GATEWAYS - CHALLENGER
CHAINMAIL

By: Diane Carey

Book #2 of 7

Dangerous remnants of an extinct interstellar civilization, the
Gateways connect the Alpha Quadrant with the farthest reaches of the
galaxy.  Hidden away in various corners of the universe, the ancient
portals could be the future of space travel, but they may also provide an
open doorway for an invasion from beyond!

Twenty years ago, in the space near Belle Terre, a caravan of alien
vessels disappeared into a gigantic Gateway.  Now the descendants of
those aliens have returned, armed with incredible new weapons and
abilities.  Commander Nick Keller of the U.S.S. Challenger, already
struggling to maintain peace in the troubled sector, must now cope
with a fleet of hostile aliens driven by their own fanatical agenda!



TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


There are 7 novels in this series, each with a semi-unique story.
They all involve the Gateway but each deals
with different characters in the Star Trek universe.
Since only books 1,2 and 7 deal with original series characters,
these are the only books reviewed here.


This story actually doesn't involve any of the classic Trek characters,
but it DOES involve some characters from the
New Earth series of novels (89 - 94)
so that's why I'm reviewing it here.

I was very tired of reading about Belle Terre in that series of books,
but I thought I'd at least give this book a try.  I'm glad I did too.

It doesn't involve Belle Terre or any of the colonist at all,
which I was glad about; it only involves the
characters from the Federation ship
that came to take over for the USS Enterprise.

An interesting story that kept my attention most of the way through.
This one, like the last one, has a "cliffhanger" ending.
