Overview

In the twenty-first century: Years before the formal first contact that would be recorded in Earth's history, a Vulcan space vessel crash-lands in the South Pacific, forcing humanity to decide whether to offer the hand of friendship, or the fist of war. Complicating matters is a second visitation: a group of people from two hundred years in the future, who serve on a starship called Enterprise....

In the twenty-third century: A new novel called Strangers from the Sky reveals the truth about this heretofore unknown first contact. Reading the novel leads to nightmares that torment Admiral James T. Kirk -- dreams of his dead comrades, Gary Mitchell, Lee Kelso, and Elizabeth Dehner, from his earliest days aboard the U.S.S. Enterprise™; visions of a forgotten past in which he somehow changed the course of history and destroyed the Federation before it began.

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.
