Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for “Star Trek: Captain’s Glory“: I found myself surprised by how much I enjoyed Captain’s Glory. Readers of my earlier reviews know that I’m not exactly the biggest fan of the “Shatnerverse” novels, with their rampant Kirk-worship and outlandish plots that serve to feed the “Kirk is a god” […]
Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for “Star Trek: Captain’s Blood“: Captain’s Blood is the second book in William Shatner’s “Totality” trilogy, and as such, I feel like it learned a few lessons from the first book, Captain’s Peril. For one thing, in both books, certain characters are under the impression that a major Star Trek character has […]
Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: 23 The 34th Rule“: The Ferengi, a creation that came from the early days of Star Trek: The Next Generation, suffered from an image problem. Initially meant to be the “big baddies” of TNG, the Ferengi were never really taken seriously. Many fans saw […]

After Kirk faces down his evil doppelganger, Tiberius, a few months have passed. Starfleet considers Tiberius dead, and tries to convince Kirk of […]
Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for “Star Trek: 36 Worlds Apart Book 2: How Much for Just the Planet?“: Star Trek is no stranger to absurdity. “The Trouble with Tribbles,” “I, Mudd,” and “A Piece of the Action” are probably the most notable instances. However, I think it’s fair to say that Star Trek has never […]
Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for “Star Trek: Voyager: 2 The Escape“: For the most part, I wasn’t disappointed. While The Escape is the first original Voyager novel, and thus is vulnerable to the pitfalls of not knowing much about the source material beyond the series bible and scripts of the first few episodes, the story manages […]
Trek Lit Reviews has a review of Star Trek: Enterprise: Last Full Measure In many ways, By the Book feels a lot like a story that fits in Enterprise’s first season. We have a crew that is quite green, encountering situations for the first time that would feel like old hat to later Star Trek […]
