Six months after ensuring the strategically valuable planet Begemot became a member of the United Federation of Planets, the Enterprise and her crew are drawn in to a strange plot involving stolen Federation technology and a rebellion on the this vital listening post on the Tholian border.

Who or what has engaged Ferengi traders to acquire and steal secrete Federation technology to aid the rebels on Begemot, and how do their activities tie in with the enigmatic T’Rya, a once Vulcan who gave up everything to help the people of Begemot win their freedom?

Once again Picard and his crew face a moral crisis where their orders conflict with the oath they took as officers of the Federation. Will the Enterprise follow orders and squash a rebellion, or stand against Starfleet, one ship against many, to protect people fighting for their freedom?

Author’s Note:

This book was never meant to be written. The prequel, The Queen of Begemot, was meant as a stand-alone story of TNG fan fiction. But T’Rya would not leave me alone. Could I really leave such a captivating Vulcan, such a capitulating person in a dank jail cell? She kept tapping me on the shoulder, day after day, giving me the shoulder shrug emoji, until I gave in and let her finish her story.

Best part? Miranda class star ship!
