Review: Desperate Hours

Desperate Hours Desperate Hours by David Mack
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Interesting story set one year before the "vulcan hello" pilot for the series. It includes the Enterprise and Pike (and Spock). Having seen Anson Mount as Pike really helps visualize this story in my mind's eye. There are some inconsistencies with the series - e.g., Saru's planet referred to "Kelpia" instead of "Kaminar" and getting the sense that Kelpiens are subterranean species.

Overall the story of fighting some ancient dreadnought was interesting. I feel like the Burnham-Spock bonding sub-plot gives those two characters a better history than what was presented on-screen in Season 1, but it feels a little incongruent with Season 2.
