Top Customer Reviews

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In my reviews of Classic Star Trek novels, it must be understood that I adhere to the original canon as invisioned by Gene Roddenberry, and not the "Star Trek" universe accepted by Rick Berman and company.
I generally rate a classic novel thus:
Adherence to Canon -- does this novel adhere to the vision of the original Star Trek?
Again, seems to.
Believability (within the confines of 23rd century Star Trek viability) -- is this novel well-plotted and well written? Can I picture this novel or imagine myself in it?
Yes, it's a pretty vivid story.
Coherence and Consistency -- does this novel internally consistent? Is it consistent with other Star Trek novels by the same author? Is it consistent with what is known of the CLASSIC Star Trek universe?
Yes, especially with the author's previous novel.
Mitigating Factors -- pluses or minuses which dramatically affect the enjoyment of this book
Again, like "Dreadnaught", this book is not a brilliant work of literature, but it's a fun read and certainly a welcome contribution to the Classic Star Trek canon.

This book is a sequel to the novel "Dreadnought"; it is somewhat better than that novel, in that the plot is a bit more original, if still an offshoot of the same old worn-out concept. Like Dreadnought, it is rather untraditional as a Star Trek novel, in that the main character is a young officer just out of Starfleet academy, and we only see Kirk, Spock, etc, through her eyes. It is an interesting and worthwhile variation, almost making up for the unoriginality of the basic storylines; Piper is transparently a female equivalent of the young Kirk, with just as much talent and potential as Kirk had as a youth, and just as much inexperience. So in a way, watching her adventures has the advantage of giving us some insight into the early development of the Kirk character, without the disadvantage that "flashback" stories have of being restricted to events that fit into what we know of Kirk's history, and without the guarantee that he will come through successfully (after all, we KNOW Kirk got through those early trials, but there's no guarantee that the next young hotshot officer will).
There's something of the feel of juvenile fiction to these stories, with the young main character saving the day repeatedly, but to her credit, Ms. Carey doesn't limit the usual main characters to the sidelines; they take their full place in the plot, and are as amazingly competent as they should be. There's simply the addition of another main character, taking her turn at saving the day. Also to Ms. Carey's credit, she resists the temptation to include a romantic entaglement between Kirk and her heroine, a concept which would clearly be out of place, but which many authors would fail to resist (there's a talented, attractive female character; quick, have Kirk seduce her, or at least try.

I liked this book better than Dreadnought, probably because Carey delved into Piper's complicated relationship with the fascinating Sarda. Her Vulcan friend is interesting as he is not a "typical" Vulcan; he's a country-bumpkin with a serious flaw, a genius for the wrong type of technical development which is almost always misused by the military-types trying to rule the Federation. I loved the camraderie of the characters, and the discussions of the dilemnas of Command. Read it.
