Worf is sent with his team of cadets to a colony planet to help a mediator. Klingons and humans are not getting on in the first joint colony. This is a quick moving plot and all the characters are well written. The illustrations are good, and help tell the story for those who need the help. It is interesting that one of the characters introduced here is destined to become Worf's partner. A good read.

Book 8 of my summer reading. Why did it have to be continued ? Wish it could have all been one book.

I've read many a Star Trek book: The Next Generation, Voyager, Deep Space Nine and more, some less good, some outstanding and though this one is relatively short and targeted for young adults I enjoyed it over the majority of the former. It is swift-moving, provides excellent details and is succinct and too the point rather like watching a good episode of the famous series. Very glad I picked up and will try to find the next installments. I particularly like reading about a young Worf and learni ...more

Peter David continues his trilogy about Worf’s times at Starfleet Academy. The first book was very light on plot, as the idea was only to introduce the setting and give room for the character play associated with Worf’s integration. Now we get a more plotted outing about a colony shared by Klingons and the Federation. The story is rather simple, but it works out well, ending with a nice cliffhanger. And as David still concentrates more on characterization than on young adult clichés, the result ...more

These old trek books for teens are like comfort food for me. I was in my teens when I began watching trek, and I would go out and buy the novels and the magazines and the comic books all the time. It just feels like home when I pick one up.

I liked seeing a young Worf tackle his new starfleet identity and his klingon identity. It's not one of the best trek books I've ever read (I believe that would be Q Squared or A Stitch in Time) but it kept me amused.

This continues where Worf s First Adventure left off, so in many ways didn’t feel like a separate novel. On the other hand were I reading it to enjoy the illustrations, or reading it to someone else, I suppose I could stop to appreciate it more.

The ending was quite interesting, and now of course I have to go to bed with the third one tonight…

Uno d elos libros que me pille en mi incursion a londres. Novela juvenil con personajes de Star Trek Nueva Generacion. Una de las curiosidades es la aparicion de Zak Kebron, unos de los personajes propios de David que luego recupero para su serie New Frontier. Una joyita.

The second Worf book with a good cliffhanger ending. The Vulcan girl is the best character, but the whole ensemble is excellent.
