Book #2 of 3
Capt. James T. Kirk's historic voyages have seldom been recorded from
the vantage point of those who served "below deck" on the Starship
Enterprise NCC-1701. This new trilogy reveals the courage and dedication
of the men and women who constitute Kirk's crew, as well as the unearthly
dangers faced by any who dare to explore the final frontier!
On a desperate rescue mission to recover their missing captain, the shuttle
Copernicus and its crew have become lost in time and space, transported by
a powerful subspace vortex to a hellish future time line where the brutal
Gorn Hegemony has all but conquered the United Federation of Planets.
Stranded on a transformed Federation colony, now a Gorn mining world
worked by oppressed human slaves, Helmsman Hikaru Sulu meets an older
version of a man he barely knows, Pavel Chekov, who now leads a ragtag
band of freedom fighters against the Gorn.
Teamed together for the first time, Sulu and Chekov must struggle to
survive in a future that should never have happened!
The first novel is good but this one is better.
Also, the teaser on the back of the book is basically accurate.
This one has much more action and it's interesting
to see a future where the Gorn rule.
