12 years, she was captain of the Federation's flagship. But
while her exploits as commander of the USS Enterprise
NCC-1791-C are legend, little has been revealed about Rachel
Garrett, her vessel, or the unusual men and women of her crew.
last months mildly disappointing The Art of the Impossible,
the fourth book in the Lost Era series sees a spectacular
return to form. Garrett, you may remember, made an appearance
in the Next Generation television series in the episode
Yesterday's Enterprise. Well of Souls gives readers
the chance to get to know this intriguing Starfleet captain
a little better.
the archaeological find of the decade offers possible hints
about an earlier Cardassian civilisation, it attracts not
merely those seeking to quench their thirst for knowledge,
but also parties with far less noble interests. Among the
latter is the Asfar Qatala, a notorious criminal cartel with
a disturbing connection to one of the Enterprise's
highest ranking officers. Now Captain Garrett and her crew
are swept into a maelstrom of kidnapping, extortion, and murder
- as well as a desperate, secret struggle between the Qatala
and its chief rival, the fledgling Orion Syndicate.
beneath the surface of the frozen world on which the proto-Cardassian
discovery was made, another drama is playing out that will
force Garrett to make the most difficult decision of her career...
amid ruins reputed to link the living with the ancient dead.
J. Bick brings to live wonderfully Garrett, Castillo and the
rest of her crew who we caught a glimpse of in Yesterday's
Enterprise. If, after reading this you are not tempted
into rewatching that classic Next Gen story, then there
is something wrong with you.
just the best Lost Era book so far, but one of the
best Trek books I have ever read.
