Introduction (blurb)[edit | edit source]

The USS da Vinci is sent to the planet Vemlar to aid in the construction of a new research-and-development facility, run by an interstellar business tycoon named Rod Portlyn. But there is more to Portlyn's business dealings than meet the eye, as a group called Taru Bolivar is trying to sabotage the Vemlar project.

Soon the combined crews of the da Vinci and the Starship Enterprise find themselves embroiled in a conflict that may lead to disaster!
