5.0 out of 5 stars The best I've read so far., 23 Nov 1998
By A Customer
I have yet to find a book by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens that I don't like. They've got it down to an art. I loved the way each member of the crew had their own story in this. All were tied together but they each had to make their own way back to the final regrouping of the whole crew. I have to admit that I read this book and immediately read it again. You always get something new out of a book or a movie the second time around. This was an excellent book and I would recommend it and all of the authors books to everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kirk faces the no win scenario in a Star Trek classic., 19 Feb 2001
i normally enjoy anything written by the Reeves-Stevens duo, and again i couldn't put this one down. At last someone gets punished for breaking the Prime Directive. About time! This is a truely ripping yarn that shows the crew written at their best. This is a must for any fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your "Prime Directive" should be to give this one a try !, 31 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Firstly let me admit I am a massive Star Trek fan and so I had a definite advantage knowing all the characters inside out before page one. But even for the novice Science Fiction fan then this is still a great read. The initial situation Kirk finds himself in is believably portrayed and is a sound basis for the plot development. My favourite part relates to the outside interference of the planet Talin and how with only a little stretch of the imagination, it could relate to Earth today.
With the event of The Next Generation, DS9 and Voyager the characters have frayed a little around the edges but still retain their prescence even in written form. I live in the UK and this book was first published in 1991 over here. I have read it no fewer than 4 times in that time and regard it as my top Sci-Fi read and my number 2 read overall (No 1 is Jack Higgins - Storm Warning (Fiction)). Beam Up Scotty and make sure you get the book as well.

A good read, couple of typos spotted and some chapters were duplicated but this didn't detract from the joy of reading this book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a lot about the Riemann Hypothesis, 1 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a lover of prime numbers, I was disappointed to find that this book didn't discuss the Riemann Hypothesis at all. On the plus side, this is actually a pretty good Star Trek novel that could have been made into a great movie 20 years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best, 18 April 1999
By A Customer
This is the best Star Trek novel I ever read. The best Sci-fi novel. It's one of the best BOOKS I ever read!
The storytelling is superb, absolutely moving. The Reeves-Stevens have outdone themselves again this time. It does not get any better than this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Starts Slow, but gets Better!, 11 Oct 1998
By A Customer
In Prime Directive, the crew of the Enterprise has been disbanded and a planet destroyed due to Captain Kirk's supposed violation of the Prime Directive. The plot lines of the story concern the nuclear destruction of the planet Talin, the involvement by the Enterprise, and Kirk's, along with the rest of the Enterprise's crew, attempt to prove the Prime Directive was not broken.
I felt the book started off slow with descriptions of the various crew members being scattered throughout the galaxy following the destruction of the Enterprise and Talin. The 2nd section of the book describes what actually took place at Talin when the Prime Directive was supposedly broken. This part is good, but was possibly a little too complicated. The book picks up in the 2nd half however, as Captain Kirk, along with the rest of the crew, must solve the mystery of what actually took place at Talin and why it wasn't their fault (the mystery of course is primarily solved by the logical Mr. Spock). The conclusion is good, but I personally felt the truth behind what actually happened behind the destruction on Talin was somewhat unsatisfying. The reader can decide this for themselves, however.
P.D. is a good story about Starfleet's rule of noninterference, though the story possibly had parts that could have been cut back. As in "Federation" (another J&G Reeves-Stevens' Trek book), the writing duo treat Star Trek History with respect and provide some great insights into it which Trek fans will appreciate. I recommend this book along with "Federation" to Trek fans and plan to read any other Trek books they have written.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping and Moving, 11 Oct 1997
By A Customer
"Prime Directive" is perhaps the greatest Classic TREK book ever written. The material is gripping with all of it's elements (humor, suspence, a great big mystery and all the great crew interaction we've come to except from STAR TREK). Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens are the most solid authors in the TREK market and always entertaining. Among all the adventure, watch for the intriguing prologue and the beatifully written epilogue that is the trade mark of the husband and wife wrirting team. team. There is NEVER a slow moment in this timeless tale that is more than worth reading. It's more than a ten, it's off the rating scale. ---CJC
