Overview

Star Trek: Myriad Universes: Infinity's Prism by Christopher L. Bennett, William Leisner, James Swallow

It's been said that for any event, there are an infinite number of possible outcomes. Our choices determine which outcome will follow, and therefore all possibilities that could happen do happen across countless alternate realities. In these divergent realms, known history is bent, like white light through a prism -- broken into a boundless spectrum of what-might-have-beens. But in those myriad universes, what might have been...is what actually happened.

A Less Perfect Union: More than a hundred years after the Terra Prime movement achieved its dream of an isolationist Earth, humanity is once again at a fork in the river of history...and the path it follows may ultimately be determined by the voice of a single individual: the sole surviving crewmember of the first Starship Enterprise.™

Places of Exile: Midway through Voyager's journey across the galaxy, Captain Kathryn Janeway and Commander Chakotay must choose whether to brave a deadly war zone or abandon their quest for home. But an attack by Species 8472 cripples the ship, and the stranded crew must make new choices that will reshape their destinies...and that of the Delta Quadrant itself.

Seeds of Dissent: Khan victorious! Almost four centuries after conquering their world, genetically enhanced humans dominate a ruthless interstellar empire. But the warship Defiance, under its augmented commander, Princeps Julian Bashir, makes a discovery that could shake the pillars of his proud civilization: an ancient sleeper ship from Earth named the Botany Bay.

I should preface this by saying that I really enjoyed the other two Myriad Universes books. I like the alternate takes on established characters and lore. With that said, this was easily the most expensive, and most disappointing of the entries in this series. None of these stories actually felt like it was worthwhile or complete. That this was double the amount of the other entries in the series, I presumed it was longer or better. It is neither. In fact, I can't recommend this. Save your money, get a different Trek book.

The first story in this trio features characters from the Original Series as well as T'Pol from the Enterprise Series. The second novella stars much of the cast of Voyager. The third relates to an episode from the Original Series, but is about characters from Deep Space Nine. These stories are all well done, but I especially enjoyed the second and third. I think most fans of the shows really like these alternate universe and alternate timeline stories. Michael Travis Jasper, Author of the Novel "To Be Chosen"
