I stopped at about the 1/3 mark - it's a bit spoon-feedy, and I couldn't stay focused. I'll come back to it later. (If only there was a "Partially Read" shelf, sigh.)
As a shuttle from the Enterprise lands on a mining colony, the atmosphere ignites killing all the colonists. All signs point to an engineering malfunction or crew error. The Soval, the Vulcan Ambassador, sees this incident as yet another sign that humans are not ready for space, and recommends the Enterprise be grounded.

The basic premise of the story is that the Enterprise manages to vaporise several thousand people in a major accident whilst visiting a planet. Then, as the Enterprise prepares to be recalled back to Earth, Captain
I tend to really like the books based on episodes/movies. They get you into the characters' heads and let you know what's going on inside. They also give additional scenes that were cut. This one was good.

I didn't realize until halfway through that this is a novelization of an episode and, therefore, I already "read" it. Man, there are quite a few typos in this book.

What if the Enterprise really screwed things up at the beginning....What ifs...I love what ifs...Time travel is great! Good book!
A rather poor novelization for a really good two-partner. The plot is okay, the writing... not so much.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia where I lived a typical childhood with a far more interesting fantasy life. I mean, how many other eight year olds were sticking their Star Wars action figures in Ziploc bags filled with water and putting them in the freezer to recreate the ice planet of Hoth? (Really? That many? Never mind.)
