A Time To... Mini-Series

On the cusp of their epic battle with Shinzon, many of Captain Jean-Luc Picard's long-time crew were heading for new assignments and new challenges. Among the changes were William Riker's promotion to captain and his new command, Riker's marriage to Counselor Deanna Troi, and Dr. Beverly Crusher's new career at Starfleet Medical. But the story of what set them on a path away from the Starship Enterprise has never been told.

UNTIL NOW.

A Time to Be Born
Written by John Vornholt
February, 2004

The site of one of the Dominion War's fiercest battles, the Rashanar Sector now contains a vast interstellar graveyard littered with the lifeless hulks of hundreds of devastated starships. The explosive destruction of so many varied warp drives has severely distorted the space-time continuum in this region, resulting in dangerous unleashed energies and bizarre gravitational anomalies.

The Enterprise has been assigned to patrol the perimeter of the dangerous zone, while other vessels carry out the difficult and highly hazardous task of retrieving the bodies of the dead from the wrecked warships.

To some alien races, the former battleground is hallowed space. To others, including the rapacious Androssi, it is a scavenger's paradise, ripe for salvage. None expect this ship's graveyard to hold a deadly secret that will force the android Data to make a heart-wrenching decision about the path his life will take--and that will endanger not only the Enterprise, but Picard's future in Starfleet.

A Time to Die
Written by John Vornholt
March, 2004

Following the decisive events of "A Time to Be Born", Starfleet Command has unjustly assessed the actions of Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew during their fateful assignment to the Rashanar Battle Site--the sector that saw one of the fiercest conflicts of the Dominion War, and which is now a hazardous interstellar graveyard filled with hundreds of devastated starships. While the court-ordered medical evaluation that relieved Picard of command is ongoing, there is growing speculation that his illustrious career may be coming to an end.

To clear his former commander, acting captain William Riker and a demoralized skeleton crew agree to conduct a covert operation, and must venture the Starship Enterprise back into Rashanar to track down a mythical menace that may already be responsible for the annihilation of countless fully-armed starships. Unbridled hostility and the promise of death lurk at every turn, but they could never imagine that their only chance of survival may lie in the unexpected return of a long-absent friend....

A Time to Sow
Written by Dayton Ward an Kevin Dilmore
April, 2004

More than two centuries ago, the Dokaalan sent an unmanned probe into the void, bearing a distress call for anyone who could save their doomed world. But the message reached Federation space too late to save the planet or its people. Or so it was believed....

Generations later, Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the Enterprise-E are stunned to discover the last of the Dokaalan--now only a colony fighting to stay alive in a decrepit asteroid mining complex. Although their home world was destroyed long ago, the survivors hope to someday transform a nearby planet into a new home for their people. But bitter divisions exist among the Dokaalan, sowing the seeds of sabotage and terrorism--and placing Picard and the Enterprise in the middle of an escalating crisis that can only lead to total destruction!

A Time to Harvest
Written by Dayton Ward an Kevin Dilmore
May, 2004

Still reeling from the disastrous events that have rocked all of Starfleet and tarnished the career of one of the Federation's most decorated captains, Picard and his crew must now endure the unthinkable: scandal, ostracism, and an uncertain future. But despite all that has occurred, none aboard the Enterprise have forgotten their duty as Starfleet officers....

Assigned to assist the imperiled Dokaalan--a small colony of refugees who maintain a precarious existence in a rapidly disintegrating asteroid mining complex--the Enterprise crew must somehow aid this alien race in terraforming a nearby planet so that it might someday provide a new home for their kind. But violent acts of sabotage soon turn a humanitarian crisis into a deadly confrontation. To save the Dokaalan from extinction, Picard must uncover the presence of an old adversary--and prevent a disaster of catastrophic proportions!

