Mr.Pjax - I have been reading Star Trek books for over 20 years and I would strongly disagree that this book reads like a JJ Verse novel. I am not a fan of the book at all as stated earlier in this thread. I think it reads like a bad TOS episode (very bad). It actually might have been better had it been set in the JJ Verse era in my opinion. At least then I could have been more forgiving with it.

This book was still on the Bestsellers wall yesterday at my local Coles.

My first one was Price of the Phoenix, when I was in 4th grade.
I read "Fate of the Phoenix" first, because "Price" was much harder to find, especially in the Bantam edition. (My local shops seemed to have imported mainly the Corgi UK editions of "Price" - and "Planet of Judgement". It was a time of Aussie government regulations giving UK publishers preference over US distribution.)

I'm guessing Therin has been reading them close to 40 years by now as well.
Started with ST:TMP novelization in December 1979, but later realised I'd read "Mission to Horatius" as a kid.

Just finished the novel - a nice little adventure with good characterization and of course, the highlight (IMO) was the use of Hortas.
