This book follows a reunited Enterprise crew to save Spock’s son from the past. The crew’s mission to the Gateway to bring back Zar out of the past and also contact the “Guardian of Forever” to civilization.
Now this is a sequel to Yesterday’s Son. So if you haven’t read that, you should read that first and sstop reading this post do to SPOILERS! The story line and the interactions between Spock, Kirk and McCoy are classes and heart warming. This book really felt like seeing an old family come back together one last time. There are some weak points, especially concerning the structure of the plot. Events seem somewhat erratic at times and the novel goes through multiple disorienting shifts in direction. I would go out read this book if you get the chance. Well read the first one and then read this one haha.
Time in the galaxy has stopped running in its normal course. That can mean only one thing — the Guardian of Forever is malfunctioning. To save the universe, Starfleet Command reunites three of its most legendary figures — Admiral James T. Kirk, Spock of Vulcan, and Dr. Leonard McCoy — and sends them on a desperate mission to contact the Guardian, a journey that ultimately takes them 5,000 years into the past. They must find Spock’s son Zar once again, and bring him back to their time to telepathically communicate with the Guardian.
But Zar is enmeshed in troubles of his own, and soon Kirk, Spock, and McCoy find themselves in a desperate struggle to save both his and their world. –This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
