THE LAST ROUNDUP

By:  Christie Golden

Having saved the Federation one more time in Star Trek: The Undiscovered Country, Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise have finally gone their separate ways. Spock, McCoy, Sulu and the others are spread across the galaxy, pursuing their own individual destinies - until an interstellar crisis touches all their lives.

Bored with retirement, and ill-suited to teaching at Starfleet Academy, Kirk jumps at the chance to help his young nephews colonize an uninhabited planet in a distant corner of the Alpha Quadrant.  He even manages to persuade Scotty and Chekov to come along for the ride.

But Kirk soon discovers that the hardy human colonists are not alone on the planet they call Sanctuary.  An alien race, of whom little is known, has also established an outpost on Sanctuary - for its own mysterious reasons.  Suspicious, Kirk investigates, only to discover a terrifying threat that strikes at the security of the entire Federation.

Bridging the gap between two generations of Star Trek motion pictures, The Last Roundup fills in a missing chapter in Star Trek history - and provides science fiction's greatest heroes with an unforgettable final hurrah.


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


Unforgettable final hurrah?  Definitely not . . . but it is a
good story.  I was a bit concerned when I saw that this
story involved colonists (flashback to the New Earth novels)
but no worries: the actual trip to colonize the new planet
takes as few pages as possible and doesn't slow the story at all.

Anyway, the story moves around enough to keep things
interesting, with very believable characters.  Also, the aliens
seemed really alien to me, which was good.
They weren't just "humans with bumps on their noses."

I don't think the tag line, "unforgettable final hurrah" is justified,
but I did enjoyed reading it very much.
