Captain Mackenzie Calhoun has often been accused of playing God, but he has never faced off against real gods -- until now. As Captain Kirk did before him, Calhoun has encountered beings of unnatural power and abilities verging on godhood, and who claim to be the very individuals who inspired the Greek, Roman, Norse, and, other pantheons from Earth culture.

Star Trek: New Frontier: Gods Above is book 13 in ordinary time and the 19th chapter of what I like to call Star Trek: The Prime-Time Soap. The story picks up from where Being Human left off. Lt Mark McHenry and acting-Ensign Morgan Lefler Primus are dead (or are they?) after a vicious attack from the god-like Beings lead by Artemis. Si Cwan and Kallinda are in danger from the Danteri and their secret patron Anubis after Cwan discovers thei real motivations for promising a renewed Thallonian Emp...more

" 'Impart the godhead.' That would be a euphemism for 'have sex with,' am I correct?"

The risque humour, not to mention a rather disconcerting pantheon of gods, continue to sit at the centre of this rather humdrum addition to the new Frontier series.
"I've walked some death myself, 'god,' " shot back Calhoun, "and it might be wise for little gods to stay the hell out of my way."
Calhoun is his typical brash self, and the rest of the characters fall neatly into their holes with neither fuss nor foib...more

Peter David writes a very particular kind of Star Trek, especially when writing "New Frontier" books. If you like the earlier ones, you should find this one pretty entertaining. David continues too bring a TOS feel of larger than life events--Gods in this case--unabashedly into the 24th Century. The sense of adventure is high and the dialogue is as snappy as any previous book. If you think Trek needs to be a little more somber, this one may not be for you.

PAD, still writes enjoyable ST like we're viewing a new episode. He's very easy to read and enjoy, a true entertainer. This time we continue from the cliffhanger of the last book where some members where killed and the USS Excalibur suffered massive defeat at the ends of "gods". And now the conclusion...

Just finished!
Like I said, an easy read, the story keeps advancing at good pace and the characters are believable and respectful of their roots, motivations and the Star Trek universe.

Wrapping up the storyline begun in Being Human, this is a very solid read. It pulls in some underused cast members, makes significant changes on others, and leads to the end of the tale for yet one more. And it's all done in an extended Star Trek setting that makes canon-like sense. Good stuff -- not for the first-time reader, by any means, but some decent payoff for those who've been following the series along.
Benjamin Plume
Great follow-up to "Being Human." Everything I said there applies here as well. I am continuing to devour these in an attempt to catch up to the most recent installment.

Conclusion to the one I was reading last week. Decent wrap up with some funny bits and good mythological nods.
Shannon Appelcline
Not nearly as strong as its predecessor, mainly because the first half of the book spins its wheels at length.
