Chapter One: A Door OpensThe Interspacial Cross-Galactic Door opened about two feet behind Constance Goodheart's chair as she leaned forward to daintily sip her soup, a chicken bisque flavored with the thick richness of the Jovian Emir plant. The Door opened with a faint sucking sound, as if Constance had made a rude noise with her soup, which she never would have done.

Both Captain Proton and Constance had been looking forward to the evening and the wonderful food always served by Chef Henry of Tranquillity.Now it was ruined!"Move!"

From Our Editors
The holodeck adventures of Captain Proton are brought to life in this illustrated homage to sci-fi pulp magazines. Dean Wesley Smith recreates the style of 1940s noir brilliantly in Star Trek: Voyager, Captain Proton! It is a space-age melodrama involving the Queen of the Fems Fatale and the Captain's faithful secretary in a bewildering kidnapping. It also includes short stories featuring Constance and ace reporter Buster Kincaid. The thrilling pace and story will even appeal to readers who don't do that thing with their fingers.
