Trek Lit Reviews has a review up for Diane Carey‘s “Star Trek: New Earth: Book 1: Wagon Train To The Stars“:
Wagon Train to the Stars kicks off a six-book series that features the Enterprise escorting a fleet of colony ships to a planet well off the beaten track. Along the way, they have to contend with pirates, differing attitudes, and even a villain within their own ranks. The colonists intended on making the journey alone, but Starfleet insisted on sending an escort along with them, giving James T. Kirk yet another excuse to eschew his Admiral role and once again sit in the center seat of his beloved U.S.S. Enterprise.
