off fighting a new and powerful
enemy that threatens the colony as well as its enemies, Commander Nick
Keller, first officer and ranking survivor of the decimated crew, is marooned
and at first alone - but he must find a way to complete his original
mission and come to the aid of the Enterprise in what might be
its most desperate hour.
A pretty good ending to an extremely long series.
I enjoyed this novel for the most part, but I must say
I was very tired of the entire series.
I hope nobody writes a story that spans 6 novels again.
Let's get back to individual adventures!
