    Too many writers for one book

    The book is great if you are a diehard fan of star trek. If not you are completly lost. I read all the Gateways books before this and still find this one hard to digest. I was hoping that this would be easier to read since I read the first six but it is not because they went back to the ending of the very first book. I totally forgot about the first book. So in other words enjoy it if you are a diehard fan of Star Trek. If not find something else.

    Ending the Gateways Series

    STAR TREK GATEWAYS What Lay Beyond AUTHORS: Diane Carey, Peter David, Keith R.A. DeCandidio, Christie Golden, Robert Greenberger, & Susan Wright PUBLISHER: Simon & Schuster REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: The Gateways provide unimaginable distance travel in only a few seconds. Yet rather than just finding a new civilization, unwanted problems occur because people have gone through them. The builders of the Gateways, The Iconians, are back but do they come in peace or do they want something more. Read Gateways ¿ What Lay Beyond to find the answer. My suggestion would be to read this ONLY after reading the previous six that sets up everything that happens in this, the seventh book. So order all of them¿ One Small Step (Star Trek: Gateways Book One) Chainmail (Star Trek Challenger: Gateways Book Two) Doors into Chaos (Star Trek: The Next Generation: Gateways Book Three) Demons of Air and Darkness (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Gateways Book Four) No Man's Land (Star Trek : Voyager : Gateways Book Five) Cold Wars (Star Trek: New Frontier--Gateways, Book Six) --and settle in for a good reading session. The reader, David Kaye, is very good. The added sound effects detract from the stories to the point that sometimes you cannot hear what David is saying for sure. Notwithstanding, this is good ending book for the whole series. The only drawback I found to the whole series is that they did not interact with the others.
