When a massive alien spaceship is discovered and then attacks a human colony, Starfleet sends in the crew of the Shenzhou to investigate and save the day. This sets up a meeting with the ORIGINAL crew of the Enterprise, lots of cool stuff and some very clever explanations of the visual differences between TOS and DSC.
It's a cracking read and the intertwining stories all build to an exciting and riveting climax.
I really do recommend this one, especially if you've seen the start of DSC.
This story is set a year before the opening episode of the TV series, and sees Burnham as a newly minted first officer facing a distress call from a rebel colony. It also features a guest appearance by a familiar ship and crew member and goes some way to dealing with some of the questions that long term audiences might have. That said, I do wonder if these aspects are being explored only in the novels what the point was/is of having set the story up in quite this way for TV.
It’s a fairly average Trek novel actually. A bit reminiscent of the early TNG novels in terms of the plot. The pre-TV setting is good as it means Mack is free to play around with the characters and not be bound by putting them back in the box. He does a fair bit to give background to both Burnham and Saru which goes beyond what we’ve learnt from TV, and this to me is what makes the book most compelling.
Conclusion: if you like Star Trek novels, or want to like Star Trek novels, then go for it. If you’re new and curious, up to you. If you only watch TV, then carry on watching TV.
