4.0 out of 5 stars story on a page: Collision Course review, Feb. 19 2010
This review is from: Star Trek: Academy: Collision Course (Mass Market Paperback)
Overall Rating

An unexpectedly intricate mystery is woven neatly alongside the themes of teenage rebellion, institutional corruption, and the slightly overdramatized flashbacks to the murky past of a young Jimmy Kirk. The struggles both teens have to overcome - Spock's search for his place between the Vulcan and human races, and Kirk's reluctant admiration for the very institution he has grown up to resent - urges along character development and the beginnings of a mutually supportive friendship. I am quite disappointed of the less than satisfying portrayals of female characters, as well as the lack of PoC characters, but casual readers should have no problems enjoying this read. I should also mention that, while there are ample descriptions of high-tech settings and props, I found this novel quite accessible for non-sci-fi fans as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Would have made a better movie than the other prequel., Sept. 4 2012

This review is from: Star Trek: Academy: Collision Course (Mass Market Paperback)
I enjoyed this prequel to the Star Trek years even more than the movie that was eventually made with a similar theme. Shatner and the Reeves-Stevens collaboration is pure gold. You see those three names on the same book and you can bank on a great adventure with some thought provoking twists and great characters. Loved it!
