Continuing my attempt to catch up on all of the Star Trek books I've bought but haven't gotten around to yet, just finished Chrysalyis. The basic premise is that Voyager is low on food and stops at a very earth-like planet to scrounge for some food. An away team beams down to the lush gardens riddled with ancient ruins after scanning the planet and finding no life--at least not what we expect as life.

This was just meh. The title kind of gave it away, the whole time I was just waiting for the butterfly aliens to hatch forth. It is such a solid example of me as a reader just being on the lookout, with a decent idea of what I would get ahead of time. It didn't do much to make it intriguing or great, and so it just gets an average mark. It is average and completely worthy of being skipped or skimmed.
A reasonably interesting, well-written Star Trek book, this story's pacing was just a touch off. It seemed to me that it peaked a bit too soon, with the last 40 pages or so something of an anticlimax, if not uninteresting. It had an interesting basic concept, the conflict between the "religious beliefs" of alien species, and the misunderstandings that can occur when they come into conflict, and this concept was handled pretty well. My head tells me that I should give this story a fourth star; re...more
Voyager needs food again, this is a common problem in the novels. They land on a planet with a religious group who are very strong in their beliefs. The plot really didn't do much for me, it was very predictable. The characterisations were ok, there was just not enough page turning moments for me. An ok read.

A clever, psychedelic and surprising book with a truly nice, culturally relativistic angle.