A Time to Love
Written by Robert Greenberger
June, 2004

One hundred years ago, the recurring conflicts between the Bader and the Dorset ended mysteriously when both races colonized the distant planet Delta Sigma IV--a world located far from the destructive wars of their people--and quickly became the Federation's perfect example of interspecies cooperation. But there are now rumblings of trouble in paradise, as an investigation led by Kyle Riker--Commander William Riker's estranged father--into this harmonious society has discovered a shocking, immutable truth: over the next few generations, the reaction to a native gas will spell the extinction of Delta Sigma IV's inhabitants.

Captain Picard and his crew, still recovering from the tragic events that have tarnished the career of one of the Federation's most decorated captains, must come to the aid of a world that once knew only peace, but now faces emerging violence and chaos... and Commander Riker must confront the reality that his own father may be held responsible for Delta Sigma IV's almost certain downfall!

A Time to Hate
Written by Robert Greenberger
July, 2004

The recurring blood feuds between the Bader and the Dorset ended mysteriously a century ago when both races colonized the planet Delta Sigma IV. But, unknown until now, it was a reaction to a naturally occurring gas that led to their harmonious existence... a reaction that would eventually mean certain death for the planet's inhabitants. What the Enterprise crew believed was a cure for the population--a treatment introduced into Delta Sigma IV's environment by Kyle Riker, a man at odds with his son, Commander William Riker--has instead triggered worldwide carnage, as long-suppressed aggression and hostility are suddenly and violently unleashed.

Caught in a world on the brink of self-destruction, Captain Picard--a man still waging his own personal battle for redemption in the eyes of his commanding officers--must somehow find a way to resolve this catastrophic event and save his crew, even as the implications of his actions may ultimately doom an entire race....

A Time to Kill
Written by David Mack
August, 2004

At the height of the Dominion War and unknown to all save those in the highest levels of command, the Federation secretly armed the neutral planet Tezwa with devastating weapons--part of a contingency plan against the Dominion if the front lines collapsed. But Tezwa also lies near the border of the Klingon Empire... making the Federation's covert strategy in direct violation of their fragile peace treaties, and creating the potential threat of scandal and all-out war.

Now Tezwa's power-hungry prime minister is all too eager to flex his newfound military muscle, menacing an innocent Klingon border world. Sent on an urgent diplomatic mission, Captain Picard and the Enterprise crew are caught in the crossfire as the crisis quickly escalates. With time running out and billions of lives at stake, only one man can avert the looming disaster--Ambassador Worf, who must choose between his oath to the Federation and his loyalty to Martok, Chancellor of the Klingon Empire....

A Time to Heal
Written by David Mack
September, 2004

A cataclysmic war between the Federation and the Klingon Empire has been miraculously averted, and a new government is finally in place on the planet Tezwa. But deadly secrets still threaten the fragile peace accord.

Rebels still loyal to the old Tezwa regime have captured Commander Riker and are willing to kill to achieve their goals... the Orion Syndicate is interfering in the rebuilding--and may also be involved in much more than that. But the most devastating revelation of all threatens the very foundations of the Federation itself--leaving Captain Picard to possibly face the very conflict that he labored so hard to prevent....

October, 2004

The ninth and final novel in the series. From the author: "My finale will include the Enterprise being given an inspection tour, Riker and Troi making wedding plans, Worf struggling to keep the Federation-Klingon alliance intact, and a Federation Presidential election. Fun stuff."

The back cover text, which contains major spoilers for "A Time to Heal", follows this large gap of blank(ish) space...

Following the scandalous Tezwa affair, the Federation president's resignation forces an election with the future of the United Federation of Planets to be determined by who emerges victorious from a hotly contested vote. But it is the fate of the entire galaxy that may actually be decided on Qo'noS, as the Federation embassy is seized by terrorists whose actions expose intrigue reaching the highest levels of Klingon government--and it will take all of Ambassador Worf's skills to keep the fragile Federation-Klingon alliance from collapsing. And while this potential intergalactic chaos looms, Commander Riker finds his plans for command and marriage soured by a brutal, high-level inspection of the ship from which the crew may not escape unscathed...

The epic miniseries comes to a shocking conclusion--one that will leave the Star Trek universe changed forever!
