Star Trek: Titan — Fortune of War

{4.5/5} “If you’re selling flotation devices, you add a markup when the customer’s drowning. Any Ferengi child knows that… At least they used to, before Nagus Rom and all his fairness and equality claptrap.”

Star Trek: Titan — Fortune of War by David Mack, published in 2017

Twenty years ago the Husnock were obliterated — all of them, everywhere, in an instant by a powerful being going by the name of Kevin Uxbridge. The Husnock were a violent civilization, and some of their weapons have been found — and several dangerous groups intend on stealing them. Meanwhile, a Federation research team investigating a Husnock site are kidnapped and Admiral Riker and the Titan rush to rescue them.

This story of Kevin Uxbridge and the Husnock was told in the Next Generation episode “The Survivors.”

This novel is a bit more intense than usual, as the situation is quite dangerous.

The story ends with a nice scene that’s part of a subplot. It’s another fine story.

The previous book in the story of the 24th century is Star Trek: DS9 Gamma — Original Sin. I also reviewed Mack’s novel Star Trek: Discovery — Desperate Hours.
