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, published in 2015

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.
