Chakotay embarks on his first misson as captain of the USS Voyager, but a simple mission may turn deadly. (Book One of Two)

Summary Edit

From the book jacket
Captain Chakotay is ready to prove himself as the new commanding officer of the Starship Voyager – but skeptics back at Starfleet Command are watching him closely for any sign that he will revert to his renegade Maquis ways. His first mission as captain, to transport a group of colonists back to their home planet of Loran II, seems easy enough: make sure the planet is safe for colonization, unload the settlers, and head back to Earth. He even has an extra reason to enjoy the trip-his sister, Sekaya, has joined the mission as a spiritual adviser to the gentle, peace-loving colonists.
But when the crew arrives at Loran II, they discover a mysterious storm, an ominously deserted settlement – and a hidden threat from Chakotay's past that could destroy them all. Will Chakotay's first mission as captain of Voyager also be his last?
