The family got bigger!


The journeys of the USS Excalibur through the tumultuous Space Sector 221-G (formerly the Thallonian Empire) keep bringing more and more, thought-lost family, to the boldly crew of the USS Excalibur...

...Robin Lefler got reunited with her mother, along with all the mystery surrounding her return and her played role a century before in the Star Trek universe...

This felt like an odd Star Trek: New Frontier book to me, since we barely get to see the USS Excalibur, and aside from a great joke with Robin Lefler in the beginning, we're on completely separate worlds and 90% of the action deals with the new characters of Xyon and Riella, the new villains Dogs of War, and the return of the Redeemers from Martyr with some slight presence of Si Cwan, Kebron, and Soleta.

It's still fun, but we don't get a major connection until literally the last page, which ends

Took me three months to read this sucker. I didn't put it down because I hated it but it definitely wasn't making me rush back. Peter David spends most of his time introducing a new character and letting us get to know him, which makes you wonder who he is? Where did he come from? But I kept struggling with Why should I care? It has its usual humorous bits that David brings to every story he writes but I was kind of missing the Excalibur crew even with most of the good ones in Kebron, Soleta and ...more

A book where the crew of the EXCALIBUR barely shows up, and the story that sidelined them is dull, dull, dull. Both "reveals" are poorly handled and barely above soap-opera level histrionics. Just a bore.
Had its ups, some funny moments, but maybe after reading 6 books in this series I feel like it is somewhat bland and could have been much more than it is. It was an ok read nevertheless, continuing the story of cpt. Calhoun, thus 3 stars.

It was okay. I'm annoyed that the main characters were barely in it. But there's a nice twist at the end which now makes this feel like the first part of a longer story. Not my favorite off the series so far, but we'll see off things pay off in the next book.

Really loved this one. Feature 2 new characters in a swashbuckling adventure. I think it's the most fun I've had reading all year.

For those of you unfamiliar with the series: Star Trek: New Frontier is a series which takes place contemporaneously with Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. It is a series which manages to avoid the almost painfully continuity-obsessed Star Trek Expanded Universe which could really use a book similar to Star Wars: The Essential Chronology by Kevin J. Anderson.

Instead, the premise of the series is a fairly simple one: there's a starship (U.S.S Excalibur), an area of

The Quiet Place is book 7 of Star Trek: New Frontier and chapter 10 of the overall series. After all the delays the Captain's Table and Double Helix story arc provided, I was ready to jump back into the main storyline of New Frontier with The Quiet Place, only to get what feels like merely the set up to a new story. That's not to dismiss the book entirely--we did get the introduction of two major new characters and a new group of adversaries who promise to shake things up on the USS Excalibur fo ...more

I have mixed feelings about this book. One the one hand, it is a fairly entertaining story in the great environment that Peter David has created. It has the familiar bad guys of the Redeemers and the new bad guys of the Dogs of War. On the other hand, Calhoun is in the book for, and I'm not exaggerating, 4 pages. Excalibur is in it for only a few more.

First, what I liked: The bad guys in this book are really cool. The Dogs of War are a neat concept. I always enjoy authors taking advantage of lac

"The Dogs were making so much noise that a blind elephant could have avoided detection simply by listening for where they were and going where they weren't."

This instalment introduces us to the dogs of war - a rather dangerous species that now seem to be well on the path of redeemed enlightenment. This probably means they're going to cause all sorts of havoc in the future, so that's interesting.

"Krul's grudging admiration for the pink-skinned, humanoid creature upon him rose exponentially. That

This book doesn't take place on the Excalibur much at all.

We meet Riella who is a girl who has very strange and disturbing dreams.

We meet Xyon as he escapes from being nearly executed when the Dogs of War attack the planet. He finds out that they are looking for a girl and a place called "The Quiet Place."

Si Cwan, Kebron and Soleta have gone off on a diplomatic mission when then end up getting tangled with the Dogs of War and the Redeeemers on their way to find Si Cwan's long lost sister Kallin

Eh, this one was so-so. I mostly didn't care for it as the cast of characters I'm used to for this series was almost entirely missing, with the action instead focusing on new people. A decent reveal at the very end, but mostly, due to it being all new people, I had a hard time really caring about what happened to any of them.

Sub-plots are starting to pile up, but the introduction of the 'Dogs of War' and more with the vile, but interesting 'Redeemers', keeps the story moving and exciting.
Like this cast, but PAD's habit of wanting to be funny when a story doesn't need it and too many soap opera elements drove me away from this series a couple books later.

A bit disappointing to have so much of this book away from the ship and our main characters, but there's some nice plot, and the characters introduced are clearly setup for the future.

Great until the end, which was left a little too mysterious for my tastes. I didn't get much sense of what the Quiet Place actually was. Love David's characters, though.

They're just out of the corner of your eye, when you're not expecting them, and sometimes if you close your eyes very, very tightly, and open them quickly, there will be a quick flash of them behind your eyelids before they dissipate.

They are the echoes of deja vu, they are the regrets that are fleeting, they are that which you didn't know you missed...

They are everywhere and nowhere.”
