The conclusion of the trilogy beginning with Spectre and Dark Victory.


From the book jacket
The deadly and tyrannical Emperor Tiberius rose to great power in the Mirror Universe, but his failed attempt to seize the tantalizing advances of the ancient First Federation has always rankled him. In the more peaceful universe of the United Federation of Planets, Tiberius sees his second chance. And he has chosen a new ally to help him take it -- the counterpart for whom he has nothing but contempt, the man whose U.S.S. Enterprise made first contact with the First Federation: Starfleet Captain James T. Kirk.
Honorable, idealistic, and decent, James T. Kirk is many things Tiberius is not. But he is also a man deeply in love with his wife -- and Teilani is dying. To save her life, Kirk will compromise his ideals and enter into his most dangerous alliance yet.
At the heart of their quest, however, something else awaits: an object placed there for Kirk's eyes only by the mysterious aliens who appear to have influenced life within the galaxy over eons of time. A message from the Preservers...

Memorable quotesEdit

"Kirk watched Tiberius' reflection as if in a dark mirror."

- the authors at the beginning of chapter 8, in an apparent tip of the hat to fellow Trek author Diane Duane.
