Star Wars: Dark Force Rising (1992) – Timothy Zahn

In 1992, Timothy Zahn took us back into the slowly expanding universe of Star Wars with the second book in his Thrawn cycle, following on the heels of the previous year’s Heir to the Empire. Continuing the story that is set five years after The Return of the Jedi, the heroes of the rebellion are…

Star Trek: Best Destiny (1992) – Diane Carey

Author Diane Carey pens a follow-up to her novel, The Final Frontier, as we head out into space again with Captain Robert April (a character I’ve quite grown to like through his appearances in The Animated Series, and the novels), of the U.S.S. Enterprise, George Kirk, and Kirk’s sixteen year old, problem-filled teen, Jimmy Kirk….

Star Trek: Death Count (1992) – L.A. Graf

Sometimes a Trek book just works for me, and this one totally did. Set between The Motion Picture, and The Wrath of Khan, but featuring the new burgundy uniform jackets, the story despite featuring Kirk heavily on the cover, focuses more on Chekov, Sulu and Uhura, to my total delight. Their friendship is explored, from…

Star Trek: Sanctuary (1992) – John Vornholt

Set during The Original Series, this week’s Trek book is fairly run of the mill and doesn’t do anything exceptional with our characters, but it makes for what would feel like a fairly solid two-part episode. The Enterprise is pursuing a pirate through uncharted space, and when it enters the atmosphere of a planet known,…

Star Trek: Ice Trap (1992) – L.A. Graf

There are times. Not often, but every now and then, that despite my love for the subject matter, I can’t get into a book. This is what happened with my latest foray in to the Star Trek novels. I loved the sound of it, I’m enjoying my time with Kirk and company as I go…

Star Trek: Probe (1992) – Margaret Wander Bonanno

Supposedly set a few weeks after the events of The Voyage Home, Probe is the next book in PocketBooks Star Trek series. I personally like to push it to just after The Final Frontier, because the Enterprise seems to be working without any real problems. The probe after reestablishing contact with the cetacean lifeforms on…

Star Trek: Faces of Fire (1992) – Micheal Jan Friedman

When I read the blurb for this book, the next in the PocketBook Star Trek series, I was a little anxious as to how they were going to walk the line of having a young, ten year-old David Marcus interact with Kirk and company during their original five year mission and how Kirk’s interaction with…

Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1992) – J.M. Dillard

This week’s Trek novel is the film adaptation of the last big screen voyage of the crew of The Original Series, J.M. Dillard adapts the screenplay and fills it out with some additional character building scenes which add some nice depth to the events that unfold. Captain James T. Kirk and the majority of his…
