Peter David is my favorite writer in the realm of Star Trek Lit. New Frontier is a top-notch series. Captain MacKenzie Calhoon is the charming lead character. He's basically a violet-eyed Conan the Barbarian as a Starfleet officer and yes, he does use a sword. While I profess deep love for this series, I'd have to say this one might be the weakest entry. It's still a 5-star book.

Star Trek: New Frontier: Gateways book 6: Cold Wars is the 15th chapter of what I like to refer to as the Star Trek the prime-time soap. This book is also a part of the Gateways series, in which a long lost race called the Iconians have seemed to reemerge from antiquity to sell their fantastic tech to the highest bidder. Among this tech are the Gateways, a method of travel instantaneously from one point to another. The range and size of these Gateways appear nearly infinite, so this tech poses a ...more

The next-to-last installment in the Gateways series of Star Trek books in one of the better novels. Like the rest, it continues the narrative established in the previous books, but unlike the others, it is also the only one, aside from Challenger, that does not have a television series. Also, unlike Challenger, "Star Trek: New Frontier" continues on with additional books. Because "New Frontier" is a book-only installment in the Trek franchise, and also not canon, it is suggested that readers bec ...more

I read this book as part of the Gateways series. It was my first New Frontier book and also my first book by Peter David, and I have to say that I really liked it. I was drawn in from the very beginning and it was something about David's writing style that I just fell for. I could only describe it as him writing in such a way that I felt almost as if I was right there in the middle of it all with the characters.

The story was an interesting one, and I especially enjoyed reading the parts about th

I bought this because I wanted to read all the books in the New Frontier series by Peter David. And, as far as the various "Gateways" books are concerned, this was a damned good one. All that said, I don't like cliffhangers much, and hate obvious ploys to make me buy more even less: the book doesn't have an ending.

Worse, the six Gateways books all were like this - and only ended with short stories in a collected hardcover volume. Ouch. Not a very kind thing to do. Still, I nabbed this, read it,

From a good period in the New Frontier series, Cold Wars is a nicely-written addition to the Gateways saga. It doesn't necessarily mesh well with the other stories in the series, but then again, that seems to be the hallmark of this particular miniseries. For example, the Petraw, the species behind this quadrant-wide swindle, are nowhere to be found and are not even mentioned. As far as the story itself goes, Peter David has a solid handle on his characters at this point, and Cold Wars comes acr ...more

I don't recommend reading this book first in the series...

Despite being unfamiliar with the surrounding story, many of the characters and locales, the book still brings the Star Trek universe into view. The different authors bring subtle flavoring to each of the story lines which wrap up very neatly in the end. You can't help but rank the protagonists as the story unfolds, but who was really surprised?

I rated it 3/5 because there were several spelling and grammatical errors and mostly that alth

Two starships are called to neighbouring planets who have used the Gateways to make war. The crews have to stop the war somehow and get hold of the gateways. The characters are interesting, even though some times the plot is predictable. It ends on a cliffhanger, but unlike the other books in the series the main story line is finished. A good read.
Loki
Far from David's best work, but an entertaining enough installment of the New Frontiers franchise, more than a little hobbled by the necessity of serving the big crossover story (and its unresolved conclusion, which is in a short story in another volume entirely).

I'm reading the entire New Frontier series (taking a break right now though). This one was REALLY good though.

David's writing is good, but to a certain extent the book is too scattered to really love it, with the attention spread against two crews, two alien races, and the strange Iconians.

If you've read all of New Frontier already, this is a nice way to get another episode. It's Peter David as we like him.

Gateways + Peter David + New Frontier = win.

My least favorite of the gateways series. I read it only because it tied in with the others, and really didn't care for the main character at all.
