The authors give us a fine story, set in the time between the apparent death of Captain Kirk and the beginning of the "Next Generation" series, with Hikaru Sulu as Captain of the Excelsior the hero of the day. We get enough connection with the original series characters to feel grounded, while getting to see some new and interesting characters, too.
If, like me, you had expected the second series to be one centering on Sulu as a captain, rather than making the immense jump in time that was made for the "Next Generation" series, this is a story you've been waiting for for a long time (close to 30 years now, I suppose.) I won't say that it was worth the wait; that would suggest that the wait was justified. But i will say that it's a good enough story that it should have been told long since.

I loved how Captain Sulu performed in "The Undiscovered Country" and now this book carries on with this very intense and believable incarnation of former Lieutenant Sulu from the Original Series. Great! And even though I grew up with the Original Series Star Trek, I also came to love TNG as well and, later, VOYAGER and ENTERPRISE. Being an avid fan of sci-fi in general, however, it would be an injustice on my part not to mention the many other old and new sci-fi works that both led me to Star Trek and which have forever forged my love for all sci-fi works: "Stranger in a Strange Land", "Puppet Masters", "Foundation", "2001", "2010", "Rendezvous with Rama", "Ringworld", all the "Star Trek" and "Star Wars" books, as well as books as new to the genre as "Advent of the Corps" and others.

A decent story detailing both Captain Sulu & Co. efforts to make peace with the Tholians and a "Space 1999" story of a pre-warp, Zeframe Cochrane-era asteroid outpost populated by humans catapulted away from earth orbit and eventually into another galaxy through a trans-dimensional rift.
On the upside, the explorations/revelations concerning the Tholian race (a largely neglected alien race dating back to the Original Series) are great and the evolution of the outpost survivors and the process of relating the two storylines to one another is intriguing. On the downside, the authors take a little too long to tell this story and it could/should have been more concise.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Star Trek: The Lost Era 2298 The Sundered written by Michael A. Martin and Andy Mangels is a character driven action-adventure novel. This is the third book written by this pair of authors and is the best yet in this genre.
As stated in the book, this story is set in the year 2298, five years after the presumed death of Captain James T. Kirk aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise-B in Star Trek Generations, and sixty-six years before the launch of the Enterprise-D in "Encounter at Farpoint." Now, we get to see what happens after Kirk and prior to Picard as Captain Hikaru Sulu takes command of U.S.S. Excelsior in an action character driven book that keeps the readers interest piqued.
The book is divided into ten sections giving the reader background to the characters within the story and it further carries the reader through the whole of the book. Making for an easy transition. There are space battles as the Tholians weave a web of vengence against the Neyel that have been approacing Tholian space via an interspacial rift, a tear in the fabric of space that allows great distances to be traveled in relatively short periods of times. This is the same rift in space that has trapped the Defiant from ST: TOS and later recovered by the ST Corps of Engineers.
We read about some of our favorites from the older Trek novelizations including Chekov, Janice Rand, Christine Chapel, Tuvok and Akaar as they interact with the story. Interlaced within the pages of this book are flashbacks to scenes of past adventures spicing up the story and jogging the reader's memory. The Tholians and the Neyel are the featured aliens in this novel.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This novel is filled with cliches. Everyone is doing involved in something that is 'their last best chance' at something. There is a trial by combat, the annoying ambassador, the alien misunderstanding. It's all been done before, only better.
I thought it would be interesting to read a novel about Sulu as a captain, but in this one he is simply a cardboard cutout who smiles or grins at everything. No characterization worth reading.
Also, the story is told in third-person 'removed'. The only way to appreciate this annoyance is to watch an episode of the PBS kids show Calliou before reading this book. In the cartoon the narrator says things like "Calliou didn't want to take his medicine, but he didn't want to feel bad either." This is exactly how this novel is written. You don't read the story directly as it happens, no, you read a narration of the story (e.g. "Sulu didn't want to go to do something, but he felt he had to.") I felt like I was reading a book written for grade schoolers.
The big problem, however, is the stories logic and flow. At one point Sulu 'figures out' who the aliens are. How does he do this? Who knows, the narrator doesn't really explain but somehow he puts a couple of obscure facts together and amazes the reader with a warp-leap of logic. The whole story is like this, and it disappoints greatly.
In a nutshell, you feel like you are reading a loose translation of a story outline without actually being allowed to get into the story. Sulu does smile though.
Read any of the Shatner Trek novels, or New Frontiers novels for a much more enjoyable reading experience.
