Good, Hard SF,
This review is from: The Voyage of the Star Wolf (Paperback)
This is the way Star Trek the Next Generation should have been written. David Gerrold cuts thru the New Age, wimpy crap that plagues the modern TV series and delivers a book that gives the hard edge a star ship needs on the frontier where the bad guys would rather eat you than talk.
The book opens with the LS-1187 joining a convoy on the Silk Road. Only as soon as they join the ships, the Morthan Solidarity attacks and rips the heart out of the fleet. Commander Korie has mortally wounded captain, an untested crew and a severely damaged ship. On top of that he has the biggest warship in a 100 parsecs stalking him - the Dragon Lord. He performs the near impossible and brings his ship home, only to be sent out again (this time under Captain Hardesty) on a suicide mission.
A great story and fast read.
