“Star Trek: Federation” [Review]

Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens have written a book

If you’re a fan of Star Trek it’s worth a look

We’ve got Cochraine, Kirk and Picard all keen

Going up against a minion of Colonel Green

Although sometimes the technobabble is gobbley-gook

Sorry, I’ve got to get this book back to the library and don’t really have much to say about it. Enjoyable and not entirely canon as it was published before several of the TNG movies came out. Maybe the authors reach a bit far in their attempt to create an epic space opera but it’s enjoyable.

  1. Even the picture is offtopic indeed, doesn’t it bring back the good old times – at least for a few seconds? The hulkish Cpt. Kirk….. 🙂 I don’t like the latest Startrek movies that much, I prefer the weird, dusty and (yesss!) technobabbling roots of that whole Startrek/Enterprise thing. Miss the spirit of those gone times……..

    • I adore the technobabble of TOS and even the later shows. This technobabble was a bit focused on modern quantum mechanics and physics and after a while it felt like I was in over my head. Personally I’m a big fan of the new movie and I can’t wait to see the newest one. It’s pretty exciting to see Star Trek continuing strong.

      • Well, everyone drinks another tea. 😉 I’d really appreciate kinda timetravel stuff that’d bring back some old faces into the new movies. Kinda spice in the soup……. But I think most of the old heroes are retired meanwhile.
