Kurzbeschreibung

Though the United Federation of Planets still reels from Andor’s political decision that will forever affect the coalition, Captain William T. Riker and the crew of the U.S.S. Titan are carrying out Starfleet’s renewed commitment to deep space exploration. While continuing to search the Beta Quadrant’s unknown expanses for an ancient civilization’s long-lost quick-terraforming technology— a potential boon to many Borg-ravaged worlds across the Federation and beyond—Titan’s science specialists encounter the planet Ta’ith, home to the remnant of a once-great society that may hold the very secrets they seek. But this quest also takes Titan perilously close to the deadly Vela Pulsar, the galaxy’s most prolific source of lethal radiation, potentially jeopardizing both the ship and what remains of the Ta’ithan civilization. Meanwhile, Will Riker finds himself on a collision course with the Federation Council and the Andorian government, both of which intend to deprive Titan of its Andorian crew members. And one of those Andorians—Lieutenant Pava Ek’Noor sh’Aqaba—has just uncovered a terrible danger, which has been hiding in plain sight for more than two centuries. . . .

A pulsar threatens a planet that at first seems empty until the crew of the U.S.S. TITAN finds out, that its surface is protected by a slowly failing artifical magnetic field. While waiting for another ship that is supposed to exchange the Andoran crew-members for some that are politically less in doubt after Andors secession from the Federation Cpt. Riker and his crew look for ways to find out more about this planet and ways to keep "their" Andorans on board. Both seems to be impossible.

While the problems around the pulsar belong to one aspect of the continuing TITAN-story, the Andoran troubles - which are made worse by the arrival of an Andoran battle-cruiser - are part of the broader ST-story at the moment and is metphorically linked to the persecution of Japanese nationals and descendants in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbour.

Interesting and complex continuation - but be warned. There is more than one cliffhanger here.

HASH(0x97b8f7b0) von 5 Sternen In case anyone needed an example: this is BAD tie-in fiction. 3. August 2012
Von Malcolm - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
To see a magnificent example of GOOD tie-in fiction, one only needs to think back a month to David R. George III's fantastic Raise The Dawn. It took all of the compelling pieces of the DS9 & wider-Federation narratives and recombined them in unexpected new ways, expertly balancing the familiar and the new, the Star Trek spirit and the rush of galaxy-changing consequences. Characters grew and changed, took terrible chances and made surprising choices.

Then there's Fallen Gods. Titan is arguably the most interesting set of characters in any ongoing Trek series right now, and this book does nothing with any of them. Every character arc is a sad little echo of an earlier one that was written better than this (eg, Keru still distrusts cybernetic life because of the Borg, Ra-Havreii still doesn't trust himself because of his Luna accident before the first book in the series, etc). Titan has been flying for three YEARS now. To not develop any of these characters at all is unimaginative and unrealistic.

And the plot is so resoundingly predictable. Religious aliens start destroying the technology keeping them alive. Our heroes have to save them. Yawn. But even better, in the end, our heroes do almost nothing anyway; the whole thing is resolved by an alien AI. The only victory for anyone is a minor twisting of legalese that Riker pulls off.

And the writing somehow manages to be pretentiously verbose and annoyingly filled with contemporary slang and phrasing, both at the same time.

The Trek novels have been so good lately, and Titan is capable of so much more. Can we stop letting Martin write these things, please? Literally any other regular author in the Trek Literature stable right now would've been better than this.

Oh well. At least Kirsten Beyer, Una McCormack, and David Mack are writing the rest of the novels this year, and none of them have had a miss yet.

HASH(0x97b6ca50) von 5 Sternen The Titan series is a squandered opportunity. *Spoilers* 1. August 2012
Von Adrian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After the fantastic last two Typhon Pact novels by David R. George III, I was hoping this would be another great installment , as it is linked to the events happening in the Typhon Pact series. Alas it was not meant to be.

