Star Trek: The Lost Era — One Constant Star

{4.5/5} “I don’t want to hear anything about the dangers involved… I’m a Starfleet officer… a captain, not some deskbound admiral. I’ve served on starships, and I’ve spent more time on the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone than almost anyone in Starfleet, including you. And I don’t want to hear about us maybe never being able to come home.”

Star Trek: The Lost Era — One Constant Star by David R. George III, published in 2014

Captain Demora Sulu of the Enterprise-B is exploring the planet Rejarris II. A pre-warp civilization existed there at one time but they’ve vanished. A landing party finds a layer of ash over everything but no destruction. Then they find a crater from an impact, which explains the state of the world — but not where the inhabitants went.

It’s about investigating a mystery, and also shows what happened to Captain Hikaru Sulu and the Excelsior when they went missing 11 years earlier.

It’s a terrific story. Admiral John Harriman also shows up.

I’ve read 15 of George’s books. I previously reviewed Star Trek: The Lost Era — Serpents Among the Ruins.
