An interesting, and unusual take on the Trek franchise, but not as gripping as the trilogy whose effects this begins to tidy up. It's a good choice of idea to follow it up though as it deals with the future of the galaxy from multiple points of view, and sets the stage for the continuation novels of the next few years.

The main character, if there is one, is Sonek Pran, a rather dubious mix of Vulcan, Human, Betazoid and Bajoran (wouldn't have thought there were Bajorans around long enough ago). By day, he's a history lecturer on Mars, but by night an advisor and para-diplomat for the Federation President who runs around the galaxy sorting out problems. A possible opening for future novels I feel, although the character developed quite a bit in this one.

Also of note is the continued use of the USS Aventine, under Captain Dax, and introducing some more of her crew. Another opening one expects for a new line of novels!

All round, an important read, but not until after the Destiny trilogy, and definitely before any of the future continuations (and the next Titan book is on order from Amazon already!).

Save your time and money. This book takes 350 pages to go nowhere, and takes its own sweet time in getting there. And when we do finally reach page 350 for Chapter 20, the big reveal is not worth the wait or time invested.

Following on 1 week from the events of the overblown Destiny trilogy, we have professor Sonek Pran touring the galaxy writing everyone's wrongs. I have no problem with the author attempting to create a non-starfleet passive hero, but I do have a problem with the character he created.

Pran is the most sanctimonious, self-righteous, holier-than-though and preachy character I have ever read. Imagine Guinan x20, and you you'd still fall short. Each time I read the character, I imagined him walking around with a big smug self-satisfied condescending grin on his face.

Even Pran might have been tolerable if the story or writing had been good. But Singular Destiny fails in both of these areas too.

The writing is blunt, without a style, and is as plain as the interior of Archer's Enterprise. We are never given a description of any of the locations we are taken too. The President's offices feel just like the Romulin leader's offices, which feel just like the mining colony, which feel just like every single other location in the book. Not once does the author set a scene. The story just happens, it doesn't seem to take place in a believable place.

Speaking of the story; there isn't one. This book is obviously just a filler or stepping stone from the galaxy changing occurrences of the Destiny trilogy, to whatever comes next. Whichever book comes next and deals with the (so-called) ending of this book, will have an interesting political theme, more in-keeping with the political dealings of Deep Space 9.

Having criticised the 'Destiny' trilogy for feeding too much off tired and threadbare characters like Picard, Worf & la Forge this shows the kind of enterprise (sorry!) that the Trekosphere storyline needed. I worried that post-Destiny we'ld all wake up in Picard's bedroom to the sound of Beverley saying 'it's your turn to feed the baby - the bottle's in the replicator', closely followed by the Riker/Troi baby telepathically telling its parents it was time for a feed. Taking off with a fresh non-starship captain character (Sonek Pran) on the Aventine was the perfect idea. The Bowers/Pran interplay on Dax's ship worked well, as does the seeping influence of previous Dax's on the Aventine's captain Ezri. The reconstruction of the Trekosphere will take time and a lot of heartache between former allies - and a number of episodes which I am happy to follow through. Just please - Trek authors - don't time-warp back to a moment before the Caeliar did their thing with the Borg and have a wee Borg shoot off back in time towards safety and start the whole thing again. The Borg line was wrapped up neatly - keep moving on.

This kind of feels like a prequel rather than a real book. (Wolverine rather than Batman)

It deals with the link between the previous Destiny(swedish tennis player) series of books and the new series, in which a new enemy will appear. Now the obvious question will be how they create this new force in the Star trek universe. Will it be a simple one dimensional bad guy? Or will they manage to write some depth into them?

Saying all that the book was actually a reasonable exploration of the characters trying to piece a number of separate events, and find out what is behind it all. I am not sure how the next few books will manage to expand on any of the characters in the book, but it is an interesting beginning.

Having read the Destiny triology i found this a fitting end to round up the series as open up a new chapter for the books to come after it.

The story provides what the TVs shows doesnt showing the emotional set backs of what people have had to deal with after the Borg attacks and all the little dramas that come out of the woodwork.

The last chapter gives a brilliant opening to what i hope will be a series of books which will give a new dynamic to the Star Trek universe.