If you want to know the plot, you can read the extract above.

The book lacked action and excitement. The plot seemed weak and stretched. A starship captained by William Riker should not be like this. Everyone knows the phrase- Boldly going where no one has gone before. Well, where's the Boldly Going part? This is Will Riker, a man capable of such lateral thinking that even Captain Picard said: "He's the best" in one of the ST TNG episodes. Why aren't the publishers getting writers who are capable of lateral thinking? I want to read something clever from him. The last few pages are supposed to be an example of him pulling something last minute out of his hat, but come on....that's not really the sort of thing we like ST for. We want him to miraculously make an old shuttle do something like taking out a Warbird or rescue a whole planet, not some minor legalese.

One other area Titan fails I think is having Troi aboard as his wife. She really doesn't have a big role, and half the time she's mentioned it's "she could feel his anger building up". Really? Along with Tuvok and Vale, this makes Titan seem top heavy to me. Perhaps others feel she makes the crew more well rounded, but I think she should be somewhere else. I mean, she was fantastic in the ST TNG episode where she woke up as a Romulan Tal Shiar agent. More of that for her? Give Christine Vale a chance to grow and not be boxed in by the Riker/Troi/Enterprise D couple.

I know it looks like I'm rambling more than giving a more objective well rounded review, but I'm quite disappointed.

As the previous reviewer wrote, this is one ST book you can give a miss, or perhaps borrow from the library.

And how could the Andorian battle cruiser possibly outgun Titan 3 to 1? Since when to Federation planets maintain their own Space Force? And there were hints it was from the Archer days- in which case it's pretty damn old and no way could they have retro fitted it in a few months to outgun Titan, one of the newest vessels in Starfleet.

Again, thanks for reading and hope you made it to the end!

HASH(0x97f0b7e0) von 5 Sternen Solid episode, weak crossover 1. August 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was torn between 2 and 3 stars, and finally decided that, though it wasn't what I wanted, it was a solid example of what it is. I haven't been reading any of the Trek ship series: I returned to the books for the Typhon Pact storyline, and picked up this one as a crossover.

Fallen Gods reads like an episode of TOS or TNG. Which, if that's what you're looking for, is great. I came for an ongoing storyline of galactic-political intrigue, and felt all the way through like I was reading something I've seen hundreds of times before on Trek episodes.

The alien machine intelligence A story is very, very classic Trek, and solidly done if formulaic. The B story, with Riker caught in the middle of a conflict over the status of his Andorian crew... It was a nice dilemma, again very much in the Trek episode tradition. My only complaint was a technical one: after hundreds of pages of buildup, the solution seemed abrupt and insufficiently grounded. Hints were there, but the end could've been better tied to the middle.

In all, it's much like a summer crossover in comics: however good the main storyline could be, the peripheral stories usually seem crammed in, and driven more by marketing than storytelling.

The next Typhon Pact entry releases at the end of the month; that, I'll be looking forward to.

HASH(0x97f0d6a8) von 5 Sternen Book 7 in the Titan Series 27. August 2012
Von SciFiChick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Now that Andor has left the Federation, Starfleet is trying to pull its Andorian crew from their positions aboard starships to supposedly lower profile postings elsewhere. And Captain Riker has been told to hand over all seven of his Andorian crew. They won't be forced to repatriate as Andor demands, but Riker and the rest of his crew aren't happy with Starfleet's decision.

Meanwhile, the Titan has noticed a planet affected by radiation from a nearby pulsar. And it's ancient technology has deteriorated to the point of near destruction for the remaining inhabitants. But when an ancient artificial intelligence is awoken, it reaches out to two of Titan's crew members for help in repairing the planet's defenses.

