Götterdämmerung, Trek Style

The Destiny trilogy answers the question, "how much stuff/aliens/references can I pack into one piece of fan fiction?" The answers is "a lot."

You get all the captains*: Picard, Riker, (Ezri) Dax, passing references to Janeway and Archer. You get all the aliens*: humans, Klingons, Romulans, Andorians, even aliens whose race was never mentioned in a canon show or film but is part of canon like Efrosians (the President of the Federation in 2293 with droopy moustache and wild hair). You get all the bad guys*: Borg, Nausicaans. And you get bonus additional material, like a super-powered alien race you've never seen before, the Caeliar!

[*Surprisingly, though, you get no TOS crew and no Q.]

And are important things at stake? You bet! How about a war that might spell the end of galactic civilization as we know it (or know it through watching Star Trek on the TV)? How about minor romantic tiffs between characters we already know? How about a very detailed description of how to walk in a pair of self-fabricated snow shoes?

Seriously, though, I read these books because I am truly a fan of the Star Trek world and wanted to see what the written fiction was like while I took a completist romp through the entire body of existing TV episodes (both live action and cartoon) and movies (both regular time-line and Kelvin Timeline). The author is a professional writer who has written several Star Trek episode scripts and has done quite a few Star Trek books that garner a great deal of praise on the Internet. When I refer to these works as "fan fiction" I don't meant to suggest anything negative about the author, but rather to suggest a genre that assumes its readers know the basic background of the setting and characters and attempts to offer them something that they cannot get from the canonical works. Certainly, that describes these books.

Ultimately, though, I think I would have more enjoyed reading a fresh work by the author, as I had the feeling that he was a bit cramped by the overwhelming press of Trekness: someone has to drink a raktajino every hundred pages or so; Worf has to walk around with a Bat'leth on a regular basis. I found the sub-arc regarding humans who had found themselves chained to a "beautiful prison" with all their needs taken care of and no way out particular effective, and I imagine that the author is capable of even more when unleashed from the requirements of the canon.

So, I guess I learned a lesson about fan fiction. ( )

A solid read, actually better than I expected from any novel in the Star Trek Universe. It keeps the mushy stuff to a bare minimum and gets on with the story line that is actually quite good. ( )

A little confusing with all the characters, since it references a lot of characters from previous star trek books, but the book did a good job at filling me in on any previous plot points I should be aware of. The story is interesting and I look forward to reading the next two in the series. ( )

Complicated, interesting and mysterious!

Mack weaves a complicated story,weaving back and forth in time to introduce the Caeliar, what K think are going to be the anti-borg. ( )

Star Trek Destiny #1: Gods of Night by David Mack is the first part in a trilogy which was a journey from beginning to end. Firstly, let me start by saying that when I initially ordered these I did so not realizing that they were written quite a few years ago which did cause me some confusion early on. (I bought them at a discount rate as an ebook set so I really should have put 2+2 together.) Secondly, let me give you the heads up that I didn't have (because I really went in blind, ya'll) that you need prior knowledge about The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, AND Nemesis (which is the one I had not seen (and still haven't seen)) if you want to have any hope of following along. If you haven't seen these you are going to be 1. lost and 2. very much spoiled for future events.

Now that that's all out of the way let's delve into the meat and potatoes of the plot of this book. Like most books that begin a series Gods of Night really lays down a lot of foundation for future action. And there is a lot of information to get through because there is a mess load of time travel back and forth with many, many different characters. (Hint: I didn't love this.) The reader follows 4 different Starfleet crews through multiple time periods which are denoted at the start of each new chapter. You have to be paying a lot of attention and since I read these as ebooks I found it a bit more challenging. Basically, the Caeliar are chanced upon by the Columbia and her crew and found to be so much more technically advanced that there is no chance of overpowering, negotiating, or escaping. The Borg are back and instead of assimilating they have changed their mission to one of annihilation. The Federation is trying to muster up the forces to stop the Borg without any success and the crew of the Columbia are just trying to get back home. SO many characters and so little time (ha time travel pun). I didn't love this book but I did continue the series because by the time I'd gotten to the end of this segment I was too invested to stop...and I'm glad I kept going because by the third book the action was intense, guys. (Wait til you get to the end!) For Gods of Night a 6/10 but check for the reviews of Mere Mortals and Lost Souls in the coming weeks to see what I thought of those and my overall series rating. ;-)

Quick rundown of details:

The Columbia captained by Erika Hernandez, the Aventine captained by Ezri Dax, the Titan captained by Will Riker, and of course the Enterprise captained by Jean-Luc Picard. The aliens encountered: the Borg and the Caeliar. The times explored: too many to recount. ( )
