“Star Trek #17” Review by Trekcentral.net

Trekcentral.net has added a new review for ‘s “Star Trek #17”:

Galactic war is imminent and seemingly inevitable. Romulan, Cardassian, and Federation forces are struggling for control in Star Trek #17, out today from IDW Publishing. Over the course of the Savage World of Glass and Bone arc, Captain Sisko and the USS Theseus have fallen out of favor with the warmongering Tzenkethi. Evidently, however, the worst is yet to come. The one and only course of action Starfleet is willing to authorize is far from a model solution.

Out today: “Star Trek #17“, by .

Galactic war is imminent in the penultimate issue of arc three of the Eisner-nominated Star Trek series.With Federation, Romulan, and Cardassian forces all vying for leverage over the Tzenkethi war fleet, Captain Sisko is left with no choice but to request official assistance from Starfleet after he and his crew have fallen out of favor with the warmongering reptilian species. However, the proposed solution-and only option Starfleet is willing to approve-is questionable, with the potential of endangering not only the Theseus crew…but the galaxy at large.

“Star Trek: Strange New Worlds: The High Country” Review by Startrekadventure.blogspot.com

Startrekadventure.blogspot.com has added a new review for ‘s “Star Trek: Strange New Worlds: The High Country”:

Firstly, I have to say the the author does a good job of presenting the crew in a manner which was recognisable from how they appeared on the series. If I had to be picky about the characters then it was because they kept being referred to by multiple different names. For example, Number One is also called Una, Una Chin-Riley or just Chin-Riley throughout the novel which can slow you down as your mind catches up and remembers that is the same person. I appreciate, they are all acceptable names but I wish we could just stick with one.

In today’s episode, Robin Lefler learns her mother is still alive, but first Soleta has to finish checking out the situation on Zondar, and meanwhile Selar is preggers, and she and Burgoyne agree the fun times should end there, so why does that leave Selar feeling so empty? But the warp core also has a bun in the oven, and also Shelby swears she’s not in love, Robin lands in the friend zone, Mark McHenry feels used, and—wait, what? I’m already out of room for the intro paragraph? All this and more in Fire on High, the book that doesn’t forget its Southern hospitality.

“Star Trek: The Unsettling Stars” Review by Treklit.com

Treklit.com has added a new review for ‘s “Star Trek: The Unsettling Stars”:

This novel was a long time coming. Originally written around the time of the first “Kelvin Timeline” film, Star Trek (2009), the publication of this and three other novels were delayed indefinitely. The reason for the delay? According to the powers that be, there was concern that events depicted in the novels might contradict future plans for films set in the Kelvin Timeline. Then, a decade later, two of the shelved novels were resurrected, and apparently the prior concerns were no longer an issue. This one, by Alan Dean Foster, was originally titled Refugees. The novel was given a name change, and according to the author, a small part of the ending was revised, but other than that, The Unsettling Stars is relatively unchanged from the original draft that was turned in a decade earlier.

Billed as a ‘lost episode’ of sorts this is another really strong entry in the current line of Trek comics. Antos and Real are fantastic editors and each one of these mini-series has felt exactly like the show whose world it’s set in. In this case, Chen’s script gives the surprisingly large DS9 cast a lot to do and cleverly balances whimsy with the horrors of the Dominion War.

“Star Trek: The Lost Era: Catalyst of Sorrows” Review by Atboundarysedge.com

Atboundarysedge.com has added a new review for ‘s “Star Trek: The Lost Era: Catalyst of Sorrows”:

The Star trek literary canon is chock-full of crossovers. Without the need to manage actor’s fees, budgets, and timelines, pretty much any crew can meet any other. The obvious examples are series such as Destiny or Typhon Pact, which regularly saw crossovers between The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager. On a smaller scale there is Greg Cox’s No Time Like the Past, which sees Seven of Nine thrown through time to the era of Kirk and co. These crossovers can be fun and entertaining, but oftentimes they don’t make a whole lot of sense. This, however, is not the case with Catalyst of Sorrows, which boasts perhaps the finest one-off multi-series crossover I’ve seen to date.

I love the concept of the Lost Era. A set of standalone novels that fill the gap between the end of the Original Series and the start of the Next Generation. There’s plenty of space here for good storytelling. All those future historical events that were only ever referenced offhand. The origins of all those much-loved characters. The fates of those who went missing along the way. Telling the story of the Enterprise-C is a great idea, as all we know if it we glean from a single episode. This book really had everything going for it. Unfortunately, it didn’t go anywhere with those opportunities.

One of the curiosities of Star Trek is that it asserts Jean-Luc Picard to be fifty-nine years of age when he is promoted to captain of the Enterprise-D. Significantly older than Patrick Stewart was at the time of filming, though the inimitable actor certainly carried off the role well. What this meant for the literary canon is that there was a significant amount of backstory to develop. A large portion of that life was chronicled in Christopher L. Bennett’s The Buried Age, a book which built heavily on the work established by Michael Jan Friedman in his six-volume Stargazer series. It is the first Stargazer novel, Gauntlet, that brings us here today.
