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: 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: A Flag Full of Stars (1991) – Brad Ferguson

The Human Adventure continues as I dive into the next Star Trek novel released by Pocket Books. This one falls into the sub collection known as The Lost Years, filling in the time between The Original Series and The Motion Picture. The first book was simply known as The Lost Years, written by J.M Dillard,…

Star Trek: The Lost Years (1989) – J.M. Dillard

So what happened to James T. Kirk, Spock, McCoy and the rest after the close of their five year mission and before the events depicted in The Motion Picture? This week, I start to find out with the next instalment in the Pocket Books series. I think I have read this one before, as I…

Star Trek: Double, Double (1989) – Michael Jan Friedman

Space, the final frontier… My ongoing voyages with the starship Enterprise continue this week with the next non-canon novel in the Pocket Books series. Set during the original five year mission, this novel is set a few months after the events of The Original Series episode “What Little Girls Are Made Of?” Captain James T….

Star Trek: The Three Minute Universe (1988) – Barbara Paul

Space, the final frontier… I dug into another Trek novel this week, hey, there’s a lot of them, so they’ll probably be appearing on here fairly regular, I haven’t read this one since it first came out in ’88, and I don’t remember being a big fan of it when I first joined Captain Kirk…

Star Trek: Bloodthirst (1987) – J.M. Dillard

Captain James T. Kirk and the stalwart crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise take on a Trek-verse version of the vampire legend in this novel written by J.M Dillard. Set during the third season of The Original Series the Enterprise responds to a distress call from the remote Federation outpost of Tanis. What they discover is…
