From the book jacket
A new six-part epic covering the first year of service of the USS Enterprise-E, leading up to the events of the hit movie Star Trek: First Contact.
A major turning point in the lives of two of the Enterprise crew! Newly-promoted Admiral Hayes gives La Forge a shocking ultimatum: his VISOR is a security risk, and he must either have it replaced with ocular implants or be transferred to a less-sensitive post.
Meanwhile, Troi has some issues of her own. Though she knows that her mother, Lwaxana, recently remarried to the Tavnian named Jeyal, she was unaware of the subsequent pregnancy – and now Lwaxana's about to give birth. To make matters worse, the Tevnian government has decided that, even though Lwaxana and Jeyal have since divorced, the child still belongs to them.
