Is The Lost Years set between TOS and TMP? What is the main plot of the story?

Does The Return touch on the origin of V'Ger and how it may be connected with The Borg? How is this plotline handled? Is it good?

It's actually not a bad read. Wish they would have continued with additional stories from that era.

For the Borg and the Romulan Empire have joined forces in an unholy alliance against the United Federation of Planets, and their ultimate weapon is none other than James T. Kirk, resurrected by mysterious alien science to destroy the Borg's most formidable enemy, Jaen-Luc Picard.
It's ok and entertaining.
