Overview

The year is 2250, and it has been six months since James Kirk joined Starfleet Academy. A rebellious young man, Kirk is used to doing things his way--and whenever he feels like it. However, the Academy is changing him little by little, showing him how to transform his headstrong attitude and ambition into qualities that make him a leader. Kirk's behavior often brings him to clash with another Starfleet Academy member, a half-Vulcan, half-human named Spock. This book series will delve into the lives and relationships of Kirk and the other recruits at the Academy, their training, their missions, and their romances.

In The Delta Anomaly, a shocking San Francisco crime shakes up Starfleet Academy, entangling Kirk, McCoy, Uhura, and Spock…. and turns out to have chilling intergalactic implications.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
The Star Trek characters don't change very much. Jim (soon to be Captain) Kirk has been chasing girls since he was in high school and obviously doesn't see any reason to stop. Dr. McCoy generally doesn't participate in Jim's adventures, but he "covers Jim's back" as a good friend is expected to. We are finally told Uhura's first name—Nyota—and are given a look at her amazing talents and abilities. She can speak several Romulan dialects and is developing a relationship with the computer, introducing it to irony and sarcasm, which it is beginning to understand, and even praising it when it does something right, which it will never understand. Spock, of course, has always been the same logical half-Vulcan; Uhura has a crush on him, but he's her instructor, and she'll never give herself away. In the TV shows, there is usually one minor character that will die or be badly injured; in this book there are several, and of course Jim has fallen for one of them. The book reads like a TV show; in fact, the reader can almost picture the fadeouts and the jumps between rooms and characters. The plot is fairly typical (alien nanotechnology combined with a serial killer), and the characters still use some of the tools that we consider cutting edge (certainly after 200 years you would think there must be something new) but it doesn't interfere with our enjoyment of the book. It's a good read anyway. Reviewer: Judy Silverman
