Declassified is a collection of four novellas set in the Star Trek: Vanguard setting, which takes place around the time of the original series. The Federation has built Vanguard (Starbase 47) in the Taurus Reach ostensibly to lead the colonization efforts in the region (which borders Tholian and Klingon spaces) but its real mission is to track down and exploit the alien technology of the Shedai – a mostly extinct race who’s not at all pleased to share – while keeping it out of the hands of the K

“Declassified” is a collection of four novellas that form part of the Star Trek: Vanguard series. As with most stories set in this series the novellas are based around the crew of the Vanguard Starbase which is located in the Taurus Reach, a highly contested region of space.

The first story in the collection is “Almost Tomorrow” by Dayton Ward which takes place prior to the events witnessed in the prequel novella, “Harbinger”. The main aim of this novella appears to be in providing the reader wi

I was initially quite hesitant to pick up STAR TREK: VANGUARD: DECLASSIFIED because it's rare that short stories or novellas ever have anything relevant to contribute to ongoing series. This proved not to be the case with Declassified as some of my all time favorite stories of the setting are included within here. There's also quite a few massive changes to the characters within.

"Almost Tomorrow" by Dayton Ward tells the story about how T'Prinn and Anna began their relationship. It was a bit sud

This was another fun entry into the Vanguard series. I can not stress enough how much this series has given me an entirely new appreciation for the "Original Series" era of Star Trek. Far removed from the camp of the television show, itself, and the outrageous camp of some of the earlier novels, we have a truly serious story that treats it's subject matter realistically and genuinely.

This book details four "short" stories taking place during the Vanguard series; before and during. We even get so

And now I have two books to go! This has been one hell of a ride.

A step down is Declassified and not, because it's bad, but because two of the stories are inconsequential to the man story of Vanguard.

Almost Tomorrow, by Dayton Ward is the first story in the collection and set before Harbinger the first Vanguard novel. Whilst it's a fine little story, if you skip it you miss nothing. Vanguard readers by now know everything in this story. So I was hoping for a lil twist, anything to make it worthw

Just as the stage is set for the final chapters of the vanguard story, they do an anthology to delay the end... Then it turns out the anthology is excellent in its own right!

Almost tomorrow
The prequel that the series always needed, we see everyone,eet each other, a Vulcan intelligence operative faling in love and turning a Klingon spy. The lonely commodore meeting his new lovely JAG, and a brand new station still not entirely finished. I found it very nice to finally see how this cast of charac

This is a book of shorter stories by different authors following some established characters. It moves the overall story along quite nicely, but some stories are, naturally, better than others. I went into this series blind, and have tried to keep myself away from other reviews and spoilers, so I have only the vaguest of notions where the series is headed. It is set in the Original series era, but away from the exploits of the Enterprise, which are mentioned in passing as background information ...more

ok... with great effort I made it about 80% of the way through this exceptionally misguided volume in the Vanguard series. Whatever were they thinking? Have 5 incredible volumes of action and then when things really get going and the storylines are hitting warp speed, through in a volume of random "historical" background information kind of stories that probably were cut from the original writing because they're simply not all that interesting. I'm pausing to get the bad taste our of my mouth an ...more

This book is four short stories from different times within the Vanguard series. All help to flesh our the characters and the story line. This would would not make much sense without reading the first five books in the series. Star Trek: Always fun!

A distinctly middling affair, and a dip in the Vanguard series. Admittedly I didn't help matters by reading this in a rather fragmentary fashion over the Christmas holidays, but "Declassified" felt like far more of a slog than it should have been.

Almost Tomorrow (Dayton Ward) is backstory central, heading back to the construction of Vanguard station where all the main players are still being moved into position. Unfortunately, this vignette is rather staid and incidental. The Sagittarius' encoun

The four novelas of this one, were a variety of quality. 'Almost Tomorrow', was great, acting like a prequel to the Vanguard series. 'Hard News' was meh as a follow up to Reap The Whirlwind. 'The Ruins of Nobel Men' & 'The Stars Look Down' were great and average respectively. Essentially, a few good fillers in this one, for the hardcore Vanguard fans. ...more

This is the sixth installment in the outstanding Vanguard series. If you haven't read the first five books in this series, stop reading this review now and read them. This book contains four short stories, two of which are set after Precipice.

