Introduction (blurb)

Humanity is a pitiful collection of enslaved, indentured, and abused peoples. No one dares to question the order, except at peril of their lives. One man survives by blinding himself to the misery around him. However, Jean-Luc Picard resists, just once. And in that one instant he unlocks a horror beyond the tyranny of the Alliance. Can a man so beaten down by a lifetime of oppression stop the destruction?

From The Pocket Books Spring 2007 Catalogue: In The Worst of Both Worlds, after a hundred years of domination by the Klingon-Cardassian Alliance, humans struggle to survive. A man known as Jean-Luc Picard agrees to take an elderly, doddering scientist, Noonien Soong, to a planet where he's heard there is a machine-human hybrid.
