I must say, firstly, that it was a very enjoyable read, I couldn't put it down (figuratively speaking, it was a Kindle
) so any little niggling downs or cons cannot impeach that fact.
I did like how it payed homage to so broad and varied a fanbase, kudos to David for giving us nerds something to chuckle at.
And while some may not, I did like having plenty of familiar faces around, it requires more thought and creative writing to insert existing characters than simply create new ones.
I am glad too that Geordi was not written as the same 'unluckiest character ever' that has been his way for so long, and that he finally gets the girl.
I must question, though, has there been some memo at 'Star Trekl HQ' which requires the removal of our original heroes? First Spock in the new movie and now Scotty, whats the go?
So, despite heavy sciency subjects and at times disjointed dialogue, thank you for a fun time with some of my 'golden oldie' favourite characters.
Live long and prosper, David
