An all-new novel in the acclaimed Star Trek: Vanguard spin-off series!
Initially charted by Starfleet probes dispatched to sur#65533;vey the Taurus Reach, the planet Cantrel V now plays host to a budding Federation colony as well as a com#65533;bined civilian/Starfleet exploration team. Ancient ruins of an unknown civilization scattered around the planet have raised the curiosity of archaeologists, anthropolo#65533;gists, historians, and other interested members of the Federation scientific community. Together, they are attempting to shed light on the beings that once called this world home.
After a large, unidentified vessel arrives in orbit and launches a seemingly unprovoked orbital bombardment, the U.S.S. Endeavour responds to the colony's distress call. As they attempt to render assistance and investi#65533;gate the mysterious ship, Captain Atish Khatami and her crew begin to unlock the astonishing secrets the planet has harbored for centuries. Does the survival of a newly discovered yet endangered alien race pose a threat not only to Cantrel V, but to other inhabited worlds throughout the Taurus Reach and beyond?
