Memory Beta, non-canon Star Trek Wiki

Cold Fusion is the sixth installment in the Star Trek: Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, written by Keith R.A. DeCandido and published in July 2001. In 2002 it was reprinted in the paperback omnibus Miracle Workers.

Publisher's description

Following the catastrophic conclusion of Avatar, Lieutenant Nog -- the chief operations officer of space station Deep Space 9 -- joins forces with the crew of the USS da Vinci!
With the station's future in doubt, Nog meets the da Vinci at Empok Nor, Deep Space 9's long-abandoned twin, in order to salvage vital technology. But they arrive to find that someone has beaten them to it -- an enigmatic and dangerous alien race known as the Androssi. When the SCE crew learns what the Androssi have planned for Empok Nor, it threatens not only the lives of the da Vinci and Deep Space 9 crews, but galactic peace itself!
