I really like Star Trek. The whole concept is fascinating to me. When I heard there was a book about a secret organization within the Star Trek universe, not to mention within Starfleet, I had to get it. As much as I love Star Trek, I also love a good spy story. The mix of the two really had me anticipating this book. So, long story short, this was good. Please note I did not say it knocked my socks off or was a definite must read. It was good. This first book in the Section 31 series deals with the Star Trek Original Series crew; Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Chekov, Scotty, Uhura, Sulu, etc. Part of the book deals with a mission the crew of the Enterprise accomplished when they stole a cloaking device from the Romulan Empire. You do not see the particulars in this book, you are just made aware of the fact that it was done. That sets up the story for the research facility that has developed a weapon from this cloaking device, and the Enterprise’s attempt to stop the experiments. The problem I had with the book is that parts of the book felt rushed, and parts felt thrown together just for the sake of putting out a Star Trek novel. An example is when Kirk meets a woman at a science conference, they get together, they kiss and she had to leave immediately to go back with her colleagues. They become infatuated with each other and he meets up with her towards the end of the book and her character does a 180 from what you think she is from the brief time you know her. Another upsetting part is how Mr. Spock looks over some calculations and tells the people he is dealing with that their calculations are wrong, and the people tell Spock he is wrong. Excuse me? You mean to tell me that the Science Officer that we all know and love made a mis-calculation? And these people who know of his reputation just blow him off? All in all is was good, not the best I have read, but certainly not the worst. It is good for a bit of quick guilty pleasure reading.

This is the first in a four book series. Each features one of the first four Star Trek television series in a continuing story about “Section 31,” a secret organization within Starfleet, using any means necessary to further the protection and goals of the United Federation of Planets. The first installment is about the characters of the Original Series including: Kirk, Spock, McCoy, etc. It is an interesting start, but I look forward to diving into the next volume. Fans will appreciate this type of series. Michael Travis Jasper, Author of the Novel “To Be Chosen”

(Very slight spoilers) Personally, I couldn't put this book down. I didn't see much of the Original Series but I the author did a nice job of giving personality to each member of the crew. The whole tie in with Omega was great and a nice way to combine Voyager with TOS. I have yet to read the other Section 31 books yet but in this one their whole part of the book is underlying and the direct involvement is never specifically mentioned.

I do not recommend this book. For one thing I do not beleive that the Romulan Commander would give Spock who obviously is loyal to the Federation any sensitive information regarding the Cloaking Device or any military secrets of the Romulan Empire. That made no sence as she is loyal to her Empire. And she would still be very angrey with him over the theft of that device in the first place. The book was not in keeping with the characters.

I recently read Cloak, and personally, I wouldn't read it again. The book starts out slow, and stays slow. The only thing of interest is the discovery of Omega. That would be the only reason I would tell you to read Cloak. Right now, I am reading Rogue, which is more interesting. I would recommend jumping to Rogue. There is nothing in Cloak that tells you anything except a little bit at the end, which still isn't alot to compliment the rest of the book.
