Book Description

July 10 2007 Star Trek (Book 10)
Ambassador Sarek meets his future wife. Captain Ransom atones for his sins. T'Pol pursues a composer, after she is captivated by the human's music. Strands of DNA are woven together from four Starfleet captains, creating one man with one mission. An entity fights for its right to live, despite the fact that it is not alive.

From the ordinary to the extraordinary, all of these stories are embraced by the vision of Star Trek®. When Gene Roddenberry created Star Trek, he also tapped a wellspring of human imagination. Viewers were transformed into fans, who embraced the show and turned the definition of "fan" on its ear. However, when what was on the screen was simply not enough, fans started writing their own stories, which they then shared among friends and family.

Ten years ago, Pocket Books offered Star Trek fans a unique opportunity to become a part of the Star Trek mythos. A contest was created in which the best stories submitted by nonprofessional writers would be published. And over the course of a decade, hundreds of pounds of submissions poured in. Many of the writers who submitted to Strange New Worlds went on to become professional writers.

This time there are nineteen writers: Rigel Ailur, David DeLee, M.C. DeMarco, Rick Dickson, Louis E. Doggett, Aimee Ford Foster, Edgar Governo, Robyn Sullivent Gries, Jim Johnson, Gerri Leen, Muri McCage, Brian Seidman, Randy Tatano, Paul C. Tseng, Rob Vagle, Laura Ware, Carolyn Winifred, Jerry M. Wolfe, and Jeremy Yoder.
We welcome them to the book that is by the fans, for the fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of a great set of books Dec 6 2007
It is unfortunate that this is the last in the line of "Strange New Worlds" books. This book, as with the whole series, was written BY Star Trek fans FOR Star Trek fans. Each author had to have less than 3 professional writing sales, and this ensured new blood. The creativity exhibited by the authors of all the short stories in this series of books is phenomenal.

The competition produced hundreds of stories each year, and the editors did a great job of choosing the few which would go into each year's volume. It must have been a tremendous amount of work (which I'm guessing may be the reason why the series has ended).

Personally, I don't remember a single story in the whole series that I didn't like.

If you are a Star Trek fan, this book, nay, the whole series, are a must read.

Even if you are not generally a Star Trek fan, the stories will still interest, amaze and entertain you.

4.0 out of 5 stars SNW: 10. Sept. 10 2007
By TJAMES03 - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First of all, this review is JUST MY OPINION. Yours will no doubt be different, I am sure.

Another great book of STAR TREK stories written by the fans. My only complaint is, thus far, in all of the TREK stories in this particular series, NOT ONE has featured a live Tasha Yar or has been placed in TNG's Season 01. Not only that, but I think that MAYBE there has been just one story to take place during VGR's first three seasons (before 07 of 09 came onto the show). Surely there must be stories that fit this criteria that have been written by the fans.

Anyway, on to my review(s).

(In order of appearance with a #3, #6, or #9 rating - #9 being the highest)


"The Smell of Dead Roses": #9. Awesome! Not only is the story engrossing, but the author uses the much-ignored Saavik in very believable ways. This story is so believable and well-written that one has to wonder if the author didn't perhaps use an incident(s) from their own past with their parents and applied it to Perrin's.

"The Doomsday Gambit": #9. Wonderful! Q and Kirk (I always knew that Q interacted with Humanity before Picard)!

"Empty": #3. I hate to say this, but at the point in time that this story was written (unless my calculations are WAY off, though they are not because Season 01 of TOS is their first year of their 5-year mission. Season 02 is their second, etc.) Kirk refers to the ENTERPRISE incident with Janet Lester as being at the end of their 5-year mission. The timeline is wrong. The incident with Janet Lester would have been at the end of their third year of duty, not their fifth. Besides, I really don't think that Kirk would have been as upset with the Lester incident as he seems to be in this story. Concerned, yes, but he would not throw his career away or make rash judgments because of it.


"Wired": #6. A good story, but wrapped up a little too neatly and quickly.

"A Dish Served Cold": #9. Awesome! The Borg being reduced to assimilating a Pakled!

"The Very Model": #3. Sorry, but Data is dead, no matter how much anyone wants him alive. Besides, the story is wrapped up WAY too conveniently.


"So a Horse Walks Into a Bar": #6. Nice story and fills in some bits in the VGR episode "Lifeline" too.

"Signal to Noise": #6. An OK story, but a little pointless.


"The Fate of Captain Ransom: #6. Good story (and the aliens that Ranson made contact with before his death are very interesting).

"A Taste of Spam": #9. GREAT and very funny! I can totally picture Janeway being furious at what is happening and Paris making jokes (the BEST scene is what the Doctor says to Paris when paris walks into sickbay!)! Besides, any of us that use a computer regularly knows what they are going through!

"Adjustments": #6. An OK story, though I have never been a fan of the Wildmans.

"The Day the Borg Came": #6. Good.


"The Dream": #6. A good companion to the episode "Similitude."

"Universal Chord: #6. A good story, though it rather is odd.

"You Are Not in Space": #6. A good story, but a little predictable in it's ending (Hoshi saving the day).


"Time Line": #6. An OK story, but WAY too similar to the Greg Cox's novels "To Reign in Hell" - though I am curious as to who tried to prevent (from the future) Khan and the other genetically manipulated children from surviving.

"Echoes: #9. Very original! I really liked it. Janeway destroying the Borg at the end of VGR's episode is WAY TOO simple! The Borg are still a menace even two or so centuries after VGR.

"Brigadoon": #6. A good story, but the idea of a planet disappearing and reappearing like Gaemes' is doing is too much like the DS9 episode "Meridian."

"Reborn": #3. I am not sure what the point of this story is. It seems like it is just a story in which to have Picard, Sisko, and Janeway together.

Star Trek Strange New Worlds 10 is like awating for the next tv episode.the stories are well written and also are the best chosen in a contest written by fans and up to becomming new authors them selves. I have all of the books in this series(1-10) This is the last book in the series. So if you have not read any of these, I reccomend that you read all of them. They are packed full of wonderful stories based on all the tv shows.

If you're looking for continuation that follows true to the original, but has a little different direction and perspective from our "regular writers", this is it. They've given the fans a chance to write their own short stories and some (most) are REALLY good...and fit in with the Star Trek books we love. I can't imagine ever letting the stories fade, and these books give a fresh perspective, yet keep us with the characters we've watched and loved over the years. Like a fresh twist of lemon!
