Review: Star Trek: Mission's End

Star Trek: Mission's End by Ty Templeton My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is probably the 4th ending to the original series that I've read or seen on screen (through some fan film.)  Interesting. It keeps with the Strange New Worlds, New Life, and New Civilizations theme.  The mission aliens were not humanoid, they weren't even warp-capable on their own, but

Review: Star Trek Voyager: To Lose the Earth

To Lose the Earth by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars That was a good 'finale' for the Voyager relaunch series of books.  I am not sure if this is a series finale or a season finale, but I am curious to see where things go from here.  It's interesting to see the connections that ultimately make their way to star trek discovery, with species 10-C (which

Star Trek Online: The Pathyaeger

 Here's another April Fools... this time from Star Trek Online, a mashup of the Pathfinder and the Yaeger (and yes, I'd fly this... if it weren't exploding when you first set foot on it 😂)From the announcement:The Pathyeager was the brainchild of Starfleet’s first Pakled ship designer, Nahamcam [Nuh-ham-kam], inspired by the old Dominion War-era USS Yeager and the Clumpships of the 2380s.Splicing

Review: Star Trek: Voyager: Architects of Infinity

Architects of Infinity by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars OK, this one ended in a "WTF" moment for me?  Eh... whut?On the plus side, I did remember the Kriotians from TNG's "the perfect mate," which made for an interesting sub-plot in the book.  The biodomes on a dead planet were an interesting main plot, but OMG.  You find an abandoned paradise?

Review: Star Trek Voyager: A Pocket Full of Lies

A Pocket Full of Lies by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars That was pretty interesting!  Tuvok comes back for a special mission and gets an unexpected breakthrough for the stuff he's dealing with.  There's another Janeway (how many of them are around?!) and yes...there are temporal shenanigans happening...so the Krenim aren't that far behind.

Review: Star Trek Voyager: Atonement

Atonement by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Good to see a conclusion to the Paris family court drama, which also parallels the conclusion of the Janeway tribunal drama.  Overall, this was a good story.  For the Voyager kids who've entered the academy, it's also interesting to see that college...errr..the academy isn't the only path forward.From the

Review: Kingdom Of The Damned

Kingdom Of The Damned by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars A collection of stories where Q is being Q and turns the entire crew (except for Data) into Klingons just to mess with them.  Of course, the Enterprise is playing taxi service to a bunch of aliens that don't like Klingons, so Q is getting his laughs in.  Not bad, overall.  I think

Star Trek Online: Shadow's Advance

 For the past few weeks, I've been playing the newest episode in the current mirror universe story arc, and the latest TFO (TaskForce Operation) to get my hands on this year's anniversary ship giveaway.  For free-to-play players, cryptic really gives away quite a lot of free ships (to those who grind anyway).I was surprised to see Janeway (and mirror Janeway) in this episode, and I loved

Review: DC Star Trek: TNG: The Pilot

DC Star Trek: TNG: The Pilot by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars Pretty good follow-up.  This collection collects DC TNG 7-12. At least in this one, everyone's not a bodybuilder and the characters seem more true to themselves. I read these separately, but it's easier to mark a collection than to add 50 different entries into Goodreads :-). View

Review: Acts of Contrition

Acts of Contrition by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars I rather enjoyed this one. You start off on a diplomatic and negotiation meeting, only to find yourself wanted by Delta Quadrant powers... I am, so far, enjoying the episodic nature of the relaunch novels. I hope that they come to a smooth conclusion, with no dangling threads.From the blurb:Admiral Kathryn
