DescriptionEdit

As the USS Titan ventures beyond the outermost reaches of known space, the telepaths in her crew—including Diplomatic Officer Deanna Troi—are overwhelmed by an alien cry of distress, leading the ship to the scene of a shocking act of carnage: a civilization of interstellar "whalers" preying upon and exploiting a familiar species of sentient spaceborn giants.
Appalled but reluctant to rush to judgment, Captain William T. Riker and his crew investigate, discovering a cosmic spawning ground in a region of active star formation—the ecosystem for a bewildering array of diverse but similarly vast lifeforms. While attempting to negotiate an end to the victimization of these creatures, Riker's crew inadvertently grants them the means to defeat their hunters' purpose… only to learn that things are not exactly as they seem.

SummaryEdit

Part 1: Giants in the SkyEdit

PrologueEdit

Written in a stream-of-consciousness style, a school of space-born life-forms meet more of their kind. They are attacked and their call for help is answered.

Chapter 1Edit

USS Titan, Stardate 57137.8 (February 20, 2380, 10:30): Deanna Troi wakes up from a bad dream. She dismisses it as anxiety about the start of their mission, but cannot go back to sleep, so she takes a walk around the ship. While reflecting on the diversity of the Titan's crew, she passes the mess hall, where the ship's carnivores, including Dr. Ree, are eating. Continuing on, she encounters Dr. Ra-Havreii coming out of Ensign Lavena's quarters. She escorts him to his quarters while discussing his unwelcome advances on Ensign Panyarachun. She continues to brush off his advances on her until he is back in his quarters, when she admits to herself that they were amusing.
