Title : Daedalus Rating : 3
Writers : Dave Stern Year : 2003
Review : I picked this book up off a friend's shelf, expecting to read a novelised version of the season 4 episode "Daedalus". To my surprise, I found myself reading about how, years ago, a young Mr Tucker was involved in the Daedalus project, an alternative to the 'Warp 5' engine, harnessing Ion Propulsion. Not only did it satisfy the continuity freak within me (no doubt the Daedalus leant its name to the Daedalus-class), but the closing chapters left me staring at the book, willing the sequel to appear after it. Not ground-shatteringly impossable to put down, but still a good read. Well worth a look, especially if you can borrow/steal it from someone else!
Title : The Lives of Dax Rating : 5
Writers : Marco Palmieri (Editor) Year : 1999
Review : What can I say? Nine hosts, nine stories, each one of them totally different. I don't know about everyone else, but I never realised how important Dax was. The people of the Federation have a lot to thank him/her/it for. The subtle references from Deep Space Nine are expanded out into something I really couldn't put down. Reading about Tobin's adventures back in the 'Enterprise' era, just how horrible a murderer Joran was, exactly why Sisko and Curzon are so close, and with all kinds of twists, turns and revelations along the way... I don't know what else to say. A darn good read. Can we have a 5.5 rating added just for this?
