Reviewer : Blaston Phools
Ave Rating : 4.0000 for 2 reviews
Title : Homecoming Rating : 3
Writers : Christie Golden Year : 2003
Review : Not all that much to add in terms of the premise goes which hasent already been commented on, we all get to find out what happens after "Endgame" though with hindsight (which is always 20-20) id rather have just left those curcimstances to my imagination rather than from a mediocre author who although has a strong grasp of the star trek universe an equal understanding of how to write an ingaging book sadly is lacking. I didnt even finish the book i found the storyline slow, staggered and slightly reminiscent of a crap Voyager two-parter, infact not only did i not finish the book i havent even read the sequal yet..
Title : Star Trek: The Next Generation Technical Manual Rating : 5
Writers : Michael Okuda, Rick Sternbach Year : 1991
Review : Ok.. Here goes.. This books is as close to a real starships blue-prints that your likely to find for the next 100 years. Okuda shows what happens if you let your imagination expand into what is unknown and find answers to questions where not ready to tackle, such as the "Space flywheel" or as Okuda calls it the inertial dampners, A function that cancels out the force of exceleration or force of any kind if applied to our simple understanding of internal combustion mechanics. The book itself is fiction no doubt and raises more questions than it answers, although some superficial questions such as communicator functions, waste recycling and strangly enough a department where dolphins are kept for inter-species communication of some kind? are all explained in painful detail as are all the typical federation starship functions we have come to know very well, are all explained in as much detail as our basic understanding of physics allows and a very creative author. There are a few hidden "easter eggs" throughout the book such as on page 11 on the ship cross-section if you look close in the cargo bay you can see the silhouette of a sports car, and under the bridge theres a duck a mouse and a propeler plane. Anyone who still feels like the Enterprise-D fell before her time, blame the emergency crash landing diagram on page 29, this is what gave Mr Braga his Generations Enterprise crash scene idea in the first place! The book was a perfect companion for another outstanding book called "The Physics of Tsat Trek" by a physicist called Lawrence M. Krauss, i strongly recommend you read this book!
