Kurzbeschreibung

26. Oktober 2004 Star Trek: S.C.E (Buch 6)
Wherever there is a need to fix a malfunction or rescue a damaged ship, the Federation calls in the crack team from Starfleet S.C.E. From finding a Starfleet vessel lost inside a holographic ship, to checking out new technology captured during the Dominion War, no task is too bizarre or too dangerous for Captain David Gold, Commander Sonya Gomez and their crew of S.C.E. troubleshooters on board the USS da Vinci. However their mission to Galvan VI could prove their greatest challenge yet. Not only must they salvage the USS Orion from the turbulent atmosphere of a gas giant, but the Orion is carrying the prototype of the deadly Wildfire device, a protomatter warhead that can ignite gas giants into stars. And to complicate matters still further they encounter an unknown alien life-form that may have lured the USS Orion to its destruction...

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Keith R.A. DeCandido was born and raised in New York City to a family of librarians. He has written over two dozen novels, as well as short stories, nonfiction, eBooks, and comic books, most of them in various media universes, among them Star Trek, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Marvel Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Resident Evil, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Farscape, Xena, and Doctor Who. His original novel Dragon Precinct was published in 2004, and he's also edited several anthologies, among them the award-nominated Imaginings and two Star Trek anthologies. Keith is also a musician, having played percussion for the bands the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, the Boogie Knights, and the Randy Bandits, as well as several solo acts. In what he laughingly calls his spare time, Keith follows the New York Yankees and practices kenshikai karate. He still lives in New York City with his girlfriend and two insane cats.

David Mack is the national bestselling author of more than a dozen books, including Wildfire, Harbinger, Reap the Whirlwind, Road of Bones, 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 (for episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine), film, short fiction, magazines, newspapers, comic books, computer games, radio, and the Internet. Recent novels include The 4400: Promises Broken, Star Trek Vanguard: Precipice, and an expanded edition of his Mirror Universe tale The Sorrows of Empire. Mack has been to shows in every Rush concert tour since 1982, and he finally met two-thirds of the band in 2007. He currently resides in New York City.

4.0 von 5 Sternen S.C.E. - Das modernere Trek 25. November 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
Der Star-Trek-Franchise ist im Moment auf dem absteigenden Ast.
Der letzte Kinofilm war ein Flop, und das nicht zu Unrecht, denn trotz guter Absichten hätte er noch einige Überarbeitung gebraucht. Die Einschaltquoten der aktuellen Serie "Enterprise" sind rückläufig, und der Spieleentwickler Activision gibt die Rechte an der Star Trek-Lizenz zurück und verklagt Viacom, da sie zuwenig für den Star Trek-Franchise getan habe (d.h. in absehbarer Zeit keine Computerspiele mit Star Trek als Thema mehr).
Auch die Neukonzeption der "Enterprise"-Serie (die Jagd nach den Xindi) wird am momentanen Abstieg nicht viel ändern, tritt sie doch in der neuen Season gegen den Quotenhit "Smallville" an.
Umso erstaunlicher ist die Entwicklung auf dem Buchsektor. Sucht man nach unkonventionellen, frischen Ideen, so ist man hier bestens bedient. Peter Davids "New Frontier"-Serie wandelt immer haarscharf am Rand einer Parodie, in dem er Star Trek kräftig gegen den Strich bürstet.
Der DS9-Relaunch ist sehr gelungen, endlich gibt es eine übergreifende Kontinuität innerhalb der Bücher. Und die Freiheit, die hier, außerhalb der engen Grenzen einer TV-Produktion möglich ist, sorgen für Überraschungen im DS9-Universum. (neue Charaktere, viele Wendungen: Kiras Exkommunikation aus der bajoranischen Kirche, die Rückkehr von Kai Opaka, der Tod Shakaars, Bajors Beitritt in die Föderation etc.)
Eines der neben "New Frontier" etablierten, völlig neuen Formate ist das "Starfleet Corps of Engineers". Eine Reihe junger "Star Trek"-Autoren schreibt in einem vorgegebenem Rahmen abgeschlossene Erzählungen, die aber in einem gemeinsamen Zusammenhang stehen.

SCE #20: Enigma Ship
Die da Vinci trifft auf ein Holoschiff, in dem ein Schiff der Sternenflotte sich verirrt. Es ist schwer, die Balance zwischen Fiktion und Realität herzustellen und viele Millionen Lebewesen sind wie das Starfleetschiff darin gefangen...

SCE #21/22: War Stories
Die Androssi, Erzfeinde der da Vinci-Crew, sind zwar intelligente Ingenieure, handeln aber skrupellos und verkaufen an den Höchstbietenden. Ihre installierte Ware können Sie in eine andere Dimension schicken. So ist es auch nicht verwunderlich, dass der Yridianer, der Biron, Captain der Androssi, Informationen über die da Vinci Crew der letzten zwei Jahre verkauft, mit seinem Schiff vernichtet wird, nachdem die als Gegenleistung installierten Ersatzteile an den Maschinen in einer anderen Dimension verschwinden. U. a. erfährt Biron so von Lense Problemen mit der Sternenflotte, die glaubte, dass auch sie ein Augment ist. Die gute Doktorin wurde während wichtiger Kriegsmonate auf einer Starbase festgehalten. Daher gibt sie sich auch die Schuld an dem Tod einiger Crewmitglieder, die die U. S. S. LEXINGTON erlitten hat. Bart Faulwell hingegen hat erfolgreich versucht den Code des Dominion zu knacken. Sonya Gomez vermochte es, ihr Schiff hinter den feindlichen Linien sicher ins Föderationsgebiet zu bringen. Biron beabsichtigt, die Crew zu vernichten...

