The back of each book in the series summarises thusly: On the cusp of their epic battle with Shinzon, many of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's long-time crew were heading for new assignments and new challenges. Among the changes were William Riker's promotion to captain and his new command, Riker's marriage to Counselor Deanna Troi, and Dr. Beverly Crusher's new career at Starfleet Medical. But the story of what set them on a path away from the Starship Enterprise has never been told. Until now.
The series consists of four duologies each telling a standalone story, while the entire series continues the story arcs of the Enterprise crew, concluding with one final novel. The series as a whole leads into the film Star Trek Nemesis, and sets the stage for the continuing stories after the film in Articles of the Federation, the Titan series and the continuing TNG series.
