Plagues of Night is a novel by David R. George III, forming part of the Star Trek: Typhon Pact series and the first in a two-novel sequence.

The novel was announced by George on 9 March 2011, [1] with the details of the series revealed at the Shore Leave Convention on 10 July 2011, and the working titles on 15 July 2011. [2]

Official Pocket documentation - including the author's contract and sales catalog entries - carried a placeholder title of At the Prophet's Door, and listed it as a Pocket TNG novel, later under the umbrella title Chain of Destiny; however, George confirmed that these were internal designations for the purpose of labeling, and not indicative of the final novel. [3] [4]

Summary

Solicitation blurb
The first novel in a two-part Typhon Pact adventure set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation!
In the wake of the final Borg invasion, which destroyed entire worlds, cost the lives of sixty-three billion people, and struck a crippling blow to Starfleet, six nations adversarial to the United Federation of Planets – the Romulan Star Empire, the Breen Confederacy, the Tholian Assembly, the Gorn Hegemony, the Tzenkethi Coalition, and the Holy Order of the Kinshaya – joined ranks to form the Typhon Pact.
For almost three years, the Federation and the Klingon Empire, allied under the Khitomer Accords, have contended with the nascent coalition on a predominantly cold-war footing. But as Starfleet rebuilds itself, factions within the Typhon Pact grow restive, concerned about their own inability to develop a quantum slipstream drive to match that of the Federation. Will leaders such as UFP President Bacco and RSE Praetor Kamemor bring about a lasting peace across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants, or will the cold war between the two alliances deepen, and perhaps even lead to an all-out shooting war?