SCE #23/24: Wildfire
Eine zunächst langweilige Mission entwickelt sich zum Desaster. Die vorliegende Geschichte gehört bislang zu den besten und ergreifendsten der gesamten SCE-Reihe. Es ist so eine Art Wolf 359 für diese Serie...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Worst of the Series 24. Juni 2011
Von J.Z. Watkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As far as its written, well. As a premise I wonder what where they thinking when someone pitched this idea and someone else said yes. As another reviewer so aptly put it, I read for the escapism, to be entertained, sometimes to have my mind blown away with an interesting concept or a nice commentary. This appeared to me as an author having a bad day and taking it out on the characters. The other review, titled lost as a reader is right. The next several books does not just dwell on the aftermath, they wallow in it. What began as a series I had bought faithfully and loved the premise and characters, turned into a fading glory.

In somewhat fairness it seems to be the trend these days. Killing off characters to prove they can die and there is jeopardy we (the readers) should expect and not gloss over. However, I read (or watch a series, yes I mean you SG and SGA) to bond with a set of characters and go through adventures not with the will they survive mentality, but with either how do they get out of this one or purely to go through the adventure with them seeing them react and how it affects them.

If the goal of the author was to make all these deaths so heroic, it failed. The deaths were cheapened by the sheer number of them. I could only go through so much before it changes from oh no, not him/her, before it became oh not another one.

Worst of all, we have to read about the survivors wallowing in grief (not just grieving I mean -wallowing-) for books, -books- to come. I've actually stopped reading the series now (several books later).

Its a shame this book couldn't be taken back and said 'ooops we didn't mean it', but its here. If you love deaths a plenty, buy it. If not, don't bother. I'd say skip it, but the next several books will visit this one again, and again, and again ad nauseam. I do mean that.

Its a shame, the ending of a great series. I'll have the earlier books of their 'golden era' to enjoy.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Very powerful, very gripping story. 4. April 2008
Von James Yanni - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This story does just about the best job I've seen of any Star Trek book of conveying the emotions a crew will feel during a disastrous mission when many of their crewmates die. I dock it one star because the threat itself seemed rather contrived and had a definite feel of "seen that before, been there, done that"; both the alien energy intelligences living in the gas giant atmosphere and the protomatter terraforming device have been done before, and I have my doubts that Starfleet would ever consider using such a thing. But the character interactions were perfect, and the heroism displayed by the whole crew, including minor characters, was a delight to see; this is what I read Star Trek for: the idea that human beings (and other sentient life forms) are capable of great heroism is somewhat passe in most other forms of literature these days, and I enjoy seeing characters responding to crises with competence and true heroism now and again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Burn Baby Burn 9. Juni 2005
Von Sxottlan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
So I finished the latest SCE anthology Wildfire. Overall, it's one of the better books of the year despite some quibbles. Won't prattle on, so here's some thoughts on the individual stories.

"Enigma Ship": An interesting tale of a completely holographic starship. Among the stories of the SCE, it's a pretty standard problem-solving storyline, but I liked the idea of a ship that's a whole hologram. All of the character work was pretty good and being a Trek ship nut, I really liked seeing one of the characters designing an SCE starship in his spare time. However, the ending got very muddled as to what happened and how it was resolved.

"War Stories": A great little collection of stories about the crew of the da Vinci during the Dominion War. The unifying story about Biron going through the files of the crew to better understand them is fairly disposable and feels more like set up for some confrontation in the future. Of the four smaller stories within the novella, the last two dealing with Gomez and the da Vinci's mission to the communications array were my favorite. These two had the most sustained and descriptive battle scenes and were the most enjoyable. Bart's story was noteworthy for his first meeting with Anthony.

"Wildfire": Leaving aside the fact that the whole plot is a complete rip-off of James Cameron's The Abyss, save for one crucial difference, the much talked about two-parter is quite good. It was interesting reading about a rescue ship that needed rescuing and there was good sustained tension throughout. I'm seriously not a person that thinks change for the sake of itself is really necessary, so I'm not entirely sold on the idea of wasting half the crew to "shake things up". The segment with the repeated scenes of death over and over again eventually deadens the impact it might have had i.e. any time a character's background or family was mentioned, you might as well as kiss that character good-bye because they're about to bite the dust. So the tragedy is laid on pretty thick, but I can appreciate the attempt to get more serious with the SCE, a series that has always taken more chances to begin with.

Overall, a very solid batch of stories this time around. The SCE continues to be my favorite ship-based Trek book series. It's too bad that they're slashing the Trek book production by half, meaning we're going to have to just scrap by as the SCE paperback offerings will become increasingly meager.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just lost me as a reader 30. November 2006
Von Wood - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I have thoroughly enjoyed the "SCE" series, and have read them in order. Characters and relationships are what makes Star Trek books great. While the stories in this book were well-written, and I have enjoyed these authors in past books, I found this book much less enjoyable due to the widespread death and destruction. The ending of "Wildfire" ensured that the next book will be even less enjoyable. I read Star Trek books for pure escapism. I don't want to be weighed down with grief. I read to be entertained. And they killed off the most entertaining character, for pete's sake! I don't plan on suffering throught the emotional fallout the next book promises.
