The Sundered (Star Trek: The Lost Era, 2298)
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.

Janet Kagan does an outstanding job in her portrayal of Kirk & Co., the creation and inclusion of the wholly new and marvelous "guest star" character of Dr. Evan Wilson (perhaps more accurately referred to as Tail-Kinker!), and her conception and depiction of the alien civilizations, worlds, and cultures.
The story is exceptional on many levels. It entertains as an adventure/science fiction story seasoned with humor, history,… Read more
