DescriptionEdit

Memory Prime: It's the central core of an immense computer library—an entire network of research planetoids. Here, the Pathfinders—the only artificial intelligences legally permitted to serve the Federation—control and sift the overwhelming data flow from thousands and thousands of research vessels across the galaxy
Now the greatest scientists in the Federation have gathered here for the prestigious Nobel and Zee-Magnees Prize ceremonies—unaware that a deadly assassin is stalking one of them. And as Captain Kirk struggles to save his ship from sabotage and his first officer from accusations of murder, he discovers the hidden assassin is far from the deadliest secret lurking on Memory Prime…

BackgroundEdit

  • The novel establishes Zefram Cochrane as a native inhabitant of Alpha Centauri. However, this contradicts the later film Star Trek: First Contact, which showed him to be a native of Earth after the Third World War. However, it is possible that he relocated to Alpha Centauri, and was considered a "naturalized" Centauran by the inhabitants there.
  • It is stated that Human achievement of warp technology came more than one hundred and fifty years ago, which places the dating around 2119 AD, while the Vulcans mastered the warp drive approximately one hundred years prior to that.
