Like a lethal bacillus coursing through the bloodstream of the galaxy, a fiendish master plan has spread death and terror across the 24th century—until two heroic captains risk everything to stamp out the evil at its source!

For more than a decade, since the very beginning of the Starship Enterprise‘s mission, unknown armies have unleashed a string of deadly biological weapons throughout the Alpha Quadrant, inflicting ghastly epidemics upon the Romulans, the Cardassians, the Bajorans, and even the Federation. Now, at long last, Captain Jean-Luc Picard joins forces with Captain Mackenzie Calhoun of the Starship Excalibur to track down and confront the hidden architects of the plagues—and avenge the deaths of thousands!

Captain Calhoun’s smile went wolfish. His fist whipped around with no hesitation, and caught Jellico squarely in the side of the head. Jellico went down amidst gasps from everyone surrouding him.

“Get out of here!” Jellico said, rubbing his head. His eyes weren’t focused on anything; Thul could practically hear Jellico’s head ringing right from where he was standing. As Calhoun turned and walked out of the door, Jellico shouted, “I’ll have your rank for this, Calhoun! Do you hear me? You are gone! You are finished! Do you hear? Finished!”
