Publisher's description (translated from German)
The situation in the Lembatta Cluster grows worse! While fleets of the Federation and the Klingon Empire gather at their respective borders and watch what is happening in the depths of the stellar region suspiciously, the teams of the USS Prometheus and the IKS Bortas are sent on a race against time in order to break the growing spiral of violence.
In a fateful act of desperation, Captain Richard Adams and Captain Kromm set out on the trail of a secret arms factory. But they encounter an ancient enemy, one which seems invincible. Only together may these disparate commanders have the chance to find answers to their questions. Will they succeed in time – or will the galaxy once again be set in flame?
