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…

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: 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…

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: 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: The Kelvin Timeline (2009 – 2016)

Space… There was a lot of it between the end of Star Trek: Enterprise in 2005 and the next Human Adventure. For the first time since 1987, there were no Star Trek series or films in production. It was strange for a number of fans, though a large percentage of them realised that it was…

Star Trek: Enterprise (2003) – The Shipment, and Twilight

Captain’s log: date unknown Chris Black and Brent V. Friedman pen this episode of the Xindi arc that first debuted on 29 October, 2003. Archer (Scott Bakula) discovers a mining operation that seems to be compiling resources and components for the Xindi weapon that is being prepared for Earth. He, Reed (Dominc Keating) and Hayes…

Star Trek: The Pandora Principle (1990) – Carolyn Clowes

This week’s Star Trek book from Pocket Books was a story that I didn’t realize I needed. It’s set between the events of The Motion Picture and The Wrath of Khan during the second five year mission. We learn the backstory for Spock’s protégé Saavik, and how she was saved from a planet known as…

Star Trek: Rules of Engagement (1990) – Peter Morwood

It’s been a while since I haven’t been entertained by one of the Pocket Book Trek novels. But Peter Morwood’s effort, Rules of Engagement left me a little cold. I remember buying this one when I was younger. I even remember when, I had bought it to read during my transit across the country back…

Star Trek: The Kobayashi Maru (1989) – Julia Ecklar

With a framing story set after the events of The Motion Picture, but with the uniforms introduced in The Wrath of Khan, so sometime during the second big mission, The Kobayashi Maru is more a collection of short stories as each member in a damaged shuttle tells a tale of their encounter with the famous…
