We all knew this day was coming: Silent Weapons, the second book in my new Star Trek: The Next Generation 25th-anniversary trilogy Cold Equations, officially releases today on shelves physical and virtual throughout North America. It is available as a mass-market paperback and an eBook (in various formats) from most of the major book retailers.
Here is the novel’s back-cover blurb:
A WAR OF LIES
Three years after the disastrous final Borg Invasion, a bitter cold war against the Typhon Pact has pushed Starfleet’s resources to the breaking point. Now the rise of a dangerous new technology threatens to destroy the Federation from within.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew answer a distress call from an old friend, only to become targets in a deadly game of deception. To protect a vital diplomatic mission, they must find a way to identify the spies hiding in their midst, before it’s too late.
But Worf soon realizes the crew’s every move has been predicted: Someone is using them as pawns. And the closer they get to exposing their enemy, the deeper they spiral into its trap….
