Ok, so this book starts out alright, but it gets kinda...ya know....childish? I mean it is NOT that easy to get two civilizations who have been fighting each other for millenia to just quit. It doesn't work like that. Sorry. I would have to say that the only REALLY cool part of this book was the guy they were ferrying around, he makes Kirk so MAD! Really though, it is easy to tell how this book will end RIGHT AFTER YOU START READING IT! I have read ALOT of Star Trek books, and there are MANY out there better than this one. But i have to admit that this MIGHT be a good book for someone new to Star Trek books. If you are new to Star Trek altogether.......WATCH THE SHOW FIRST! Oh, yeah, and have a nice day.
