Summary Edit

From the book jacket
The Enterprise-E arrives in unclaimed space for a rendezvous with the Starfleet science vessel Newton. Jean-Luc Picard and his crew have been ordered to assist the Newton with the final phase of its current mission – a mission that brings Picard face to face with something he never thought he would see again: the phenomenon known as the Nexus.
Less than twelve years after it left the Alpha Quadrant, the Nexus ribbon has now returned. Tasked to track and study the phenomenon as it re-entered the galaxy, the specialist science team on the Newton discovered that the orbital path of the Nexus has been radically altered by the actions of the rogue El-Aurian Tolian Soran – taking it deep into the territory of The Holy Order of the Kinshaya, one of the key members of the Typhon Pact.
Starfleet Command is unwilling to allow the Kinshaya – and by extension, the Typhon Pact – free access to what is essentially a gateway to anywhere and anywhen, as a single operative could use the Nexus to change the course of galactic history...
