Star Trek: Discovery — Somewhere to Belong

{4.5/5} “We have survived as a civilization because each of us understands our commitment to the whole… Thanks to uncounted severe lessons, we have come to understand we can rely on no one but ourselves. In the end, we are the only ones who have never disappointed us — or betrayed us.”

Star Trek: Discovery — Somewhere to Belong by Dayton Ward, published in 2023

Captain Michael Burnham and Discovery are headed to Evora. Dr. Arbusala, a Denubulan counsellor, has joined them for this mission. He wants to help the crew adjust to life 900 years in the future. Then they receive a distress call from a nebula where people don’t usually go.

This novel is about an unexpected request for asylum, and a people who have reason to distrust the Federation.

The crew actually watches Galaxy Quest at their movie night, which is pretty funny. There are delightful scenes with standout characters Jet Reno and Sylvia Tilly.

I’ve read 12 books by Ward. I previously reviewed Star Trek: Coda — Moments Asunder.
