Star Trek: Destiny: Gods of Night, by David Mack, is the first in an all new trilogy.
Gods of Night follows four captains and their crew: Jean-Luc Picard of the USS Enterprise, William Riker of the USS Titan, Ezri Dax of the USS Aventine, and Erika Hernandez of the Columbia NX-02. In the year 2381, the Borg have waged war on the Federation. And this time, their goal is not assimilation but annihilation. Meanwhile, the USS Aventine is investigating a centuries-old mystery – the Columbia NX-02 went missing in 2156 and has been discovered, seemingly abandoned on a remote, uninhabited world.
With Shandrazel now dead, his son has become king and is determined to bring about the end of kings and establish a commonwealth. But not all of the dragons and humans agree with his method of peace. Hatred and vengeance runs deep. And when the villainous Blasphet escapes from prison, he contributes to the dissention and chaos in the land.
