Excerpt from Star Trek: Invincible Book One by David Mack
First officer's log, Commander Sonya Gomez, U.S.S. da Vinci, Stardate 53270.2
I'm leaving the da Vinci.
Luckily, it's only a temporary assignment, to the planet Sarindar. Captain Scott gave me the assignment after we dropped the old Defiant off at Spacedock.
Sarindar's located in a fairly remote region -- it'll take a week just to get out there from Earth -- but it's in an area of space controlled by the Nalori. That area is pretty much all that stands between the Federation and exploration of Sector 969. I remember when I was on the Enterprise, Command had considered having us map that out, but ultimately decided against it. The Nalori would not permit a Starfleet vessel safe passage through their space, and going around would add several months to the journey.
I told Captain Scott that when we met in his office on Earth. He laughed. "Aye, lassie, the Nalori are a right unpleasant bunch. There was a border clash with 'em a couple hundred years ago -- that was before even my time. We gave 'em a good punch to the nose, and they went back to their space with their tails between their legs. They haven't been too keen on the Federation ever since."
"So what's changed?" I asked him.
"The usual. They need our help."
