| As social experiment was
conceived. Its goal was to breed the best, the brightest, the
most malleable and most loyal soldiers to ever serve. To this
end, the Romulan Empire used its own children, blinded by the belief
that anything that would bring glory to the praetor was
justified. And when the winds of politics changed, these children
were abandoned, left to die on a world so horrifying that it was dubbed
- by those who dared to cling to life - Hellguard.
One wild child, Saavik, was rescued by Spock. He took the
half-Vulcan, half-Romulan child home to his parents, knowing that if
anyone could reach and rescue Saavik, it was them.
Now a Starfleet officer, Saavik has striven to honor her mentor and her
Vulcan heritage. But recent events have shaken her. Left
behind on Vulcan while the rest of the Enterprise crew goes to face
court-martial for stealing and destroying their ship, the young science
officer is adrift when two men from her past confront her. Tolek,
another Hellguard survivor, tells Saavik that the survivors are being
killed one-by-one and only they can discover who and why. The
other, a Romulan who claims to be her father, swears it is the Vulcans
who are eliminating the Hellguard survivors because they are an
embarrassment to all of Vulcan, but that she has the power to stop it,
by bringing down the Vulcan ambassador, Sarek.
Not knowing where to turn, not knowing whom to trust, Saavik must find
her own answers, and discover who she truly is.
