5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Look at Some of Trek's Lesser Known Characters!
Book II in what is an excellent duology, focusing on characters that may have only been seen once or twice throughout in an episode. And what's better is that we get to see the view of our heroes (in Book II it's Captain Janeway and Captain Picard) from the viewpoint of these characters.
Book II is excellent, although the cover is something of a misnomer. This is...

3.0 out of 5 stars Weaker of the Two
This is the weaker addition to a two part series. Even though Voyager is my favourite star trek series, i found this addition to the series to be very bland and dry, reminisent of the 2nd series which proved to the worst of its run. As for the second story within the book, this tried to achieve to much. This story which was meant to tie up the loose threads left from the...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb Look at Some of Trek's Lesser Known Characters!, 2 Feb 2003
This review is from: The Brave and the Bold: Bk.2 (Star Trek: All Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
Book II in what is an excellent duology, focusing on characters that may have only been seen once or twice throughout in an episode. And what's better is that we get to see the view of our heroes (in Book II it's Captain Janeway and Captain Picard) from the viewpoint of these characters.
Book II is excellent, although the cover is something of a misnomer. This is not a Janeway and a Picard book. This is a book with Janeway and Picard in it. And Worf...and Spock...and Lwaxana Troi...
Indeed, this book focuses on three people (mainly). Captain Robert DeSoto, mentioned in "Encounter at Farpoint" and later seen for 2 minutes of footage in the TNG 3rd season episode "Tin Man," and Captain Klaag of the author's excellent Klingon cre the IKS Gorkon (Klaag was seen in the TNG 2nd season episode "A Matter of Honour.)
These books have a superb, flowing style that allowed me to tear through them extremely quickly. The characterisations were excellent and the stories were excellent.
My only objection would be that there isn't a picture of DeSoto on the front cover!

3.0 out of 5 stars Weaker of the Two, 23 May 2003
This review is from: The Brave and the Bold: Bk.2 (Star Trek: All Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the weaker addition to a two part series. Even though Voyager is my favourite star trek series, i found this addition to the series to be very bland and dry, reminisent of the 2nd series which proved to the worst of its run. As for the second story within the book, this tried to achieve to much. This story which was meant to tie up the loose threads left from the other story did so badly. This wasnt because it approached it wrong, it was because the author was trying to use the TNG story to launch a series of books featuring a Klingon crew. As such the author is trying to use the story as a pilot and also a conclusion for the The Brave and the Bold.
The book was dry to start with and then tried to achieve to much at the end.
Its not a fantastic book, if you miss reading it, then you aint missing out on anything spectacular.

4.0 out of 5 stars Five Stars if it weren't for the Klingons., 11 April 2003
This review is from: The Brave and the Bold: Bk.2 (Star Trek: All Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
The Brave and the Bold was a nice go at using all the series in a short story format. Book 1 was right on form, however book 2 is let down by the dominant presence of the Klingons. The story rather than focusing on the Malkus artificats focuses instead the extremely complicated power fight going onboard a Klingon ship. The Enterprise crew was also portrayed as a bunch of incompetent morons who couldn't tie a shoe lace.
The story involving Janeway and co was well written.
An Ok book, but the presence of the Klingons makes it drag a bit.
