The first original novel based on the hit series!


Pocket Books is proud to present the first original novel starring the crew of the starship Voyager. Stranded far across the galaxy, theirs is a voyage of a lifetime that will take them far into uncharted space… where no one has gone before.
The USS Voyager is in desperate trouble, her systems damaged, her warp engines failing. Without immediate repairs the starship and her crew will be trapped forever between the stars. Captain Kathryn Janeway must guide her ship to an ancient, deserted planet that could hold the key to their survival—a planet that is hiding more than one deadly secret…


Chapter OneEdit

As the USS Voyager continues its voyage home, the crew are forced to stop near a large asteroid belt in order to obtain armalcolite ore that will help repair the ship's Oltion circuits in the warp processor. Captain Janeway orders Lieutenants Tuvok and Torres to take a shuttlecraft into the belt to find the highest concentration of the ore.

As the shuttlecraft nears the largest asteroid the shuttle begins to buck wildly as a greater level of subspace turbulence hits the shuttle, which prevents them from locating the ore. Despite Janeway's suggestion that the team return to Voyager, Torres is determined to get the ore. However, the team is forced to return when the turbulence becomes too strong and cripples the shuttle's shields.

Following the team's return, Janeway calls a briefing of all the senior staff to discuss the increasingly desperate state of Voyager's systems. Aware of the problems, Neelix suggests that the crew visit the planet Alcawell. Alcawell is well known in the region for being a huge spaceship graveyard and he is sure that any parts Voyager may need could surely be salvaged from Alcawell. Despite concerns from several members of the staff, Janeway decides that it is worth the risk and orders a course set for Alcawell, despite stories from Neelix of the graveyard's being haunted.
