EX MACHINA

By: Christopher L. Bennett

In the aftermath of the astonishing events of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the captain and officers of the USS Enterprise remain haunted by their encounter with the vast artificial intelligence of V'Ger . . . and by the sacrifice and ascension of their friend and shipmate, Willard Decker.

As James T. Kirk, Spock and Leonard McCoy attempt to cope with the personal fallout of that ordeal, a chapter from their mutual past is reopened, raising troubling new questions about the relationship among God, Man and AI.  On the recently settled world of Daran IV, the former refugees of the Fabrini worldship Yonada are being divided by conflicting ideologies, as those clinging to their theocratic past vie with visionaries of a future governed by reason alone.

Now, echoes of the V'Ger encounter reverberate among the Enterprise officers who years ago overthrew the Oracle, the machine-god that controlled Yonada.  Confronting the consequences of those actions, Kirk, Spock and McCoy also face choices that will decide the fate of a civilization, and which may change them forever.


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


It took me quite a while to finish this novel, not because
it was long, but because I lost interest.

While it was interesting to visit the new home world
of the people of Yonada and to 'see' Natira again, the story gets
bogged down with descriptions of the political in-fighting of these people
and I would put the book down for several days at a time.

I found it a frustrating book to read.
