Publisher Description

A thrilling untold adventure based on the acclaimed Star Trek: Picard TV series!

Starfleet was everything for Cristóbal Rios—until one horrible, inexplicable day when it all went wrong. Aimless and adrift, he grasps at a chance for a future as an independent freighter captain in an area betrayed by the Federation, the border region with the former Romulan Empire. His greatest desire: to be left alone.

But solitude isn’t in the cards for the captain of La Sirena, who falls into debt to a roving gang of hoodlums from a planet whose society is based on Prohibition-era Earth. Teamed against his will with Ledger, his conniving overseer, Rios begins an odyssey that brings him into conflict with outlaws and fortune seekers, with power brokers and relic hunters across the stars.

Exotic loves and locales await—as well as dangers galore—and Rios learns the hard way that good crewmembers are hard to find, even when you can create your own. And while his meeting with Jean-Luc Picard is years away, Rios finds himself drawing on the Starfleet legend’s experiences when he discovers a mystery that began on one of the galaxy’s most important days…

Very good read. Would love to see this turned into a ongoing series

What are the best and most entertaining novels I’ve enjoyed over the past several years. Very easy to pick up and very easy to enjoy. Nothing really life altering. But it was definitely Star Trek. I would love to see this turned into an ongoing series. Cristobal Rios is definitely a worthwhile character and I hope he gets flushed out even more. The writer definitely turned them into a very compelling character. So much so, that I hope to see more of him in the Star Trek Picard TV show itself.
