Overview

Cadet Worf arrives at Starfleet AcademyTM as the first Klingon to gain entrance since the Federation-Klingon, Peace Treaty. Raised on Earth by human parents, Worf wonders whether he is still a Klingon, the proud member of an honorable warrior race, or is he more human?

Command-level classes fill his schedule, but nothing prepares him for his fellow cadets, among them his human foster brother. Intelligent, ambitious, and confident, the Academy cadets make life difficult for the young warrior. Worf must win over his classmates — including the always logical Vulcans and the fierce Brikar — even though they are still trained to think of him as the enemy.

Then a routine trip to a training satellite turns into an unexpected disaster, and Worf must unite the cadets and risk his life before a terrible accident destroys the entire mission.

A fun read meant for young teens but enjoyable at any age. In this story, a young Worf faces the challenges of being the first and only Klingon at the academy. Personally, I would look forward to seeing more of this series available as nookbooks.

I read this (and actually reread it) when I was a young adult. I was hesitant to pick it up; as far as Next Generation characters, Worf was probably the last one I'd want to read about re: academy days (wouldn't it be fun to read about Jean-Luc meeting Boothby and winning that academy marathon?). But this book proves to dispel your doubts, even if you aren't a Worf fan (I've softened to the big lug in recent years). Peter David has this weird way to make you both like and object to a character's actions, usually the same action, and you are left feeling the feelings that other characters no doubt feel. Worth the read, especially if someone saw the new "Star Trek" movie and kind of liked it. I would recommend it for kids 10 and up.
