Publisher's Summary

An original novel based on the thrilling Star Trek movies directed by J.J. Abrams!

Taking place in an alternate timeline created when the Starship Kelvin was destroyed by a Romulan invader from the future, this bold new novel follows Captain James T. Kirk and an inexperienced crew commandeering a repaired USS Enterprise out of spacedock for a simple shakedown cruise. When a distress call comes in, the Enterprise must aid a large colony ship of alien refugees known as the Perenorean, who are under siege by an unknown enemy. But Kirk and his crew will find that the situation with the peaceful Perenorean is far more complicated than they bargained for, and the answers as to why they were attacked in the first place unfold in the most insidious of ways....

A bit underwhelming

I was looking forward to this book. However I found it to be very drawn out and underwhelming. A simplistic ending to a very super intelligent adversary.

Very rushed ending

Superbly delivered as always by Robert Petkoff, this story started out hot, but I think it meandered through the middle parts. As for the ending, it seemed to just happen. Hardly any build up at all. Overall, quite disappointing.

More Star Trek than the films

I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It felt very Star Trek, exploring ideological differences more than anything. Enjoyable. Only downside is that the resolution felt a little abrupt. I would have liked a coda to see what life was like afterwards.
