Starting to enjoy the Star Trek series of books. We started out with a Voyager entry and now I'm in TOS (The Original Series) with Kirk and Bones. The Patrian Transgression (1994) by Simon Hawke. It's off to great start.
Like the series, it appears to parallel our current issues we've been having around here for a while.
Mosaic (Star Trek, Voyager) was a great romp through Janeway's life. Having seen the television series, this was a great introduction to the novels and her character. My daughter thinks it's pretty cool that a scientist is a captain of a spaceship and laughed that she was forced to learn tennis. I even just found myself using some of Jerry Taylor's insights If everything you do is easy, how would you ever learn or grow? when talking about planning after school activities.
These Star Trek books are readily available everywhere. We find them at the used book stores, PaperBackSwap.com and hey look: for one penny at Amazon.com.
