Publisher's descriptionEdit

Pocket Books' synopsis as published by StarTrek. com
The U.S.S. Enterprise and other starships that participated in the final battle in the Taurus Reach have been remanded to a remote starbase. While evacuees from the station are processed and the ships repaired, restocked, and re-staffed as needed, Captain James T. Kirk is ordered to report to Admiral Heihachiro Nogura, Starbase 47’s second and final commanding officer. Through flashbacks intercut with the ongoing conversation between Kirk and Nogura, the Enterprise 's involvement in the last days of Operation Vanguard — and the conflict between Starfleet and Tholian forces at Starbase 47—is now told from the perspective of Kirk and his crew."



Five days after Storming Heaven, with flashbacks to preceding weeks:

Admiral Nogura debriefs Captain Kirk regarding his assistance in the events of Storming Heaven. Over two years later (with Kirk now an admiral), the two men bury all surviving information on Operation Vanguard in the Starfleet Archives, locking it away for a century or more.
