Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This first volume of the Mission Gamma series follows two different story lines. The first plot concerns the events on Deep Space Nine as the Bajoran application for membership in the Federation of Planets is accepted. The second one follows the exploits of the USS Defiant under Commander Elias Vaughn as it sets out from the space station through the wormhole on an extended voyage of exploration in the Gamma Quadrant. The second story line is much more interesting since the Defiant is boldly going where no man has gone before. The voyagers discover a strange pulse of energy from another dimension that is wreaking havoc on nearby inhabited planets. During a harrowing mission, Vaughn finally discovers that the energy is being released when an alien from the other dimension tries to break through. (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: Mission Gamma, book one of four). KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2002, Pocket Books, 504p.,

Meet the Author


DAVID R. GEORGE III wrote the Crucible trilogy for Star Trek's 40th anniversary as well as Olympus Descending for Worlds of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Volume Three. He previously visited DS9 in the novels The 34th Rule, set during the timeframe of the series, and in Twilight, set after the finale. His other Star Trek contributions include a first season Voyager episode, "Prime Factors," and one of the Lost Era books, Serpents Among the Ruins, which hit the New York Times bestseller list in Fall, 2003. Currently he is writing a novella for Star Trek: Myriad Universes: Shattered Light, coming in December, 2010, from Gallery Books.

In his almost nonexistent spare time, David enjoys trying his hand at new experiences, from skydiving to auditioning--with his lovely wife, Karen--for "The New Newlywed Game", from hiking a glacier in Alaska to belly dancing in Tunisia, from ocean kayaking in Mexico to having dinner at an actual captain's table somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Recently, he performed his first wedding ceremony--which he and Karen also wrote--marrying their friends Jen and Ryan Van Riper. David believes that the world is a wide, wondrous place, with exciting adventures waiting around just about every corner.

He remains free on his own recognizance.

This is a good story that incorporates many of episodes of Startrek that featured Dr. McCoy. It centers around the episode City on the Edge of Forever, creating two timelines for McCoy's life. I found the story very entertaining, sparking memories of episodes from the original series.

Always having considered "City on The Edge of Forever" one of the great episodes of the Original Series, the concept of this book - and the other two in the trilogy - sounded intriguing. If you have looked at the description of the storyline and feel the same way. Let me assure you, the author does not dissappoint the reader. The level of character development weaved into two alternate timelines and presented from the perspective of our beloved Doctor (as well as shipmates both familiar and some that might take a moment to remember) is crafted by the author with such care that you will come away feeling you know these characters, especially Leonard McCoy, even more. This one is a winner, in any timeline!

This book connects seamlessly with multiple dangling plotlines from previous novels and tells a gripping, three-dimensional tale.
