TOS: From History's Shadow by Dayton Ward Review Thread (Spoilers!)

After several 5YM novels and last month's look at the early years of the Federation we continue our backwards slide through history with Dayton Ward's From History's Shadow, due July 30th. In a narrative apparently split between the 20th and 23rd centuries we'll get a closer look at Gary Seven side-kick Roberta Lincoln and Captain Wainwright from DS9's Little Green Men.


2268: Following the encounter with the mysterious Gary Seven in the twentieth century, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise is startled by two intruders who have transported through space and time from Earth circa 1968. Incredibly, one of the infiltrators is a Vulcan, who asserts that he’s lived among Earth’s population for over a decade. The other represents a little-known race, and reveals to Captain James T. Kirk that she has spent the last twenty years working to bring about humanity’s destruction. It is then that Gary Seven’s young protégée, Roberta Lincoln, arrives seeking Kirk’s help. . . .

1947: In the wake of the infamous “Roswell Incident” involving a crashed alien craft and beings from another world, Captain James Wainwright finds himself recruited as one of the first members of Majestic 12, a secret organization with two goals: Collect evidence of extraterrestrial activity on Earth, and develop strategies to combat alien invaders. And it is this very mission that will consume Wainwright’s life for the next two decades, driven by the knowledge that the danger is as real as the aliens living among us. . . .
