Book one of a new star trek series by renowned author David Mack is always an exciting time. Having said that, i am yet to read a single volume of the hugely popular vanguard series so i am a little behind in my trek knowledge when it comes to the events described in Star Trek Seekers.

Volume one starts off in a very traumatic and emotional time for both the characters in the story and the reader. Parent / baby separation is always heartbreaking and to see it represented so well in a tome of acclaimed science fiction is hugely refreshing, and also, hugely surprising. Nimur and Kerlo are the unfortunate natives who find themselves in the position of having to give up their baby girl ("Tahna") to allow for the "change" and to also meet the demands of society and tradition.

The starship Sagittarius is investigating the planet Nereus Two and searching for justifiable reasoning behind some interesting scientific discrepancies when they decide to go in for a closer look at the planet's surface, and its population. One wonders, therefore, if they will make contact with any locals, and if one particular local will go by the name of Nimur....

The writing in this book is pure class. The best star trek novels are based on solid, highly entertaining characters that we all know and love and even though this is a new series and i (for one) have not read any of the Vanguard Series, i feel comfortable enough with the characters already that i feel sure to enjoy this book greatly. Indeed, i yearn to find myself on the Sagittarius almost as much as i did the hallowed walkways of the Enterprise, and that is really saying something! The plotting and pacing is already at a good pace and as you progress through the book you will find yourself completely immersed in the book's glorious universe (pun intended). One feels compassion and understanding for the native mother who only wants to explore, witness and participate in her own child's growth into maturity so we all know who we are rooting for in the early parts of the book.

With Star Trek Seekers Volume 1, David Mack has proven himself yet again to be one of the wonders of the star trek universe, so i hereby award this book a conservative four stars. Hugely recommended.

BFN Greggorio!

Returning to the side of the Star Trek universe started in this is an interesting turn on a staple of Star Trek, the first contact goes wrong storyline. The new race are an intriguing addition to the universe and its nice to meet characters introduce in the Vanguard series (which I recommend highly). The only major downside is rather than being part one in a series it really feels more like part one of a larger book as the story is not resolved to any satisfaction. Hopefully the soon to be released book 2 will provide a better ending.

Any follow on to the fantadtic Vanguard series is appreciated, but this is a return to the somewhat less interesting 'Planet Of The Week' type of story.

It's a good (butnot great) planet of the week story, but we've had so many episodes and novels of this type...

Well this was a breath of fresh air. Nice pace good story. Also although there was not a lot of character building. You got a feel for them anyway. Looking forward to the next read.
