(From the publisher):
An honor roll of Star Trek heroes faces the climax of an adventure that spans the galaxy!
Created by the incalculably ancient Iconians, whose transcendent technology is quantum levels beyond that of the Federation and its allies, the Gateways offer instantaneous transport across unimaginable distances. Throughout the known galaxy, from Deep Space Nine to the New Frontier, from the Delta Quadrant to the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, the sudden reactivation of the Gateways has destabilized interstellar relations between planets and cultures previously separated by countless light-years. Starfleet's finest have coped with the crisis as best they can, but circumstances have forced several valiant commanders to leap through separate Gateways into the unknown.
Captain James T. Kirk of the original Starship Enterprise
Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation
Colonel Kira Nerys of Deep Space Nine
Captain Kathryn Janeway of the U.S.S. Voyager
Captains Calhoun and Shelby of Star Trek: New Frontier
Captain Nick Keller of the U.S.S. Challenger
All of these heroes, for their own reasons, have taken the ultimate gamble: hurling themselves through a Gateway without any forewarning of what lay beyond. Each must face their own unique challenge, struggling to find a way back to the ships and homes they left behind.
And waiting behind at least one of the Gateways are the ageless Iconians themselves, the primordial architects of the mysterious portals causing chaos throughout the Milky Way galaxy.
Where did they disappear to, many long eons ago, and what do they want now? The answer lies on the other side...
"What Lay Beyond" brings the Gateways saga to a spectacular finish, in an all-star collaboration by six popular, bestselling Star Trek authors.
