Trektoday.com has added a new review for David Mack‘s “Star Trek: The Next Generation: Collateral Damage”: Where to start? Picard finally faces his Judgment Day and while he is concerned about the outcome, his inner turmoil is every bit as difficult as sitting in court facing an opposing lawyer who has lost faith in him. […]
Trektoday.com has added a new review for Gene Roddenberry‘s “Star Trek: The Motion Picture 40th Anniversary Edition”: Honestly? I’m about to commit blasphemy. I’m not always a fan of Roddenberry’s writing. I find it to be sometimes juvenile (Kirk’s mother’s “first love instructor” anyone?) and overly idealistic. The “new humans” made me roll my eyes. […]
Trektoday.com has added a new review for Greg Cox‘s “Star Trek: The Original Series: The Antares Maelstrom”: “A gold rush in space” sounded like a great idea for a Trek story, and this proved to be the case. Of course, the “gold” must be upgraded to the futurist Trek “pergium” but other than that, it’s […]
Trektoday.com has added a new review for John Jackson Miller‘s “Star Trek: Discovery: The Enterprise War”: This book answers the question – what happened to Captain Pike and the USS Enterprise when they were away from the Federation-Klingon war. The events of this book lead right into Star Trek: Discovery: Season Two. Buy on Amazon.com […]
Trek Today has a review up for Christopher L. Bennett‘s “Star Trek: The Original Series: The Captain’s Oath“: If you’re a fan of Kirk, you’ll love this. In addition to all of the action listed above, which alone could make several separate longer stories, there is a young James T. Kirk learning to adapt to and […]
TrekToday has a review up for Dayton Ward’s “Star Trek: The Next Generation: Available Light“: This book had very different stories within it; a political one dealing with the aftermath of the exposure of Section 31, and a classic Trek story of exploration. After finding a supposedly derelict ship, the ship, the Osijemal, is found to have […]

Trek Today has a review up for Una McCormack‘s “Star Trek: Discovery: The Way To The Stars“: The Way to the Stars is the story of Sylvia Tilly as a sixteen-year-old. The story of the young Tilly is framed by a prologue and epilogue set on the USS Discovery, in the quarters that she shares with Michael […]
Trek Today has a review up for M. Keith Booker‘s “Star Trek: A Cultural History“: Covering all of the series, but with a very heavy emphasis on the original series, readers get to see how Star Trek fit into the world of the 1960s and beyond; comparing it to other television shows airing during that time, as well […]
Trek Today has a review up for Joe Nazzaro ‘s “Star Trek: The Art of John Eaves“: One of the more interesting things to me was Eaves’ explaining why he made certain shapes for various items, and on what he based those ships and props. A few of the various inspirations were horseshoes, Catholic Church architecture, […]
Trek Today has a review up for “Star Trek Voyager: Architects of Infinity“: Trek fans will like the exploration aspect of the story; the strange planet and its mysteries. I’m sure we will be hearing more about this in Beyer’s next book.
