Star Trek Book Challenge 35: Crossroad (Star Trek: The Original Series #71)

Star Trek Book Challenge

So today we have Crossroad (Star Trek: The Original Series #71) by Barbara Hambly. This book had a lot of promise to it and for what it was I did rather enjoy reading it. That being said, the only problem for this book is the events that take place.

217599The crew of the Nautilus, a battered Starship of mysterious origin, is beamed aboard the Starship Enterprise. The group claims they are freedom fighters from the future working to save the Federation from the Consilium, a group of corrupt power-seekers. The Nautilus crew members then seize control of the U.S.S. Enterprise, and a Starship from the future arrives to arrest the renegades. Kirk must separate his true allies from those who wish to destroy the Federation.

Kinda a bizarre little story line and the only way for any of the events in this book to work at all in the Star Trek universe is either have it be an alternate or a completely different timeline. At times it feels like she was lost in her own thought process or not to sure on what to do next haha. Almost like a fish out of water really. There are some chapters that you can skip over, because they have nothing going on or no important backstory or actions. I would say this tho, the primary characters are true to form and the secondary characters are dimensional/non-robotic. It’s a good time filler and nothing else, all tho it’s FAR better than some of the other ones I’ve read in the past.

I don’t know what it is about Trek novels..? They are so hit and miss its not even funny, or they are “pay check” books. you’d think there would have been a standard by now for what Trek should be. I know Star Wars as a timeline they need to follow for the most part.. I mean there are a few really bad novel in that field as well, but that’s another story all together.

New Suicide Squad Trailer…

Fanboys

suicide-squadThe Suicide Squad movie…. Where do I begin? It’s so back and forth, I still have a lot of mixed feelings about the whole thing. I’m sure you can remember some of my older posts bout it when the news first dropped on us:

Excited for Suicide Squad? Do you think it’s going to be SIIIICK?

Suicide Squad Comic-Con Trailer (2016)

I still think Hot Topic kinda dropped trou all over this movie.. I just not sold on the costume design for most of the characters. But having said that This last trailer that was released a few days ago made me want to see it. I’m looking forward to this movie more than Batman VS Superman I have to say. But like I said in the other two posts, once the movies come out. THEN we’ll see how things are!  Till then, it’s just rumors and opinions.
