U.S.S. Lewis & Clark, under the command of Colonel Shaun
Christopher, sets off on humanity's first manned mission to
Saturn. But the unexpected presence of a stowaway complicates the
mission - as does a startling encounter with an alien probe. But
when Colonel Christopher attempts to capture the probe, he suddenly
finds himself transported across time and space to a future era of
space exploration . . .
7103.4 The U.S.S. Enterprise responds to an urgent distress call
from a mining colony orbiting Klondike VI, a ringed gas giant not
unlike Saturn. For unknown reasons, the planet's rings are coming
apart, threatening the safety of the colony and its inhabitants.
Searching for a way to avert the disaster, Captain James T. Kirk and
his crew investigate a mysterious alien probe that has just entered the
system. But when the probe is beamed aboard, Kirk abruptly find
himeself floating in space above Saturn, wearing an old-fashioned NASA
spacesuit, with the Enterprise nowhere in sight . . .
Two missions. Two crews. And a time-twisting crisis that
spans the centuries . . .
What a fantastic idea for a story! Of course, if you've read most
of these reviews
you'll know I enjoy time travel stories a lot and this one doesn't
This story involves a character that was mentioned (but never shown)
in the classic Trek episode, "Tomorrow is Yesterday."
I really enjoyed this novel! Greg Cox knows how to write Star Trek
and combining the two eras in the way that he does is genius!
This is one of the best Trek novels to come out recently!
