Most novelisations of a film are usually somewhat dull, often filled with random thoughts on what the author believes the character is thinking. However, this novel is absolutely first rate. After all, who knows the crew of the Enterprise better than the man who created them in the first place.
As much as I like the original Star Trek The Motion Picture, this novel actually reads more like the latest `director's cut' of the film and as such it is more satisfying than the original screenplay.
The story is classic Trek, a massive energy cloud is heading on a direct course to Earth and the only ship within interception range is the Enterprise. There are problems however as the ship is just finishing a massive refit, the systems are untested and the warp drive is not ready. Kirk, now an Admiral, uses the current crisis to get back command of the Enterprise, much to Captain Decker's (son of Matt Decker from TOS's The Doomsday Machine) disgust and the ship has only two days to stop the alien menace before it destroys the planet.
Roddenberry expands on all the characters in the novel and gives a nice amount of back story to fill in the events between the end of the Enterprise's first five year mission and now. Kirk's missions within the Admiralty are alluded to and his relationship with Admiral Lori Ciana also make a certain event have more impact and this in turn leads to a connection with the series of Classic Trek books which cover `the lost years' between the original series and this movie.Read more ›
