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: 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.

{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, […]

{4.5/5} “‘I know what I will probably say any other time anyone ever asks me this question for the rest of my life, but I also know that, in some small way, I’ll be lying a little bit if I don’t admit that the best day I ever had’ — O’Brien raised his glass — […]

Star Trek movies

Posted by Dave Switzer under My thoughts

I’ve seen the first bunch of Star Trek movies more times than any other movies. The last time I watched them I found that some of the best ones didn’t wow me quite as much as they once did. I would have rated Star Trek II, III, IV, and First Contact 5/5 on previous occasions. […]
