I did enjoy this book, reading it in one sitting and cursing the cliff hanger ending!
I liked that it was from Trip's perspective (though not written first person, I should add) and it was intersting to find the vast majority of the action takes place away from Enterprise, but I'm not sure the portrayal of Trip's personality stood up so well away from familiar settings. He never seemed as worried about his friend's fate as I would imagine. And my one major complaint is that Ensign Hoshi Sato has lost her surname somewhere! I always question a book that can't get a major character's name correct.
Still Trip's back story about working on the Daedalus project was intriguing and the plot has a few twists that I honestly didn't see coming.
I will definately be buying the sequel.

I really had to make myself put the book down of an evening. I thought it had a great storyline, involving a little of Trips past from 14 years ago, a little hint of romance and several cunning plot twists to keep the tension and action running high.
The book is written from Trips point of view throughout. I thought this was an interesting way of doing it, and definitely a new style for Trek books, as far as I can recall.
The one minor drawback to the book is that it ends on a huge cliffhanger and we don't get the resolution until 1st May! But that's only a drawback if you're impatient like me.

The Enterprise books up to this point in the series haven't been particularly groundbreaking, and this book is no exception.

Trip is a very large part of the story... Trip IS the story. Having said this though, I felt like Dave Stern doesn't really know how the character works. It could be any character delivering his speech. And the majority of the main characters are absent for a good 300 pages of the book. The introduction of so many supporting characters was a trick used in By The Book, as the series had only just started and the authors didn't really have a feel for the characters, and it directly affected how I enjoyed that book. This was written after the show had been on for 2 years, and yet still, we're greeted with practically all new characters, except for Trip and Hoshi. Hoshi herself seems to have lost her surname again, which is pretty poor research on the author's part.

Another mention in the "poor research" category goes to the fact that Enterprise is quoted as having "photon torpedoes" towards the end of the book. This is at a point in the series before even "photonic" torpedoes had made an appearance.

Daeadalus itself is a pretty poor plot device. At first the Suliban cell-ship brings up memories of Trip's time on the Daeadalus project. These memories then disappear until the actual crew put in an appearance.

And then the major point of the story is revealed, and the book ends on a cliffhanger...

This major plot point was something that had me groaning, as it's a tired idea, and has to be properly handled... which judging by this book, I don't feel it was.

Another thing that drove me to distraction with this book is the writer's actual style.

I've had this book for several years, probably since it was published [seven years according to Amazon], but until now had not got around to reading it. I soon found out why.

The book focuses on Trip Tucker, as Enterprise and its crew are captured by an alien dictator who seemingly appears out of nowhere while they are investigating a spatial anomaly. Trip manages to evade capture only to find himself being drawn into the local war.

The style of writing is horrendous in its simplicity. I found it really hard to focus on the words and found I was only skim reading the entire novel, something I've never known to happen before. It's writing in a very casual manner, almost like a first draft where the author is just bashing out whatever comes to mind rather than caring about how it comes across.

I found the absence of the other main characters annoying. I like ensemble pieces from my star trek novels, and even Hoshi (who is misnamed throughout as Ensign Hoshi rather than Ensign Sato) who seems to be tagging along for the ride is soon conveniently written out. The romance sub-plot feels unnecessary and in there only to pad out the length, and the main plot itself is filled with thinly veiled coincidences. Its most redeeming feature is the end, which gives a nice 'ah-ha moment' and a lot of earlier things start to click into place. It almost makes up for some of the really bad science from earlier.

Overall I have to say I was disappointed. I'm not sure how I'm going to bring myself to read part two. This came over as a badly thought through and badly written implementation of what could have been a nice idea.
