Can't wait to read this. Have to try it with the Bruce Greenwood Pike in my mind as he was FABULOUS as Pike.
I think you will enjoy the book and the portrayal of Pike. I feel he was more in sync with Greenwood/Pike.
If you liked DR. Boyce from the pilot episode, you will really like this book. He plays a major part and is every bit the emotional DR we all loved in Leonard McCoy.
The Orions are very much like their appearance in Borderland and Bound episodes from Enterprise. The Males are portrayed as huge hulking brutes and powerful warlords and the females as intelligent and desirous of leadership. It also touches on the history of the Orions and once having a powerful empire.
Overall I would give it 4/5.
