From the back cover:

200 YEARS AGO: The expanding Klingon Empire found a frozen world rich in deposits of the mineral topaline. They named the planet taD -- Klingon for "frozen" -- and they called the people jeghpu'wI' -- conquered.

FOUR YEARS AGO: The Klingon Empire invaded Cardassia, breaching the Khitomer Accords and causing a break with the Federation. On taD, depleted Klingon forces were overthrown in a small coup d'état, and the victorious rebels took advantage of the disruption to appeal for recognition from the Federation.

NOW: The Klingons have returned to taD and re-established their control. But the stubborn rebels insist on Federation recognition. A solution to the diplomatic impasse must be found, a task that falls to the Federation's new ambassador to the Klingon Empire -- Worf.

Worf thinks of himself as a fighter, not a negotiator, but the Federation disagrees. Now, for the sake of the Federation and the Empire, a Klingon warrior must weave a fragile peace out of a situation ripe for war!

real-world perspective.

"Diplomatic Implausibility" is the tenth episode of the second season of Star Trek: Daedalus.



Following on from the events of "The Daedalus Incident", the USS Daedalus and the USS Adula have been captured by the Romulans and have been accused of espionage against the Star Empire. Separated from his ship and crew, Captain Mackenzie is forced to stand-by helplessly as his people face summary execution for their "crimes".

Undeterred, the ever resourceful Mackenzie manages to secure the support of two Starfleet legends as well as the combined crews of the USS Africa and USS Zimmerman. But will it be enough?
