Half a decade after the Dominion War and more than a year after the rise and fall of Praetor Shinzon, the galaxy's greatest scourge returns to wreak havoc upon the Federation -- and this time its goal is nothing less than total annihilation. Elsewhere, deep in the Gamma Quadrant, an ancient mystery is solved. One of Earth's first generation of starships, lost for centuries, has been found dead and empty on a desolate planet. But its discovery so far from home has raised disturbing questions, and the answers harken back to a struggle for survival that once tested a captain and her crew to the limits of their humanity. From that terrifying flashpoint begins an apocalyptic odyssey that will reach across time and space to reveal the past, define the future, and show three captains -- Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise, TM William Riker of the U.S.S. Titan, and Ezri Dax of the U.S.S Aventine -- that some destinies are inescapable.

It builds upon the TNG-relaunch novels, the Titan-series and various other familiar characters - but don't worry, Destiny is quite a good point to get back into Trek without prior knowledge of the mentioned book-series.Given the spli...
Zum ersten Mal bespreche ich gleich eine ganze Trilogie. Die Captains Picard, Riker und Dax stellen sich der Bedrohung durch die Borg, die diesmal nicht assimilieren, sondern nurnoch auslöschen wollen. Das Video oben ist nur die erste Hälfte der Rezension, den zweiten Teil, der aber Spoiler enthält,...
Another good "Star Trek" novel featuring Picard and Riker's crews, with only one significant problem: By this novel's end, Troi is still carrying her deceased unborn child inside of her. Mr. Mack, is that how you're going to kill Mrs. Riker off? I surely hope not!
This was an enjoyable "Star Trek" novel, aside from one plot point. This might be somewhat of a spoiler, and it deals with a sensitive topic, so, be warned: I know a miscarriage is a tragic thing and very hard to accept, and I may not have two "X" chromosomes, but, for the life of me, I can't see w...
