    • Star Trek: The New Frontier: After the Fall by Peter David is the 15th book in New Frontier series proper, and the 22nd chapter in what I like to call Star Trek : The Prime Time Soap. The book opens up not long after the short story in the Captain's Table anthology that detailed Lt Soleta's departure from Starfleet and details her very surprising new career, then jumps three years in time in order to keep up with David's desire to keep the stories moving in "real time." I will not go into detail [...]


    • Series reboots (or "Three years later " tales) are always risky. They may be narratively necessary (how may events can one reasonably cram into 24 hours, as an example), but they've very tricky. For the one hand, there are changes in characters and their lives that may seem unfair, or glossed over, or arbitrary (just like in real life). Indeed, it may feel more like an exercise in the author artificially setting up a new set of conflicts and story opportunities without going through the ground w [...]


    • Mit diesem Roman startet Peter David quasi seine ST-Serie Star Trek New Frontier neu, seit dem letzten Roman der Reihe sind mehr als 3 Jahre vergangen, zum erstem Mal ordnet David den Roman zeitlich in die Star Trek Historie ein, er spielt wenige Tage vor den Ereignissen von Star Trek Nemesis.Elizabeth Shelby ist zum Admiral befördert worden, Kat Müller übernahm ihr Kommando über die TRIDENT, Soleta arbeitet, warum auch immer, mit den Romulanern zusammen, Si Cwan hat Robin Lefler geheiratet [...]


    • This book occurs three years after Stone and Anvil. It starts with Soleta, who has left Starfleet after they discover that she's half-Romulan, trying to join the Romulans. Then we discover Xyon, Calhoun's son, who everyone thinks is dead but has survived the black hole, has found out that Kalinda, his former love, is engaged to marry someone else. Robin Lefler has married Si Cwan and the two of them are on New Thallon, Lefler as the Starfleet Amabassador and Cwan as the Prime Minister. Xyon come [...]


    • Re-reading this after a couple of years, the "time jump" actually makes it a good jumping on point. Although it obviously follows up on the previous books in the series, I don't need to re-read all of them to refresh my memory for the subsequent novels. It seemed a bit odd to skip a few years, since the previous books were so closely linked together, but it's really the equivalent of the films (e.g. the gap between Insurrection and Nemesis) and it gets all the 24th century stories in synch.As fo [...]


    • It’s three years later and nearly everyone associated with Excalibur and Trident has moved on in some way or another, except their creator, writer of stuff Peter David. He continues to crank out entertaining books like the world is ending tomorrow. Does he know something we don’t? If only he didn’t write so many stories that end with the words to be continuedPublished in hardcover by Pocket Books.


    • After quite the time-lapse (three years?) the crew of the Excalibur are quite scattered. In the "New Frontier" series, which I quite enjoyed at its start, and has been waning ever after for me. I must admit, I was happy to meet the Captain's son again, but I'm annoyed at where they took the half-hermat, half-Vulcan child.


    • Forgot this one was in the nightstand pile. A fun read even for those that aren't caught up on the New Frontier. Loses points for ending on a cliffhanger -- now I have to go find the next one -- but it was very, very good. Impossible to put down, I blew through it in an evening.


    • Although I found the 3-year gap interesting and the characterization was top rate, as usual, this book was REALLY plot-light. That showed even worse when the book anti-climaxed, then ended with a "To Be Continued". Not filling.
