Time travel hurts my brain but it is still fun. This book is a great member of a series about the Department of Temporal Investigation of Star Fleet. With alternative dimensions and and time travel problems to add to the mix. A great story for fans of the DOT.

Christopher L Bennett's third story about the Department of Temporal Investigations sees investigators Dulmer and Lucsley returning with an anachronistic artefact to the DTI's base on Eris, followed by a slight accident that reunites them with an old friend.

The novella format seems to have freed the author from some of the gravity of a traditional Trek novel and he takes the opportunity to add a very welcome pile of humour that makes the whole reading experience greatly entertaining. While I often don't get on well with the Star Trek stories that focus on non-TV character, this one was a delight to read.

Bennett's vision of the future is one of fantastic detail, and his writing style allows the reader to pick up on things slightly ahead of the characters, one of my favourite traits in fiction. Overall a really good quick (but actually I didn't think too quick) read that adds to the DTI's story and makes me hope that he's able to return to this series again in the future.

This was the first story I'd read that featured DTI Agents Marion Dulmur and Gariff Lucsly which were introduced in Deep Space 9 and it was easy to pick up and get into the post television playground and I was quite pleased with Trek offering up scifi to the extreme well beyond what has been presented on television and film. I enjoyed the characters and the story of The Collectors and it certainly satisfied my expectations from the novella. That said shame on the publishers for it's relatively high price for the UK consumer compared to other novellas and the US pricing.

I found this book very engaging and couldn't put it down. It was moving at a fast pace, though right at the end the story just finished. Almost like the writer had run out of where to go next.

For the first 90% of the book I would give s strong 4 stars even a 5 for the buildup and humour. Though it's three stars overall for the way it wraps up a great story.

Borg fricking dinosaur! A nice mix of pseudo science with proper fan boy silliness. Easier to follow than the first dti book but enjoyable and uplifting.

Very good story, well told. Loved the plot as it was a Lucsley & Dulmer one, and I loved the characters from the show. Worth getting - 5 stars!

A good installment in the DTI series. Hoping they release more, it's a great offshoot from the usual ST series.

I nearly drew the line at the assimilated t-rex, but I was nearly at the end by then. Good read.
