David Kaye is a terrible reader. All the men and the narrator have the same voice. Uhura sounds just like the men. Scotty misplaces his accent. No one sounds like the emotion they're supposed to be feeling. David Kaye should find another line of work. As for the novel itself, it's a lackluster plot. Big climactic techno plot point was just not believable. Orion Syndicate is made to look wimpy.

A method of bridging the gap between The Undiscovered Country and the prologue of Generations, I wasn't wholly satisfied with this book. Christie Golden has written some amazing books for Star Trek in the past (her Dark Matters trilogy is one of my favorites), but I just didn't feel like she had the same grasp of these characters like she does of those for Voyager.

The latest Star Trek hardcover novel, "The Last Round-Up" promises to be the "final" adventure of the origianl series crew. However, instead of sending the crew riding off into the sunset in a blaze of glory, we instead get them slumping to the finish line in a novel that is rather derivative of a lot of things you've read before in Trek fiction.

The story starts out with Captain Kirk, teaching classes at the Acadamy, but not fully satisfied with his life now that he's not commanding a starship (...more

Over the past few years I've read a fair share of Christie Golden books, and particularly enjoyed her recent work in the Star Wars franchise. However, this book is probably the worst written book I've read in a while, by any author. For me the book's writing is bland but readable, it's the way the story is told that is its own worst enemy. Golden builds suspenseful story arcs that in the end she just gives up on. Never before have I seen such a lazy execution to a compelling idea.

I don't want to...more

I like Christie Golden, her new Star Trek Voyager relaunch books are excellent...this is her early work, and it shows. I over all liked the novel, and want to see the old crew's last mission. The book leads right into the Star Trek Generations prologue, which is neat. It also contradicts Star Trek Ashes of Eden...which also was the "last mission" of the original crew. Many Trekkies would disagree with me, but I think Ashes of Eden does a better job of Kirks last mission. The two books are simula...more

I feel like I've read better books by Christie Golden. The novel didn't feel like the characters were fully fleshed out with the long history we know about them. I suppose that is a challange to communicate with as much history as there is to keep in mind with writing with these characters.

I usually don't add these books on here but I'm trying to be more complete with my records.

The book was boring, the action scenes ill-conceived. The climax left the reader feeling as is something more should have happened. Not a horrible audiobook, but glad I found a second-hand version rather than buying new.
Mike
Most reader's reviews of this book were like 2 stars, indicating it was weak compared to Goldens other books (predictable story, etc). Bah! I really enjoyed it. I thought she captured Kirk, Spock and Scotty perfectly.
Benjamin Plume
Somehow I missed updating this one when I read it a while ago. I include this in my review only because it says something about the book's quality. Not bad, but not particularly memorable.

1 1/2 stars. One of the poorer ST books I have read. And since it was the last mission of the original crew together, that was a real disappointment.
Scott Williams
This is a quiet little story that bridges the gap between The Undiscovered Country and Generations. It's not excellent but it is entertaining.

285 pages Science fiction Star Trek novel. Lack luster novel. Not a good story.
