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…

Star Trek: The Fearful Summons (1995) – Denny Martin Flinn

Space, the final frontier… I take up the journey with Kirk and company again this week, and was delighted in how most of The Fearful Summons read. It’s a fast read, and has the pacing of a screenplay, and even reading it, you can tell what things would be edited out of the film, or…

Star Trek: Recovery (1995) – J.M. Dillard

Space the final frontier… J.M. Dillard delivers the fourth and final instalment of The Lost Years saga this week, a series of novels she started that cover the time frame between the end of The Original Series and The Motion Picture. This time out, pieces are being moved into position for where we find them…

Star Trek: Traitor Winds (1994) – L.A. Graf

This week’s Trek novel takes us back to the The Lost Years, those years set between the end of the Enterprise’s original five year mission, and the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture. While some of the crew are wandering around in their TOS uniforms, the new uniforms are present as well. This time…

Star Trek: Sarek (1994) – A.C. Crispin

A.C. Crispin, who delivered the wonderful Yesterday’s Son saga early in the Pocket Books series cranked out a giant Trek novel for 1994 that gave us insight into Spock’s father, Sarek. While also continuing the story of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701A. This adventure takes place shortly after the events of The Undiscovered Country, so despite…

Star Trek: The Patrian Transgression (1994) – Simon Hawke

Space, the final frontier… It’s time to continue my travels with the stalwart crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise as I join them on their original five year missions to seek out new life, and new civilisations. This time, author Simon Hawke delivers a story that fits well into the style of The Original Series with…

Star Trek: Firestorm (1994) – L.A. Graf

Space, the final frontier… More voyages this week with the Enterprise, call numbers NCC-1701, in Firestorm, that sees the supporting characters, especially Uhura a chance to shine. Set after the events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, but after the new burgundy uniform jackets came into circulation. The Enterprise has come to the planet Rakatan,…

Star Trek: The Great Starship Race (1993) – Diane Carey

Space, the final frontier… My travels with the Enterprise this week take place during the original five year mission as the Federation starship is invited to take place in a race sponsored by a newly discovered species who is to join the United Federation of Planets. But while the ships are gathering there is another…

Star Trek: Shadows on the Shadow (1993) – Michael Jan Friedman

Set shortly after the events of Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Shadows on the Sun explores some of the backstory of Dr. Leonard H. McCoy, a character that has become one of my favourites over the years. It’s interesting, as a child, and teen, Kirk was always the character for me. But as I…

Star Trek: Windows on a Lost World (1993) – V.E. Mitchell

Space, the final frontier… Not all the voyages of the starship Enterprise are going to entertain me, sometimes they are going to miss the mark, and for me, this one definitely felt like it missed the mark. There’s some big sci-fi ideas in the story, but it doesn’t feel like it’s told in a Star…

Star Trek: The Starship Trap (1993) – Mel Gilden

Set during the original five year mission of the U.S.S. Enterprise, Mel Gilden’s Trek novel is one I really enjoyed. He totally has the characters down, and not only could I hear the characters in my head, I could see everything in my mind’s eye playing out like an episode. Captain Kirk is less than…

Star Trek: Shell Game (1993) – Melissa Crandall

It took me a little longer to get into this one than I would have liked, but once I was into it, I really enjoyed this, the next novel in the Pocket Books series of Star Trek novels. Set after the events of The Motion Picture, but far enough along in the timeline to have…
