- From the book jacket
- From the deepest, darkest reaches of space came the greatest threat the Federation had ever faced: the Borg. Half organic/half mechanical, the Borg were relentless and bent on conquering and "assimilating" all intelligent life; a single Borg vessel destroyed thirty-nine Federation starships, decimating Starfleet.
- Stronger and more dangerous than ever, they are ready to launch a new attack against the Federation, one that threatens its past… its present… and its future.
- Only the courage and determination of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew can prevent the Borg from striking at the heart of the Federation and Earth.
Background information Edit
- The audiobook version was abridged by George Truett.
- Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens wrote a section in this book (the hardcover, at least) on the making of the movie.
- Pocket Books released a trade paperback edition to its international markets simultaneously with the US hardcover.
- The novelization mentions Worf's posting to Deep Space 9 under Benjamin Sisko's command, unlike the film.
