And lastly, here we get another bashing of those who have faith and glorifying those who have science. The best Trek (DS9) showed us how faith can live alongside science and here those with faith are bigoted and fear-mongers, the complete cliche.
While I couldn't stand the A-plot of Sword of Damocles, THAT was a story that did an excellent job of avoiding that false dichotomy. The portrayal of Jaza--a man who showed us the best of both worlds, so to speak--was superb.

What you describe in THIS book absolutely spits upon the series' prior precedents.

I'm very sorry to hear the series was dragged down by something like this, and it only validates the decision I made a while back that on the whole, modern Treklit just isn't worth the investment in time or money anymore.
