NEW EARTH
BELLE TERRE

By: Dean Wesley Smith with Diane Carey


Book #2 of 6


The starship Enterprise has embarked on its most ambitious assignment
yet: to lead a courageous band of settlers to a far off planet, to defend
the fragile colony from alien threats, and to unravel the enigmatic riddles
of a brand new Earth!

A six month distance from the Federation, the planet Belle Terre offers a
new life to more than 60,000 families, pioneers, scientists, expatriates,
go-getters, loners, and entrepreneurs, all under the watchful eye of
Captain Kirk and his crew.  But the would-be colonists have barely settled
in the untamed wilderness of their new home when Spock makes a
startling discovery: not only does one of the planet's moons contain a
rare ore of almost inestimable value, that same moon is also violently
unstable.  Within months, it will inevitably explode - destroying all life on
Belle Terre!


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


This novel begins quite a while (story time) after the last one ended,
so it took me a bit of time to get into the story again.

Seems strange that the 2 alien races that were in the first
novel are nowhere to be seen in this story.  They made
such a big deal out of these aliens wanting to stop the
humans from colonizing Belle Terre and now that
the colony is set up, the aliens are nowhere to be seen.

Oh well, I'm sure they'll show up again in one of the next books.

Not as good as book one, but still pretty good.
