Some classic trek lit.

The third Star Trek Log again has Alan Dean Foster doing a trio of adaptations from scripts of the animated Star Trek series. This volume features two sequels to TOS episodes ("Once Upon a Planet," a sequel to "Shore Leave" and "Mudd's Passion," using Roger C. Carmel's inimitable rogue), and an original on ("The Magicks of Megas-Tu"). For once, all three are relatively entertaining. One has to wonder how much better the stories might have been had Foster actually watched the show instead of just ...more

I really enjoy reading the original series novels and yet, sadly I was disappointed with this book. The first and third stories were okay but I really hate Harry Mudd so I just tried to get through the middle story as fast as I could. Unfortunately the two that were just okay were merely that. Okay. I wasn't blown away by them and I felt that the Magiks of Mesa-tu was just a little bit too tongue in cheek although it was slightly enjoyable. I know I sound like I am contradicting myself but ...more

Another thrift store find, I had great fun reading these three tales based on episodes of the animated series. I vaguely recall seeing a few of the animated episodes from my childhood. Alan Dean Foster did a great job of bringing the familiar characters to life, and fleshing out what were probably fairly sparse half hour scripts into readable stories. I especially enjoyed "Mudd's Passion", as it brought back one of my favorite characters, that incorrigible rogue, Harry Mudd. I took great joy ...more

An excellent read. Foster has a gift for imagery seldom found in literature of any kind. The only problem, and a minor one at that, is some scene transitions aren't clearly indicated, so the story will occasionally jump settings without the reader being initially aware. A small price to pay for such vivid descriptions, though.
Another three episodes from the Animated Star Trek Saturday morning cartoon series have been adapted by Alan Dean Foster in novella form. Nearly the only format available of the Animated Star Trek series.

(I have read this book at least three times.)

Though this book drags a little, the final story--"The Magicks of Megas-Tu"--is well-treated. Overall, it's an enjoyable and well-executed novelization. Perhaps I enjoyed it so much because it may be "comfort reading" ;-)

Enjoyable fun for a fan, but not the greatest volume. A lot of revisiting of themes that had already been done in the original series.

A fun collection of stories. They have a real sense of menace to the characters despite the problem of knowing they'll survive. Imaginative and fun.
