A thrilling prequel adventure based on the acclaimed TV series Star Trek: Picard!
Rejected by Starfleet.
Denied by the Federation.
SEVEN IS A WOMAN WITH NO HOME
When ex-Borg drone Seven of Nine returns home with the crew of the Starship Voyager, she trusts Kathryn Janeway’s promise that there will be a new life for her in the Federation, and a place for her in Starfleet.
But even in the twenty-fourth century, fear and prejudice are hard to overcome. Despite having Admiral Janeway’s support, Seven’s application to Starfleet is rejected, and the Federation won’t even acknowledge her citizenship.
Humiliated and alone as her Voyager shipmates scatter to new assignments, Seven risks leaving Earth to venture alone into the galaxy, to build a life she can call her own.
Seven’s idealism leads her to join the rogue interstellar patrol known as the Fenris Rangers, to help bring a brutal warlord to justice. But this new calling pushes Seven to her limits, and it also might cost her the most precious thing in her life: her friendship with Kathryn Janeway.
