Reviewer : Brett Rating : 3
Review : Generally a good read. I liked that it covered a long period of time from the original 5 year voyage through to the launch of Enterprise D. I also liked the alternate timeline that McCoy had changed; certainly filled in a gap. Very well done. Mr. George did a nice job of weaving back and forth and really touched on all of the important events from TOS to the movies and beyond. My only criticism is that the novel is inconsistent with other novels. While I am aware that the novels are not cannon and that this allows for some lattitude, I think Mr. George should have been more sensitive to the other authors who wrote that the Guardian was not destroyed and that McCoy lived to be about 150 or so (in this book, McCoy dies at age 139). Minor things overall but still important for overall continuity. I also got a wee bit teary-eyed at the romanticism of McCoy finally coming to terms with his life and finding the love of his life. I look forward to the next two in this series.

Review : David George does an excellent job of delving into the psyche of McCoy while connecting so many of the events in the Original Series. I absolutely love the development of McCoy's character. I found it refreshing, as so many Trek novels focus more on plot, rather than character.

Review : w\Wonderful story of two possible lives of Dr. McCoy from the future and the past, this book weaves all sorts of different Star Trek mythos into it, from Edith Keeler to Benny Russell. Very imaginitive read.
