finally we discover the origins of Khan Noonian Singh, Kirk's
nemesis from the past. Except this book is not what it might
first appear to be. Rather than offering a straight birth-of-Khan
narrative, Cox teases out an alternative history of near Earth's
future, played out around a familiar world that features,
among other things, the Kremlin.
book, although not without its faults [there's some lumpy
dialogue to manoeuvre along the way], possesses an energy
and charm that lifts it above the normal run-of-the-mill Star
brings some much needed originality to the world of Trek,
along the way painting a dark and foreboding picture of one
of Earth's most ignoble periods - and at its heart the Chrysalis
may be a Star Trek book, but it first and foremost
a bloody good read.
