Summary Edit

From the book jacket
October 5, 2140. After a half-dozen years of research and testing, Starfleet prepares to launch its first warp 5 vesselDaedalus. Propelled by a radical new engine designed by Earth's most brilliant warp field theorist, Victor Brodesser, the new ship will at last put the stars within mankind's reach.
But on the eve of her maiden voyage, a maintenance engineer, Ensign Charles Tucker III – "Trip" to his friends – discovers a flaw in Daedalus's design. When he confronts Brodesser, the scientist – as charismatic as he is brilliant – eases Trip's concerns. The ship launches on schedule, and as Trip watches in horror, it explodes in a catastrophic ion cascade reaction, killing all aboard.
Thirteen years pass. Still haunted by memories of that disaster, Trip now serves as chief engineer aboard Enterprise. When a freak accident cripples his vessel, leaving her helpless before a surprise attack, Trip is forced to abandon ship – and his shipmates. As he is on the verge of mounting a desperate rescue attempt, however, a shocking turn of events forces him to confront the ghosts of Daedalus one final time.
