Overview

An original e-novel from the Original Series universe!

The Enterprise-E arrives in unclaimed space for a rendezvous with the Starfleet science vessel Newton. Jean-Luc Picard and his crew have been ordered to assist the Newton with the final phase of its current mission—a mission that brings Picard face to face with something he never thought he would see again: the phenomenon known as the Nexus. Less than twelve years after it left the Alpha Quadrant, the Nexus ribbon has now returned. Tasked to track and study the phenomenon as it re-entered the galaxy, the specialist science team on the Newton discovered that the orbital path of the Nexus has been radically altered by the actions of the rogue El-Aurian Tolian Soren—taking it deep into the territory of The Holy Order of the Kinshaya, one of the key members of the Typhon Pact. Starfleet Command is unwilling to allow the Kinshaya—and by extension, the Typhon Pact—free access to what is essentially a gateway to anywhere and anywhen, as a single operative could use the Nexus to change the course of galactic history….

"Cast no Shadows" is 300 plus pages book from 2011 dealing with post Undiscovered County plot lines; "Stuff of Dreams" is a stand alone post-Nemesis Picard tale told in fewer than 100 pages. Both have the same Review page. I imagine it is a B&N screw up. Just saying as a heads up to readers. Neither will expand your vocabulary; both will entertain you.

What drove Spock's protege Valeris to be part of the conspiracy to assassinate the Klingon Chancellor in Star Trek IV The Undiscovered Country and what happened after Kirk and crew once again saved the day ? Despite getting off to a somewhat slow start, this book did a great job of bringing things together in a story that mostly takes place a few years after the Khitomer accords, but with flashbacks to show what shaped the conspiracy and what events led to Valeris believing that was the proper (and logical?) course of action. As many Trek books do it also brought in other aspects of other characters you know from either later series or the books related to those series, but giving you some insights into the earlier experience of those characters too. If you are a die hard trek fan, especially TOS you'll like this book

I have read many Star Trek novels and I must say this was one of the best. I tied up loose ends from the movie, "The Undiscovered Country". I especially liked the depth of thought and logic that was a part of Valeris' reasons for her betrayal.

Excellent timeing, coming out just befre 9/11 anniversary. Great plot, excellent characters, but needs much editing. Probably about 100 pages too long, with too mucvh detail about the terrorists' plots. Also, chapter of Kirk giving speech could have been told in about 3 sentences. Was this guy paid by the word? I was able to skim A LOT of it and still enjoy. ONly LOTR and Harry Potter books should be this long. Most Star Trek stories can be told in 200- 230 pages.

Very poor book and the plot goes no where. Who cares about this story, I thought this story was resolved or told in the Vulcan series a ways back. Don't bother paying for this book.
