      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      good for trekies

      Having been a fan for many years of Star Trek , I decided to see what the written form would be like, and bought this book from the now defunct borders book shop , at the time it cost £6.50

      Its is based on a what would happen if this happened idea the first two stories are ok , however when it came to the final story, I got a bit lost and wondered if pages had been removed from the book or I had missed a bit

      This is a short synopsis of the stories

      LESS PERFECT UNION, breaks from the Trek narative in Archer's time, but is set in Kirk's. Many recognisable characters from The original series are found here illustrating how culture strongly affects individuals, this was my favorite story


      PLACES OF EXILE, is a Voyager story. The plot follows directly on from the break point during the Species 8472/Borg conflict. This offering gives us the standard characters that change only with the ongoing plot, showing how big a difference a single change can make and at times felt a bit implausible , but I have never been that much of a fan of voyager , I cant stand cpt Jayneway LOL


      SEEDS OF DISSENT is set in the Deep Space 9 time frame, the break point being Khan Noonien Singh winning the Eugenics war on Earth. The characters here are mostly name touch points, the human counterparts being unregonisable in terms of personality or indeed physical appearance, reading this story felt like one should have known what the author was writting about from page 1 , there was no explanation as to what a princeps was and how Julian Bashier had become one,, the book is basicaly written around the original series episode 'mirror mirror'


      It is a paper back with 528 pages the ISBN is 1416571809 and is currently £6.74 on Amazon and at Waterstones an over priced £9.99
