5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Trek, 31 July 2012

There have been some superb Original Series stories of late (The Rings of Time by Greg Cox, and the splendid Vanguard series by David Mack and others), but this has certainly been my favorite read of 2012 - I haven't even finished it as yet. Why? Because this novel comes across as an original series episode. For those of us who have loved Trek since the 70's, you can truly hear, see and feel the original (and best) characters and crew of the Starship Enterprise, and the story would have made a superb two-parter in the original show. Ward has also sourced nicely from prior events of the classic show to bring together a satisfying mixture of tension, fascinating circumstances and events which show why Kirk and company were the best in the fleet.
I'd recommend this great read to any classic trek fan - it'll put you back where you want to be - risking all with the crew of THAT ship!

4.0 out of 5 stars A good, solid read in the classic TOS style, 26 May 2013

As the title suggests, this is a follow-up to the Original Series episode "That Which Survives". This novel certainly manages to call forth the style and atmosphere of the Original Series, with nice character moments for both some of the main characters (Kirk, Spock, Scotty and Uhura) as well as for some new alien characters (especially the Romulan Vathrael).

The only two points of criticism that occur to me are the somewhat excessive length of the book (380 pages where 250 might have sufficed) and the somewhat unrealistic emphasis on sparing the lives of opposing Romulans. Given what is at stake here, that felt like overly squeamish and unlike what Kirk would have done during the actual TV-series or motion pictures. Still, a good read.
