Summary Edit

From the book jacket
It began with the lost years, the long-awaited story of what happened to Captain Kirk and the legendary crew of the USS Enterprise when their original five-year mission ended. Now, it is more than a year later, and Kirk and his crew have settled into their new, separate assignments.
But when Sulu and Chekov find themselves framed for murder and treason, the two officers are forced to go into hiding. As Admiral Kirk and Uhura frantically search for evidence to prove Sulu and Chekov innocent, they uncover a plot that threatens the very foundations of Starfleet. The web of conspiracy is woven tighter as the real culprits and Federation agents close in on the fugitives. Unsure of whom to trust and with time running out, the former USS Enterprise shipmates must once again rely on each other to find the truth and prevent the Federation from facing utter destruction.

The ship on the cover appears to based heavily on the SR-71 Blackbird spyplane. Presumably, it depicts Sulu's experimental cloaking shuttle.
