The USS Enterprise is divided and under attack!

SummaryEdit

From the book jacket
While its own saucer section receives needed repairs, the USS Enterprise-D tests a new experimental saucer. In theory, the new saucer can survive a planetary crash landing, but will it come through intact under genuine test conditions? Riker, Data, Worf, and La Forge risk their lives to find out, and so does Admiral Nechayev of Starfleet.
But a dangerous test turns even more deadly when hostile forces seize control of the saucer — and turn it against the Enterprise.

After the saucer section is disabled during an encounter with a suspicious Pakled freighter, the weary Enterprise-D crew takes an opportunity for shore leave. Before Picard get a chance to relax, however, Admiral Nechayev shows up with an experimental saucer that's supposedly able to take-off and re-enter orbit after a crash landing. Nechayev orders Picard, along with a skeleton crew, to test this capability in a battle simulation. Little do they know that the Maquis in fact have their own plans for the new saucer.
