Star Trek: First Frontier
While testing a new shielding device, the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM is caught in the middle of a Klingon/Romulan battle. The Enterprise crew rescues a lifepod, and they are confronted by a Klingon who claims to know nothing of human existence. Convinced the Klingon is telling the truth, Captain Kirk hurries to Starfleet Headquarters in search of answers. But upon arriving on Earth, the Starship Enterprise crew finds that Earth is a vast jungle-like paradise where large, reptillian animals rule, with no signs of human life anywhere. Kirk must travel to the past in search of the key to the mystery, or face the destruction of the human race.
This book has a really nice blend of Star Trek lore and usage of dinosaurs. Any Star Trek or dinosaur fan should enjoy it, especially with James Kirkland, paleontologist and Star Trek fan, as the writer.
I love Star Trek but,
This was a great story that was made boring by all the scientific theory of what happened millions of years ago. I literally hated all the scientific detail attached to this tale. The book was about 1,000 pages too long! If I want to read about the past, I won't buy a Star Trek book, Duh! Perhaps if you guys read my review and if enough of us don't buy this trash (like I did) perhaps they won't write a story like this again. Bad idea.
