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: 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 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: 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….
