Summary

An all-new novel based upon the explosive Star Trek TV series! 

No one in the history of histories has lost more than Philippa Georgiou, ruler of the Terran Empire. Forced to take refuge in the Federation’s universe, she bides her time until Section 31, a rogue spy force within Starfleet, offers her a chance to work as their agent. She has no intention of serving under anyone else, of course; her only interest is escape. 

But when a young Trill, Emony Dax, discovers a powerful interstellar menace, Georgiou recognizes it as a superweapon that escaped her grasp in her own universe. Escorted by a team sent by an untrusting Federation to watch over her, the emperor journeys to a region forbidden to travelers. But will what she finds there end the threat - or give “Agent Georgiou” the means to create her old empire anew?

Love Section 31

This was a great link between Season 1 and 2 of Discovery. The author captured the essence of the character(s) of Georgio masterfully. Nice touch with Finnigan from TOS. Dax was an interesting addition, however it felt more like Ezri than Emeny! Overall loved it.

Loved It!

Now that the new streaming video series are probably delayed due to COVID-19, it was fun to have something new on Star Trek. Thanks!

Good but not great.

It was just okay. The ending is better than the beginning and the middle is slow. The story's premise is also misleading. However, it does fill in some blanks about what events occurred between seasons 1 and 2 of Discovery.

Great Story Fabulous Narrator

This story really captured the essence of the Terran Georgiou. It's very well crafted and highly engaging. What makes it all the more so is the extremely talented January Lavoy! She perfectly captures the voices of the characters we know and love. She also gives the aliens unique voices. If I were the casting director, she would be narrating quite a few Star Trek novels. I can't wait to hear more of her!
