A good character study for Dr. Lense. I really admire the authors of S.C.E. for carrying this story through the past few instalments, and I suppose that ultimately, credit should be given to the editors. The payoff here was fascinating, and featured the exploration of a topic that should get more attention. Depression is a serious issue, and deserves to be explored with sensitivity so as to eliminate the stigma surrounding it and other mental illnesses. I rather enjoyed this story, and while it ...more
Star Trek: S. C. E.: #16 Oaths by Glenn Hauman When a pandemic disease breaks out on a shore leave planet Dr. Lense, who stayed on board due to counseling sessions with Captain Gold, is the only one who can save the entire population... and her colleagues.

Sigh. Another mediocre Star Trek COE/SGE novel. I wonder if it's worth the trouble to keep reading these. For one thing, they're too damn short to have proper story or character development. I swear that most of the authors in this series are starting to make that the gimmick - you can have one or the other, but very rarely both.

A plague is destroying the population on a planet. Only the Doctor can help but she has major issues. The interesting thing about this book was what happened to the Doctor and her family when Bashir was outed as genetically enhanced. She was persecuted while Starfleet tried to prove she was also genetically enhanced as that was the only way she could have beaten Bashir. A good read.

More interesting than many of this series. I love a good puzzle story. Nice to see the payoff for the DR as well. A long build up through other books coming to a head here. All the more reason to go on with the series.
