The Shape of Things to Come

The cataclysmic events of Star Trek: Destiny have devastated known space. Worlds have fallen. Lives have been destroyed. And in the uneasy weeks that follow, the survivors of the holocaust continue to be tested to the limits of their endurance.

But strange and mysterious occurrences are destabilizing the galaxy's battle-weary Allies even further. In the Federation, efforts to replenish diminished resources and give succor to millions of evacuees are thwarted at every turn. On the borders of the battered Klingon Empire, the devious Kinshaya sense weakness -- and opportunity. In Romulan space, the already-fractured empire is dangerously close to civil war.

As events undermining the quadrant's attempts to heal itself become increasingly widespread, one man begins to understand what is truly unfolding. Sonek Pran -- teacher, diplomat, and sometime adviser to the Federation President -- perceives a pattern in the seeming randomness. And as each new piece of evidence falls into place, a disturbing picture encompassing half the galaxy begins to take shape...revealing a challenge to the Federation and its allies utterly unlike anything they have faced before.

After the disaster of the borg invasion the Federation and Klingons are rebuilding but a new alliance of ancient enemies is forming.An interesting collection of short stories surrounding the rebuilding of the Federation.
Ah, the good old days when you could pick up a Star Trek novel and just read it. Of course, you had to be familiar with whichever show it belonged to (The Next Generation, Original Series, Deep Space Nine, Voyager), but other than that, you were good to go. They were basically stand alone non-canon goodness. But then, they (Pocket, et. al.) started doing massive crossovers of all the serieses. But still, if you knew all the shows it was mostly okay, and you could go with the flow and they rehashed enough in the books that you could put it together. But now... Not only do you need to know all the shows, but to truly understand the books it helps to read them in order, not just in their respective series, (whether that be the TV ones, or the new novel only ones like New Frontier, Titan, Vanguard), from all different times. Some of these story lines have never been anywhere near a TV or movie screen. Confusing. (Also, causing my To Be Read pile/list to go all to hell).Still, the book itself was awesome. It was an intricately constructed political novel about the fallout of the Destiny crisis. With information appearing in the beginning or middle of the book that applies to things that are in the end of the book. It's up there with Q-Squared in regards to how tightly its put together. Though, that one was more of an action story and this one is most definitely political in nature. Also DeCandido is quite the author, creating characters that almost always inspire some sort of feeling by the reader, whether it be positive or negative.
