Summary Edit

From the book jacket
In the twenty-fourth century, the USS da Vinci and its S.C.E. team led by Commander Sonya Gomez roam the galaxy, solving the technical problems of the universe in a state-of-the-art ship. But the road to the da Vinci was a difficult one, as the S.C.E. had to go through its share of growing pains back in the twenty-third century...
Even as the da Vinci spearheads a dramatic rescue of a runaway vessel, Captain Montgomery Scott recalls his younger days as the chief engineer of the USS Enterprise under Captain Kirk – and his own encounters with a much different Corps of Engineers. From the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone, to the planet Beta III in the wake of the Landru computer, to the uncharted regions of deep space, Scotty joins forces with the battered old USS Lovell to bring the S.C.E. into the future!

by Dayton Ward
Beginning an all-new trilogy that tells the origin of the S.C.E.!
The USS da Vinci answers a distress call from a ship careening out of control after going through an ion storm. While researching similar events from the past in an attempt to find a solution, Lieutenant Commander Duffy comes across a piece of history... One hundred and twelve years before the heyday of the da Vinci, Montgomery Scott took an assignment to the Romulan Neutral Zone to work alongside the crew of the USS Lovell and her staff from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. But this S.C.E. is much different from the modern version – a down-and-dirty team of technicians given the worst jobs in the fleet. When the repair of one of the Neutral Zone outposts goes horribly wrong, Scotty and the nascent S.C.E. team must work together to keep the outpost in one piece...'

by Dayton Ward
Continuing the all-new trilogy that tells the origin of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers!
While the USS da Vinci has managed to stop a ship that was careening out of control, they still have work to do: the vessel's computer has broken down, and the ship cannot function without it.
This echoes the early days of the S.C.E.:
Over a century before the days of the da Vinci, the Starship Enterprise encountered – and deactivated – a world-running computer called Landru on Beta III. In the aftermath of the incident, a team of engineers, led by Montgomery Scott, is tasked with getting Beta III back on its feet. But even in "death," Landru's influence can still be felt...
