Kurzbeschreibung

29. März 2005 Star Trek: Errand of Fury (Buch 1)
Following the harrowing events of the Errand of Vengeance trilogy, tensions between the Federation and the Klingon Empire are the highest they have been for twenty-five years. Even as Federation Ambassador Robert Fox engages in tense negotiations with his Klingon counterpart to maintain the peace, Captain James T. Kirk of the Starship Enterprise sees his vessel refitted from a ship of exploration to a ship of war. The impact of the coming conflict will be felt by many of the Enterprise crew - and by those on the other side. Amongst them is security supervisor Leslie Parrish, who is stunned to learn she is carrying her dead lover's child - and that he was a Klingon spy, surgically altered to pass as human and infiltrate Kirk's ship. Meanwhile Karel, the brother of the Klingon agent who was posing as John Anderson, faces a crisis of faith and conscience as he sees the Klingon Empire falling into dishonourable ruin...And Michael Fuller, whose son Sam was killed in a battle with Klingons, reenlists in Starfleet. But is he driven by loyalty or revenge?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gut 15. Juli 2005
Von Defcon
Format:Taschenbuch
Ein guter Roman.
An diesem Roman mag ich, dass er größtenteils aus der Sicht unbekannter Charaktere geschrieben ist, obwohl ein großer Teil an Bord der Enterprise spielt, so bekommt man mal eine etwas andere Perspektive. Die Ereignisse in der Kirk-Ära sind zwar eher actionarm und beinhalten größtenteils den Aufbau der Storylines für die Trilogie, aber das gleicht Kevin Ryan durch die Geschichte der Schlacht von Donatu V aus. Ich habe die vorhergehende Errand of Vengeance Trilogie nicht gelesen, aber auch ohne dieses Hintergrundwissen ist das Buch gut zu verstehen, auch wenn das Lesevergnügen wahrscheinlich noch erhöht wird, wenn man diese Bücher zuerst liest. Etwas was dem Buch nicht wirklich schadet, aber irgendwie etwas seltsam ist, ist das der Roman auf klingonischer Seite etwas am „kleine Welt" - Syndrom leidet, wir haben Koloth, ein Mitglied des Haus von Gorkon und einen Duras.
Die Charakterisation der bekannten Charaktere sind stimmig und die neuen Charaktere eigentlich durchgängig interessant und durchdacht. Zwar hätte ich über einige gerne etwas mehr Hintergrundinfos, aber ich nehme an das wurde in der vorhergehenden Trilogie abgedeckt.
Insgesamt ein vielversprechender Start in die „Errand of Fury" - Trilogie.

Star Trek-The Original Series: River of Blood: Errand of Vengeance written by Kevin Ryan is the third installment of this trilogy (The Edge of the Sword, Killing Blow, and River of Blood). This trilogy is a Klingon based story, a story of cunning, deception, vengeance, murder, intrigue, and truth and honor to Kahless's path.
This third book takes up where the second book left off and adds a great deal of richness to the story plot. The plot is being to kill Captain James T. Kirk by a surgically altered Klingon infiltrator Kell/Jon Anderson. Sworn to destroy the enemies of the Empire... even at the cost of their own honor, Kell/ Jon Anderson is having second thoughts. Why, you say? Well it seems that the propaganda mill of the Klingon Empire is working overtime, and an honorable Klingon does NOT go to war... especially if there is no honor in it, according to Kahless.
We read a lot about honor and truth, but there is guile, cunningness, and knavery also. As the Klingons prepare for a war with the Federation, they need Starship Grade dilithium crystals. A planet is found by the Orions, not too far from the Federation/Klingon boarder on the third planet in Systen 7348, but this planet in inhabited by a pre-warp society... a Klingon-like society.
What I liked about this book is that even though Kirk was to be killed, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy were not the focus of this series... the focus was on how Kell/ Jon Anderson evolved and had second thoughts... a good fleshing out of the character as he and Parrish have a romantic involvement, but Kell/Jon Anderson pulls away as his mission becomes a burden.
There is another interesting subplot in this book and that is Kell's brother Karel as he learns the truth about the war with the Federation.

Von K. Beck-Ewerhardy TOP 1000 REZENSENT

Zum Inhalt wurde schon genug gesagt, darum hier nur meine abschliießende Meinung:

Ein erfreulicher Anschluss an "Errand of Vengeance" und für sich genommen eine Geschichte, die Lust auf die Folgebände weckt.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Kevin Ryan Strikes Again! A Fast and Furious Star Trek Tale 11. Juli 2005
Von L. Brantley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
For any Star Trek fan - from the hardcore to the casual - who ever wanted an answer to the question of what all those OTHER crewmen and women were up to on the Enterprise, Kevin Ryan is the must-read author in this Trek universe. His ability to spin richly detailed stories and create sympathatic characters who were, in most cases, passers-by in the TV series, is unmatched. In SEEDS OF RAGE ( a sequel to the Errand of Fury trilogy) we begin - at long last - to understand the human element in the run-up to the Federation/ Klingon war.

