Starfleet's most sacred commandment has been violated. Its most honored captain is in disgrace, its most celebrated starship in pieces, and the crew of that ship scattered among the thousand worlds of the Federation...Thus begins Prime Directive, an epic tale of the Star Trekreg universe.

Journey with Spock, McCoy, and the rest of the former crew of the Starship EnterpriseTM to Talin -- the planet where their careers ended. A world once teeming with life that now lies ruined, its cities turned to ashes, its surface devastated by a radioactive firestorm -- because of their actions.

This is one of the Star Trek books where you really can't imagine the main characters undertaking the actions the authors have them doing. It is noticeable that Paramount allowed new starring characters with more open story lines

Apart from this, the action is reasonably gripping and the pages kept turning

In this particular case, Kirk and the command crew of the Enterprise have been deemed to have caused the destruction of civilisation on the planet of Talin when the two main societies on that planet destroy each other in an unanticipated nuclear exchange. The action alternates between the past of the mission to Talin and the present where the bridge crew have been forced out of Starfleet (as if that's all that would have happened to them!!). ( )

'The fate of an entire civilised world and the fate of more than two billion beings rests in your hands, sir. What will you do?'

I'm giving this TOS adventure four stars for the promise of the plot, rather than the execution of storytelling, and for the characters. Gotta love a Star Trek writer who gets the characters (almost) right. Captain Kirk is the ever curious leader who is 'genuinely interested in just about everything', Spock the half-human Vulcan who 'decides that 'his home was space', and the crew are the loyal band of Starfleet's finest who 'make the Enterprise so special'. The whole set-up is so nostalgic and heartwarming, I could even overlook the cliched use of catchphrases - Bones gets in the best line with 'I'm a pirate, not a doctor' - but BUT. My one annoyance would have to be Kirk's flirtation with Carolyn Palamas, the blonde lieutenant who had to give up the chance of becoming a goddess in 'Who Mourns for Adonais?' First of all, Kirk would never get involved with a member of his crew - maybe I should qualify that with 'female' member of his crew, haha - and his attitude towards Carolyn in Adonais was 'Man up, soldier, you have a duty to Starfleet and your crewmates!' So there isn't even a canon suggestion that he would have gone there - although Scotty tried in the same episode, and failed. Secondly, WHY? The whole dalliance served no purpose whatsoever, apart from being incredibly out of character. I was equal parts confused and annoyed by that.

Anyway, The story does what is says on the tin - Kirk and the crew are accused of breaking the Prime Directive, Starfleet's Number One Rule of noninterference with alien civilisations, and destroying an entire planet in the process. Oops. The opening chapters, catching up with the 'Enterprise Five' (or the bridge crew) are the best, especially Scotty raising hell on the damaged Enterprise, and I love how fiercely loyal the gang are to Kirk, but the rest of the tale, about the aliens on 'Kirk's World' and how much they had to do with the destruction of their own planet, not to mention the blather about the Prime Directive, could almost have made this a TNG novel in disguise. I may have been guilty of speed reading after a point. And the reunion of the crew with their captain was strangely underwhelming too. But still better than a Greg Cox novel! ( )

Published in September 1991 at the time of the 25th anniversary of Star Trek, Prime Directive is a fine example of good Trek fiction. The book notes that this story takes place during the final year of the Enterprise's five year mission. We only got three years on TV. I think this would probably be set before the adventures that occur in the animated series.

The major characters feel pretty authentic to the ones we know so well from the original series TV and film. To me that is pretty important with these books, although Sulu and Checkov have less to work with as relatively minor characters from the series and maybe that is why they came across less distinctive to me here. I think someone like Checkov is hard to define and giving him a few wobbly v's in speech may be the best most authors can do.

This novel is also among the best trek fiction I have read. Each of the main characters has a part to play. A planet (Talin IV) and civilization have been destroyed. The Enterprise is virtually unsalvageable. Only Scotty remains with Starfleet on board the Enterprise and he wants to resign as Spock, Kirk, Sulu etc have all resigned in disgrace. What went wrong? That is the central mystery of this excellent story. This is one of the longer Trek novels and feels only a little drawn out after a very good start, the pirate sequence with Sulu and Checkov seemed overlong and overbaked, which is perhaps my only real complaint.

All in all this was a very good adventure story, although I would say that parts of this story are better than the whole. But once this gets going, it goes. Recommended for all fans of Star Trek. ( )

Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens' Star Trek: Prime Directive reads like an episode of The Original Series. Set during the Enterprise's five year mission, the authors perfectly portray the characters, challenge the reader with new ideas, and use the story as a metaphor to discuss the continued possibility of nuclear conflict on Earth. The Reeves-Stevenses structure the story in a disjointed manner, beginning with the immediate consequences of a disaster that heavily damaged the Enterprise, caused ecological destruction on a planet, and ended the careers of most of the senior staff. From there, they flashback to the event itself, before concluding with the resolution. The authors successfully create a sense of longing for space travel, using aliens' experiences to mirror the feelings of humanity in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. In addition, their story further bridges the time between the end of The Original Series and The Motion Picture. Fans of Star Trek will find this a must-read. ( )

The adventures of Kirk & Crew never get old. This book was released in 1991, so a lot of Prime Directive and First Contact canon is slightly outdated, but its not a big deal. The story was interesting and the characters felt pretty true to the show. I liked the little cameos of characters that have appeared elsewhere in the series or the movies. ( )

According to the records as they existed at that time, of the original twelve Constitution-class starships that had embarked on Starfleet's visionary program of five-year-missions, five had already been lost in the service of the United Federation of Planets: The USS Contitution as the last casualty of an ancient war, the Intrepid in the Gamma 7A system, the Excalibur in war-game maneuvers, the Defiant in the Tholian Annex, and the Enterprise during the incident at Talin IV.
