There's more to Starfleet than exploring strange new worlds. When serious technical know-how is required, Starfleet sends in an S.C.E. team, such as the one stationed aboard the U.S.S. da Vinci. This topflight assemblage of engineers and technical specialists is a mixture of extraordinarily talented humans and exotic aliens, including P8 Blue, an insectlike alien who speci ...more

Star Trek: S. C. E.: Hard Crash by Christie Golden Hard Crash is essentially the conclusion to the 110-arc - and hopefully, to Geordi's visit on the da Vinci.

The da Vinci is called to investigate and, if possible, shut down a giant ship that's apparently crashed on purpose on a peaceful planet. What looks at first like a new variation of Borg ship becomes the story of the relationship between a pilot and a sentient ship that cannot cope with the loss of said pilot. 110 links with the ship and ge

Another excellent chapter of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers, and hopefully the last to be buttressed by the presence of Georgi LaForge. While I like Geordi, I'd rather see this crew of new (and old) characters flourish on their own without the guest-star treatment. Unless it's warranted or good for the story, of course.

This one has the crew of the Da Vinci encountering an alien ship that might be Borg in nature, and 110 making a decision on how he's going to live his life after the death of h
The Da Vinci is sent to investigate a crashed alien spaceship. This is a sweet story about loss, grief and relationships. Not what you would expect with the name 'Hard Crash'. There are some action moments when the ship powers up and threatens to destroy the planet. This is mainly a character based plot. A good read.
John Barclay
A good ending to the story arc, but all a bit too cosy.
Tim Walker
Short and sweet...
Hard Crash surprised me with the emotional punch that it packed. I truly wasn't expecting the ending that it had, and the emotional resonance that it held. Very well-written and with some fascinating character moments, Hard Crash made me very happy that I've finally decided to give the Corps of Engineers series a try. I'm certainly not regretting that decision thus far.

let's start with this, under no circumstance is a star trek book supposed to make you sad. uplifting usually but sad first never. but this one did and damn it i loved it for that. this was a very well written story that i suspect i will reread from time to time when the more conventional star trek starts to feel to unpersonal for lack of a better word.
Hmmm...ran through the first three books in this "series" pretty quick...they are all relatively short books - more "long" short stories than anything.

And, typical Star Trek books. I don't know why I keep going back to read these types of books, but I always tend to every so often...if you like Star Trek you'll probably enjoy these books.

Again, "professional fan fiction" fits this so well. Even written by an author who write the same style of book, but for World of Warcraft.
John Kirk
This was very moving, so I may try out some of the writer's Voyager relaunch novels.
Stephen Robertson
ok, almost predictable.
