Star Trek: Savage Trade

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4/5} “It is most unusual, although not unheard of, that members of my species leave our planetary home…  Excalbians simply don’t want to go anywhere else. The usual excuse is that we are far too busy exploring the inner space of our being to bother with mere physical reality.” Star Trek: Savage Trade by Tony Daniel, […]

{4.5/5} “Yet the quiet certainty of the marriage bond was always there for you, so solid that you didn’t need to think of it. Now, though, it is gone… both the mental connection itself and your image of who T’Pring would turn out to be. And so you are alone, adrift.” — Nisu, to Spock […]

Leonard

{4.5/5} “We shared an extraordinary experience that very few people have ever known. We were carried and buffeted by the same winds, and there truly was no one else who could understand what that meant. But beyond all that, beyond the success and the recognition and the applause, I really liked being with the guy.” […]

Star Trek: Prey — The Hall of Heroes

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4.5/5} “The chavmajta was the Klingon equivalent of a call for a no-confidence vote: he and Martok had to put on a defense. An audience of high council members would listen to the litany of valorous acts and judge the partnership worthy, if Riker and Martok did their jobs right. But Lord Korgh, who had […]

Star Trek: Prey — The Jackal’s Trick

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4.5/5} “Discommendation had taken their heritage away, stolen it from generations of Klingons on Thane whose only crime had been being born to the wrong parents. They owed the Empire and its morals nothing — and their savior, all.” Star Trek: Prey — The Jackal’s Trick by John Jackson Miller, published in 2016 The Unsung […]

Star Trek: Prey — Hell’s Heart

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4.5/5} “Why do you think everyone here stares at you? You’re not just an outsider, Worf — you’re a legend. We all know your story — even here. You are the one who came back from the abyss, who regained his honor.” Star Trek: Prey — Hell’s Heart by John Jackson Miller, published in 2016 […]

Star Trek: Legacies — Purgatory’s Key

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4.5/5} “‘I don’t believe this place exists, at least physically. Instead I think we’re all participating in some kind of… collective hallucination or simulation.’ When she said it aloud, Una realized it sounded more than a bit farfetched. Sarek seemed to ponder this, but only for a moment. ‘A shared mental construct.’” Star Trek: Legacies […]

Star Trek: The Captain’s Summit

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of movies

{4.5/5} “It has given me some of my closest lifelong friends. And every morning, no matter what mood I was in, I looked forward to going to work. No matter what the hour. I said I was going to spend the day with these clever, silly, talented, wonderful people. It was — and still is, […]

Star Trek: Legacies — Best Defense

Posted by Dave Switzer under Reviews of books

{4.5/5} “Most galling of all had been the addendum that directed Kirk to take full personal responsibility for the mission — so that if it backfired, it could be dismissed as a rogue operation, the brainchild of a maverick starship captain acting without authority.” Star Trek: Legacies Book 2 — Best Defense by David Mack, […]
