The Final Nexus

The astonishing sequel to the New York Times bestseller Chain of Attack!

TOS #043 Cover

  • Stardate Unknown
  • Released December 1988

Uncounted centuries ago, an unknown race from beyond our galaxy created a series of interstellar gates—shortcuts across our universe—and then disappeared, leaving behind no clues to their fate, or the operation of their system. Twice before, the Enterprise has used the system to traverse the galaxy, and returned each time no wiser to the gates’ operation.

Now it is imperative that they find out. For the gates are breaking down, taking the very stars in the sky with them. The fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of the Enterprise crew, and their ability to communicate not only with creatures from another world—but from another universe as well.

The Devlin, shields raised, put itself directly in the Enterprise‘s path.

Damn it, Kirk!” Captain Sherbourne shouted. “I don’t want to fire on you, but I will! Believe me, I will!

“I believe you, Captain,” Kirk replied. “That’s why we have our deflectors at maximum strength.”

Spock!” Sherbourn called. “Certainly you can’t be going along with this insanity! It just isn’t logical to risk everything-

“But it is quite logical, Captain Sherbourne,” Spock said. “Based on what we have experienced – what Captain Kirk has told and shown you – it would be illogical for us to do otherwise. We are the only chance the Federation has for survival.”

The Devlin‘s helmsman spoke. “All systems locked on, Captain. Ready to fire at your command.

I’m warning you, Kirk,” Sherbourne said, shaking his head angrily. “I’m warning everyone who can hear me on the Enterprise—”

Suddenly, there was a scream from the Devlin.

“Full impulse power, now!” Spock ordered, and the Enterprise surged ahead.
