Reviewer : ASR Rating : 2
Review : This continuation of the Dreadnought arc contains some of the most utterly pathetic plot ideas outside of Star Trek: Voyager. It posits a Starfleet countering a "radical leftist" plot within its ranks (since the Federation seems a pretty leftist place, this seems irrational, to say nothing of the notion that such people would construct a huge weapon like the Deadnought). Furthermore, its charicature of vulcan society as a culture of intellectual supremacist bigots, its virtually neocon agenda with the Federation itself, and the inconsistency with established canon contrive to make it a thoroughly muddy read. The only redeeming feature is a certain amount of engaging characterization.

Review : A half-effective continuation of "Dreadnought". The plot itself is truly implausible, but the characterizations of the characters was done fairly well (even if they would fail a Mary Sue litmus test).
