The second book in the Typhon Pact mini-series, which is also the second Trek book that Michael Martin has written solo, is a fairly run of the mill adventure. When a natural disaster destroys a Gorn breeding planet, two factions set out to find a replacement. The discovery of an ancient terraforming technology looks promising, but Will Riker and the crew of the USS Titan are afraid it could also be used as a weapon.

This novel occurs roughly simultaneously with the first Typhon Pact novel, but other than a few mentions it could have occurred anywhere in the Trek canon. It's a fairly standard story of alien technology, prime directive problems and arguments with the Gorn which seems to have almost no bearing on the continuing storyline. This is a little disappointing as I was hoping for something that would continue developing the plot.

The plot itself seems quite slow moving, and made hard to read by the Gorn speech being rendered in a 'Gorn phonetic dialect' which seems unnecessary given that they wouldn't be speaking English anyway. The action tends to stay in one place, and the different factions and number of named Gorn become a little confusing.

In terms of style it is very similar to the Bashir book which precedes it - both focus on one of the Typhon Pact's member races, showing them to be more than just a warmongers, and dealing with aspects of racism that pervade in the characters. It's more similar though to the earlier Titan novels, but it's far from the best of the bunch. I personally feel that Martin's writing has lost something since he stopped collaborating with long time writing partner Andy Mangels.

Overall I was a little disappointed. I was expecting something a little more grand and focussed on the Typhon Pact plot rather than a day in the life of the Titan. Hopefully the remaining two books in the mini-series will get things back on track.

I picked up the first book in the series and couldn't put it down. The second one I was hoping for more of the same... However, this was just a very poor effort by all involved.

Instead of focusing on the Breen as the first book in the series did, this one focuses on the Gorn. The Gorn who appear to act all too human except they have names that have apostrophes and all too many s's and h's. That's about it to be honest... It doesn't really focus on the whole Typhon pact as a whole, and could probably have been done for a better effect as a short Titan story. Even for a short book as it is, it still feels too long and there are many pages where all you can think is "Get on with it" as the crew of the Titan seem to do not very much at all as they wait for a civilization to be destroyed by a random and handily found world sculpting artifact.

All in all, this was not a good book. If you skip this, you won't have missed anything of any interest.

This book really ramped up the tension, showing a great peek into the Gorn society. I loved that this was an entire crew (Titan) rather then purely from the perspective o fine person in the previous book (Bashir). If this is a sign of things to come in the series, it's going to be an amazing series.

Definitely the best book in the series and works well as a stand alone novel. The story is well paced and the characters engaging. Well worth the read.

A good book with a good story line. Value is always good on kindle. Different star trek to what gene Roddenberry imagined.

The adventure continues with the crew of Titan. A typically good read read in the star trek world. Very enjoyable.
