A fine satire on science fiction. Definitely worth a read for any Star Trek fans. I started imagining Kerensky as Matt Berry half-way through, which heightened the hilarity when he met himself. The one problem I had was that the first few chapters indulge in a redundant restatement of the facts. Of course, this may be in itself ironic commentary on poor script-writing, but it was a bit irritating.

One typo: On page 112 of the Kindle edition, it says "You're not just going to get killed off, Kerensky told them. It's not enough for a television audience just to kill of some poor random bastard every episode." I'm 100% certain this was meant to be said by Jenkins, as Kerensky is entirely unaware of what's going on at the time.
