Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

David Mack is the New York Times bestselling author of more than a dozen books, including Wildfire, Harbinger, Reap the Whirlwind, Road of BonesStar Trek: The Fall: A Ceremony of Losses, the Cold Equations trilogy, and the Star Trek Destiny trilogy—Gods of Night, Mere Mortals, and Lost Souls. His first original novel, the supernatural thriller The Calling, debuted in July 2009 to critical acclaim. In addition to novels, Mack’s diverse writing credits span several media, including television, film, short fiction, magazines, newspapers, comic books, computer games, radio, and the Internet. He currently resides in New York City.

Dayton Ward is a software developer, having become a slave to Corporate America after spending eleven years in the US Marine Corps. In addition to the numerous credits he shares with friend and cowriter Kevin Dilmore, he is the author of several Star Trek novels, the science fiction novels The Last World War, Counterstrike: The Last World War, Book II and The Genesis Protocol as well as short stories which have appeared in more than twenty anthologies. He’s also written for web sites such as Syfy.com, Tor.com, and StarTrek.com. He lives in Kansas City with his wife and daughters, but he’s a Florida native and maintains a torrid long-distance romance with his beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Find him on the web at DaytonWard.com.

Still reeling from the knowledge that Star Trek was a live-action series before it was a Saturday-morning cartoon, Kevin Dilmore is continually grateful for his professional involvement on the fiction and the nonfiction sides of the Star Trek universe for nearly a decade. Since 1997, he has been a contributing writer to Star Trek Communicator, penning news stories and personality profiles for the bimonthly publication of the Official Star Trek Fan Club. He has written for magazines including Amazing Stories, Star Wars Kids and FLIcK. Kevin’s interviews with some of Star Trek’s most popular authors appear in volumes of the Star Trek Signature Editions, published by Pocket Books. On the fictional side of things, his short stories include “The Road to Edos” in the Star Trek: New Frontier anthology No Limits and “Home on the Strange,” the first installment of Reality Cops: The Continuing Adventures of Vale and Mist for Phobos Books. With Dayton Ward, he has written the Star Trek: The Next Generation novels A Time to Sow and A Time to Harvest, a story for the anthology Star Trek: Tales of the Dominion War, eight installments of the continuing ebook series Star Trek: S.C.E. and the short story “Enemy Unknown!” for Rocket League—The Thrilling Roleplaying Game by Playus Maximus. Kevin lives in Kansas City, Missouri.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Four quite Gripping Tales 25. Juni 2011
Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This collection gives us four tales from before the establishment of the VANGUARD-station, the early time of the establishment and after the troubles really get big for Commodore Reyes. In each of the stories somebody else is the focus of events - first T'prynn and ambassador Jetanien, then Tim Pennington (one of the few first-person-narration in the ST-universe), Reyes and Desai and lastly Cervantes Quinn and Bridy Mac in a run-away spy-story.

All the stories are quite interesting and give more background or bring the VANGUARD-saga a bit more along. All the writers are old hands at ST and it certainly shows - as it shows, that they coordinated the contents of their stories. Quite satisfying, all in all.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding book by any measure 3. Juli 2011
Von Dayton Lavon Kitchens - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Vanguard Declassified is an outstanding addition to the Star Trek: Vanguard series. Star Trek: Vanguard might best be summarized as "Star Trek That Matters". In the universe of Star Trek: Vanguard, there is no "reset" button. Decisions have consequences. Mistakes cost peoples careers and lives. People are motivated by petty and insignificant things. Characters find themselves in way over their heads and can only muddle their way through. Heroes have feet of clay and villians sometimes prove useful and even vital.

And best of all in Vanguard, there are rarely any "character building" or "learning experiences" among the characters. The characters are all flawed adults when they are introduced. They are still flawed (mostly the same way) four years later. The same character with a drinking problem in the first novel still has one in Declassified.

Declassified continues this. The best of the four stories are by Dayton Ward and David Mack but the other two are very good as well. Four stories are longer and meatier than the typical short story but short enough they can be easily enjoyed in a single setting.

Finally, though a very powerful story arc is present throughout the Vanguard series, the individual stories and novels are surprisingly easy to follow on their own.

The Star Trek: Vanguard series is the best Star Trek literature has to offer today.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Set Phasers to Mildly Entertaining! 25. Juli 2011
Von Michael Lichter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
"Star Trek Vanguard: Declassified" is a collection of four mostly uninspired Trek novellas set in the Taurus Reach area of space, spanning a period of several years from just before "Harbinger" (Vanguard #1) to just after "Precipice (Vanguard #4)

"Almost Tomorrow" by Dayton Ward, which takes place prior to "Harbinger", shows how Federation officers on Starbase 47 smoked out Klingon spy Anna Sandesjo. It also chronicles, with mild steaminess, the beginning of Sandesjo's sexual relationship with intelligence officer T'Prynn, and fleshes out the back stories of other core characters before ending rather abruptly. (Rating: 3/5)

"Hard News" by Kevin Dilmore follows journalist Tim Pennington as he assists a young woman whose journalistic aspirations have entangled her in a dangerous web of crime and corruption. The events in "Hard News" take place during or shortly after those recounted in "Reap the Whirlwind" (Vanguard #3). If you're eager to know how Pennington feels about shapely women in sexy outfits, you'll not want to miss this one. (3/5)

