From the deepest, darkest reaches of space came the greatest threat the Federation had ever faced: the BorgTM. Half organic/half mechanical, the Borg were relentless and bent on conquering and "assimilating" all intelligent life; a single Borg vessel destroyed 39 Federation starships, decimating Starfleet.

Only the courage and determination of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew prevented the Borg from striking at the heart of the Federation and Earth itself in the year 2367. Picard and the USS EnterpriseTM were able to score a stunning victory against the Borg.

But all that has changed, and the Borg are back...

Stronger and more dangerous than ever, they are ready to launch a new attack against the Federation, one that threatens its past...present...and future. Once again, Captain Picard, Commander Riker, Lieutenant Commander Data and the rest of the crew must face their greatest foe in a startling confrontation that will take them across time and put them face-to-face with their relentless enemy, revealing the Borg Collective's deadliest secret...and its true face.

It is amazing tale of how two very different scientific phenomenon come together to produce the story of Genesis Force. The first is the Genesis Force itself, which we first saw in the Original Star Trek Series, and anyone who follows the Trek series know this creates life from nothing. When it hits planet after planet where there is life, it destroys. Who unleashed this terrible force? The Federation is looking into putting a stop to the Genesis Force doing any more damage while the Klingons go to the planet to try to help. In attempting to do so, they come up against a race whose scientific community wants to change the way their planet is ruled. So along with trying to reestablish life on the planet, they are up against a governmental overthrow. The characters are very colorful from the ruling family to the Klingons and right down to the young scoundrel that ends up being the ruler of the new world as the story comes to an end. It tells of the murder of the ruler and the creatures created by the Genesis Force as well as the atmospheric conditions that must be fought in order to regain control of the planet and make it habitable again. There is even time in the book for a bit of a love interest between Geordi and Lea Brahms who we have seen in earlier stories of Star Trek. In the final attempt by the scientific community to create the same wonderful place they had before Genesis Force, they unleash a new force into the atmosphere on their devastated planet. The result is anything but what they wanted to create. Tim Russ is the reader of this audio book. He reads the story with the fervor that only a person who has actually been a part of the Star Trek Series could give the book. He is able to inflect the words almost as perfectly as the character that played the original role. This is a must have for any Star Trek fan.
