Science Fiction Round 68: The False Federation

2017/01/29 Leave a comment

I read a Star Trek novel recently.

These are my equivalent of the fluffy romance novel: they’re not too heavy or too hard-hitting, and I can whip through one pretty quickly.

Many are quite mediocre, and The Shocks of Adversity was no exception to this rule.  However, it did provide some good food for thought.

I’ll provide spoilers here, but the book is largely¬†spoiled by the blurb… and the plot is not terribly surprising.

The Enterprise does show up, but I'll admit, that's not what I imagined the Goeg Domain ship to look like. I expected something a little more aerodynamic, since it can actually land on the planet.
