2.0 out of 5 stars A Real Waste, 26 Jun. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Star Trek: The Original Series: The Folded World (Mass Market Paperback)
I don't really enjoy the TOS era novels as much as the 24th century books. The era just doesn't hold as much interest for me, but I do keep up with them as they come out. Thankfully, some are pretty good stories but that said, Allegiance in Exile, Devils Bargain, Weight of Worlds, The Shocks of Adversity and now The Folded World have come together and have proved to be a bit gruelling.

Having recently read The Folded World I have to say it is the worst of the bunch. Allegiance in Exile was superior, Devils Bargain an unexpectedly pleasant revisit with the Horta, The Weight of Worlds a real romp and The Shocks of Adversity was great !

The Folded World was a hugely missed opportunity. The cover grabbed me - I expected to explore an interesting spacial anomaly, resolve a mystery, some alien ships, another Constitution class and (most tempting) an older Starfleet ship.

The anomaly remained an unexplained plot device, the fate of the crews likewise and the ships entirely unexplored. The story itself was O.K. - it would have been an average TOS episode. The author had only a basic grasp of the characters and the dialogue didn't always feel quite right. It was a struggle to get through...
