Star Trek: Discovery: Die Standing
No one in the history of histories has lost more than Philippa Georgiou, ruler of the Terran Empire. Forced to take refuge in the Federation’s universe, she bides her time until Section 31, a rogue spy force within Starfleet, offers her a chance to work as their agent. She has no intention of serving under anyone else, of course; her only interest is escape.
But when a young Trill, Emony Dax, discovers a powerful interstellar menace, Georgiou recognizes it as a superweapon that escaped her grasp in her own universe. Escorted by a team sent by an untrusting Federation to watch over her, the emperor journeys to a region forbidden to travelers. But will what she finds there end the threat-or give “Agent Georgiou” the means to create her old empire anew?
The USS Discovery does not appear in this book.
None of the crew from the USS Discovery make any appearances here either.
I should mention that I listened to this as an audio book from Scribd, which I have no complaints about at all, I like their system and suggest it to anyone that’s able to listen to audio books. I only did this because I was talking multiple 12 hours long car trips in a week and figured I’d have time to listen to the book, but it turned out the book was much longer than the trips we took. The narrator was very professional, but I didn’t care for the voices that they used.
The story was ok, but as I complained above, there was zero connection with Discovery, so that was bitterly disappointing to me.
