Kurzbeschreibung

One simple act, and the troubles of the United Federation of Planets have grown darker overnight. The mystery behind the heinous terrorist attack that has rocked the Federation to its core grows ever deeper, and William Riker finds himself beset by rumors and half-truths as the U.S.S. Titan is ordered back to Earth on emergency orders from the admiralty. Soon, Riker finds himself drawn into a game of political intrigue, bearing witness to members of Starfleet being detained—including people he considered friends—pending an investigation at the highest levels. And while Riker tries to navigate the corridors of power, Titan’s tactical officer, Tuvok, is given a series of clandestine orders that lead him into a gray world of secrets, lies, and deniable operations. Who can be trusted when the law falls silent and justice becomes a quest for revenge? For the crew of the U.S.S. Titan, the search for answers will become a battle for every ideal the Federation stands for. . . .

4.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-moving plot and real page-turner 24. Dezember 2013
Von Clinton Illar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After the first three books in the series, I had high expectations for this book and it did not disappoint. It delved into the political mess in the federation and gave some, but not, of the answers raised in the other books. It sets the stage for what we can hope will be a thrilling conclusion to the series.

I always find the Titan books to be hard to read, with all the exotic aliens in the crew being something of a distraction and many of the plots so far out that it is difficult to maintain interest. This book mostly avoided those pitfalls, focusing more on Riker, Vale, and Tuvok, as well as bringing in Nog. Akaar continues to be a great character as throughout the rest of this series, and the plot is superbly organized. I wish the final book were already out - it is going to be hard to wait a week and a day!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Admiral Riker 16. Februar 2014
Von J. Graganta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm a Star Trek fan and I enjoy reading. I don't mind book "series", other then the fact when it takes a LONG time for them to come out. The release rate of this series, "The Fall" is a good speed/rate. You can read the book, re-read it and still have it in your mind when the next book comes out- you won't forget it.

As the starship on the cover shows, this is the USS Titan, under the command of Capt. William Thomas Riker. It took long enough for him to be put in the 'center seat', but the head of Starfleet, Admiral Leonard James Akaar (yes, he's named after Capt. James T Kirk and Dr. Leonard McCoy- go find the TOS series episode to under stand). had different ideas. In the last book of the series, Akaar needed a man he could trust.....(and left us hanging wondering who it was). This book, answers who that person was..... Will Riker! And this time, he wasn't able to decline the promotion.....take it or get out of Starfleet!!!!

(Also, the price of ordering via Amazon was less then the list price on the book...)
4.0 von 5 Sternen The strongest book in The Fall miniseries thus far. 4. September 2014
Von Richard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The fourth book of "The Fall" miniseries, this story focuses on William Riker and the crew of the USS Titan. This book is set in the year 2385, about 6 years after Captain Riker began his adventures aboard Titan after the movie Star Trek: Nemesis.

Unlike the last couple books in this miniseries, this title works to bring all those previous plotlines together and provide a more singular focus. This is the books greatest strength as it gives everything a greater sense of purpose and urgency. It also marks the point where the heroes seems to stop reacting to the events around them and start acting to rectify the source of the problems.

The story focuses on Riker's efforts to investigate the strange dealings that have been happening within the Federation over the course of the last few books. Over the course of the story schemes and masterminds are revealed and the heroes begin taking steps to thwart them. The book, while not being strictly an action story manages to keep up a strong steady pace which some of the previous books in the series have lacked.

The only real flaws with the story are the endings seeming lack of short term consequences. Aside from resolving a couple hanging plot threads from a previous book, the status quo remains relatively unchanged. Despite the clashes the heroes and villains both come out relatively unscathed with the only outcome being that they both know they are enemies now. The books ending clearly paves the way for the next book in the series to resolve the miniseries.

With all that said, I found the book to be a breath of fresh air in an otherwise dull miniseries. This book seemed overcome the flaws of poor pacing that the previous books have suffered from. A very solid addition to an otherwise mediocre miniseries.

4.0 von 5 Sternen One of the better books in the series. 29. November 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Probably one of the better books in the series. I wish that some of the conclusion aspects weren't delayed into the next novel but of course with this being a monthly production it can be expected. Perhaps some of the events surrounding Velk and the Pro Tem will be explained better in the next book as a lot of motives to why things have transpired just weren't there. In this book you get to see Nog be a good star trek officer and also you get to see what happens when a psychopath is able to keep a starfleet uniform on.
