THE MACHINE AGE

After the apparent death of James T. Kirk on the "U.S.S. Enterpris" NCC-1701-B, Montgomery Scott decides to leave Starfleet. A chance encounter with a mysterious woman named Guinan leads him to hitch a ride on the "U.S.S. Jenolen" — which crashes into a Dyson Sphere, leaving only Scotty to survive suspended as a transporter pattern....

Seventy-five years later, he is revived aboard the "Enterprise-"D — on which Guinan serves as bartender. But fate has not finished with either Scotty or Guinan. The engineer hatches an audacious plan to travel back in time and rescue Jim Kirk the moment before he would vanish into the nexus and bring him back to the twenty-fourth century without damaging the timeline.

Scotty's plan, however, does not go as expected. Though Kirk is rescued, the famed captain and the engineer, as well as Captain Picard, Guinan, and the crew of the "Enterprise-"D, are trapped in an altered past where there is no Federation, and no human race. Sarek of Vulcan leads a ragtag collection of species fighting a losing battle against the Borg, who have swarmed into the Alpha Quadrant and assimilated Earth.

Starfleet's finest miracle worker must find a way to restore the timeline before the galaxy is overrun....

Synopsis:

Montgomery Scott, who has been propelled to the 24th century, plans to go back to his own time to save the life of James T. Kirk. But his attempt puts the crew of the "Enterprise-D" in a 23rd century with no Federation and a humanity that's been assimilated by the Borg. Original.
