In an episode that foreshadows the events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, the Federation and the Klingons engage in a historic meeting aimed at burying the hatchet between once determined adversaries. In an effort to facilitate the peace, Klingon High Council Member Gorkon (in the years prior to his ascendancy to Chancellor) dispatches an old nemesis of Captain Kirk to enlist Kirk & Co. on a mission. The mission: to free Starfleet officers considered MIA by the Federation but who are actually being held as POW's by the Klingons after they were taken captive years ago at the behest of the incumbent albeit corrupt Klingon regime.
The author, a former military officer does an outstanding job of capturing the camaraderie and loyalty inherent in personnel who serve together. The POW camp scenes are done extremely well. In the end though, I was left wanting more and I felt a little cheated that more was not divulged concerning the mysterious differences between the two types of Klingons. I would have appreciated more information on how one group overcame the other and vice versa and how once "Original Series" Klingon characters are changed into the more current "Movie/Next Generation" Klingons with the pronounced forehead ridges. The author's inability or unwillingness to address these matters more fully - especially when he tap dances around these issues throughout the story - flaws an otherwise commendable entry.

It's about time. I used to love the Star Trek novels to the point that every other book I read was Star Trek. But lately, it seems that they are just cranking them out to capitalize on the franchize without any concern for quality. Many of the recent novels have been poorly written, with characters that don't act or speak like their on-screen counterparts. Most of the books are written by the same few names who, it's obvious, have grown tired of the work but still want the paychecks. It's gotten to the point that I rarely buy the Star Trek books, and then only if I can pick them up used. And even then, most of the newer ones aren't worth the quarter spent at a garage sale.
But In the Name of Honor is different. Dayton Ward isn't a writer looking to make a quick buck. He's not an author who's bordom shows through with every new Star Trek book he spits out. He's a fan who genuinely cares about the series, and it really shows in this novel. Kirk was Kirk. Sulu was Sulu. And the Klingons were both believable and multi-faceted, not just the flat one-dimensional villains that often pop up in these pages. The plot was well-conceived and Ward keeps you turning the pages.
I've pretty much given up on Star Trek, and only read this book because it was given to me as a gift. Most of my attention has lately focused on quality young adult books, like Harry Potter and King Fortis the Brave written by authors who, like Dayton Ward, really love what they are doing and it shows in their work. But if a few more books like this are published, instead of the gruel that Pocket Books has lately been trying to force-feed us, I may start buying these books again.

I�ve been out of the Star Trek novel business for awhile. I used to buy them religiously, but they just never seemed to be worth the money to me. I was at the library recently, though, and there were a bunch of more recent Star Trek books there, so I checked them out.
The first book I looked at was In the Name of Honor, by Dayton Ward. The first thing that struck me was the dynamic cover. The Klingon war ship swooping over the canyon, firing away, was just beautiful. The insides were pretty good, too. I think you should probably be a Star Trek fan, or at least follow the series a bit, before you pick this up. The book just wallows in continuity.
The basic plot is that there is a peace conference going on between the Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. They have been hostile toward each other since before the time of the original Trek series. About six years ago, a Federation ship was attacked by a Klingon cruiser. Prisoners were taken, but it was done secretly. Only a few high-ranking people knew about them. The Federation thought the ship was destroyed with no survivors. Now, with the peace talks happening, word has reached other Klingons that these prisoners exist. The Empire is undergoing some radical philosophical changes (in series terms, they�re moving from the evil-doers of the Original Series to the honourbound Klingons of the Next Generation TV series), and the taking of these prisoners and holding them secretly is not honourable. The original higher-ups would make the problem go away if it was ever discovered.
Koloth, one of Kirk�s Klingon enemies from the episode �The Trouble with Tribbles,� brings this information to Captain Kirk, at the request of Councilor Gorkon.

As someone who has read a lot of Star Trek novels over the years, and reviewed quite a few, I find it sad that the same old criticisms still have to be said. Anyone who is writing in this genre needs to be fully aware of the history of Star Trek and must write within the established character and event guidelines. Speculative stories that are clearly at odds with 'real' Star Trek are almost worthless. As evidence I offer the horrendous prequel "Enterprise", which has more holes than mouldy Swiss cheese and stinks almost as bad. Here we have a novel that claims to be set between STV and STVI, but for all intents and purposes is just a [bad] rehash of STVI. Doesn't it strike anyone as odd that if Kirk and his crew had been through an adventure like this they might have reacted just a tad differently in "The Undiscovered Country" ?!!! Of course they would have, which highlights what a pointless rehash this is. The irony here is that Dayton Ward is quite a good writer, but he should have enough faith in his abilities to write an original adventure, not ride on the coat tails of other authors' ideas.
