An original novel based on the explosive TV series Star Trek: Discovery!
Despite being an inexperienced Starfleet cadet, Sylvia Tilly became essential to the USS Discovery finding its way back home from the Mirror Universe. But how did she find that courage? From where did she get that steel? Who nurtured that spark of brilliance? The Way to the Stars recounts for fans everywhere the untold story of Tilly’s past.
It’s not easy being sixteen, especially when everyone expects great things from Tilly. It’s even harder when her mother and father are Federation luminaries, not to mention pressing her to attend one of the best schools that the Federation has to offer. Tilly wants to achieve great things—even though she hasn’t quite worked out how to do that or what it is she wants to do. But this year, everything will change for Tilly, as she about to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime—an adventure that will take her ever closer to the stars…
Very solid authorized fanfic (praise)
(I like fanfic greatly. I especially like well-edited fanfic. I group ALL the Trek novels into the group of authorized fanfic.)
It's mostly slice of life and events, fits in well with the canon of the series, adds some useful worldbuilding, is better/different than the summary blurb makes it out to be.
Not quite five stars because there's something that it's just not quite evoking in me. *Solid*, not superlative. And since I got it on a 99-cent sale, "solid" is pretty satisfying. Definitely pick it up if you like Trek & it's on sale again.
