This was one of the first Star Trek novels I read (and I have since read all of the ST original series novels). I believe Paramount Pictures would have been better served to have used this novel for the basis of their movie 'ST: First Contact'. It presents the first Vulcan/Earth contact in a more entertaining and satisfying manner than that portrayed in the aforementioned movie. There is humor, pathos, action, intrigue, and many other qualities that all contribute to good literature. One that I've read on several occasions, and always find something that I missed on previous readings. This book is what Star Trek is all about. Definitely one of the best in this genre.

A "giant" Star Trek book (it says so on the cover!) that delivers fairly well on the higher stakes and grander narrative that the long ST novels promise. This one is a book within a book and works fairly well as such. The plot involves Earth's First Contact with Vulcans (the book predates the TNG movie First Contact and tells a more interesting story, I think). A thoroughly enjoyable read with good characterization of ST staple characters and fantastic original characters but falls well short of five-star territory for a somewhat anti-climatic ending.
