From the Publisher
The crew of the Nautilus, a battered Starship of mysterious origin, is beamed aboard the Starship EnterpriseTM. The group claims they are freedom fighters from the future working to save the Federation from the Consilium, a group of corrupt power-seekers.
The Nautilus crew members then seize control of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and a Starship from the future arrives to arrest the renegades. Kirk must separate his true allies from those who wish to destroy the Federation.
Top Customer Reviews
I liked this book for several reasons:
1. The skeleton crew of the aging starship are the most interesting characters in the series since the first and last appearance of Dr.Evan Wilson in Uhuru's Song.
2. We see the crew of the Enterprise acting like a crew. Teamwork on all levels. It's not just the bridge crew, Scott, and Bones.
3. The future "propulsion" source is an example, in a crude metaphorical sense, of how a weed is any plant people have not yet found a use for. Except this "plant" is holy terror to the Federation of Kirk's time.
4. The Enterprise crew member who will choose the path for the future will do so with good intentions. An example of unintended consequences.
To compare your taste with mine, these are some of my favorites: My Enemy, My Ally / Final Reflection / How Much for Just the Planet? / Uhuru's Song / Ice Trap / The Romulan Way / Killing Time
All in all, it was not that bad. There are worse Star Trek novels out there.
