His two science fiction novels, Wolf Hunters and To Ride the Chimera were published by Roc. When not writing Kevin has been an exceptional children's teacher, drill rig operator, high-risk intervention counselor, warehouse grunt, ESL teacher, photographer, mental health case manager, college instructor, and paperboy.

PHAEDRA M. WELDON has loved Star Trek since watching The Original Series reruns with her dad, and regrets he didn't live long enough to see the new Star Trek movie. The thrill of writing in the Star Trek Universe was a life long dream, realized when she met Dean Wesley Smith in 1997 and learned of the Star Trek Strange New Worlds Anthology. Since then, she has published two Starfleet Corps of Engineers ebooks, as well as book II, The Oppreessor's Wrong, in The Next Generation series, Sings and Arrows. She has had numerous short stories published with Daw Anthologies, and writes regularly for Catalyst Game Labs in their BattleTech and Shadowrun universes. Currently she is writing for Berkley in her Urban Fantasy original series, The Zoë Martinique Investigations. She was recently tapped to write a novel for the show Eureka! and is working on several other original projects. Presently she lives in Atlanta, Georgia, but will be moving to Maryland to be with her geneticist husband and precocious daughter. She can be found online most mornings at 7 a.m., writing her daily pages in original work, and at night pounding the keyboards for original universes. If there is one thing she's learned , it's that there are three constants in the universe: Death, Taxes, and Star Trek.

For example, almost an entire story is about how Bart can't commit to his boyfriend who has proposed marriage, and coincidentally, the mission just so happens to involve a species where women turn to men and vica versa, so an alien guy falls for him.
There were two good points.
1. The cover was attractive.
2. The societies of the alien species were interesting.
Besides that, there wasn't much in it. I skimmed through it quite quickly and was looking forward to reading another book. This SCE one didn't do it for me at all.
If you're a diehard Star Trek fan, go ahead and read this. It's inoffensive and true to the ST ethos.
But if you aren't give it a miss. There are better ST novels out there.
While this is not the strongest collection of SCE stories, it is worth reading if you enjoy the characters and like the extra depth it gives them.
