Great Movie-Self-Promoting Adaptation
This was Vonda McIntyre's third and thankfully last Star Trek film novelization. It's not that she's a bad writer, (she's not) she merely forced her own religious beliefs and apochryphal Star Trek fiction on readers who were only interested in reading a novelization of what was on the screen. Through all three of her film adaptations, she continued characters from the Entropy Effect, and changed the established characters' religious beliefs to polytheistic ones. The editors at Simon and Schuster should never have permitted this. In Star Trek IV, she also added elements of Enterprise, the First Adventure. Through all three of her adaptations, the seams show, and her self-promotion breaks the flow of the books. This was not the way that such a fine original story should have been treated.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
