4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiration for STTNG "Tin Man" episode 23 Jan. 2017
By B. Day - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I got this book when I found out it was the inspiration for Star Trek: The Next Generation's "Tin Man" episode. That episode is one of my all time favorites and it was fun to read the original. It's definitely not the same as that episode but there are a ton of similarities. It was interesting to see what was the same and what was different.

This book isn't going to blow your mind -- it's more of light, 'beach read' book. That said, I really liked this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it both times 18 Oct. 2015
By Rod Machado - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the most enjoyable sci-fi books I've ever read. Picked it up in 1979, read it, and just re-read it. Loved it both times. Great "first contact" story.
3.0 out of 5 stars Speculative first contact sci-fi. An ESP gifted human melds minds with an alien intelligence older than Earth. 3 Mar. 2017
By SMCA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Speculative far future first contact sci-fi. In the far reaches of space, the Pegasus (FTL cruiser), on a routine civilian transportation mission, discovers a dormant alien vessel of unknown origin. The captain, a cynical jaded career spacer, receives a special envoy from Earth, a young and promising "Talent" (ESP gifted human), in the hopes his untapped psychic potential may unlock the mystery of the alien vessel. He does more than that: he "wakes" the vessel inadvertently, causing a ranking officer crew member with ESP (a 'Shiplady' required on all vessels by regulation) to sabotage the captain. He enters and communes with the alien vessel, a cybernetic intelligence in need of a symbiotic mind-meld relationship to fully function. He discovers a beauty and empathy unknown to the other "Talents" of Earth who are subject to the ugly superstitious thoughts of humanity. The "Tin Woodman," as it's been dubbed, flees into FTL drive in search of its own kind and the enraged captain pursues heedless of destination or danger (or even orders!) while the crew grows restive and mutinous. A side story of bittersweet love and empathy regarding the 'shiplady' and a rebellious engineer fleshes out the story as well as diary entries by a high ranking officer who becomes enmeshed in a mutinous plot to stop the mad captain. A good speculative look at first contact and the shortfalls of human empathy and understanding. Short (less than 200 pages). Easy to read. Well balanced action, psychological tension and dialogue. Recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars A story you will remember for a long time 21 Jun. 2017
By Theresa May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Some stories will stay with you for a long, long time. This is one of them.Written as a novella,this short story , for me, ranks with the best stories, not just sci-fi, I have ever read.You owe it to yourself to take a couple of hours and find out what I mean.It might just change what your concept of "togetherness"means.
