The Fall, the new Star Trek miniseries from Simon & Schuster/Pocket Books, will continue in late September with the release of The Crimson Shadow. Here’s a synopsis of installment number two in The Next Generation/Deep Space Nine crossover, direct from Simon & Schuster:

"To celebrate this alliance, the Castellan of the Cardassian Union is to welcome the Federation president to Cardassia Prime. As a symbol of this deepening friendship, the U.S.S. Enterprise-E is tasked to carry the Cardassian ambassador to the Federation back home. For his part, Ambassador Elim Garak is working with Captain Jean-Luc Picard to oversee the diplomatic reception that will commemorate the last of Starfleet’s personnel finally leaving the homeworld. However, there are malevolent forces at work, who even now strive to “restore Cardassia to its proper place and glory,” and are willing to do anything to achieve their goal..."
