The battle to drive off the Archein Empire has met with success – and a heavy price. The Odyssey is missing in action and feared lost. Now, as Starfleet searches for survivors of the latest battle alongside the Romulans, they discover something the Archeins left behind.
When Lt. S’Ceris recieves a call for help from his Romulan contacts, Captain Daniel Hunter of the USS Intrepid enlists the help of an old friend to lend a hand. But when the mission goes sour, it becomes a race against time for Captain Shelby to save her friends and destroy the last Archein stronghold in Romulan space.
