Of course, this being a series of novellas tied into a linking theme (in this case, a planet ravaged by an environmental disaster), there are going to be some stories that work better than others. The strongest offering comes from Christopher L. Bennett, which shouldn't come as a surprise. Set in the era between the first and second classic "Trek" films, Bennett has shown before how good stories can be told in this time frame and his entry is no exception. The weakest is the second installment, a story set during the original five year mission and one that comes off as feeling like little more than an homage of all the elements that make up a stereotypical classic "Trek" episode. It's not bad, but it just doesn't feel like it's doing anything new or different.
