Restoration reveals the rise of the Empress Sato. She seized power in a heartbeat, daring to place herself against all the overlords of the Empire. Empress Hoshi Sato knows the future that could be; now all she has to do is make sure it never happens. For her to rule, she must hold sway not only over the starship from the future but also over her warlords, the resistance, and her Andorian husband. As quickly and brutally as Hoshi seized power, imperial rule is taken from her. Her only chance to rule again is to ally herself with a lifelong foe, and an alien.
The Sorrows of the Empire shows that one man can indeed change the future. Spock, intrigued by the vision of another universe's Federation, does what no Vulcan, no emperor, has ever done: taking control of the Terran Empire in one blinding stroke of mass murder. Is this a form of Vulcan madness, or is it the coolly logical plan of a man who knows the price his universe must pay for its freedom?<
In The Worst of All Worlds, after a hundred years of domination by the Cardassians and the Klingons, humans struggle to survive. A man known as Jean-Luc Picard agrees to take an elderly doddering scientist, Noonien Soong, to a planet where he's heard there is a human machine hybrid. In one instant he unlocks a horror beyond the tyranny of the Alliance. Can a man so beaten down by a lifetime of oppression stop the destruction?
