This book was tough to review because I honestly like half of the story. That, however, was the problem; there were two distinct and completely unrelated stories.

Important disclaimer first: If have not read previous books in the Star Trek Titan series or in expanded Star trek Universe, this book will absolutely make no sense to you.

Did I scare everyone off? Ok then. Fallen Gods, as previously mentioned, is two distinct stories - a ship-side story and a scary alien planet story. The ship in the

I was torn between 2 and 3 stars, and finally decided that, though it wasn't what I wanted, it was a solid example of what it is. I haven't been reading any of the Trek ship series: I returned to the books for the Typhon Pact storyline, and picked up this one as a crossover.

Fallen Gods reads like an episode of TOS or TNG. Which, if that's what you're looking for, is great. I came for an ongoing storyline of galactic-political intrigue, and felt all the way through like I was reading something I'

Fallen Gods is not a terrible novel. It's just kind of... there. The prose is bland, and the story is not terribly engrossing. There are some positives in the novel: for example, Tuvok's reaction to the loss of the eco-sculpting knowledge from the previous novel was very interesting, and I would have loved to have the author explore that idea a little more.

Fallen Gods seems to retread a lot of ground previously covered in other novels. Nothing really happens to advance the characters all that mu

A good Titan novel focusing on the Andorians on board after their world leaving the Federation. Slow in some parts but a decent story.

This one moves apace. There’s quite a bit of action and Martin does a great job of making sure it’s clear what’s happening where. I feel badly for all the torture that these novels seem to be putting Tuvok through! I really hope he gets some time to heal and return to himself now.

During the heyday of Star Trek novel publication, Pocket Books put more than a hundred books into print telling stories from the original 1960s series as well as later spinoffs The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. Voyager and Enterprise novels started showing up as the franchise glutted the market and also some non-broadcast series like Peter David's New Frontier books.

One characteristic of most of the novels during the saturation period was how little attention they paid to each other's con

Though the United Federation of Planets still reels from Andor’s political decision that will forever affect the coalition, Captain William T. Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan are carrying out Starfleet’s renewed commitment to deep space exploration. While continuing to search the Beta Quadrant’s unknown expanses for an ancient civilization’s long-lost quick-terraforming technology— a potential boon to many Borg-ravaged worlds across the Federation and beyond— Titan’s science specialists e ...more

A planet and civilisation under threat from a pulsar where the ship's engine makes it worse, a former friendly race with a very naughty plan, and a general continuation of the themes from the last few Titan novels (artificial intelligence, and an ancient species that have left their technology throughout a region of unexplored space) combine with the ongoing Typhon Pact saga in a challenging and barely fulfilling story... if you can get to the end, then a flicker of light will reward you. But go ...more

Another winner! After facing down the Gorn over a terraforming device, Tuvok and SecondGenWhiteBlue both have the knowledge of how to rebuild the destroyed device locked into their brains. White-Blue has been non-responsive since the sentient device mind melded with him and Tuvok, and Tuvok is concerned at the destructive potential of the device if he were to access the information and build a new one.

As he ponders things, Captain Riker has multiple concerns. Titan is approaching the Vela Pulsar

This is a story that pits stereotypical logical,rational scientists against illiterate,uneducated, and violent religionists and does so with some of the most purple prose I have ever read.
An example...
"Behind the lengthening shadows of the ancient Whetu'irawaru ruins that stretched beyond the horizon, the cruel day slid inexorably toward the unsatisfying surcease of another encroaching evening. As night approached, the restive impatience of the Thousand slowly transformed from a formless, inchoa
