    1. One of the aggrivating books in the Gateways series, this book takes place immediately following the Star Trek TOS episode That Which Survives To summarize the episode, the Enterprise discovers a planet that is the same size as Earth s moon and looks habitable, but is very young, its age is only a few thousand years old It turns out that the planet is an outpost of a dying civilization called the Kalandans A young woman, Losira, appears and tries to kill the various Enterprise crew memebers, ev [...]

    2. A pretty disappointing beginning to the Gateways series A sparse plot, poor characterizations, and plotlines that go nowhere really turned me off I really hope the rest of the series is a huge improvement As far as the series as a whole goes, the separate publication of the ends of each of the stories is a little annoying, and strikes me as a ploy to get money out of me I can only hope the stories are worth it, but that really doesn t seem to be the case with One Small Step.Full review treklit [...]

    3. The Ultimate A fool and his money are soon parted cashgrab from the Pocket Books Star Trek line a line of poorly connected novels, each one without a last chapter that is to be collected in a later book I m just as culpable having bought two of the damn things.

    4. So, I mean, there s nothing WRONG with this book, but it just it felt like a sequel to an episode of TOS that I don t remember which it for certain is than an opening to a massive crossover Were the Iconian gateways even in here Not sure, since I stopped reading about a third of the way in It s not that it s dull, it s just OK, yeah, it s pretty dull I just kept asking myself, do I care what comes next Not really.The writing is fine, but the plot itself just held zero interest for me.

    5. An interesting enough beginning to this mini series of books, though I wish there weren t so many pages of tedious technobabble why bother with plot or characterisation when you can fill endless paragraphs with made up bits of computer guts On the bright side, Wright s alien threat, the Petraw, are really fun To be honest, I enjoyed them than the Enterprise crew There s so much conflict and back biting and scheming going on within the Petraw ship that it livens up the story no end.

    6. I want to start this review off by saying that I love the concept of the Gateways series I think that the idea and the story about the gateways is amazing, and when I heard about it I felt that it was right up my alley Because of that it didn t take me all that long to decide that I would read all of the Gateways books and not just the Voyager book.So as some of you might have guessed this is the first book I ve read about the crew from the original Star Trek series I ve recently seen it for the [...]

    7. I started this as a way to get back into my New Frontier reading groove as that series crosses into the Gateways storyline , but this may have been a mistake I m beginning to have the sneaking suspicion that each story in Gateways will ultimately have little to do with each other As for this book, it was a little on the weak side and hard to follow in parts I m also not happy about the way the concluding portion of the book is contained in book 7 of the series Not happy at all with this marketin [...]

    8. This is the kickoff of another series that goes through all the various Star Trek novel series Fittingly, it starts with Kirk and the original Enterprise, following up on the classic City on the Edge of Forever episode, and offering an explanation of what the Guardian actually is.It s a good story, drawing on some original series lore but telling its own tale Wright has a good feel for the characters, and has their voices down well The action is good and enjoyable, and well plotted.It s a good f [...]

    9. I hope this is not a sign of the rest of the Gateway series The plot was rather thin Given the amount of technical analysis it could have been half as long.It seems to me rather stupid of Kirk to open a gateway to Earth when the technology was unknown Also, since he did that, it rather begs the question of why Picard knew nothing of this event in the TNG episode Contagion.So an average beginning Maybe the next will be better.

    10. I have to admit I am only reading the series, because New Frontier is part of it Also, I like series, so I decided to read it all.It seems the endings of all books are not coming until book 7 I don t really like that.This book was boring most of the time Many times I read things that aren t important or even necessary for the story I don t really understand why the Klingons were there They deserve better that what they got there.

    11. How do I rate a book like this It read like a TV episode, even the characters felt compatible with their TV counterparts It was a quick, easy read but there was nothing literarily excellent about the read It was formulaic but exciting I enjoyed it, it gave me exactly what I wanted but didn t engage me at all So it ends up at a three but maybe deserves a four if enjoyment is the only criteria.

    12. This takes place immediately after an episode of the classic series Kirk, McCoy and Sulu are stuck in an underground science station of alien orgin, because of a virus They are also keen to find what technology is held there This is a fun enough adventure, could have been a tv show, but it does end on a cliffhanger I liked the alien species who were con artist, they were well done A good read.

    13. I read this back in the days when I was reading EVERYTHING Star Trek I remember this one being ok It wasn t bad, but it obviously didn t leave much of an impression either As far as the gateways series go it s pretty good, but not my favorite.
