Review: Kobayashi Maru

Kobayashi Maru Kobayashi Maru by Michael A. Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I actually liked this book more than I thought I would. The description from Memory Alpha is "Captain Jonathan Archer's Enterprise and Captain Erika Hernandez' Columbia become embroiled in the shocking events that became the infamous Starfleet Academy no-win scenario." I always took the Kobayashi Maru to be a theoretical simulation (something concocted by Starfleet researchers and instructors for training purposes), but it's interesting to see that it was in-fact based on real (in-universe) history. I also like that at the end everything's not honky-dory. Archer 'wins' in the no-win scenario, but is about to lose some of his bridge crew over it. Oh yeah, Trip is still a spy.
