Publisher's description

From the back cover
Secret operations, sealed orders, high-risk military special operations … such dangerous missions have been at the core of the Star Trek Vanguard series since its inception.
Four great Alpha Quadrant superpowers-the Federation, the Klingon Empire, the Tholian Assembly, and the Romulan Star Empire-have all taken tremendous risks in their race to learn and control the ancient technologies of the ancient interstellar hegemons known as the Shedai.
Now get ready for four new adventures in the Taurus Reach with the starship crews, undercover agents, civilian colonists, and alien power players of the Vanguard saga. Go back into prehistory and see the reign of the Shedai as it really was; follow journalist Tim Pennington as he investigates the most bizzarre story of his career; see how the Cold War of the original Star Trek era plays out between two groups of colonists-one from the Federation, the other from the Klingon Empire-both facing a natural disaster neither is prepared to survive on its own; or get a glimpse of the lighter side of life aboard Starbase 47…
