Fans waiting for David Stern‘s Star Trek: The Children of Kings can read the first chapter of the book now.
In Star Trek: The Children of Kings, Captain Christopher Pike responds to a distress call from Starbase 18. When they arrive, they find that the Starbase has been attacked and no survivors remain.
The Orions are taking advantage of Klingon-Federation tensions to rebuild their power but Pike has an opportunity to build a relationship with the Orions when he receives a distress call from an Orion vessel, if helping that vessel, in disputed territory, doesn’t lead to a war with the Klingon Empire first.
