Shadows Have Offended is an upcoming Pocket TNG novel by Cassandra Rose Clarke. It is set during the Star Trek: The Next Generation series and focuses on Deanna Troi and Beverly Crusher.


The USS Enterprise has been granted the simple but unavoidable honor of ferrying key guests to Betazed for a cultural ceremony. En route, sudden tragedy strikes a Federation science station on the isolated planet Kota, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard has no qualms sending William Riker, Data, and Chief Medical Officer Beverly Crusher to investigate. But what begins as routine assignments for the two parties soon descends into chaos: Picard, Worf, and Deanna Troi must grapple with a dangerous diplomatic crisis as historic artifacts are stolen in the middle of a high-profile ceremony... while nothing is as it seems on Kota. A mounting medical emergency coupled with the science station's failing technology – and no hope of rescue – has Doctor Crusher racing against time to solve a disturbing mystery threatening the lives of all her colleagues...
