Kurzbeschreibung

An original novel set in the universe of Star Trek: The Original Series!

2268: Following the encounter with the mysterious Gary Seven in the twentieth century, the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise is startled by two intruders who have transported through space and time from Earth circa 1968. Incredibly, one of the infiltrators is a Vulcan, who asserts that he’s lived among Earth's population for over a decade. The otherrepresents a little-known race, and reveals to Captain James T. Kirk that she has spent that last twenty years working to bring about humanity’s destruction. It is then that Gary Seven’s young protégé, Roberta Lincoln, arrives seeking Kirk’s help...

1947: In the wake of the infamous “Roswell Incident” involving a crashed alien craft and beings from another world, Captain James Wainwright finds himself recruited as one of the first members of Majestic 12, a secret organization with two goals: Collect evidence of extraterrestrial activity on Earth, and develop strategies to combat alien invaders. And it is this very mission that will consume Wainwright’s life for the next two decades, driven by the knowledge that the danger is as real as the aliens living among us...

In Verbindung mit den Ideen aus "Assignment Earth" und anderen Zeitreisegeschichten der alten ENTERPRISE, "Little Green Men" und dem Kalten Zeitkrieg entwickelt Dyton ward hier eine Geschichte, die viele der Verschwörungstheorien um Majestic, Blue Book und Roswell mit einbezieht und so eine der fruchtbarsten Quellen für SF-Literatur und Mystery-Serien eng mit Star Trek verbindet.

Es entsteht so eine überaus gelungene Konstruktion, in der wir unter anderem Gary Seven und seiner mutigen Sekretärin wieder begegnen. Nicht nur für ST-Fans eine empfehlenswerte Leseanschaffung.

HASH(0x9ae68b28) von 5 Sternen Bored? Confused? Some of both, I think. 2. August 2013
Von Ficwriter1966 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I came across the description of this book in my Kindle recommendations, I thought, "Oh! Gary Seven and Roberta Lincoln? That was a great, fun episode, and I'd love to read more about them."

Unfortunately, the author of "From History's Shadow" gives us very little of the intriguing Seven-Lincoln duo, choosing instead to focus on an endless roster of original characters, none of whom are developed in enough depth to make them interesting. The author's habit of "telling" rather than "showing" leads to pages upon pages of exposition - what's happened to the character in question during the preceding months, weeks, or years; the history of Project Blue Book and the American space program; the Temporal Cold War, you name it. Protagonists Wainwright and Marshall (and the enormous supporting cast) are moved from place to place like cardboard cutouts, and I found myself unable to care about what any of them were doing or why they were doing it, at any point during the proceedings. The one original character I did like was unceremoniously killed about 2/3 of the way through, then to be mourned by no one.

About a quarter of the book takes place aboard the Enterprise, and those scenes play much more successfully, with a good deal of drama arising between our familiar crew and some belligerent aliens. I found myself wishing during every Enterprise scene that the author had chosen to spend much more time there, and to cut way back on the tedious run of "he did this, and she did that, then he did this" scenes taking place in 1940s, 1950s and 1960s Earth.

I gave up trying to keep up with the flood of Trek novels back in the early 1990s, and since then have only picked one up occasionally, eager to spend a little time revisiting the universe I loved so much "back in the day." I wish this experience had turned out better, and that I could recommend the book to other fans. Sorry, Mr. Ward - you started with an interesting premise, but it didn't succeed, at least not for this particular reader.

Von Barbara Mcauliffe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I had high hopes for this book; sadly...

According to this book Earth is like the (supposed) Yogi Berra quote: Nobody goes there anymore; it's too crowded. We've got aliens all over the place. Some may like being introduced to new species, but I have to have a reason to be interested in all these folks.

Trek is totally character driven. The plots, in the series, movies and books are derivative and just so so, but the characters!!! That is what makes Trek outstanding. In this book the Original Series characters are just shown as being professionals doing their jobs. I don't have a problem with that. There are a whole bunch of new characters being introduced and, frankly, I couldn't tell them apart and didn't care.

For example: Wainright's wife leaves him, taking their child. Wainright says he is very upset about this but he goes on with nary a glace back. I think the divorce was introduced to make us see what sacrifices the man makes to do his job, but since he doesn't seem to care, it doesn't make me think he's that much of a hero. At one point he gets a new companion, but even that seems to come about and go along with no emotion at all.

There's a Vulcan who is here for no good reason. There are new to us aliens who are here to destroy Earth, and the question has to be asked: Why weren't they sent with the weapons to do just that? There's another bunch of aliens in Original Series time who wants to destroy everyone for no reason I could understand. Or rather I understood the reason but it was just silly.

Things go round and round and we end up where we think we should end up with no insight about anything whatsoever.

The writing is clear, but this book is just boring and I would not recommend this to anyone,

HASH(0x9b9fd468) von 5 Sternen Self-references and endless talking 10. September 2013
Von Jordan Hofer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I must say, I really wanted to like this book. Before I say why I did not like it all that much, I'll give the positives. The author is extremely good at writing dialogue, which is very rare in a "Star Trek" book. The author also does a good job of setting up the potential for a really good story.
I was really hoping for a genre-bender here, given the cover and description of the book--something between Original "Trek" and "The X-Files." Instead, the book is filled with self-referencing "Star Trek" trivia that span far more than the Original Series. There's some "Enterprise," some "Deep Space Nine," and some "Voyager." Not what I would call Original "Trek." Instead of all this self-referencing there could have been a really cool and original story about the crew of the Enterprise encountering Gray aliens, Men in Black, and flying saucers. Spock could have been abducted and given an implant. Chekov could have received an anal probe, which would have allowed for his trademark scream. Seriously, this could have been a really great book mixing the "Star Trek" and ufology mythologies. But no, just self-referencing. And talking in place of action, telling instead of showing, for hundreds of pages.
I can write a better "Star Trek" novel and someday I intend to prove it.

The book is very slow. The plot involves many characters unique to the book rather than our long remembered friends.

Von T. Haight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Don't get me wrong. I will continue to read ST and likely even read another Dayton Ward book if I see one and it looks interesting. This review is not some total hatchet job or rant. I love Star Trek and have read probably a hundred ST novels from all the series'.

I see what the author wanted to do here. It just really sorta jumps around a bit too much and new characters appearing out of nowhere almost. Although, I was happy to see Mestral again :)

For a better treatment of jumping from Star Trek epoch to epoch, I would recommend the magisterial "FEDERATION" by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.
