Summary Edit

Publisher's description (translated from German)
Near the border with the Klingon Empire, a number of brutal terrorist attacks have taken place, resulting in thousands of casualties.
Who is behind the attacks? Are they fanatics from the mysterious Renao species which has settled in the neighboring Lembatta Cluster? Or is the sinister Typhon Pact responsible? Starfleet sends the USS Prometheus, their strongest combat vessel, to solve the mystery in this border region before the next war breaks out in the galaxy.
Extra: fold-out pages with an overview of the Prometheus.