This is only the seventh book in the Titan series, but the crew already has a strong bond and camaraderie. The crew is very diverse with fascinating new characters as well as a handful of familiar ones. If you aren't current in the political climate of the "current" Star Trek universe, don't let that deter you. Plenty is explained here in regards to the Andorians and as with other series, this is mostly a standalone story. Yet the suspense and mystery builds with the Andorian situation and leaves off in a bit of a cliffhanger ending for several crewmembers. While part of the mystery aboard the Andorian ship is predictable, there is a surprising twist I didn't see coming in regards to an intriguing alliance. Fast-paced and full of fun adventure, Fallen Gods was an incredibly enjoyable read.

HASH(0x98af8bd0) von 5 Sternen Boring and Contrived (review contains some spoilers) 6. August 2012
Von Tony - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Positive
It is not as hideous as Seize the Fire.

The Negative
I found the aliens to be exceptionally boring. I had to force myself through the chapters in the book focusing on them. I honestly did not care at any point in the book if the "Trashers" won and ended up destroying their home world. The "religion destroys the world" theme has been done. Find a new theme.

I find the writing style to be exceptionally pretentious and off-putting. The author tries to make us believe in the alienness of the alien du jour by changing English words to alien words. "Subta'ithan" in place of "subterranean" for example. I read that and had to put down the book, it takes me completely out of the story. The historical references are odd, I find it hard to believe that Pazlar is going to use the Tacoma Narrows bridge example. Seems rather obscure to me, particularly for someone who wasn't born on Earth. Every Titan Andorian crewman was on the bridge when the Andorian ship arrived. That was just silly. Lastly, the explanation of things that don't require explanation - "Vale touched the control stud, and the hatch slid open, causing a serpent like hiss as the atmospheric pressure between inside and outside equalized." I think we all get why there would be a hiss.

The characterization is really flat. None of these characters have advanced in any way since Synthesis (or possibly Over a Torrent Sea). Ra-Havreii is still hung up about the explosion in the Luna engine room. This is tired and has been done better in the past. Pazlar is still using the holo-presence system. Pretty sure there was a group hug where Pazlar decided she wouldn't use the holo-presence in the Destiny trilogy. Let's follow the previous novel continuity. In the case of Troi, she has actually been regressed to being Riker's emotional thermometer. Exceptionally disappointing particularly when you review her characterization in prior books. Vale used to be fun, now she is kind of a martinet and really boring. Lastly, there was a huge missed opportunity to explore Tuvok's experience with the alien terraforming knowledge. Perhaps I should Martin-ize this and refer to it as "Ta'ithanforming" technology.

The Andorian subplot seemed both odd and contrived. How did the Therin get all the way out to Titan's position? The historian's note states that this book takes place two weeks after the events in Paths of Disharmony in which Andor withdrew from the Federation. So, in the midst of the political turmoil of leaving the Federation and the political re-organization that was occurring in the Andorian government, they had time to build a ship, crew it and send it out to Titan's position to retrieve seven Andorian crewmen? I assume they had to build a ship because it doesn't track to me that the Andorians would retain their own military after so many years in the Federation. Perhaps I am wrong on that part.

The entire objective, however, appears to be the retrieval of seven Andorians from Titan and potentially replacing them with brain washed copies. Wouldn't they focus on people a little closer to home? Or, assuming the Andorians may choose to enter the Typhon Pact, wouldn't it make MUCH more sense for the Andorians to be trying to place operatives to obtain the slipstream drive technology? It has been on the Typhon Pact's bucket list for the last several books, I would think making that happen would get the Andorians a huge Typhon Pact gold star for citizenship.

Presently, there is only one Star Trek book per month and there is only one Titan novel per year. Could we please give the Titan series to someone who can write well, provide a plot that is not contrived, provide a good story, provide good characterization and continue to develop the characters? There are so many excellent writers right now - David Mack, Kirsten Beyer, Christopher L. Bennett, David R. George III, Una McCormack - let them write the Titan books. If the Titan series continues to be written by Mr. Martin, I don't see a bright future for the series. That would be a shame as the premise and the characters are very interesting.
