The author forces his characters and their technology to behave the way he wants them to, regardless of whether or not this is realistic. So people equipped with tricorders do not scan for local inhabitants and are surprised and captured by them, even when they know that local inhabitants exist. It seems as if "do a scan with your tricorder before getting out of the shuttle" would be a Week 1 lesson at Starfleet Academy, but it's evidently beyond a woman that we're told is gosh, oh, so wonderfully competent. Oh, and it's possible to put multiple bugs -- both cameras and sound -- in the captain's quarters without anyone detecting them, even though a highly important object was stolen from those same quarters earlier in the book, so one would think Kirk or Spock or Scotty -- probably all three -- would be on their guard.
When Kirk and Spock do put in their rare appearances, they aren't always in character. For example, when Kirk tells Spock that his piloting stinks, Spock replies, "If I had feelings, they would be hurt." SPOCK said that? No way! Totally out of character.
The story is not uninteresting, and the tie-in to the technology in "Mirror, Mirror" was intriguing, but if I'm reading a Star Trek novel, I want the characters to be IN character, I want them NOT to behave in weirdly stupid ways, and I want the book to be mostly about Kirk and Spock, not mostly about a minor character from the first pilot.
I've read FAN fiction better than this book. Is it too much to ask that the book be mostly about Kirk and Spock and that they be in character?
The careless of all the characters is overwhelming. No one has a clue? Security is so bad that the Captain's quarters are not only bugged but have cameras?
I'm not reading the rest of the books in this series.
All in all, this is a very entertaining, easily-read novel which fits well within the Star Trek universe. It is well worth the effort and will make you look forward to the next novel.....I am looking forward to it myself!
Other than that a enjoyable novel.

Legacies: Book 1: Captain to Captain is the first part of a trilogy of novels each written by a different author, in this novel Greg lays the groundwork and background to the events that helped to shape Una into the character of Number One we saw on the original tv pilot. The character has been used in other novels but this trilogy could become the baseline for judging this character who we never really got to know. Greg also make full use of work by Diane Carey who described April's Enterprise in some detail, it was most satisfying to recognise many names amongst this crew. The elements of the story that centered on a much older Captain Una (commander of Yorktown) also paid off handsomely as her interaction with Spock and the mystery of her visit to Kirk's Enterprise has you on the edge, you know something is going on but at the point you are not sure what. In many ways you get lost in the events on Usilde such is the wonderful descriptive world and people Greg presents but switching back to Kirk and company makes you realise the two main aspects of the novel are feeding off each other and offering up an excellent opening to this trilogy.
