(From the publisher):
From the deepest, darkest reaches of space came the greatest threat the Federation had ever faced: the Borg. Half organic/half mechanical, the Borg are relentless and bent on conquering and "assimilating" all intelligent life. In the year 2367, a single Borg vessel destroyed 39 Federation starships, crippling Starfleet.
Only the courage of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew prevented the Borg from striking at the heart of the Federation - Earth itself. Picard and the USS Enterprise 1701-D were able to score a stunning defeat against the Borg.
But it was only temporary, and now the Borg are back...
Stronger and more dangerous than ever, they are ready to launch a new attack against the Federation, one that threatens its past... its present... and its future! Once again, Captain Picard, Commander Riker, Lieutenant Commander Data and the rest of the crew must face their greatest enemy in a startling confrontation that will take them across time, revealing the Borg Collective's deadliest secret... and its true face.
