This book-on-tape which seems to take place sometime during the next generation movies finds Worf in command of a small Klingon fleet resettling the colonists in wake of the Genesis wave. In this process they encounter a culture that has decided to preserve themselves in their orbital transporter network.
Tim Russ (Voyager's Tuvok) does an excellent job of portraying the full gauntlet of characters ranging from the out-of-favor scientist turned savior to the planet's genetically-perfect ruler to Worf and the Klingons.
The story brings back a few now-older characters like Worf's son Alexander and Jeremy (the kid that Worf took under his wing because he lead the away team that resulted in his mother's death). Both have ended up serving under Worf on the Klingon ship (Jeremy apparently through some sort of Federation exchange program). Unfortunately, the rest of the enterprise crew play a very minor role in the whole saga.
The story begins to pick up when the now-destroyed and supposedly lifeless planet appears to have life on it; moreover this life form seems to be able to shape-shift and nearly convinces the colonists to begin coming down in droves before the Klingons discover that the life forms are not what they appear.
The Klingons want to put everything on hold until they can figure out the mystery of the planet. In the interim, however, another mystery (which becomes Alexander's challenge) is formed when the planet's leader is killed and the heir-apparent and scientist-savior are the two leading suspects.
The colonists are not willing to wait (with the transporter systems failing and afraid of loosing lives) and begin a process that is supposed to re-terraform the planet. However, what they don't know apparently can hurt them and does.
