After the disappearance of Captain James T. Kirk, and before
Captain Jean-Luc Picard took the helm of the Enterprise,
the Federation and the Romulans clashed head on in a confrontation
that would change the course of history... The mysterious
Tomed Incident of 2311 was the Federation's definitive confrontation
with the Romulan Empire. In the midst of escalating political
tensions among the Klingons, the Romulans, and the Federation,
Starfleet goes forward with the inaugural flight of Universe,
a prototype star ship that promises to revolutionise space
exploration. But the Universe
experiment results in disaster, ravaging a region of space
dangerously close to the Romulan Star Empire, apparently confirming
suspicions that the Federation has begun testing a weapon
of mass destruction...
last month's excellent Sundered, Serpents Among
the Ruins attempts to up the stakes. An attempt that it
nearly succeeds in doing. As the military build-up accelerates
on both sides of the Neutral Zone, Captain John Harriman of
the USS Enterprise, NCC-1701-B, is fated for a final
confrontation with his oldest enemy at a flashpoint in history
- with the Beta Quadrant one wrong move from the outbreak
of total war.
edge of the seat stuff all the way as author David R. George
III takes us back to a pivotal point in Trek's previously
uncharted history. His writing is fluid and engaging and you
won't be able to but this book down. In fact, I read this
book in half the time it usually takes me because I couldn't
put it down.
the plot and conclusion may hold few surprises, the execution
is faultless and I'm already starting to think of the crew
NCC-1701-B as familiar characters. While this series
is only two books old it is already establishing itself as
a series of outstanding quality.