Almost Tomorrow by Dayton Ward shows us the beginning of several key relationships on Vanguard (and answered one of my questions about the T'Prynn-Sandesjo relationship). Hard News by Kevin Dilmore is a funny first-person account of Tim Pennington's days a
I was expecting this to be more of a "prequel" book, and while it has some stuff that takes place before Starbase 47, Vanguard became operational, it mostly advanced several personal story arcs. Fact is, this collection of novellas (four of them) kept the tradition of the Vanguard series, complete with surprises and characters who are just as "real" as Kirk and Spock and Scotty. And the usual grittiness of modern Trek novels is there, too, bringing a level of depth, realism, and visceralness to ...more

Too depressing for five stars.

This is a collection of four novellas, rather than a single story as the previous entries in the series have been. The first is a prequel to the series, set prior to "Harbinger", and is a very good introduction to some of the character interaction we see in the early stories, notably showing the first meetings of T'Prynn and Sandesjo, and Reyes and Desai. The second story shows how Tim Pennington found himself involved in the recovery of T'Prynn, which had seemed so
This Trekkie has feels...

Wow. The Vanguard series has done more to satisfy more craving for more Trek than CBS/Paramount has done in years. This was such a solid read. Declassified has four short stories in one book. But don't go passing this up. Each story significantly add to the story arc of Vanguard. Especially the last one. I had to put the book down in stunned silence after that one. The death of one the characters I loved and was rooting for (no spoilers) left me crushed. But

This was a collection of hit or miss short stories. The first one didn't land for me and I think that set a tone for the book. the other three are pretty good, especially the first-person perspective Tim Pennington piece. If you care about the Vanguard storyline at all, this one's worth a read as the last story features some fairly important plot developments. On the whole this was OK, but the Vanguard series has seemed pretty sweeping and broad which is a little harder to convey in four short s ...more

I miss the days when Star Trek books (as edited by Marco Palmieri) had a little ambition, and tried out new things, and expanded on my favorite elements of all things Star Trek. The Vanguard series is getting closer to its end with this book (only 2 left after this) and that means I'm almost out of good Star Trek books. The four stories here visit some of the supporting characters at different points in the Vanguard timeline - my favorite was the one focusing on Rana Desai, which felt the most T ...more

Four great writers.
Four great stories.

David Mack as always, no one leaves the party unharmed.
Kevin Dilmore, showing us the inside of reporting in the Trek Universe.
Dayton Ward, gives us a side of the story that brings clarity.
And Marco. [Wow]
Marco Palmieri, I knew there was a story in there..
Thank you Marco for writing this one. [rich in background and fun]

This was great 22nd century Trek and I am happy.

Been a while since I read a Vanguard book - and it was good that the 4 stories in this work as a good reminder to what has gone before, at the same time help in setting up the Finale (the next 2 books).

Not sure I approve of the killing (or at least apparent killing) of a major character - whom I liked - but Vanguard hasn't really pulled any punches when it comes to the dangers of Space Exploration.

Captain's Log, Supplemental

The entire Vanguard series has been epic so far. It rivals any epic I have read for depth and breadth of story and character. In between the main novels are these Novellas. I read them intermittently, where and when they fell in story chronology. They are every bit as good as the main episodes and are required reading as the main volumes do make reference to events within them. Highly recommended.

Four really bland, largely unnecessary stories. The only one that seemed like it pushed the plot anywhere was the last one and it had a really bad conclusion. Favorite story was the second, the one about Tim Pennington. I wish I had more to say about this book, but there's not a whole lot to talk about. It was mostly boring prequel style stuff. The stakes were low so it was hard to care about what happened. I barely even remember the plot of the first and third stories. ...more

This book adds some additional information to the Vangaurd series as revealed in the previous books. It is divided into four separate stories each related to a previous book in some manner. This book was ok, but not as good as the previous books in the series.
