For centuries, the Elabrej believed that they were alone in the universe, and that no sentient life existed outside their home star system. But their certainty is shattered when a controversial exploration vessel of their own making encounters - and fires upon - an alien ship. The aliens return fire and destroy them - and then come to Elabrej to investigate. Meanwhile the crew of the I.K.S. Gorkon, exploring the uncharted Kavrot sector, learn that their brother ship, the I.K.S. Kravokh, was attacked by an unknown alien vessel and subsequently destroyed it. After setting a course to investigate this new people, the Kravokh disappears - but a massive alien fleet is gathering at its last known location. Captain Klag must find out what happened to the Kravokh, and who this unknown foe of the Empire may be...
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.
One of the things I really like about this series is the way it takes normal Star Trek tropes and turns them on their heads. In the case of ET, there is an alien-of-the-week type culture in which there is an oppressive governmental leadership and an existing separtist movement intent on overthrowing that leadership. Had this been a TNG story, the characters would have had to balance their desire to help out the oppressed with the dictates of the Prime Directive. That was interesting 18 years ago, but nowadays we've all seen that before. Good thing that this isn't the TNG crew. Instead, the Gorkon crew gets enmeshed in this conflict and chooses sides based on the best possible way to wreak revenge Spoiler:(Go Captain Koth of the Battlecruiser Vengeance! Haha!) for the destruction of a Chancellor class vessel.
KRAD also seasons the story by making the aliens-of-the-week truly alien. The Elabrej are Spoiler:six-legged creatures without heads, who can see 360 degrees around and of course, because of their differences, have certain notions of the physical world that the Klingons (and we human readers) lack. In fact, KRAD doesn't even allow a full description of the Elebrej until nearly half way through when the Klingons finally meet them face to face. Before that, he drops tantalizing hints from the point of view of Elabrej characters that give some ideas what they look like.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
