Publisher's Summary

The Federation races to discover the culprits of several terrorist attacks, sending their flagship, the USS Prometheus, to stop war breaking out in the galaxy.  

A mysterious terrorist organisation has carried out several attacks against the Federation and Klingon Empire. Tensions are running high in a region already crippled by conflict. The perpetrators are tracked to the Lembatta Cluster, a mysterious region of space whose inhabitants, the Renao, regard the Alpha Quadrant s powers as little more than conquering tyrants. The Federation are desperate to prevent more bloodshed, and have sent their most powerful warship, the USS Prometheus, into the Cluster to investigate the threat before all-consuming war breaks out.

Please pronounce things correctly

Overall I liked the story it was entertaining and it made me want to download the next book. But what was completely annoying was that the book was read a little to slow and things, places and people’s names in the Star Trek universe were pronounced wrong. It completely took me out of the story and aggravated me. With all the star trek information available there was zero reason to mispronounce anything.

It is a good story BUT...

Story is very good. The characters are well written and they do a very good job of keeping to cannon. However there is a huge BUT. The way the reader pronounces alot of the words like Betzoid and other such words. It is obvious he has never watched Star Trek. Instead has just pronounced the words in his native dialect. It is very distracting and pulls me out of the story.

Great new series

Great new series

This series is a great new adventure into the Star Trek Family. The story was very well thought out and the narration was great . It was not as good of a narration than Robert Petkoff but the narrator was skilled in distinguishing the characters. All in all it was a great listen and I will make this series part of my library.

Great story, needs some pronunciation help.

The story was excellent. Very indicative of the Post-Voyager Era pseudo-canon. Interesting characters and plenty of references to other books and to the shows themselves.

The narrator has a great voice, melodic and comforting, but as a hard core Star Trek fan, there were a few mis-pronunciations of Trek idioms that bothered me a little bit. Tal Shiar and Jem'Hadar were two big ones.

Am looking forward to the next book in the series.

Overall a good story but struggles

Overall it's a good and interesting story. It does drag in places especially when jumping from place to place where in each you just start to get involved with the characters they die... Not so unusual for ST except how much it happens. By the end it starts to come together and I do want to listen to the 2nd one.

the story was pretty good.

Story was steady placed. And also it really did build up well to the end. And just like an episode of Star trek, it was a bit slow and tedious in the middle with a build up to be interesting to the "to be continued...", portion. But overall, I think it was a good read. I can't wait to get to part 2 of the story.

Not smart enough to be Star Trek

I found myself constantly huffing throughout this book. The federation of this era is unrecognizable to me. The federation and everyone in it seems entirely arrogant and overtly obnoxious to their allies in the Klingon empire who are reduced to the level of savages with none of the subtlety or depth that was made apparent in the TNG TV series. The federation seems to have entirely lost the art of diplomacy and is painted as a self-obsessed group of snobs.

The way the terrorists carryout their attacks is lazy and uninspired. The author has set a precedent whereby no star-base or even star-ship will ever be safe in the galaxy again against a single individual with relatively limited resources. Star-ships and star-bases and all of their defenses are now effectively useless.

Star Trek is smarter than this. This is star wars schlock (which I love but I thought I was buying Star Trek).

Not recommended to any Star Trek fan, general Sci-Fi fans with no grounding in the universe may well love it.

Poor Narration

The narrator mispronounces almost every name, species and planet. Even the buoy was pronounced “boy”! Spoils an otherwise great story!
