Most Star Trek books I have read have been merely okay, but no better, and that has put me off reading many. So I came to this series on novels with low expectations. But I had read some recommendations, and my curiosity had been piqued.
Other previous reviews have given a lot of detail on the 4 books in this volume, and, to be honest, that is why I bought this rather than the cheaper individual story.
I'm normally quite picky with novels, but this lot drew me in almost immediately, and I have been reading it in every bit of spare time I have. Highly readable, and fully engrossing, with plenty of action, and good characters (checkout Si Cwan, Kebron, Burgoyne 172 and Captain Calhoun)! Much better than the other ST books I have read.
I would recommend this book to any SF ot ST reader.

Very good fun to read with some real laugh out loud moments, this is not the reserved, somewhat stiff and formal Starfleet we know today. Captain Calhoun of the Ambassador-class starship Excalibur (what a cool name!) rampages around the galaxy foiling terrorists in the most blatant and daring manner I've ever seen, then tries to restore the balance between brawling empires. The story introduces a large number of truly memorable characters, most of whom get their chance to shine. The banter between characters is very sharp - Captain Calhoun has most of Starfleet's top brass tearing their hair out.
Best bit: When Kebron and Si Cwan turn their prison into a Federation embassy, I was almost screaming with laughter. It really is that funny.
I don't think the Excalibur itself gets a lot to do; anyone interested in the technical side of Trek is going to be seriously disappointed, and the Vulcan characters are highly humanised. There's the usual pointless parade of established Original Series and Next Generation characters too.
Purists will hate themselves for liking this, but it's a hugely enjoyable way to pass an afternoon (this "compilation" is shorter than some junior school books and won't take long to get through!).

This omnibus edition contains the first four New Frontier books in one volume and is worth every penny. The New Frontier series resembles the original Star Trek adventures more than any off the other series which have emerged over the years and as such if you loved the original adventures of Kirk you're sure to love this.

the one word i would use to sum up these books is WOW! i originally brought them for my sister who was mad on star trek, i at the time thought it very boring to say the least but i decided to give one book a go- just to shut her up and ended up buying every other book in the seris. it is amazing the charactors can make you laugh out loud or bring tears to your eyes, i sometimes find myself yelling at the book saying "no no don't". the vulcans soleta and selar are not very vulcan but then the other characters more than make up for this robin being "desperatly outgoing" and shelby well you have to another thing i now love about peter davids work is the way he fits everything togeher its truly great. read the book to find out about her. but trust me read it it's good.

This omnibus consists of four ST:NF books: "House of Cards", "Into the Void", "The Two-Front War" and "End Game". ST:NF basically tells the stories of the USS Excalibur and its crew - and it's so good! The truth is that you need to read these four books together because they tell one story, they are not stand-alone.

I love the characters, they are real heroes in the old sense of the word. The female characters are strong without being bitchy or arrogant. And the plot, I really like it. It would have been great to see the special effects on screen. But the best part? The dialogs! The book is not dark and gloomy, it's fun and full of adventure and the banter - especially between Si Cwan and Kebron - is hilarious!

Conclusion? I will definitely keep buying books in this series, that's for sure!
