THE RINGS OF TIME

By:  Greg Cox

2020 The 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 . . .

Stardate 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 . . .


TREKKIEGUY'S REVIEW


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 disappoint.

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!
