Good book -- TERRIBLE Kindle Transfer
on August 15, 2012
I am still enjoying reading about Picard's first command. However, I must point out up front that unlike book one's transfer to Kindle problems, book two's problems are MUCH more pronounced. So much so, that it actually does make it hard to read the book. I don't know what their transfer process was to get the book into Kindle format, but I am thinking a single-pass OCR import without any review of any kind. That is just sloppy at best. However, while someone should hang their head in shame for that, the STORY itself of the book is very good, and that is what I am rating.
I am still finding I am enjoying the various supporting cast members added to the Stargazer's crew, to flesh out the story. Second Commander Elizabeth Wu shined a bit more in this book, I liked her in the end. The sub-story concerning Communications Officer Ulelo being "not quite right" was interesting, although it smacked of DS9-type stories. chief engineer Phigus Simenon's personal problems were VERY Vulcan-like, but still interesting. Ensign Jiterica is still fascinating as a non-humanoid lifeform, and the two replacements for the departing crewmembers are semi-interesting.
I liked the story in book two a little bit better than book one's story, however it is still a day-in-the-life-of Star Trek type of story. The crew's character growth and increasing depth save the story, though.
If you can get past the TERRIBLE formatting, it is a good book.
