Space the final frontier, but if you had any sense you would stay at home on Earth and live in the relative peace and tranquillity that is the Star Trek universe. It is this baseline oxymoron that slightly undermines the ‘New Earth’ series of books that continues to do so in book two; ‘Belle Terre’. Thousands of people have left the perfectly safe Earth and set off to inhabit a new world thousands of light years away. Plenty of people died in book one and the dying does not stop here, no matter ...more

This book should have been a novella. It seems like the author, editor and publisher all put their collective heads together to lengthen the story by 100 pages to draw it out to make it a book. There was a pointless story arc, with children, in the book which had no bearing on the overall story and appears to be thrown in for the drama of it. Which failed miserably. Constant duplication of feelings and ideas between the characters to draw out the story itself. But, it needed to be read since it ...more

This was a fun quick read. First Trek book that I've read. I'd like to see where the adventure goes from there, so I'll have to check out some more.

Pretty cool on the visuals, and left me hanging.

The overall plot was a bit weak, and I found it somewhat unbelievable that Spock couldn't come up with a way to get the second moon on a path that didn't rely every ship to follow and adjust it's course every few minutes. Characterization was well done and followed nicely with the first book. Overall a good follow-up to Wagon Train to the Stars.

I read this book a long time ago. I was probably in 6th grade and I'm giving it four stars based on the fact that I was really into the whole story, it kept me entertained and wanting more. I loved it.

Better than the first in some ways, but predictable in that it introduces a problem (which readers knew about from book one) and solves it, with little else happening. A bit short, but well-written.

A solid piece of work as part of the series. New problems arise, new solutions are tried out. The characters evolve, not all for the best. We are left with the mystery of the Rattlesnake.

This was an excellent novel in a 6 book cycle within the TREK series. You have to read the series in order to get the full effect of each novel.

Kind of a disappointing follow up, but still a good read. The bad guys that made the first one such a good read are no where to be seen.
