Reviewer : Ktasay Rating : 1
Review : Just how much damage can a ship take and still remain spaceworthy? Even Scotty's remarkable skills are taxed beyond limits in this book. There is also a serious technical fault in having the ship limp back to base at impulse (a trip which took a few hours at warp took only over a week by impulse??!!?? Does the author even know how fast Warp Speed is?) All in all, barring the technical errors the plot was OK.

Review : The best way to describe this book is like a sneeze; it builds, builds and then....nothing; sniff and inhale and its gone. Forget the technical aspect of how much damage a starship can take or travel time (this is 1987, give them break-suspend disbelief and just enjoy.) The story is definitely McCoy heavy and thats ok. But even the other characters are stereotypes of the original. and even then Uhura gets to go onto a landing party into danger, its flat. Chekov just spouts Russia lines. The "Ravens" are an interesting race, but the ending was a let down. I was expecting a heavy epilogue, and it didn't happen. It was like the author had a great idea and build up and then the space battle and then.... now what? How do I set everything back to the way it should be. This could have ended better or at lest explain things at the end. Disappointing.
