Star Trek: New Frontier: Stone and Anvil

  • customer reviews
Fans of Peter David's bestselling New Frontier saga have been eagerly awaiting a new adventure featuring Captain Mackenzie Calhoun, Captain Elizabeth Shelby, and the crews of the Starships Excalibur and Trident. Now at last, Calhoun and Shelby return in an exciting page-turner that explores the past of both captains -- while simultaneously confronting them with a perilous dilemma in the present.
A crewman has been murdered aboard the U.S.S. Trident, and all evidence points to Ensign Janos of the Excalibur. Calhoun is reluctant to accept that Janos, a powerful non-humanoid whom the captain has known and trusted for years, could be a killer and immediately launches an investigation into the crime. But this troubling murder mystery soon escalates into a full-þedged diplomatic crisis that threatens to pit Calhoun and Shelby against the entire United Federation of Planets -- and the Starship Enterprise™.
Meanwhile, the turmoil involving Ensign Janos forces Calhoun to recall his own tempestuous past, his rocky relationship with a young Elizabeth Shelby, and a long-ago exploit that may have everything to do with the deadly emergency that now confronts them all!
Stone and Anvil is exactly the kind of compelling and original Star Trek adventure that Peter David's thousands of fans have come to expect from The New Frontier.

"Feeling very bewildered and, I think, rather embarrassed," Calhoun told her. "And the effects of the ambrosia are wearing off the rest of the Danteri as well. They've already been imploring Si Cwan to come back and take another stab at beginning a new Thallonian empire."

"Let me guess," said Shelby. "He... see more
