Never particularly comfortable expressing her emotions, Abramowitz must confront her own personal difficulties, and also confront Mansur, even as Tirza Sirajaldin saboteurs threaten the project's very existence....

I suppose it was bound to happen eventually. After twenty-five excellent titles so far in the innovative Starfleet Corps of Engineers series, regrettably the latest offering, #26 Age of Unreason by Scott Ciencin fails to entirely satisfy. Carol Abramowitz, the USS da Vinci¿s cultural specialist, is on her way to conference on Caliph IX when her leave is cut short by a call from S.C.E.¿s Starfleet liaison, Captain Montgomery Scott. Her services are needed on the planet Vrinda where a potentially devastating new technology is in the hands of rival factions. Can a peaceful resolution be found? There is plenty of potential in this story and many appealing ideas. Unfortunately, the author fails to elaborate any of the interesting bits. The alien species, the Varden are intriguing but undeveloped and the character¿s motivations are left unaddressed for the most part, so it is difficult to care what happens to them. Don't bother with this one.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
