So 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.

The 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 Trek novel.

Cox 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 Project.

This may be a Star Trek book, but it first and foremost a bloody good read.
