The Dragon’s Claw has fastened its sharp talons into the heart of the Galaxy, and the men and women of the young Star Trek Generation are on their greatest quest: to liberate Earth from slavery…to free their family, their friends and their lovers from the captivity of a cruel Master…and to experience the romantic passions of first love. Daniel Surak Marcus, son of David Marcus and Saavik, is seventeen and a Cadet at the Academy when he encounters Natasha Chekov, an exquisite young girl who was betrothed to him when they were both thirteen, according to Vulcan custom. But their passionate love is threatened by Mantro, the powerful and sensual Cyrthian warrior, whose lust for Galactic domination is exceeded only by his desire to possess Natasha.
Daniel is joined in his struggle to save his beloved and to liberate Earth by his friends at the Academy, Rashid Kengi, a brilliant twenty-year-old medical student and interplanetary Don Juan; Kim Sulu, who at age fourteen combines martial arts expertise with a fondness for computers, and Rashid’s lovely twin sister, Malaika, who is training as an officer in Star Fleet.
Together, they must face the power of the Dragon’s Claw. While James Kirk, Spock, and the Enterprise Crew carry on the conflict in outer space, the young cadets find allies in their battle for Earth: two Aliens from another Galaxy, a beautiful warrior woman, and a lost desert tribe whose prophecies may hold the answer to the ultimate confrontation between good and evil. For mature readers eighteen and over.
