An all-new novel based upon the explosive Star Trek TV series!

It is 2246, ten years prior to the Battle at the Binary Stars, and an aggressive contagion is ravaging the food supplies of the remote Federation colony Tarsus IV and the eight thousand people who call it home. Distress signals have been sent, but any meaningful assistance is weeks away. Lieutenant Commander Gabriel Lorca and a small team assigned to a Starfleet monitoring outpost are caught up in the escalating crisis, and bear witness as the colony’s governor, Adrian Kodos, employs an unimaginable solution in order to prevent mass starvation.

While awaiting transfer to her next assignment, Commander Philippa Georgiou is tasked with leading to Tarsus IV a small, hastily assembled group of first responders. It’s hoped this advance party can help stabilize the situation until more aid arrives, but Georgiou and her team discover that they‘re too late—Governor Kodos has already implemented his heinous strategy for extending the colony’s besieged food stores and safeguarding the community’s long-term survival.

In the midst of their rescue mission, Georgiou and Lorca must now hunt for the architect of this horrific tragedy and the man whom history will one day brand “Kodos the Executioner”….

Interesting if you don't mind being bored. I have read 11chapters and found that this book makes me want to watch paint dry.

Well narrated and strong descriptive story line told from a few perspectives. Good character development. While the writing overlapped to show perspectives it translates into a lot of repetition. At times I had to check I wasn’t listening on shuffle. Stand alone chapters could have been inserted anywhere or even removed. Rather than development of story line it felt more like deja vu. It draws a satisfactory conclusion but it could have been 8-9 hours long and at times was genuinely boring due to the repetition.
