I think i remember reading somewhere, probably here, that #3 & #4 have been contracted, but there is no set release date yet that I've heard of..
All I've heard is sometime in 2015 for books 3 and 4.

I voted Average. First book was good but I struggled with this one. In book one we got the Changed fighting Starfleet crew, and for most of this one we got the same thing. After a while I felt there was only so many accounts of the two sides fighting I could read.

I found it "unnecessary" slow and a somewhat unsatisfying ending.

I didn't find it slow, but there were a number of redundant passages that didn't need to be there.

Quite good but I felt the overall story would have been better off as 1 book instead of 2

I agree completely. The first book was so much better and felt very fast paced. Second was so bogged down, sad to say.

I really wish I liked these two books more than I did. Mostly I felt the Tomol were not interesting enough to carry the story for two books. One would have been enough.

Also I had a hard time keeping track of the characters, mainly because most of them sound the same. Either they were a quipy and jokey sitcom star who always has the perfect remark or a Spock clone. To be honest this is an issue with several Trek books not just these. No one sounds natural anymore and everyone has to be a comedian.

I plan to keep reading because I enjoy what this series wants to do (I want optimistic old school Trek) but I really want it to be better. Also I think a Who's Who of each crew in the next book might be helpful.

To be honest, I'd be unable to tell Sagittarius's XO and Christine Vale apart, in terms of dialog.
