of perfect health and everlasting peace, all they want is
to be worshipped. To stop them enslaving the galaxy The Trident
and Excalibur must overcome an entire planet of individuals

book is poor. Although it started off well, after the title
it was all down hill. The actual story line is not bad, it
is the stuff most good Star Trek episodes are made
of, a seemingly insurmountable problem, a complex scientific
solution and bravery to carry it through. The
problem is the characters. By the end of the book I wished
that the gods had triumphed and obliterated these pathetic
people from ever existing. And I won't even mention the predictable
unfunny one liners... Even
when the characters look like they might have some depth the
illusion is quickly dispelled.
one moment in the book that finally took the biscuit was Captain
Calhoun's big speech. I knew from everything that had happened
previously that it would be pathetic. Even the addition of
Spock cannot save this awful book.
advice to all Star Trek fans, in fact anyone who can
read, don't buy this book.
