Summary Edit

From the book jacket
When sensors indicate a possible wormhole nearby, Captain Janeway is eager to investigate – hoping to find a shortcut back to the Federation. Instead, she finds a solar system being systematically pillaged by the warlike Akerians.
The last thing Janeway wants is to get caught up in someone else's war, but to check out the wormhole – and to protect the innocent inhabitants of Veruna Four – she has no choice but to take on the Akerians.
But who knows what dangers lurk beneath the crimson glow of the murdered sun?
