| As man expands beyond explored space,
the need to find a way to make inhospitable planets hospitable grows greater.
One young biologist, Carol Marcus, has a project that she is convinced can
reshape planets. She puts together a team of young, committed scientists
who dare to dream as she does: of a Federation remade so hunger is eradicated,
where every world can be reshaped into a paradise. The belief that
all things are possible, that man can strive to conquer space not with force
but with science, is shared by James Kirk, a young Starfleet officer and
Leila Kalomi, a renowned botanist, is looking for a new direction.
After hearing about Marcus's project, she applies for a position. She
finds Carol's passion contagious, and a chance encounter with the Enterprise's
science officer, Spock, convinces her to join Project: Inception.
Four people just trying to find the balance between their careers and their
personal lives, trying to make the right choice not just for themselves but
for the betterment of all mankind. The choices they make will rewrite
the history of the Federation and change forever how man explores space.
Carol Marcus AND Leila Kalomi!
I've wanted someone to write the story of how Spock and Leila
met for years and someone finally did.
The authors did a good job getting the characters right
and I enjoyed learning about young Kirk and Carol, and
young Spock and Leila.
If you like back-stories, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one!
