Publisher's Summary

Three hundred years ago, the S.S. Valiant was destroyed during an ill-fated attempt to cross the legendary Galactic Barrier. Starfleet had always assumed that the Valiant had perished with all hands aboard, until a pair of unusual humanoids arrive at Starbase 209, claiming to be the descendants of a handful of Valiant survivors who found refuge on an M-Class planet beyond the Barrier. Even more shocking, the visitors warn that a hostile alien species, the Nuyyad, are preparing to invade our galaxy. Starfleet orders the U.S.S. Stargazer to investigate at once. Lieutenant Commander Jean-Luc Picard is second officer on the Stargazer and has yet to command a vessel of his own. He develops a special bond with one of the visitors, a strikingly beautiful woman who has inherited mysterious psychic abilities from her alleged Starfleet ancestors. But can Picard trust her? When the Stargazer is ambushed by Nuyyad warships, Picard finds himself in command - trapped on the wrong side of the Barrier, cut off from Starfleet. The Stargazer and the entire Federation may depend on the decisions Picard must make. The Valiant is a gripping saga that explores an untold chapter in the life of Jean-Luc Picard - and reveals the making of a captain!

Don't like abridged stories

One of my favourite stories but being abridged it lost to much of the narrative. I liked Anthony Stewart heads reading of the story.
