Two stars because all the characters are true to canon and the story is not painful. It's just instantly forgettable.
I saw this with some eagerness, listed both on Brin's website and then subsequently on Amazon.com. I preordered it some time ago and just got it over the weekend. I socked it away in less than an hour.
Not a bad story. There were similarities I think with ST:First Contact in the angle of inventor/developer of commonplace future technologies. The characters were well used and as an ensemble piece (which Star Trek usually is) its pretty good.
If I had a complaint, which I don't really, it only that Mr. Brin seems somewhat hemmed in when building stories in someone else's universe. I've come to expect him to push the envelope, to develop characters that I really like (Mr. Brin, I'd very much like the phone number of Athaclena...I would not have hesitated, Tymbrini or not...<sm>).
Its all there for the average author but I was a little let down.
A suggestion if I may...Mr. Brin, now that you've ventured into the world of graphic media, please adapt your other works, the ones that you've done such a wonderful job building and populating. I would love to see Heart or any/all of the Uplift series adapted as graphic novels.
