The first original novel starring the crew of the "Starship Voyager", stranded far across the galaxy. Theirs is a voyage of a lifetime that will take them into unchartered space – where no one has gone before.
The U.S.S. Voyager is in desperate trouble, her systems damaged, her warp engines failing. Without immediate repairs the starship and her crew will be trapped forever between the stars. Captain Kathryn Janeway must guide her ship to an ancient, deserted planet that could hold the key to their survival – a planet that is hiding more than one deadly secret.
