In "Tribbles and Tribulations" we first had met the two agents Lucsly and Dulmur of the Department of Temporal Investigation (DTI). After this they mostly made appearances in several short stories and novels whenever time-travel had become a real problem.

In this novel we learn a bit more about the two agents and the agency they work for. In a time when a number of assaults from the future hit the Federation just after the Borg are vanquished and the Typhon Pact is forming the DTi gets a lot to do and has to coordinate with agencies from several futures - which is really not easy because all try to avoid "spoilers" as River Song in "Dr. Who" calls it. The Cold Time War, that has already troubled Cpt. Archer so much seems not really finished and endangers the whole of several realities.

A lot of story and history and a lot of quite hard science and philosophy to time and its nature which is luckily a bit annotated in the end makes this a quite complex novel that is not always easy to read - but fun if one likes to bend someone's own mind.

Just finished reading this GREAT time-adventure book (couldn't put it aside)! Clearly a MUST-HAVE for every dedicated Star-Trek fan, although it contains 'heavy stuff' someTIMES at someplace in time...

I had a really good time reading WTC. Bennett manages to include all Star Trek Universe time-anomaly incidents in one compelling story and even creates a bigger picture by elaborating on the Temporal Cold War story. Being based on state-of-the-art temporal science, for me WTC was at times challenging to read, but never over-taxing and always still on the entertaining side.

HASH(0xa9651f2c) von 5 Sternen Some quality Star Trek from a very unexpected quarter 4. Mai 2011
Von Adrian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I first saw the title, I actually closed the page and went to another site, because it conjured images of those two boring fuddy duddy investigators who interviewed Sisko and co in the DS9 episode where they went back in time to prevent Captain James T Kirk's assassination.

But due to a lack of books to read (I can be a voraceous reader), I ordered this book and I must say I am very glad I did! It is excellent, especially after 4 mediocre Typhon Pact novels.

This novel goes into some depth into the background of the department of tempaoral affairs, has many fasincating adventures, is quite character driven, always giving at least a few pages into how most of the main characters got into their temporal jobs, showed how important their jobs were, and let me say that the last 20-30 pages were quite a surprise to me...in a good way, not bad! There are plenty of examples where events which happened to TOS, TNG, DS9 and Voyager series' really do need the temporal agents to come in and fix things, or at least use the events to see a larger picture, which is classified and hence most of the Federation sees them as a beurocratic joke.

There is even some present day (in the TNG universe, that is) crossover with some TNG characters- Captain Riker's crew of the Titan, and Worf, and Chaudry of the Enterprise.

If you, like me, are hesitant about this book when you see the words "Department of Temporal Investigations" because of the DS9 episode, please let me allay your fears. Get it. It's one of the good Star Trek books.

Thanks for reading :)

I forgot to add something. In one scene, 2 agents are interviewing Captain Janeway after she returns from the Delta Quadrant. It's only a page or two, I haven't seen her name used except in passing for several books now ever since she died, and I realised how much I missed her. I said it in a previous review- she should not have died. She's a pivotal character, no different than having Spock, Kirk or PIcard die. I hope they bring her back. Maybe the Caelier can bring her back the same way they brought back Hernandez. It doesn't hurt to hope :)

HASH(0x97b81b70) von 5 Sternen Quality Read 1. Mai 2011
Von c77au - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Watching The Clock was one of the best Star Trek reads I've had in ages. While reasonably technical in parts, Chris does a fantastic job of discussing various time travel theories/concepts and applying them to (as near as I could tell) all instances of time travel that were encountered in the Star Trek television show and movies. Starting with the DTI agents Dulmur and Lucsly established in the DS9 episode "Trial and Tribble-ations", CLB has managed to "world-build" not only the DTI organisation, but a number of fascinatingly alien, cultures, indivduals and concepts.

Couple this with a ripping good yarn that, I think, is on par with the "The Buried Age", and I don't think readers will be disappointed!

HASH(0x97b81ab0) von 5 Sternen Complicated, Crazy, and Fun 1. Mai 2011
Von Snaploud - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It's a little disjointed at times and sometimes feels like a collection of short stories or a scientific paper on the nature of time. The book picks up mid-way, though, and you start to see how all the stories fit together into the larger whole. It's not the easiest Trek book I've ever read, but it's a satisfying science fiction story that manages to create a coherent background for time travel in the trek universe.

HASH(0x97b83d44) von 5 Sternen Not a Waste of... Well, You Know. 7. Juni 2011
Von Matthew Gardner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Most fans of DS9 are familiar with the characters of Lucsly and Dulmer (anagrams of Scully and Mulder--get it?), stalwart agents of the Department of Temporal Investigations, valiantly defending the timeline against temporal incursions and anomalies, and plaguing Starfleet captains and crews who venture recklessly through time to "fix" things. I enjoyed this ambitious attempt to coherently unify all the twisted, convoluted, often contradictory takes on time travel throughout the decades long history of Trek continuity. The author is very talented, and touches on practically every instance. But it doesn't always work, and more than once seems more like shoehorning in of time travel theories and expository dialogue about things just to explain it to a reader the characters don't know exists. But just the same, an entertaining ride (for an ubergeek like me at least) and a great job of characterization and expansion of the Trekverse. Probably have to be pretty diehard to grok all the references, but if you ever wanted to know just what was up with the "Temporal Cold War," or why the Borg only tried time traveled to Earth once, or what the heck was up with that early Next Gen epi "Time Squared" then this book is essential reading. Just make sure your original memories are phase shielded.

HASH(0x97b83a20) von 5 Sternen This is a book to make time for 1. Mai 2011
Von Toriach - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I won't lie, this book is probably not for the non Star Trek fan. It may not even be for the casual Star Trek fan. So what kind of person is this book for?

Well if you are A: A Star Trek fan... B: A fan of time travel related science fiction... C: A fan of stories that show what happened after some of the best known and best loved episodes and movies of the Star Trek franchise had ended and most importantly D: A fan of fast paced stories with deft characterization and intricate clever plots that are still easy to follow (so long as you are paying even a little bit of attention) then this book may very well be for you.

Personally I am enjoying every second it's taking me to read it, and wish there was some way I could travel back in time to read it again once I'm finished. Oh hey wait there is. It's called re-reading. ;-)
