A spy for the Typhon Pact -- a new political
rival of the Federation -- has stolen the plans for Starfleet's latest
technological advance: the slipstream drive. To stop the Typhon Pact
from unlocking its secrets Starfleet Intelligence recruits a pair of
genetically enhanced agents: Dr Julian Bashir, of station Deep Space 9,
and Sarina Douglas, a woman whose talents Bashir helped to develop --
and for whom he has long harboured passionate feelings.
Bashir and Douglas must infiltrate a world controlled by the mysterious
species known as the Breen, find the hidden slipstream project, and
destroy it. Meanwhile, light-years away, Captain Ezri Dax and her crew
on the USS Aventine play a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a
Typhon Pact fleet that stands between them and the safe retrieval of
Bashir and Douglas from hostile territory...
