The Hall of Heroes is the third and final book in the Star Trek: Prey trilogy by author John Jackson Miller. It was released 29 November 2016.

Publisher's description[edit | edit source]

Continuing the milestone 50th anniversary celebration of Star Trek—an epic new trilogy that stretches from the events of The Original Series movie The Search for Spock to The Next Generation!
The Klingon Empire stands on the precipice. In the wake of violence from the cult known as the Unsung, paranoia threatens to break Chancellor Martok's regime. Klingons increasingly call for a stronger hand to take that Lord Korgh, master manipulator, is only too willing to offer.
But other forces are now in motion. Assisted by a wily agent, the Empire's enemies secretly conspire to take full advantage of the situation. Aboard the USS Titan, Admiral William T. Riker realizes far more than the Federation's alliance with the Klingons is in danger. With the Empire a wounded animal, it could either become an attacker—or a target.
Yet even as hostilities increase, Commander Worf returns to the USS Enterprise and Captain Jean-Luc Picard with a daring plan of his own. The preservation of both the Empire and the Federation alliance may hinge on an improbable savior leading a most unlikely force....

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Aventine arrives in Klingon space to a hostile reception but is soon drafted into the search for the Unsung. Meanwhile, the Enterprise is reunited with Ardra, who has been released from custody to identify Shift as an old cellmate, who escaped custody along with Odrok. Korgh, following the death of his eldest son and only grandson, places his two remaining sons in senior positions among the House of Kruge militia.

With the co-opted Blackstone crew, Shift and her Breen mentor Thot Roje head to the Kinshaya capital Janalwa where Shift pulls the same deception Jilaan played a century earlier, posing as the god of war, Niamlar, and convincing the militant leader Ykredna to use ships prepared by the Breen to launch an attack on the Klingons. Meanwhile, Worf and Kahless teach the Unsung that despite being exiles from the Empire they can still live like Klingons. They decide to surrender to the House of Kruge but instead come across the first stage of the Kinshaya attack and manage to warn Starfleet and the Klingons.

The Enterprise and Titan assist the Klingons with their defences while the Unsung end up defending Korgh's capital, killing Roje, although three of their four remaining ships are destroyed and most of their number killed. The Aventine takes Ardra, an engineering team and the Houdini to Janalwa where Ardra plays an opposing Niamlar opposite Shift's version. The Blackstone crew trip Starfleet off to their position, allowing them to disable the vehicle and expose the deception. Shift and the Breen flee (with Shift killing her Breen superior Dayn when he threatens to have her executed and taking his place), as does Ykredna, allowing the moderate Kinshaya to take control again and recall their forces.

Korgh makes one last attempt at gaining power by bombing a conference on the Federation-Klingon alliance but the attempt fails and he is exposed by Martok using the Circle's technology to pose as Odrok. Ardra and the Blackstone crew are assigned to use the Houdini to police the Circle's activities. The surviving Unsung including Valandris have their discommendation revoked and are assigned to replace the sentries they killed at Spirits' Forge. Emperor Kahless decides to stay at Spirit's Forge and instruct the former Unsung in Klingon traditions. Korgh is discommendated, although Worf convinces Martok not to pass the punishment on to his innocent family, and then arrested by Riker for crimes committed in Federation space.
