Reviewer : Yetiman
Ave Rating : 4.2500 for 8 reviews
Title : How Much for Just the Planet? Rating : 1
Writers : John M. Ford Year : 1987
Review : As far as the Star Trek universe is concerned, this book completely flops. None of the time-honored characters such as Kirk, Spock, McCoy are portrayed accurately. Instead, Ford seems to rewrite those characters almost from scratch. The plot is very convoluted and confusing, and the ending is less than satisfying. I would not recommend this novel.
Title : Sanctuary Rating : 4
Writers : John Vornholt Year : 1992
Review : Vornholt does a fanatastic job of creating a good story that lives up to the spirit of adventure that permeates the Star Trek universe. The story has a bit of a slow beginning, but quickly picks up the pace as it progresses. The plot twists and turns quite wonderfully, making this book a good read.
Title : The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh - Volume II Rating : 5
Writers : Greg Cox Year : 2002
Review : A great continuation of the storyline, Cox weaves both Star Trek and real events together in this great novel.
Title : The Eugenics Wars: The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh - Volume I Rating : 5
Writers : Greg Cox Year : 2001
Review : As one of the greatest villians in the Trek universe, Khan deserved to have the story of his rise and fall told. This book is possibly one of the best for Trek.
Title : The Valiant Rating : 5
Writers : Michael Jan Friedman Year : 2000
Review : This novel gives Trek readers an outstanding story for Picard's earlier career on the USS Stargazer, as well as how he gained his first command. A very good read.
Title : Titan Book 1 : Taking Wing Rating : 5
Writers : Andy Mangels, Michael A. Martin Year : 2005
Review : This book has an excellent plotline and good development of the characters involved. It does a great job of continuing the storyline established by Nemesis, as well as many Trek novels written before it. It also diverges from the typical Trek heterosexual scope of the world, which was refreshing. All in all, a good read.
Title : Crucible: McCoy: Provenance of Shadows Rating : 5
Writers : David R. George III Year : 2006
Review : David George does an excellent job of delving into the psyche of McCoy while connecting so many of the events in the Original Series. I absolutely love the development of McCoy's character. I found it refreshing, as so many Trek novels focus more on plot, rather than character.
Title : Crucible: Spock: The Fire and the Rose Rating : 4
Writers : David R. George III Year : 2006
Review : Although this novel is shorter than the first in the trilogy, which focuses on McCoy, "The Fire and the Rose" gives a deep look into the (dare I say) soul of Spock, as well as fill in the gaps between ST: The Undiscovered Country and his appearance in TNG. I'm not sure that the character of Spock is as deeply tormented as David George portrays him, but it certainly is a good read.
