SummaryEdit

From the book jacket
The Hamlin Massacre - every Starfleet officer knows the tale. The tiny Federation outpost of Hamlin was destroyed, its entire adult population ruthlessly slaughtered, before the first defense shields could be raised.

Now, fifty years later, the Choraii ships have appeared again. But this time the Federation is ready; this time the Choraii must pay for what they need. The precious metals can only be bought with the Hamlin children still living with their captors.
This time the Choraii must face Captain Jean-Luc Picard - and the crew of the starship USS Enterprise-D™...
