Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Introduction (blurb)

(From the back cover): She seized power in a heartbeat, daring to place herself against all the overlords of the Empire. Empress Hoshi Sato knows the future that could be; now all she has to do is make sure it never happens. For her to rule, she must hold sway not only over the starship from the future but also over her warlords, the resistance, and her Andorian husband. As quickly and brutally as Hoshi seized power, imperial rule is taken from her. Her only chance to rule again is to ally herself with a lifelong foe, and an alien.


Continues on from the events in ENT:"In a Mirror, Darkly". Empress Sato I takes control of the Terran Empire.
