Star Trek: Titan — Sight Unseen

{4.5/5} “We’re going to help set the tone for a Federation that has taken some hard knocks in recent times. Titan isn’t just a starship, she isn’t just a titanium shell keeping a few hundred organic beings live in the darkness. She is the principles we have chosen to abide by.”

Star Trek: Titan — Sight Unseen by James Swallow

Admiral Riker wants to take his ship the Titan back out to deep space on an exploration mission. But Fleet Admiral Akaar has a different plan — Riker is now sector commander, Alpha Quadrant frontier zone. While on their way they receive a distress call from the Dinac, whose ships are made of wood. Commander Vale is given a promotion to captain, and a new first officer is brought aboard — Commander Sarai, who everyone distrusts because of her work with disgraced President Ishan.

This action-packed story features Riker, Troi, Tuvok, and Melora Pazlar.

It’s about interacting with beings very different from you.

The aliens from the scariest episode of The Next Generation are back — the ones from subspace who kidnap people in their sleep.

The previous novel in the story of the 24th century is Star Trek: DS9 — Sacraments of Fire. I also previously reviewed Swallow’s novel Star Trek: The Fall — The Poisoned Chalice.
