ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

By: Pamela Sargent & George Zebrowski

The Hawking left Earth during the 21st century on a
one-way mission to colonize a distant world.  Due to the
relativistic effects of pre-warp travel, its crew has aged
only thirty years while two centuries passed outside the
ship.  When the Starship Enterprise comes to the rescue of
the malfunctioning Hawking, the colonists find themselves
thrust into a universe and an era that has left them behind.

Captain Kirk intends to help the colonists adjust as best
he can, but the task is not a simple one.  The newcomers are
survivors of a more violent, more paranoid time - and
they have brought old suspicions, and an ancient weapon of
mass destruction, into a world of unexpected challenges
and dangers.



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This story borrows a bit from the episode "Space Seed."
This time, instead of being bad, the people from the Hawking
are basically friendly, but they do have a few secrets.

It sounds like an intriguing story, but it falls short.
Endless, boring conversations slow the story to a crawl.
I was halfway through the book and was still waiting
for the story to become interesting.

Unless you're a die-hard fan and must read all of them (like me!)
feel free to skip this novel.
