1.5 Beyond The Stars And Heaven

Beyond the Stars and Heaven is an episode shared between Star Trek: Forever and Star Trek: The Infinite.


The Void has begun to manifest itself across the galaxy, swallowing entire systems seemingly at random with Romulus and Earth its most recent victims. Decimated by the brutal war with the Rukakon Hierarchy, what little remains of the Federation is spread across a handful of planets or stowed away on one of the vast Atlas-class colony ships. Even so, the Rukakon Warleader, Ser Talvad, appears intent on their complete annihilation, sending his vast fleets in for one last crushing blow.

Unbeknownst to those outside, the Void is not the absence of matter but quite the opposite: those ships, planets and stars which fell into it have come together, sometimes violently, in a grand collision of matter. Not everything survives the transition, but those who had often fell prey to the dominant power within the Void: a telepathic race known as The Purity.

Many have entered the Void. Now a group of survivors intend to be the first to escape…


Darid Kai, a protector of existence, is sent back to the past by the Guardian of Forever, to stop Gul Vacet from altering the rightful timeline. In a race against the clock, Kai must retrieve the Amberlyth Key and stop Vacet at all cost, lest the future become a fate far worse than death …
