    Extraordinary READER S LOG This is one of the best Star Trek novels that I ever read and easily the best one using only the crew of The Original Series, without counting crossovers novels I know that I need to read books centering on the original crew, however, this novel Prime Directive will keep a place in the highest levels on my own personal Trek ranking ever A masterpiece written by the couple, Judith and Garfield Reeves Stevens.They crafted an intriguing mystery since the story began with the careers of the entire crew ruined but you don t know what happened, and along the narrative, you not only get to know what they are doing in the present of the story but also you will starting to get the whole picture of the disaster that happened in the past of the story and why the crew fell from grace.I like a lot not only the scope of the story but also that instead of the usual formula in many of the TV episodes of The Original Series where only Kirk, Spock and McCoy get to do the important stuff, here, the rest of the main crew, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, Chekov and even Chapel, have pivotal roles in the developing of the story.The whole crew has an interesting part in the story, not only on the present , but also in the past and of course, in the third act where they going to work together to resolve the mystery behind on the disastrous way that their Starfleet careers ended READER S LOG SUPPLEMENTAL The story is set in th...

    Prime Directive takes the reader on an interesting journey right from the start as we read about the failures of the Starfleet Constitution Starships and their five year missions including the loss of the Enterprise at Talin IV Since this novel is not an alternate reality or mirror universe then you are kinda derailed straight away but as you read the book and learn of the catastrophe then took place in orbit over Ralin IV and the subsequent crippling of the Enterprise it all falls into place Prime Directive follows the consequences of what would be Captain Kirk s biggest failure and the ramifications throughout the Federation and Starfleet The crew of the ship are blown to the four corners, some resign, some are charged and some stay within the fleet but at much lower rank Of course Kirk having accepted fault and resigning is working his way back to Talin IV now a restricted system and during his journey reveals the details of the events to his latest employer It is at this time we get to know exactly what was going on and the fact that this final mission of the Enterprise was far from a simple one as it interacted with the activities of the First Contact Office who prepare the Federation for first cont...

    The Enterprise crew gone rogue, always a winner These authors OWN the characters voices, ST canon, and the sensibility of the original series They re even genius at taking the cheese factor from the show and using it in homage Plot holes, Kirk skirt chasing, swashbuckling heroics, laughing o...

    This is hands down one of the best Star Trek novels I have ever read and I think even non Star Trek fans would maybe even like it It s a tight science fiction read that deals with catastrophic consequences but also is a mystery of sorts.Talin IV is in ruins A nuclear wasteland and the crew of the Enterprise is at fault Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Chekov, and Sulu a.k.a The Enterprise Five have all resigned over the disgrace of the events and Mr Scott continues to work to repair the critically damaged Enterprise because his resignation requests are being ignored Each crew member knows something isn t right about what happened on Talin IV and all feel they owe the planet something for what events did occur.The Prime Directive is something that we get exploration in later series but you don t get too much richness of it with the TOS crew Here we get a study of the Prime Directive and how it works in Federation policy and politics something this book is really rich in, you get a real feel for the Federation and what normal life can look like and what happens when the Prime Directive is broken It is terrifying and fascinating and even though you know better of course you wonder if Kirk and company can pull themselves out of this mess Kirk and company are on their own but are working together even if they don t know it too Each crewmember gets their moment and their own story You have Kirk hopping from job to job dealing with his own guilt over the even...

    So far, this is my favorite Star Trek novel It s really that good Sad to imagine how many years the paperback was just lying in a box under my parents house waiting to be read It is great for the following reasons 1 Based on some good, hard sci fi ideas.2 Couched in a great in universe Trek plotline that ought to be explored often the prime directive.3 The classic characters are absolutely intact and authentically rendered.4 Entertaining, easy, well paced read.5 The story is epic and inspiring without being cheesy, and captures the most charming aspects of what made classic Trek and its characters special.The hard science fiction aspect of this book relates directly to a grander, philosophical conceit, and that deeper philosophical concept is pretty fascinating It s also one that s fraught with spoiler i ness, so I ll try to be vague here The book raises questions about a demoralizing truth of human nature our tendency toward political friction and military solutions to problems, especially violent ones Where does the intrinsic human desire for violence end, and the devil s handiwork begin The book s answers are both troubling and a source of comfort These concepts all function on multiple levels, both in universe and real world, as all good sci fi should.On a specific, Trek specific level, the story is also quite special for how it deals directly w...

    3.5 stars Pretty good ST TOS story, and audio narration by James Doohan, AKA Scotty was a nice bonus.

    If the rating system here on Goodreads allowed for half or quarter ratings, I would rate this novel 3.5 stars I did not want to give it the full four stars, merely because the parts I really liked did not come to fruition until the last fourth of the book.As stated in other reviews I have written, I love Star Trek fiction There is something beautiful about expanding and conceiving anew for characters, plot lines, and universes of TV shows, books, and or movies that have already been established Fans, often than not, can oftentimes be so devoted to particular fandoms that they end up contributing a plethora of new, impressive facets to the fandoms brilliant crystal Wow, that was a really horrible metaphor Prime Directive certainly contributes to that marvelous pool that is the extended universe of Star Trek Taking place in the final year of the Enterprise s original five year mission, the novel centers on the now mangled starship s scattered crew, all struggling to recover from the unanticipated disaster that nearly obliterated an entire world Uhura went to prison, and Captain Kirk, Science Officer Spoc...
