Book Description

2 Mar 2009 Star Trek: Crossover
The cataclysmic events of Star Trek: Destiny have devastated known space. Worlds have fallen. Lives have been destroyed. In the uneasy weeks that follow, the survivors continue to be tested to the limits of their endurance. In the Federation, efforts to replenish diminished resources and deliver aid to millions of evacuees are thwarted at every turn, while on the borders of the battered Klingon Empire, the devious Kinshaya sense weakness -- and opportunity. In Romulan space, the already-fractured empire is on the brink of civil war. Only one man begins to understand what is happening, as incidents which threaten to undermine the quadrant's efforts to heal itself become increasingly widespread. Sonek Pran -- teacher, diplomat, and sometime advisor to the Federation President -- sees a pattern in these apparently random events. And as each new piece of evidence falls into place, a disturbing picture begins to take shape which encompasses half the galaxy -- presenting the Federation and its allies with a challenge unlike any they have faced before!

4.0 out of 5 stars Lecturer by day, para-diplomat by night 25 Jun 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An interesting, and unusual take on the Trek franchise, but not as gripping as the trilogy whose effects this begins to tidy up. It's a good choice of idea to follow it up though as it deals with the future of the galaxy from multiple points of view, and sets the stage for the continuation novels of the next few years.

The main character, if there is one, is Sonek Pran, a rather dubious mix of Vulcan, Human, Betazoid and Bajoran (wouldn't have thought there were Bajorans around long enough ago). By day, he's a history lecturer on Mars, but by night an advisor and para-diplomat for the Federation President who runs around the galaxy sorting out problems. A possible opening for future novels I feel, although the character developed quite a bit in this one.

Also of note is the continued use of the USS Aventine, under Captain Dax, and introducing some more of her crew. Another opening one expects for a new line of novels!

All round, an important read, but not until after the Destiny trilogy, and definitely before any of the future continuations (and the next Titan book is on order from Amazon already!).

4.0 out of 5 stars post 'Destiny' this is more like it 7 July 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having criticised the 'Destiny' trilogy for feeding too much off tired and threadbare characters like Picard, Worf & la Forge this shows the kind of enterprise (sorry!) that the Trekosphere storyline needed. I worried that post-Destiny we'ld all wake up in Picard's bedroom to the sound of Beverley saying 'it's your turn to feed the baby - the bottle's in the replicator', closely followed by the Riker/Troi baby telepathically telling its parents it was time for a feed. Taking off with a fresh non-starship captain character (Sonek Pran) on the Aventine was the perfect idea. The Bowers/Pran interplay on Dax's ship worked well, as does the seeping influence of previous Dax's on the Aventine's captain Ezri. The reconstruction of the Trekosphere will take time and a lot of heartache between former allies - and a number of episodes which I am happy to follow through. Just please - Trek authors - don't time-warp back to a moment before the Caeliar did their thing with the Borg and have a wee Borg shoot off back in time towards safety and start the whole thing again. The Borg line was wrapped up neatly - keep moving on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to read 1 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Difficult to read and that is saying somethin. It is a good story but the constant missives to the logs of others was annoying to say the least. Wondering what is next for the series
