I don't really think a synopsis is necessary here. This book is a collection of three short Star Trek stories from the animated TV show. You know if you're the target audience here or not. Either that, or you live under a rock.

I've been trying very hard to avoid a reading slump lately and I've been reaching for a lot of short story collections to feed the evasive nature of this situation.

These stories were fun. They were exactly what I would expect from a Star Trek Log. although, one story

This book does the job and was a pleasure to read. There was nothing ground shaking within its pages, but it was certainly worth picking up.

These are adaptations of the animated tv series. Many of the stories are quite enjoyable.

I initially gave this book four stars, and while it is true that my love of the original series is strong, and that I love reading these books, it really isn't as good as the four star books I've read so far this year. These stories aren't complex, or amazing, but for me it's like spending time with old friends, which I realize biases my response. The first story is a variation on a theme that has been done a number of times in the Star Trek universe - an alien that poses as human. Its deception ...more

Another Star Trek Log that pretty much coasts by on the strength of Alan Dean Foster's interpretations of cartoon scripts, this particular volume isn't one of the best in the series. The animated series had about the same percentage of clunkers to great episodes as the original series did, and the three episodes in this one (The Survivor, The Lorelei Signal, and The Infinite Vulcan) are all middling shows. Foster does make them rise above the limited level of the original stories, though.

Not nearly as enjoyable for me as Log One. Still well-written, but I had trouble getting through the first two stories. Not Foster's fault - he does a good job of turning the TAS episodes into short stories, but when the plots of the episodes themselves are lame... Maybe they weren't quite as cliched when they originally aired, but 'misunderstood shape-shifting alien masquerades as missing human' and 'alien women lure hapless spacemen to their doom'? Were those ever NOT cliched? The third story ...more

Another set of three adventures from the animated series. As in Star Trek: Log One, the episodes are of pretty poor quality, but the author makes the best of the material (this time without the many typographical errors that plagued the first installment). Still manages to be somewhat enjoyable and if you're a fan of the original series and haven't seen the cartoon.

The episodes included herein are:
"The Survivor"
"The Lorelei Signal"
"The Infinite Vulcan"
Another three episodes from the Animated Star Trek Saturday morning cartoon series have been adapted by Alan Dean Foster in novella form. Nearly the only format available of the Animated Star Trek series.

I thought this was a pretty good trio of stories. I've never watched the Animated Series before, so these are all new to me. I've been watching each episode on Hulu after reading each one.
