Reviewer : Bryan Moore Rating : 3
Review : Kirk, Scotty, Sulu, and Chekov recount their performance on the Kobayashi Maru scenario while awaiting rescue in a stranded shuttle. After the stories are recounted, Kirk comes up with a solution to their present "no-win scenario." The Good: Hearing each crew member's story about the Kobayashi Maru provided a great look at early lives of the classic characters. We finally get to see Kirk's solution to the no-win scenario. Scotty's solution to the scenario was brilliant, cementing his status as a miracle worker, even at a young age. The Bad (SPOILER WARNING): I was very disappointed to see that Kirk's solution to the Kobayashi Maru was relatively downplayed to the point of being nearly comic relief. While clever and somewhat Kirk-like, I was hoping for a more dramatic solution to the scenario. Kirk's solution to rescue seemed to be bad science at best. Exactly how does a radio reciever pick up light as well as radio waves. The idea of creating a "portable black hole" seems so unfeasible that the ending was somewhat ruined for me. Overall this was an interesting book. The Simon and Schulster Audio book read by James Doohan is also worth a listen (or a download if you use filesharing).

Review : I agree, it's a fantastic book which really delves deep into the character's lives. And it also shows how Kirk beat the Kobayashi maru. The Starfleet Academy game uses this story as well. If you see it, buy it. Absolutely fantastic!
Reviewer : Titan1080 Rating : 5
Review : This book takes place shortly after Star Trek: TMP. In a nutshell, Kirk and several senior officers are stranded in a shuttle with no hope of rescue. So to pass the time, they all share their stories about an Academy scenario in which you cannot win. The book kinda picks up where ST2 left off on the subject, going into detail how each officer who took the test dealt with the situation and their emotional reactions to the results. I thought that this novel did an excellent job providing some insight into the characters as well as some background stories. The techno-babble is enough to satisfy the plot without overwhelming the reader. A great book for any fan of Star Trek.
