Review : Okay, I know Greg Bear is a pretty successful sci-fi writer, and a case could be made that I have no standing to tell him how to write... but I've read several of his books and found them all to have a very 'cold' feel: the universe is basically beyond our limited understanding and we're pretty insignificant in it. This does NOT fit the Trek ethos! "Corona" is pretty standard Bear, in this sense. It centers around the sort of exotic notion that you'd expect a cosmological physicist to have late at night when he can't sleep, and develops into an almost Lovecraftian situation. It's all WAY too dark and cold to fit into our shiny and optimistic Trek universe, and the mismatch shows up very strongly. It's like you're not even reading Trek at all, but some sort of 24th century Twilight Zone with characters who merely have the same names as our beloved TOS crew. If you're a fan of Bear's other work, you might like it. Otherwise, no.

Review : I agree with Bates; the story is just too cold. It's just so, I don't know, dark, I guess. This book could have used some major revamping.

Review : Alien takeover... rather dark, but overall not too bad.
