DescriptionEdit

Captain Janeway believed she commanded the only Starfleet vessel in the Delta Quadrant—until the USS Voyager came to the rescue of the USS Equinox, a battered starship besieged by a revenging horde of extra-dimensional predators.

Helmed by Captain Rudolph Ransom, the Equinox has been trapped in the Delta Quadrant even longer than the Voyager and the ship and crew show the scars of a constant struggle to survive. But Ransom and his people are hiding something as well: a shocking secret that will ultimately pit captain against captain, starship against starship, in an explosive conflict that may cost Voyager the life of her captain!

A powerful novel based on the thrilling two-part television adventure!
