Michael Jan Friedman is the author of nearly sixty books of fiction and nonfiction, more than half of which bear the name Star Trek or some variation thereof. Ten of his titles have appeared on the New York Times bestseller list. He has also written for network and cable television, radio, and comic books, the Star Trek: Voyager® episode "Resistance" prominent among his credits.

He continues to advise readers that no matter how many Friedmans they know, the vast probability is that none of them are related to him.

Some parts of this are good and the books they come from are hopefully as well represented. however some of the parts are just not accurate to what is established in trek and has the feel of someone who writes for star wars for a living deciding to play both sides of the street. its worth a read but at times you feel kind of cheated in what you expect and what you should expect trek to be I give it a read at your own risk rating and be prepared to be upset.
