Book Description

The U.S.S. da Vinci is at last ready to resume its mission after the catastrophic events of Wildfire -- but before the ship can even leave Spacedock, a mysterious alien vessel appears out of nowhere in San Francisco. With the aid of Captain Montgomery Scott and former Starship Enterprise™ and Deep Space Nine™ engineer Miles O'Brien, the S.C.E. must investigate the alien vessel and learn if this is an attack, a first contact -- or something worse....
What they find may land the Federation in the midst of an interdimensional war, as Commander Sonya Gomez works with Starfleet legends from two generations to untie the secrets of the alien ship before it's too late!

4.0 out of 5 stars Do you want fries with that new second officer? 23 Jun. 2012
By Rory Q
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
So first off, it's worth noting that as of this compilation, the series is now being released in trade paperback format. This allows for more stories in each release but also has the downside of being more than twice as large and therefore more unwieldy.

It's good to see the Da Vinci back out in space in this compilation and still feeling the effects of the Galvan VI mission from Wildfire. To review each of the stories in turn:

Aftermath introduces us to the new Tellarite second office, Tev - and what a breath of fresh air he is. While I think it's possible for a reader to feel the loss of Duffy and his unique take on life, Tev more than makes up for the loss. Also, my personal opinion is that Stevens is becoming a more fleshed out character as a result of Duffy's loss, but seems to have inherited some of Duffy's characteristics.

Tev on the other hand instantly makes his entrance memorable by managing to pretty much rub everyone up the wrong way with his gruff and superior attitude. I admire the fact the authors usually have him be right most of the time, therefore validating the arrogance. What makes Tev stand out (over the course of the whole compilation) is that he's fairly honest and without guile, so his attitude is justifiable. It's also good to see a Tellarite take centre stage, as we've never really got to know them as a race - and at the point this book was written, Enterprise hadn't introduced them as a major player in the formation of the Federation yet.

Back to Aftermath though; the story has a welcome post-DS9 cameo from O'Brien and expands on his life after 7 years on the Cardassian station and also picks up on the effects of the Breen attack on Earth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Popcorn Book 16 Aug. 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read all of the S.C.E books up till this one. They are certainly not going to win a major book prize. Like I say they are popcorn books, to continue the metaphor a good snack, not a meal.

If you have not read any before this is a good place to start as they have recently made character changes. The new character Tev is quite interesting and works well.

One of the problems I have with these books is that they make constant reference to episodes and series. So much so that you get the impression that the Enterprise(any),Defiant,DS9,Voyager are the only ships or bases that do anything in the federation. It would be nice if they made links to other federation ships. So you may find the name dropping somewhat irritating.

Overall the stories are enjoyable but the science is ridiculously bad, to differing degrees.

Nevertheless it has some enjoyable moments and is a good read.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good jumping on point 14 April 2009
Format:Paperback
This was the first SCE book I picked up, having been scared off up till now by the thought of stories about engineers solving problems with weird, made up particles (a la Voyager). I was astonished to learn that this is probably the most true to the original vision of Star Trek of any of the novel series - the crew go out there, meet new people and solve problems.

A good collection of shorter stories, all of them well written and engaging (some better than others, but hey, what do you expect?). If you haven't read any SCE before, this is a good place to start as it introduces a lot of new characters. However, if you have no idea who Kieran Duffy is the repeated mention of that (deceased) character will get trying.

4.0 out of 5 stars SCE at their best 21 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have not finished reading this book yet but what I have read is excellent. I appear to have missed a book denoting what happened to the Da Vinci but Aftermath is bringing me up to speed, with the new crew members being integrated into the team, looking forward to completing my reedification.
