Star Trek: Time for Yesterday (1988) – A.C. Crispin

The Human Adventure continues… I settled into another Trek novel (there are a lot of them, and I would like to get through as many as possible, to see the kinds of stories and adventures that others have dreamed up for the stalwart crew of the USS Enterprise. This one is a bit of a…

Star Trek: 1974 to 1987 – The Wait
