From New York Times best-selling author Sam Maggs (Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars and Marvel Action: Captain Marvel) comes a new ongoing series unveiling the past of one of Starfleet''s most celebrated officers: Captain Jean-Luc Picard! Before becoming the Federation''s finest, Jean-Luc was an ordinary student at Starfleet Academy with sights on the stars. His path forward was charted: blow his classmates out of the water on the infamous Evasive Maneuvers exam and graduate early. But there''s a detail Cadet Picard hadn''t factored into his plan: the exam was a group project and he''d need to make friends with, ugh, people if he stood a chance at passing. Federation starships aren''t run by a party of one, after all.
