This book is part of the new line of Trek novels that are free to go in their own direction and don't have to worry about conflicting with the films or shows, since they are clearly done and the original series has been relaunched. They ensure that the "Next Generation" stories continue, but they go in a radical direction. These novels explore a Trek storyline where the heroes do not really save the day and much of the universe has been devastated by the Borg and is in the process of recovery. Also, unlink "old school" Trek novels, these new novels do connect to eachother and follow a regular continuity. What is also unusual about this novel is that it introduces new characters, most of whom are citizens rather than military personel, thus showing more of the everyday person's point of view. For those expecting to see Picard and the gang, know that they do not appear in the novel. The only character from any of the shows or films to be included in the story is Ezri Dax, but she is not the principal character. It is interesting to see the new life being breathed into this part of the franchise now that the filmed versions are concluded.
