A while back I made a promise to myself that I would try to avoid certain genres, and one of those is licensed work. That might be a bit hypocritical of me considering that I enjoy comics which is corporate work for hire, but it was a decision based on the various franchises lining bookstore shelves. That doesn't mean there wouldn't be exceptions such as eventually trying Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy or Star Trek books written by established authors.

And, Peter David's ST: New Frontier books. I

Though some of the stories are individually good, they really don't gel, largely because they don't embody the humor of the New Frontier series. Worth reading:

Alice, On the Edge of Night. Both a nice character study of Morgan and a look at an important time in her and Robin's lives. Much better than the preceding "Lefler's Logs", which ineptly tries to cover some of the same topics. [7/10]

A Lady of Xenex. A good story that gives depth to both main characters. [7/10]

A Little Getaway. You have to

This is a decent collection of short stories in David's "Star Trek: New Frontier" setting, focusing on backstory / past episodes of many of the characters. Some are quite good, others are so-so, but the collection as a whole is decently entertaining. I'm tempted to look up some of the contributing authors (which is always one of the intents of such a volume).

The most intriguing story is one of the earliest, a very dark tale about Morgan Primus and her last days with her husband and daughter. Cre
Previously, the New Frontier saga was penned entirely by Peter David. Now, a legion of Star Trek writers can say that they’ve played in his Trek sandbox.

These tales of the U.S.S. Excalibur crew complement the novels by telling us more about their past history. All of the short stories in this collection blend well with what we already know about the New Frontier characters. I find it difficult to choose a favorite. They’re all entertaining. In addition to a story, Keith R. A. DeCandido also cont

Star Trek: New Frontier: No Limits is an anthology celebrating the longest running original Star Trek novel series--in that the series is not based on a pre-existing TV show or movie. I consider this book to be chapter 17 in the overall series because it contains the story of Captains Shelby and Calhoun's honeymoon on Xenex written by Peter David himself, which is worth the price of admission.

Will finish these stories after I finish reading the others in the series, as I am told it gets rather d

Entertaining enough I suppose. There's a good half to three quarters of the book is of Peter David equivalent quality, or stronger. Some real stand-out stories with only a few dull duffers.
Benjamin Plume
Each story was fun, but none of them really did a lot for me in terms of character development. Still, it was nice to see different authors' perspectives on some of these characters.
Brent Knorr
A collection of decent stories that fill in some additional background information on many of the characters that appear in the New Frontier line of Star Trek novels.
