Review: Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many

Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many by Michael A. MartinMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This was an interesting read, and it definitely adds some more context to STO's Undine arc (which made the Undine Infiltration in the game make much more sense. The book is told from the lens of Jake Sisko who is interviewing many well-known (and not so well-known) characters in the Star Trek universe about

On an accolade roll! -- well... I was...

I was in a bit of a roll with accolades on Star Trek Online; Accolades I hand't earned on the first play through.  For some of these missions I haven't gone back to them in years.  That said, I think I am done with the accolade hunt for now.  Some are event-specific accolades (Summer event, or Arena of Sompek) that come around once in a while (summer even should be here "soon"), and

Review: Patterns of Interference

Patterns of Interference by Christopher L. BennettMy rating: 5 of 5 stars What bums me out the most about this book is that there is no "Star Trek Enterprise will continue..." at the end of the book. I wonder if this series will come back in the future.Anyway - even if it is the last book to come out (certainly hope not), this was a rather fun book to read. I was hoping that Trip would come

Review: Live by the Code

Live by the Code by Christopher L. BennettMy rating: 4 of 5 stars A good conclusion to the "ware saga" (or so it seems). Of note in this book, we see Archer coming around to the Vulcan's "logic" of non-interference (aka, the "prime directive") based on the events that happened with the Saurians. We also see Trip seriously looking to take down Section 31 (which we know doesn't happen

Review: Uncertain Logic

Uncertain Logic by Christopher L. BennettMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This novel continues with the parade of worlds that are joining the federation: in this book we see the Deltans, and we continue an exploration of those "Ware" space stations which we originally saw on screen in Enterprise. Meanwhile on Vulcan the Kirshara is stolen and people try to use it to overthrow the new Vulcan government.

Review: Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ghosts

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Ghosts by Zander CannonMy rating: 3 of 5 stars Not a bad story. Basically a story of a planet who wants to join the Federation, but there are two rival factions on that planet (basically a no-no for membership in the Federation). One side invents a device that moves you into another sub-space type of universe (basically looks like the Matrix's loading

Review: Tower of Babel

Tower of Babel by Christopher L. BennettMy rating: 4 of 5 stars This was a good continuation of the first book in the series. Here the federation is encouraging the aligned systems of Rigel to join the federation. I always thought that the Rigelians were a homogenous society, but apparently not. Also interesting that they were currently ruled by mobster families. Overall an interesting story,

Review: A Choice of Futures

A Choice of Futures by Christopher L. BennettMy rating: 5 of 5 stars This was a good start to the Rise of the Federation series. There is an interesting description of where the TOS uniform colors came from, an overview of what's happening to the fleet, the growing pains of getting different alien peoples to work together, and so on. On top of that, the federation is already being seen as

Review: The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm

The Romulan War: To Brave the Storm by Michael A. MartinMy rating: 5 of 5 stars A satisfying end to the Earth-Romulan war. When all is said and done Trip is still out in the shadows, Archer is now a commodore, and the Vulcans, Telaraties, and Andorians finally came back to the table. Archer is hinted at becoming president of the Federation one day. There was also a nice little epilogue years

Got some more accolades (STO)

It's been a while since I played Star Trek Online with the intent to be on the accolade hunt.  I actually I thought I had most of them, but then I came across a list created by one of the game's other players and saw that I was missing a considerable amount.  After clearing out the retired accolades (ones that you can't get any longer), and the ones that you can in theory get, but you need
