Lots of filler, but really easy and quick to read.

Perplies and Humberg have a great grasp on what makes a good Star Trek story. The characters of Prometheus are compelling, and I feel like they took a page out of Keith R.A. DeCandido's book with their use of diversity and variation among the Klingon crew in particular. They have also managed to craft an engrossing story that has an important social message in the best tradition of Trek. The story uses the typical Trek tropes to good effect without overusing them, which is sometimes a difficult ...more

The story is ok, but far too drawn out. What is troubling are the racist overtones. The bad guys are terrorists, far too obviously analogs to Middle Eastern cultures here on present-day earth. Insults against alien cultures are usually based on appearance, resulting in horrifying instances such as calling the terrorists savage murdering red-skins.

I expect more out of my Star Trek than clumsy analogies and racist epithets.

Given a hundred hours to uncover the growing madness in the Sector before the Klingons declare war on the Renao, Adams and the crew of the 'Prometheus' track down the legendary homeworld of their former allies and discover the insidious threat which Spock believes is related to events from his past.

As the story builds, so the pace of the story improves. However, bear in mind that this is the middle volume of a trilogy and is not a novel in its own right.

On and into more mystery....

The Federation and their (hotheaded) Klingon allies seek an answer to the mystery of attacks and terrorism seeming to originate from a previously reclusive race, the Renao. Humberg and Perplies do a good job taking old canon (Spock, Lwaxana Troi, et al) and weaving it with their crew of the Prometheus. And next, we'll see how the sort it all out.....

Finished this one tonight.

A bit slow to start but a strong finish and am looking forward to book 3 in November.

I didn’t mind the cameo’s that some other reviewers have mentioned. I thought they all served a purpose.

Will be listening to Literary Treks 233 on the way to work in the morning 👍.

Well, the twist at the end of the book was not something I was expecting. Interesting! Looking forward to the third book. I still find the pronunciation in the audiobook version a bit silly. Trek names of places and things (like Khitomer, VGER, and Roktajino) are butchered. Overall a good read

Like Book One, it took me a bit to get into it. But I have to say, I'm hooked and can't wait to read Book Three. Very interesting characters and an engaging plotline.
