Der Ursprung allen Zorns (The Origin of Every Wrath) is a Star Trek: Prometheus novel co-written by Christian Humberg and Bernd Perplies, released in August 2016.

DescriptionEdit

Im Lembatta-Cluster, einer unheimlichen Raumregion am Rand der Föderation, wächst ein gefährliches Übel heran: Fanatische Anhänger der „Harmonie der Sphären“, die sich selbst die Reinigende Flamme nennen, rufen zum allumfassenden Krieg gegen die verderbten Reiche des Alpha- und des Beta-Quadranten auf. Der krankhaften Expansionslust der Menschen, Klingonen und anderen Völker muss Einhalt geboten werden – mit allen Mitteln.
Verzweifelt versucht die Mannschaft der U.S.S. Prometheus diese diplomatische und militärische Krise beizulegen. Dabei kämpfen Captain Richard Adams und seine Leute nicht nur mit den feindseligen Renao, sondern auch mit kriegslüsternen Klingonen, allen voran dem ruhmsüchtigen Captain der I.K.S. Bortas, dem einstigen Flaggschiff des verstorbenen Kanzlers Gowron, das der Hohe Rat ausgesandt hat, um das Problem auf die harte Tour zu lösen.

English version:

A dangerous evil is flourishing in the Alpha Quadrant. In the Lembatta Cluster, a curious region of space, fanatics who call themselves the Purifying Flame are trying to start a galactic war, and the warlike Klingons are baying for blood. The Federation have sent the U.S.S. Prometheus to settle the crisis, and the crew must contend with both the hostile Renao: the secretive inhabitants of the cluster, and the Klingon captain of the I.K.S. Bortas, who is desperate for war.

SummaryEdit

The Prometheus and the Bortas' mission to find the source of the Purifying Flame continues to be tense, with Klingon Captain Kromm continuing to favour more brutal methods and several of the Starfleet personnel displaying prejudice towards Renao crewmember Jassat ak Namur. Tension is further heightened by the discovery that the two Purifying Flame sympathisers who supposedly died under interrogation are actually alive and being further tortured by Kromm for his own amusement. There is also increasing evidence that the Renao, and others in the Lembatta Cluster, are being affected by a previously unknown form of radiation that heightens aggression.

A further Purifying Flame attack on the Klingon mining colony and observation post on Korinar increases tension and prompts Martok to order a Klingon fleet to invade the cluster. Kromm tries to use this as a pretext to attack a Renao planet but ends up in a stand-off with the Prometheus. Worf convinces Martok to wait 100 hours for investigations to continue. On Earth, Lwaxana Troi has her staff research the cluster and suspects a connection with the disappearance of the USS Valiant a century earlier.

A new scanning method developed by Prometheus communication officer Paul Winter tracks down the Valiant's log buoy, which indicates the crew killed each other in a fit of paranoia and insanity. Purifying Flame members keep referring to Iad, the legendary home world of the Renao that they were supposedly transplanted from 10,000 years earlier to save them from the Son of the Ancient Reds. The Prometheus and Bortas track a world hidden from sensors by the radiation and Spock begins to suspect a relationship with the Beta XII-A entity that two Enterprise crews previously encountered. A scan of the surface shows the wreck of the Valiant and Adams suspects its crash released the entity imprisoned there.
