Even in the 24th century, three is definitely a crowd.
Imzadi: to the people of the planet Betazed, including Counselor Deanna Troi of the Starship Enterprise, it means "beloved" and denotes a special closeness that can never be truly broken. Or can it?
In his acclaimed earlier novel, Imzadi, bestselling author Peter David explored the special bond between Deanna Troi and Commander William T. Riker. It revealed of their long and intimate relationship and put that bond to it's ultimate test in a powerful and unforgettable stort that remains one of the most popular Star Trek adventures ever published. Imzadi was a New York Times bestseller in both hardcover and paperback.
Now David explores the heart of Deanna Troi from an altogether different perspective, as he reveals for the first time the full story of Troi's troubled romance with Lieutenant Commander Worf.
At first glimpse, they cannot be more different. She is an empath, gentle and acutely sensitive to the needs and feelings of others. He is a fierce Klingon warrior, dedicated to a harsh and warlike code of honor. Brought together, however, for a common need to care for Alexander, Worf's troubled, motherless son, they discover hidden reserves of courage and compassion within each other.
Soon, mutual respect leads to much stronger emotions as they embark on an unexpected courtship, much to the suprise and discomfort of William Riker.
But does Worf's future truly lie with Deanna... or on a distant outpost called Deep Space 9? And whom indeed shall Troi ultimately call "imzadi"?
