Re: One of Tor.com's writers did a review of Diane Carey's Final Front
I just the Vonda McIntyre’s Enterprise: The First Adventure review.
Does she do a lot of weird stuff in Trek too? I mean the Crystal star was one of the weirdest things by SW standards.
Crispin did a great Han Trilogy on the other hand.
E: TFA had genetically-engineered pegasus getting to fly for the first time and Spock's cousin Stephen, an emotional Vulcan juggler, as the Enterprise ferried a carnival between Starbases. Oh, and Spock mind-melds with a big bird and ends up thinking he's one too. Weird enough?
I remember not liking that book and some of the others around at the time which took Trek off in really fanciful directions.
I haven't read that many of Careys books outside of novelisations but did read Dreadnought and Battlestations years ago and enjoyed them. It's a pity the portrayal of Boma isn't consistent with 'That Which Divides', but there's no doubt lots of other issues as well.
Soon oh soon the light, Pass within and soothe this endless night, And wait here for you, Our reason to be here...
