Collateral Damage is a 2019 Star Trek: The Next Generation novel by author David Mack.

DescriptionEdit

From the New York Times bestselling author of Star Trek: Discovery: Desperate Hours comes an original, thrilling novel set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation!
The past returns to haunt Captain Jean-Luc Picard: A crime he thought long buried has been exposed, and he must return to Earth to answer for his role in a conspiracy that some call treason.
Meanwhile, the USS Enterprise is sent to apprehend pirates who have stolen vital technology from a fragile scientific colony. But acting captain Commander Worf discovers that the pirates' motives are not what they seem, and that sometimes standing for justice means defying the law

SummaryEdit

Jean-Luc Picard has been summoned back to Earth for a preliminary enquiry to see if he should stand trial for his role in deposing President Min Zife. Phillipa Louvois takes charge of the prosecution and turns it into a virtual witch hunt.

Thadiun Okona is selling a Husnock super-weapon to the Orion Syndicate when they are attacked by Nausicaan raiders, who steal the weapon. The USS Enterprise-E, under Worf's command, takes Okona into custody but are ordered to release him by Starfleet Intelligence: Okona is working for them and the sale was part of an operation. SI ends up sabotaging the Enterprise's investigation but Worf is determined to go ahead.

The Nausicaans steal a power generator from the independent scientific research station, Stonekettle Station, on Skarda. This means the station's shield has failed and it will be melted by the sunlight when the day cycle begins. Geordi La Forge leads a team who establish a temporary shield to protect a small part of the station while the generator is recovered.

The Enterprise follows the Nausicaans back to their homeworld: It was devastated during the Borg Invasion of 2381, with the Federation failing to answer their distress calls or offer help afterwards. They are attempting to use the generator to repair the ecological damage. After a brief battle, the Nausicaans retreat to Skarda and tie the Husnock weapon into its systems, creating a planet-destroying weapon that they aim at Earth.

Okona is ordered to destroy the Husnock weapon, which will kill everyone on Skarda, but he is stopped by Aneta Šmrhová. Worf negotiates with the Nausicaan leader Kinogar, arranging for the Nausicaans to settle an autonomous colony on Kremlat, a planet the Klingons have claimed but never used. The weapon is returned to Starfleet Intelligence.

Leonard James Akaar and William T. Riker arrange for former Section 31 director L'Haan to testify at the hearing, with video evidence, that Picard knew nothing of Zife's secret execution and played no part in him being forced out of office. The charges are cleared and Picard returns to the Enterprise.
