From the back cover
A Federation-aligned planet is thrown into chaos by a wave of sudden violence. When the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D arrives to investigate, the source of the madness gripping this planet boards the ship and reveals itself to be the entity Redjac from the classic Star Trek episode "Wolf in the Fold", seeking revenge against the Federation for its treatment at the hands of Captain Kirk.
On board the USS Enterprise, the entity takes up residence in the holodeck, where it discovers a program reminiscent of an era much to its liking – Victorian London, home of Jack the Ripper. With the Ripper stalking the fog shrouded streets, the task of tracking it downfalls to Data, in the guise of his favorite holo-detective – Sherlock Holmes!
A "sequel" of sorts to one of the most-loved Star Trek episodes of all time, Star Trek: The Next Generation – Embrace the Wolf brings together elements of science fiction, mystery, and horror to tell a remarkable Star Trek tale!

Captain's log. Stardate 47319.2. The Enterprise has been ordered to the planet Enoch-7, where a recent outbreak of inexplicable, worldwide violence has thrown Enochian society into chaos. Since the early days of the Federation, the Enochians have been an extraordinary example of harmonious living, of prosperity through peace. In recent months, however, things have changed. Dramatically.
Captain's log, stardate 47322.2. I wish I could share President Simone's confidence that Redjac's evil has been contained forever. But a being like this, with a lifespan unimaginable to creatures of flesh, might have a different definition of forever. For now we must comfort ourselves assuage our fears, with the knowledge that as long as there is a Federation of Planets, the Enochians will not stand vigil alone against the unknown dangers of the universe… and the all-too-familiar horror which, for now, lies dormant upon their third moon.

A peaceful people that have been living in a unified utopia since the Federation's founding, they have often served as a moral model for the Federation. Though never members, they are close allies, and when the Redjac entity strikes the distress call they send is directly to the Federation. They have a space military force, though their ships are mostly technologically inferior to the Enterprise.
