Captain Sisko must protect a planet from total destruction! – Bajor is threatened by a group of hostile aliens.

Summary Edit

From the book jacket
The Hive came from another galaxy: billions of alien beings living inside a vast, biological starship. They've already destroyed one planet, using it as raw material and fuel for their endless voyage through the cosmos, and now the Hive is heading for Bajor. To the Bajorans they've sent a warning, to evacuate the planet or die along with it. Determined to fight, the Bajorans assemble a battle fleet, but it's hopeless against the overwhelming power of the Hive, and only by penetrating the Hive's defenses to learn its guarded secret does Captain Sisko stand a chance of saving Bajor.

Background informationEdit

  • According to John Peel in his interview for Voyages of Imagination, the Hive was originally going to be the Borg, but Simon & Schuster didn't want to use the Borg in case Paramount wanted to use them in an episode of the show (something that never occurred).
  • Also in Voyages of Imagination John Peel mentioned that Chapter 1 was originally not included in the story, but was written up after his wife found that the book didn't open with enough action.
