Next time I fall for one of these tempting offers, sit on me till the urge passes.―Han Solo, to Chewbacca

NUMBER 1.5!!! So here we have the first novel of the The Han Solo Adventures trilogy! A friend of mine let me borrow these book for the challenge and personal couldn’t wait to start reading them! I found myself really enjoying this novel and the over all story plot/idea behind the trilogy.

873195Han Solo trusts no one, and does no favors. But when the best illegal ship rebuilder in the galaxy disappears, Han and Chewbacca agree to go after him—after all, the Millennium Falcon needs some very special repairs. Their search pits them against powerful and ruthless enemies out to destroy them, and finally leads them to an airless speck of desolate asteroid—the Corporate Sector Authority|Authority prison planet known as Stars’ End.

Written by Brian Daley, it was released on April 12, 1979. A sequel, entitled Han Solo’s Revenge, was published on October 12, 1979. The whole trilogy was reprinted together on April 22, 1992. It’s mostly disconnected from the rest of the Star Wars Universe. It takes Solo and Chewbacca off to a distant place far removed from The Empire, Jabba the Hutt and more. While it does examine their pre-Luke Skywalker life, it makes no references to anything familiar other than the two characters, making it markedly different than most other Star Wars tie-ins. Still, the character do feel like those we grew to love on screen and they do have fun banter and action adventures. It’s well written and Brain Daley does a good job of telling a story. Given there really wasn’t much to go on at the time. Han’s quips and comments are true to the first movie as well as his ambitions and code of ethics. Some new characters that were added are two droids, Bullox and Blue Max. Both neat additions to the Star Wars Universe if a bit reminiscent of C3PO and R3D2. 

So far in this challenge I’ve read some short novels. Han Solo at Stars’ End (Star Wars: The Han Solo Adventures #1) is only about 187 pages long. Most of this trilogy each book is just under 200 pages, Han Solo’s Revenge is 198. Making it the bigger one in the set and that one will be coming next month :). I’m really liking where this is going and enjoying this challenge a little bit more.

Trek Book216586The Enterprise comes across a huge, antiquated vessel floating in space and carrying a colony of primitive human beings who have been lost in space. While the colonists are in perfect health, they must deal with the culture shock of learning that a world exists outside of their spaceship. Their initial reaction is fear, as they believe the crew of the Enterprise to be “demons.” And their fears are heightened with the belief that Captain Kirk and his crew are unaware of an outside force pulling them into a whirlpool of death.

The Galactic Whirlpool (Star Trek Adventures #14) by David Gerrold… It’s a Tribbles thing ;).. This is a classic Trek novel in every sense of the word, written by the man who invented Tribbles. What is a Tribble you ask? Well sit back and here is your history lesson for the day.

Tribbles:

Kirk_surrounded_by_Tribbles Are fictional alien species in the Star Trek universe who first appeared in the episode titled “The Trouble with Tribbles“. They are depicted as small, furry, soft, gentle, attractive, and slow-moving, and they usually produce a soothing purring or cooing sound when stroked, all of which are endearing traits to humans, Vulcans, and their hybrids. However, because Tribbles reproduce incredibly fast, and consume exponentially larger and larger amounts of food as they multiply and crawl stealthily from one place to another, Starfleet considers them dangerous organisms and forbids their transportation. The Klingons, in whose presence Tribbles produce a convulsive, shrieking reaction, go as far as to consider them “mortal enemies”, as stated in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine episode “Trials and Tribble-ations“.tribble-stid

Like I said before, it’s a great Trek novel and as well as a tie novel before the movies. The history, world building is a pure form of science fiction and the characters are so well done. I rather enjoyed this book and might read it again at some point. I think the only downside to it, would be the fact it’s so attention to detail. It slows the novel down a bit, much like George RR Martin style of writing. Love the stories and worlds, but damn haha. But if you find yourself with a copy of this book, read it! Another fun fact about this novel, this was the last Star Trek book released by Bantam. Pocket Books too over from there.
