Star Trek: The Captain’s Daughter (1995) – Peter David

Space, the final frontier… It’s been a while since I’ve read a classic Trek novel from Simon & Schuster, but like an old friend you just fall right back into conversation with, I dove wholeheartedly into the next novel in the series, The Captain’s Daughter, and enjoyed every minute of it. This was definitely an…

Star Trek 4K – The Human Adventure Continues…

So much Trek to get through! Paramount Pictures delivers the goods with their 4K releases this week. I remember where I was the first time I saw each film, and I was a recently turned eight-year-old who sat in the theatre in CFB Borden as Christmas drew closer, and I sat and loved every minute…

Lord of Illusions (1995) – Clive Barker

I remember discovering the writings of Clive Barker, and how his writing actually got under my skin, and freaked me out a bit. He definitely won a fan in me, and then the film, Hellraiser, wow! And while Nightbreed garnered itself a bit of a cult following, Lord of Illusions never seemed to, which bums…

Star Trek: Discovery – Desperate Hours (2017) – David Mack

Back in 2017, Star Trek launched it’s first live action series since the finale of Enterprise in 2005. As always there have been tie-in books allowing various authors to explore the universe depicted on big and small screens, as well as the variety of characters inhabiting it. Some to a more successful degree than others….

Star Trek: The Original 4 Movie Collection – 4K Review

Star Trek has been a part of my life since I was a young boy in Borden, Ontario. It was the late 70s when I first discovered the series on Saturday mornings, my first episode was a rerun of Miri, and I loved the show every time I found it on one of the three…

Mission: Impossible (1966) – A Spool There Was, and The Carriers

Ellis Marcus spins a story for Rollin (Martin Landau) and Cinnamon (Barbara Bain) this week with A Spool There Was. First airing on 12 November, 1966, Dan (Steven Hill) recruits the pair to head to an island country in an effort to recover a wire recording that was hidden by an agent that was being…

Star Trek: The Better Man (1995) – Howard Weinstein

Space, the final frontier… Don’t be fooled by the cover art, this story takes place a couple of years after the events of The Motion Picture, and apparently the burgundy uniform jackets are in place. The story itself, however, if entertaining, well-crafted, and very much a true Trek tale, and it puts Dr. McCoy front…

Star Trek: Federation (1994) – Judith & Garfield Reeves-Stevens

This week’s journey where no one has gone before is an epic novel that combines adventures with the crew of James T. Kirk’s Enterprise, with those of Jean-Luc Picard’s tying it in with the life of Zefram Cochrane, and the efforts of one of Colonel Green’s cadre, Colonel Thorsen. With a wrap-around story that takes…

Star Trek: Crossroad (1994) – Barbara Hambley

Space, the final frontier… As mentioned in previous reviews of Trek books, they can’t all be winners. As much as I wanted to enjoy this one, it was definitely a bit of a slog to get through. Hambley penned a dense story that doesn’t have the flow of a Trek tale, though with some changes,…
