There was a lot of corny writing.
I seem to think of a lot of stuff like this when I think of the Shatnerverse:
So Jim, when the odds were against him, did what he always did. He turned death into a chance to live, to fight, to survive.
It was, after all,Spock wopuld have said were he here, what he did best.
Then that sort of thing would happen about 8 times in each book.
Oh, and the fanwanky thing where a person ot two from TNG, DS9 and Voyager must show up.
