GATEWAYS
WHAT LAY BEYOND

By: Various Authors
Book 7 of 7

Created by the ancient Iconians, the Gateways offer instantaneous
transport across unimaginable distances.  Throughout the known galaxy,
the sudden reactivation of the Gateways has destabilized interstellar
relations - and forced several of Starfleet's finest commanders
to leap through separate Gateways into the unknown.

Captain James T. Kirk of Star Trek, The Original Series.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Colonel Kira Nerys of Deep Space Nine.
Captain Kathryn Janeway of Star Trek: Voyager.
Captains Calhoun and Shelby of Star Trek: New Frontier.
Captain Nick Keller of Star Trek: New Earth.

All of these heroes have taken the ultimate gamble: hurling themselves
through a Gateway without any forewarning of what lay beyond.
Now each must face his or her own unique challenge, while struggling
to find a way back to the ships and homes left behind . . .



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.

Finally, book 7 gets released in paperback.
I refused to buy it when it was first published because
it was published in hardcover.  Just my way of protesting.

Anyway, I was anxious to find out what happened
to Jim Kirk after he went through the Gateway but I was
very disappointed in the conclusion to this story.
The writing seemed poorer somehow, less polished, and
most of the story involved Kirk and Luz as they
hide from other Petraw by endlessly crawling through
a maze of tunnels and then without much fanfare,
the story is over and Kirk is back home!

Very anticlimactic.
Maybe it was just too long since I'd read the first novel.
