Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for Keith R.A. DeCandido‘s “Star Trek: I.K.S. Gorkon: Book 1: A Good Day To Die“:
Over the years, I have known Trek fans who wanted a Klingon-based Star Trek series. Instead of following the adventures of a primarily Starfleet crew, this hypothetical series would take place on a Klingon ship and follow the exploits of a crew in the Klingon Defense Force, boldly conquering where no Klingon has conquered before. I was always skeptical of this idea, feeling that a series that doesn’t follow a Federation perspective would be difficult for an audience to relate to. One-offs, like DS9‘s “Soldiers of the Empire” or “Once More Unto the Breach” proved that episodes focusing on a Klingon perspective could be fun, but I still felt it would be unsustainable for an entire series.
