A long-dead feud is restarted via a Gateway and the bloody war that ensues threats to destabilise a once-quiet region of space. Trapped in the middle of the violent conflict are the Star Ships Excalibur and Trident...

Cold Wars is a meaty volume - over 350 closely-typed pages. Fortunately, the book justifies its wordage, partly because the author lets us learn about events in a natural and engrossing way. However, the majority of the characters seem to have been cut from some rather stiff Star Fleet cloth which stifles, rather than hightens, some of the dramatic plot points. Not that I want Nelix along for the ride, but a more fallible group of players would have made for a more engrossing read.

But overall Cold Wars is a solid yarn and the device used for the chapter headings is quite a nice idea, albeit pointless.