We find a father grieving and raging over the death of his son. A career woman at war with herself over an impossible choice. An alien culture fighting to retain its own honor. And all this against the backdrop of a seemingly unaviodable galactic conflict. This is not merely a great Star Trek story. This is a great story, period.

Kevin Ryan's books make for good reading. They are fast, engaging, and true to the source material. Do yourself a favor, and get started on them today!

4.0 von 5 Sternen A fast-paced Klingon adventure, revisiting the lower decks! 11. April 2005
Von Ian McLean - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As Star Trek fans might recall, "The Janus Gate" (LA Graf) and "Errand of Vengeance" (Kevin Ryan) trilogies were part of a Pocket Books experiment in 2002 to supposedly "relaunch" the "original series" Star Trek novels with a deeper look into, and weaving between, known TOS episodes via Kirk's Enterprise's "lower decks" crew - based, I guess, on the popularity of the episode "Lower Decks" in TNG, where viewers got to see a new perspective on day-to-day Enterprise-D ship life.

LA Graf set their adventure just after "The Naked Time" and before "Charlie X". They used several characters who would soon suffer tragedy in "Balance of Terror". Ryan then set his first trilogy just after "Balance of Terror", with some of the action taking place simultaneously with "What Are Little Girls Made Of?" but before "Dagger of the Mind". He also used the surname-less Sam from "Charlie X" and rounded out that character. Following "production order", readers might realise that the unresolved brewing Klingon war theme would ultimately be revisited in the TV episode "Errand of Mercy".

When the first six books' resulting stories turned out to be not all that different in style to most other TOS novels, Pocket's ST editors decided to absorb them back into the usual run of TOS fiction. Out of the blue, or so it seemed, came 2005's new Ryan instalment, the first of a sequel set of novels called "Errand of Fury". The new action in "Seeds of Rage" picks up just after the events of the episode "The Devil in the Dark" (thus "Errand of Mercy" is almost upon us).

"Seeds of Rage", and the next books, promise to reveal exciting stuff about Sam [Fuller]'s vengeful father, Michael, and the fate of original Kevin Ryan character, Leslie Parrish. "Seeds of Rage" is a great read! It moves at such a fast pace that noone should have trouble finding the time to read "Errand of Fury: Seeds of Rage" all over again, if they need a memory boost, when the next instalment, "Demands of Honor", comes out in 2006.

What I really love about both the "Errand of Vengeance" trilogy, and this first book in "Errand of Fury", are the high concept, out-of-left field, what-ifs Kevin Ryan throws into the mix. In the first trilogy it was "What if a minor redshirt we saw in 'What Are Little Girls Made Of?' was a Klingon agent, and what if there were others?" and in this one it's "What if an Enterprise redshirt fell pregnant to such an agent?" Doing this makes the stories compelling, and adds to their page-turner nature. Even though we think we know how the events of the TV episodes turn out, Ryan puts a unique spin on our expectations, as his stories weave throughout the action of existing episodes.

It doesn't matter that you haven't seen episodes such as "A Taste of Armageddon" (to know Ambassador Fox better) or "Errand of Mercy" (which introduces Kor and the Klingons to TOS audiences) but, if you have, you are in for many additional treats when reading "Seeds of Rage".

5.0 von 5 Sternen Will we see the conclusion Next Year?? 1. April 2005
Von Picardfan007 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I loved the three part series by former Star Trek editor Kevin Ryan because they take place in the original series era. I hope they give him the chance to finish this saga. I don't see anywhere on the Trek book schedule parts II and III! Do we have to wait till next year to finish this series?

What I do love about it is it doesn't focus on Kirk, Spock and McCoy. We get to see the other crew members in action. They might not survive at the end of the novel and that is what makes it so interesting.

As a fan of Trek I know that our favorites will always win. In these novels there's a bit more suspense because you don't know what will happen next.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent story, a sequel to the author's previous trilogy. 7. Mai 2007
Von James Yanni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Of course, it continues to have the problem of not having an ending. I prefer multi-part stories in which each part has one complete story-arc of its own, but this is rarely seen, and this book is no exception. It is simply the first third of a story. Other than that I have little to complain about; the plot, pacing, characterizations, action, are all excellent.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Kevin Ryan is quickly becoming my favorite ST author!!! 28. Juni 2005
Von Jumbo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
So far, Mr. Ryan's books have been breaths of fresh air in the ST franchise. He gracefully ties his new adventures to those in the original series. If you're a fan who likes to know what goes on below decks after Kirk calls for "Red Alert," than this books is for you.

I can't wait for the next one!
