6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By JL on June 21 2009
Format: Paperback
JJ Abrams's reboot of the Star Trek franchise was amazing, but it left a lot of questions unanswered. This book really bridges the established universe with the new vision.

It explains why a "simple mining vessel" is so large and heavily armed. It explains why all the Romulans have tattoos we've never seen before. It explains (to a point) what Red Matter is.

Summary:

This is the prequel to 2009 movie "Star Trek" ([...] explaining how Ambassador Spock came to arrive in the past and have the mission he does, as well as the back story for the villain, Nero.

Spock pleads with the Romulan Senate to do something about a giant supernova that may destroy the planet and beyond. He's backed up by Nero, a Romulan miner who has seen the supernova first-hand. Loyal to his Empire and his young family, Nero vows to risk everything to help Spock. Despite the assistance of Captain Data of the Enterprise and Ambassador Picard, the supernova engulfs Romulus. A furious and vengeful Nero, equips his mining ship with secret Romulan weaponry and proceeds to destroy everything non-Romulan in his path, taking on a large contingent of Klingon ships under General Worf, who is saved by the Enterprise. Spock proceeds with his plan to stop the supernova using Vulcan technology and a special ship designed by Geordi LaForge. Although he succeeds in creating a black hole to destroy the supernova, Spock's ship is pulled into the black hole along with Nero in his ship.

My Reaction:

I like it. Although it's a little too convenient, to have all our favourite characters -- Spock, Data, Picard, Geordi and Worf -- meet up in this Star Trek TNG near-future, it's still fun to see them all in these new roles and stages in their lives. I haven't read a lot of Star Trek graphic novels or fiction outside of the TV shows and movies so I don't get enough of the "so where are they now" speculation. It's also nice to get a little back story that makes us feel for Nero, and I've always thought that we need more Romulan inside story details so it's good to see the Senate politics.

But it should have been more in concordance with the story that Spock told during the MindMeld. And the Jellyfish was suppose to be commissioned by the Vulcan Science Academy. So why Geordi LaForge have someting to do with it?
