Preview — The Entropy Effect by Vonda N. McIntyre
The Entropy Effect (Star Trek: The Original Series #2)
Granted, the thrust of the tale is how Spock pushes himself to the limit in a desperate series of time jumps to save Kirk from assassination by the nerve-crushing, disturbing spider-web gun. But a romance and a mustache for Sulu is why it stands out. Well-played, McIntyre.
I really liked the security guards: Snarl, Jenniver, and Sulu's lover-girl whose name ...more
also, check out the gloriousness that is sulu's mustache:
oh. my. goodness.
Bottom line: It's short and decent, but I've read superior fanfiction online and for f ...more
The Enterprise has been in orbit of a singularity for six weeks, Mr. Spock making careful observations of this unusual phenomenon, when they are called away to Aleph Prime by an ultimate override command--to be used only in the most dire of situations.
They arrive to find no great emer ...more
As for the cover artwork, I know some don't like it, but IMHO I think it's wicked cool. That being written, I do miss long-haired, mustached Sulu ...more

Durante días, el U.S.S. Enterprise se ha dedicado al estudio de una singularidad en el espacio-tiempo, un fenómeno de vacío que tiene perplejo incluso al vulcaniano oficial científico de la nave, el Sr. Spock. Por alguna extraña razón, la entropía en el entorno ha aumentado aceleradamente, y ello podía tener consecuencias desastrosas para el futuro del Universo.

However, the time ...more
Déjà en partant, j'aime beaucoup les histoires qui impliquent les voyages dans le temps. On assiste donc à un débat éthique sur les voyages temporels entre Spock et McCoy. Cette histoire a vraiment f ...more
Half Trek, half Doctor Who, with plenty of time travel paradoxes, going back in time to change the future, and whatnot. Some really GOOD secondary characters are introduced, and I do hope I'll be seeing them again at some point.
I should really add an ext ...more
PS: This author had a serious crush on Sulu.
Vonda did go on to write a ton of Trek books and in the eighties was one of 'THE' Trek book writers. She always does a good job and has a nice handle on the characters.
Well, not if it's this boring, apparently. Yikes.
From what I can tell from the blurb, I don't think the main plot had even started yet. Good grief author.
