They call themselves Rihannsu
- The Declared. To the Federation, they are the Romulans.
By any other name they are adversaries as formidable as they are
inscrutable. Self exiled from Vulcan in
ages past, they retain an ancient martial philosophy and a code of
conduct that has sustained them through centuries of hardship, warfare,
and thwarted ambition.
Now their empire is gearing for war once
again. Armed with the revolutionary Sunseed technology, which can
destabilize entire stars, a Romulan vessel is warping toward the heart
of the Federation. Its target: Earth's sun.
But this offensive comes at a perilous
time, as a growing number of Romulan worlds are joining a revolution -
one led by the renegade Commander Ael t'Rllaillieu of the warbird
Bloodwing, with the air of Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship
Enterprise and the Hamalki physicist K's't'lk, the Federation's
foremost authority on Sunseed technology. As the threat to Earth
looms ever larger, Bloodwing and Enterprise lead an armada toward the
Romulan homeworld for a final reckoning that will decide the future of
the Rihannsu people.
