2.0 out of 5 stars Not to the Normal trek novel standard, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This Titan novel was a follow up from the fall series and was John Jackson Millers first jaunt into the Star Trek universe and to be honest It didnt really read well at all! His version of the characters seemed very different to most other authors, especially Captain Dax and the Aventine who could just have easily been replaced by just about any other ship. There were stupid errors as well, one characters was addressed as ensign when he was promoted to Ltnt junior grade in an earlier novel and the word teleport was used instead of beam. These are all small things however 99% of other recent trek books have always got this correct. It seems to me that the author has come in from the Star Wars universe and either not done the proper research or was just very sloppy. Apart from the very small mentions of events in the fall and the inclusion of the Aventine this is very much a stand alone title so this one could be skipped if necessary. Sadly I think the author should stick to the Star Wars Universe.

PS for those complaining about the length of the book .... Amazon make it very clear that this is an ebook, they even put the number of pages on the product page, so people shouldnt moan and give it lower stars due to the length of the novella

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good part 2 of the fall series, 9 Oct. 2013

This was the second story in "The Fall" Mini series set during and after the events of Revelation and Dust. Despite the stunning cover, this story is mainly set around Ambassador Garak and how he and Cardassia reacts to the events of the previous novel. I don't want to say much about the plot except that it is a must read however what i will say is that I feel in the same way Voyager is best written Kirsten Beyer, DS9 by David R George III, TNG by David Mack and the original series split between Dayton Ward and Kevin Dillmore, The Cardassians Belong to Una McCormack. Not just characters but her descriptions of whats left of the planet after the events of the dominion war and everything else after. She immersed me in that world and I would love to go back there again soon.

An excellent novel of an excellent mini series so far :) Looking forward to the next book and Una's next entry which has been advertised on amazon as being out December next year .... lets hope we see more of her work in the trek universe before then Star Trek: The Next Generation: Home Again


Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Stuff of Dreams
Star Trek: The Next Generation: The Stuff of Dreams
Price: £4.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good - But I wish people would rerember it is an ebook, 1 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Stuff of dreams is a EBOOK set in the post destiny universe that i am quite enjoying to be honest however this book provides a nice break for that in a boxed book. As has been said before, this is basically a short sequel to generations and it does its job very well, its very picard centric, but thats nice, and it was also good to see a softer side to soren, a side which was a peace with himself.

One thing that does annoy is is every single time pocket release an ebook, there is always one person that gives it one star as it wasnt long enough and they dont feel they are getting there moneys worth. It clearly states this is an Ebook and it even says how many pages it contains, why give it one star ..... Yes the £3.99 maybe a bit steep but its better then having to wait for months in between full length novels.

James has written a really nice piece here and I highly recommend this even if like me, you didn't like generations that much

4.0 out of 5 stars Cold equations, 11 Jan. 2013

Whilst I agree this is not the best trilogy we have seen and it is no Destiny ... It is far better then the reviews below. I do agree that i was not a fan of bringing data back ( for that reason i was not a fan of bringing Janeway back ) It was done for a reason and the data we have now is not the data that died at the end of nemesis. Pick this up and you can read far worse.

I just want to pick up on an reviewer that said that "too many star trek books where the whole galaxy is affected by the outcome of these individual stories and think the franchise could do with the same well written stories on a smaller scale" I strongly disagree with this. Whilst there is a place for stand alone books in the TOS series, a lot of writers and work have gone into the universe going all the way back to A Time To Be Born The universe we have now spans across all of the series and characters such as the crew of the di vinchi and president bacco , the crew of the Titan and soo many more. I really would not want someone to press the reset button as i have spent years invested in the universe. I would much prefer the series titles be dropped and all the books will just be called star trek.

Pick this up now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moebius squared, 11 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Moebius squared is effectively a sequel and a prequel of sorts to Moebius part one and two. This is not a bad thing but it mean that you really need to have seen it before you read this. This book is a first in a while that reminds me of a team episode of the series. I suppose it helps that there are two versions of the team in this story, however this does end up making things slightly confused especially with the scenes with O'Neill and Sam.

Moebius squared also has a little bit of a B-story regarding how carter got command of the Hammond. Whist i dont think it was necessary to the story-line, it was a little nice side story.

Overall i think it was a really good story, however i havnt read anything from Melissa Scott and Jo Graham that i didnt like. They and the other authors are carrying the torch of SG1 and SGA and they are doing a very good job.... lets home until we get another direct to DVD :)

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like DS9 this is a must read .. if you like TNG maybe not so much, 14 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
First of all I would like to say how happy i was that the novels were heading back to Deep Space Nine and her crew as since the series "Season 8" selection of books we really havnt seen much of them recently

This story also takes place within the gamma quadrant with the enterprise and its romulan counterparts.Without giving to much away - this is were i think the story falls a little short. David has wrote a lot of DS9 storys and knows the characters very well and he writes them with ease however the TNG characters seemed to have lost there personality and in some cases there voices - i cant help but feel if David Mack or James Swallow had wrote this the characters would been more consistent with previous novels

However as i said above David does DS9 very well and as much of this takes place on the station its a very easy read, and i cant wait for the follow up book to this which is out next month ( which is nice of pocket books - they tend to schedule these things preety badly) Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn especially beacuse of those last fateful words of the book.

" And then Deep Space Nine"..........

shall i spoil it for you ..... naaaaaaa - get this now

5.0 out of 5 stars Frakking brilliant ... but why an amazon exclusive ??, 2 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Everyone that has seen Firefly knows that it is seer brilliance ... it really is truley a western in space ... the casting was genius specially Nathan fillion and the gourgous Jewele Staite who went on to play Dr Keller in Stargate: Atlantis. Firefly was far better then some sci fi shows out there which is why it is a great shame that fox in all there wisdom decided to cancel the show after one season and show the episodes out of order and in some cases not at all in america.

The show has now established a cult following and has there own version of "trekkies" called "browncoats" who attend coventions around the world ... clearly fox didnt no what they had ....

and obviously still dont as they have made this an amazon exclusive ??? surely they would sell more of them if the blu ray was made available everywhere and also may bring intrest for a return to Firefly ?? Although fox may not want that which is why they proberly did the exclusive deal in the first place .... planks really .....
