Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
This ninth volume in the Star Trek New Frontier series, and the first in the Excalibur trilogy, is an interesting character study of several of the crew members of the USS Excalibur. This tale begins just after Mackenzie Calhoun has been killed and the Excalibur has been destroyed. The old command crew, including First Officer Shelby, Security Chief Kebron, Navigator McHenry, Thallonian Ambassador Si Cwan, and Science Office Soleta, meet to toast the memory of their captain and to discuss what they will do next. For the rest of this volume we follow Soleta as she finds her Romulan father; Si Cwan, as he seeks to discover who killed his martial arts teacher; and McHenry and Kebron as they uncover one of Q's little tricks. KLIATT Codes: JSA—Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2000, Pocket Books, 267p, 18cm, $6.99. Ages 13 to adult. Reviewer: Hugh M. Flick, Jr.; Silliman College, Yale University, New Haven, CT January 2001 (Vol. 35 No. 1)

Chapter One: PREVIOUSLY IN STAR TREK: NEW FRONTIER...

The normal low-level buzz of conversation on the bridge tapered off as Captain Calhoun stepped out from the turbolift.

He had missed an entire shift, which was unprecedented for him. Everyone understood, however, and no one knew quite what to say to him when he did reappear.

He went to his command chair, took his seat, and when he looked around at the respectfully silent crew, a smile played across his lips. It was a sad smile, but a smile just the same.

"Captain," began Shelby.

"Commander...it's all right," he interrupted. "All of you...really...it's all right. The important thing...the thing I'm not going to lose sight of...is that he went out like a warrior."

There were nods from all around.

"It was very...Xenexian of him, believe it or not. The notion of dying in one's bed is anathema to my people. To die in combat, on the other hand, is very much to be desired...and to die in combat while saving others is the highest, most noble passing that anyone could wish for. I will miss him...and regret the time that we did not spend together, and the time we will not have...but the bottom line is, he died heroically. All of us...should only be so fortunate as to have that opportunity," said Mackenzie Calhoun, five minutes before the Excalibur blew up...

    Definetly the next in the serial.

    Peter David does it again, His continuation picks up right where the last one leaves off. It doesn't seem like it at first, but moving on to Book 10 will tie some things together. The new Frontier Series needs to be read in order. Each book does enough exlination that it's POSSIBLE to read them out of order, but to get the full effect of Mr. David's masterful talent...In order is the way to go. Highly recommended, as are ALL of Peter David's works.

    A New Chapter

    Where book #8 left off is not the starting point for book #9. Calhoun is dead, his ship destroyed, but it tells nothing of how that happened. It instead tells of the adventures of Soleta, McHenrey and Kebron, and Si Cwan and Kalinda. The tales are engaging and at some parts humerous, others are distinctly disquieting. Peter David,creating the twists this book takes,has done a good job relating the events in a manner that makes you want to keep reading, and when you read the 'ending' you want to run to the nearest bookstore to by the next installment, Renaissance.You will surley want to make Star Trek: New Frontier a new legend in the vast Star Trek franchise.