In "The Ruins of Noble Men", when the Federation decides it has overextended itself in the Taurus Reach, two Vanguard officers must persuade the stubborn inhabitants of a scientific colony that they must evacuate. A decade earlier, some members of Vanguard's original crew faced a similar dilemma at an endangered colony. In the novella's sunny denouement, Palmieri pays homage to Gene Roddenberry's optimistic view that with reason, understanding, and a bit of courage you can solve virtually any problem. "Ruins" takes place shortly after "Precipice". "Ruins" is easily the best of the contributions and the one with the deepest ties to classic Trek. (4/5)

David Mack wrote "Precipice", so it's not surprising that his contribution, "The Stars Look Down", feels like a continuation of that novel. Adventurer Cervantes Quinn and Starfleet Intelligence officer Bridy Mac embark on a dangerous mission to capture a new cache of Shedai technology and prevent the Klingons from gaining access to it. Silly banter and tense action ensue, as does tragedy. Of the novellas collected here, "Stars" is the one most likely to have an impact on the forthcoming novel "What Judgments Come" (Vanguard #5). (3.5/5.0)

None of these novellas are bad, but, on the whole, they're not terribly deep, exciting, or revelatory. Dedicated Vanguard fans will appreciate having something to tide them over; everybody else can safely skip this one. None of the novellas (except perhaps "Ruins") stand well on their own; there's no point in reading "Declassified" before completing the first four Vanguard novels. (Average rating: 3.4/5.0)

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Introduction to the Series 20. Juli 2011
Von TerilynnS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Declassified is a single book with four short tales that revolve around Starbase 47 - Vanguard. As I am a recent new reader of the Vanguard series, I am confident in saying this book would be a perfect introduction to the anyone who might be toying with the idea of delving into the series.

Dayton Ward's well-written prequel "Almost Tomorrow" does much to not only introduce a new reader into the series and its characters (all of whom he has a wonderful grasp on - especially Commodore Reyes), but also into the station and the secrets it holds, without spoiling any of the intrigue from the first 5 full-length books. Of course, it also didn't hurt that a lot of the story got to focus on the U.S.S. Sagittarius and her incredible crew. Captain Nassir and Commodore Reyes have to fight for my heart I'm afraid!

While another reviewer seemed to have trouble with Kevin Dilmore's effort "Hard News" it is, in my opinion, simply his finest work to date. It is an incredible and at times painful tale of a character that is very, very human and one of which I was never particularly fond. The story is a brilliant bit of "missing piece" story-telling, taking place between two of the books in the timeline. It is also a rare 1st person tale that we don't often get in Trek books for obvious reasons. Dilmore made me love a character that I was put-off of in the first novel and that it no easy task.

My happiest surprise was Marco Palmieri's first and only contribution to the series. "The Ruins of Noble Men" became my favorite of the book and also provided me with my favorite line from the book. It was expertly crafted, and although the chapters bounce between both time and central characters, I never lost my way.

And finally in "The Stars Look Down" David Mack once again shows off why he carries the reputation that he does. He fears almost nothing. The final tale in the book revolves around his favorite character and it shows. Mack gives Cervantes Quinn his Don Quixote soul and never, ever apologizes for it. He's probably the most heart-breaking character in Trek to date.

It's strange - sometimes I think the Trek authors are better at, and I get more out of, the shorter character studies than in full-length novels. Also, it's at times when I read books like this that I wonder whether younger readers would ever really "get" the meat of the author's tales. Several times the books hit me hard emotionally and I had to wonder if it was because I might be a bit "longer in the tooth" than the average Trek reader. I'm not sure. All I know is that I'm okay with that.

All in all, Declassified is a perfect sampling of why the Vanguard series may be the best Trek series ever written and published. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen four excellent stories 2. Juli 2012
Von Andrew C. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the sixth installment in the outstanding Vanguard series. If you haven't read the first five books in this series (Harbinger through Precipice), stop now and read them. This book contains four short stories, two of which are set after Precipice.

"Almost Tomorrow" by Dayton Ward shows us the beginning of several key relationships on Vanguard. "Hard News" by Kevin Dilmore is a funny first-person account of Tim Pennington's days after his stories led to Reyes' arrest. "The Ruins of Noble Men" by Marco Palmieri puts Desai and Fisher in a trouble spot, with flashbacks to Reyes' days as a captain. Finally, "The Stars Look Down" by David Mack gives us another adventure with Quinn and Bridy Mac. There are some significant developments in these last two stories.

All of the stories in this book are engaging. The only down side is that three out of the four stories ended on a depressing note. I don't know if that was intentional, but the book certainly left me with some mixed emotions. Even so, I am eager to start the next book in the series (Star Trek: Vanguard: What Judgments Come).

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'm so glad they continued this series 27. August 2011
Von Gregory O'brien - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
A very necessary addendum to the vanguard series. My only problem with the Vanguard series is the length of time between releases (*ahem ahem, Mr. Ward and Mr. Mack). All talented writers, and always enjoyable reads. So much so I've forayed into their non-Trek books, which are equally as entertaining.
