Book Description

July 22 2008 Star Trek
It's been said that for any event, there are an infinite number of possible outcomes. Our choices determine which outcome will follow, and therefore all possibilities that could happen do happen across countless alternate realities. In these divergent realms, known history is bent, like white light through a prism -- broken into a boundless spectrum of what-might-have-beens. But in those myriad universes, what might have been...is what actually happened.

A Less Perfect Union: More than a hundred years after the Terra Prime movement achieved its dream of an isolationist Earth, humanity is once again at a fork in the river of history...and the path it follows may ultimately be determined by the voice of a single individual: the sole surviving crewmember of the first Starship Enterprise.™

Places of Exile: Midway through Voyager's journey across the galaxy, Captain Kathryn Janeway and Commander Chakotay must choose whether to brave a deadly war zone or abandon their quest for home. But an attack by Species 8472 cripples the ship, and the stranded crew must make new choices that will reshape their destinies...and that of the Delta Quadrant itself.

Seeds of Dissent: Khan victorious! Almost four centuries after conquering their world, genetically enhanced humans dominate a ruthless interstellar empire. But the warship Defiance, under its augmented commander, Princeps Julian Bashir, makes a discovery that could shake the pillars of his proud civilization: an ancient sleeper ship from Earth named the Botany Bay.

4.0 out of 5 stars Leave "Echoes", Take "Infinity's" Feb. 15 2010
Format:Paperback
When I reviewed the sister book of "Infinity's Prism", "Echoes and Refractions", I was far from flattering. I recommended it to not even be read but by only the most merciful and die-hard of Trek fans. I had my reasons, though: The book was awful; it was boring and unimaginative to both Star Trek and alternate history fans.

With that in mind, THIS book is the exact opposite. I wrote in my "E and R" review that it carried all the trademark flaws of alternate history, but not only does "IP" lack these flaws, it also has (in all three stories) another positive alternative history quality that I had forgotten until just now: It ends with an indefinite conclusion. Why is that a positive quality? Because Star Trek (hey, history in general) doesn't have a finite ending. There is no "The End" or "...and they lived happily ever after...in space." because it's a tale that is meant to go on and on.

So needless to say, the stories were good, but for those of you still undecided, I'm gonna give you a little taste of what to expect.

While "A Less Perfect Union" was probably my least favourite story in this anthology, it was still a gem. To be fair, one of the reasons I didn't like it so much as the other two stories was probably because this one is based mostly on "Enterprise" and "The Original Series", which I have seen the least of the five Trek series.

Near the end of Enterprise's run they had an encounter with an Earth isolationist group called Terra Prime, intent on routing all non-humans from Earth space, and restricting Earth's stellar movements to commercial rather than exploratory goals.
