The Enterprise-B Chronicles, Book 1
by David Dietz
The first mission of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-B does not go as planned. But this is not the Enterprise you're thinking of. Set in a Starfleet where the ship goes to another commander and that fateful day at the Nexus never happened, we join the crew under Captain Jack Bairnson, late XO of the Excelsior under Capt Sulu.
Bairnson is having a tough time bringing together his new crew, and a ghost from the recent past haunts him as he and the crew exchange blows with the ruthless terrorist, Devorax, a cunning player who will stop at nothing to achieve his goals, including political assassinations and the destruction of Starfleet's newest flagship!
