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.
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!).
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!

The main story around the series is the collapse of the Thollian Empire, a tyrannical regime that has ruled over a sector of space for well over 200 years. Read morePublished on 5 Sept. 2003 by Robert Myhill
This book immediately hits you with its witty, off-the-bat sense of humour. It also contains scenes of violence that are, for Trek, quite shocking. Read morePublished on 24 May 2002
