Publisher's description[edit | edit source]

From the back cover: They are the self-appointed protectors of the Federation. Amoral, shrouded in secrecy, answerable to no one, Section 31 is the mysterious covert operations division of Starfleet a rogue shadow group committed to safeguarding the Federation at any cost.

Six months before their ultimate battle against the Borg for the fate of Earth, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise face a very different kind of crisis. A world in turmoil becomes the focal point of conspiracies and betrayal as an unexpected reunion brings with it startling revelations. Old friends become bitter enemies, and one young officer reaches a crossroad when he's forced to choose between the greater good of the Federation and the ideals for which it stands.

No Law. No Conscience. No Stopping Them.
