A well-conceived plot highlights this "Star Trek - the Next Generation" novel which covers two ages: ancient Klingon, where the first emperor Kahless is forging his first conquests, and present time, where a clone of the ancient emperor has called upon Picard and Worf as the only people he can trust to help thwart a plot to tear the Klingon Empire apart.

Friedman is prolific, but, like many other writers in this genre, he leaves me a little disappointed. (Not disappointed enough to stop buying what he writes just because his name is on it ...) ( )

Book description
    KAHLESS TURNED TO PICARD AND WORF. "THERE IS TREACHERY AFOOT," HE SNARLED.

"Treachery which will tear apart the Klingon Empire if left to run its course."
"From what quarter?" Picard inquired.
"The Klingon Defense Force is undertaking a military coup deigned to unseat Gowron and the rest of the council." The emperor grunted. "i know because I overheard two of the conspirators whispering in a dining hall in Tolar'tu, during the festival of Maru'tek."
Picard looked at him skeptically. "But the leaders of the Defense Force were handpicked by Gowron. they have sworn to defend him with their very lives."
Kahless's eyes blazed. "That," he told the human, his voice thick with revulsion, "is why they call it treachery."
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671008870, Mass Market Paperback)

For 1500 years, the Klingons have revered him as their first
emperor, the legendary warrior who united their people and taught
them the meaning of honor, but the truth of his incredible life
has been shrouded in myth and fables... until now.

A clone of the original Kahless now reigns as emperor, but the
discovery of an ancient scroll throws the legends into doubt and
threatens to tear the Klingon empire apart. Surrounded by
treachery and rumors of revolt, this new Kahless can trust no one
- except Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Worf of the
"U.S.S. Enterprise."
