DREADNOUGHT!

By: Diane Carey

Star Empire is the Federation's most
powerful new weapon - a dreadnought,
first in a class of super-starships -
capable of outgunning a dozen Klingon
cruisers, or subduing a galaxy.

On the eve of her maiden voyage, Star Empire
is stolen by terrorists who demand a
rendezvous with the Enterprise - and with
Lieutenant Piper, stationed aboard
Kirk's ship on her first training cruise.  Now
Piper must discover why her
friends from Starfleet are among the
terrorists . . . and why they
insist the ship was stolen not to attack
the Federation - but to save it!



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW

First of all, Star Empire sounds too much like a Romulan name
instead of a Federation name.  Second, this novel is written in
the 'first person' which means it's told from someone's point of view.

(The other novels are written in the 'third person')

It's not told from Kirk's point of view it's from Piper's so the only time
we see Kirk is when he's with Piper . . . and he's not with Piper very often.

It's an interesting story idea but that's the only thing going for it.

Don't get me wrong, the actual writing is fine, I just don't care
for the 'first person' perspective.
