Imagine Alias combined with Star Trek and you a have the idea behind for VANGUARD, a new concept for Star Trek fiction that takes it in a compelling new direction, presenting a new perspective on the classic Original Series era, with novels running parallel to Kirk's original five-year mission. VANGUARD is a Starfleet space station charged with the exploration and colonization of a region of space that holds a highly coveted, mysterious, and potentially cataclysmic secret - one that the Federation must solve before anyone else. The race is on and at the centre of this intrigue is an eclectic mix of Starfleet and civilian protagonists unlike any crew previously seen in Star Trek. Their turbulent lives aboard the station and on the ships they travel are painted against the backdrop of an evolving storyline that will gain momentum as the series progresses and the layers of ancient mystery are steadily peeled back, one after another.
