A Singular Destiny is a 2009 Star Trek novel by Keith R.A. DeCandido. The novel is the first of several books set after the Star Trek: Destiny trilogy, exploring the fallout of the Borg Invasion. The book centers around the character of Sonek Pran, a Federation diplomat, and his mission on the USS Aventine.

DescriptionEdit

The shape of things to come.
The cataclysmic events of Star Trek: Destiny have devastated known space. Worlds have fallen. Lives have been destroyed. And in the uneasy weeks that follow, the survivors of the holocaust continue to be tested to the limits of their endurance.
But, strange and mysterious occurrences are destabilizing the galaxy's battle-weary Allies even further. In the Federation, efforts to replenish diminished resources and give succor to millions of evacuees are thwarted at every turn. On the borders of the battered Klingon Empire, the devious Kinshaya sense weakness—and opportunity. In Romulan space, the already-fractured Empire is dangerously close to civil war.
As events undermining the quadrant's attempts to heal itself become increasingly widespread, one man begins to understand what is truly unfolding. Sonek Pran—teacher, diplomat, and sometime advisor to the Federation President—perceives a pattern in the seeming randomness. And as each new piece of evidence falls into place, a disturbing picture encompassing half the galaxy begins to take shape, revealing a challenge to the Federation and its allies utterly unlike anything they have faced before.

SummaryEdit

With the Federation still recovering from the recent Borg attack, President Bacco asks history professor and current presidential adviser Sonek Pran to meet with Empress Donatra of the Imperial Romulan State and ask her to provide aid to the Romulan Star Empire. Sonek travels to Achernar Prime aboard the Aventine and manages to convince Donatra but Tal'Aura declines the aid and also breaks off the aid agreement with the Federation.

A series of other mysterious incidents occur: Zalda seems on the verge of leaving the Federation after refusing to accept any more refugees, Federation mining on Capella IV and Maxia Zeta IV is sabotaged and the Kinshaya invade Klingon space and capture the worlds Krios and H'atoria, using Breen and Romulan technology, with Martok's son Drex killed defending Krios. Pran suspects that, since Zalda and H'atoria are along main trade routes, someone is trying to disrupt the alliance between the Federation and the Klingons.

Pran travels to Zalda and manages to convince the government there that everyone has been duped, the refugees that claimed to have been turned away from Zalda were imposters. Klag leads a detachment to recapture Krios only to find the Kinshaya aided by Breen, Gorn and Tzenkethi ships; however, they are still defeated thanks to the arrival of other ships from Klag's fleet. Pran realises a Ferengi named Sekki is behind the acts of sabotage but finds she has been murdered. However, the currency she was paid in, from a power known as the Typhon Pact, suggests who her employers were.

The Federation find that the Typhon Pact is an alliance between the Romulan Star Empire, the Tholians, the Breen, the Tzenkethi, the Gorn and the Kinshaya, which is powerful enough to rival the Federation and the Klingons. Disturbed by this development, Bacco and Martok invite the leaders of the Imperial Romulan State, the Cardassians, the Ferengi and the Talarians to a summit to discuss them joining the Khitomer Accords.

TimelineEdit

The novel begins in April 2381, two months after the events of Destiny, and continues until mid-May. The novel also features numerous transcripts and reports to illustrate various points, some contemporaneous with the events of the novel (stardates 58307.7 to 58322.2, including the Klingon date of 180th day of Year of Kahless 1007), while others are from events prior to the novel:

A reference to the USS Titan nearing the end of its mission Kavrot sector in chapter 12, places that chapter, and the next two which take place at approximately the same time, at the end of April, per chronological placements of that mission in Over a Torrent Sea.
