Star Trek Original Series - The Entropy Effect 1

The author makes several references to "The black fleet", which he never explains. Or why Klingons in this novel have really long names. Or Lord knows why the author kept repeating the phrase "the naked stars". Or what the hell a "Thought Admiral" is. It's all in the FASA books, but far from common knowledge. Very un-cool. Third, this novel was written in Stick with your time frame, author, and forget "future speculation". Forth was the plot. It was like the Hunt for Red October, except less believable if thats possible. Oct 02, Mike Crate rated it really liked it Shelves: star-trek , scifi.

Rules of Engagement is a Klingon centric novel set well within the worldview I believe created by John M. Ford or at least that's where I first came across this variant of the Klingon culture. Kasak sutai-Khornezh has had the "honour" of taking out the first ship of any new class and when the ground breaking vessel IKS Hakkarl is set for her first flight he seizes the opportunity to do a little privateering with a goal to claim a Federation world for the Empire and as it turns out take epic reve Rules of Engagement is a Klingon centric novel set well within the worldview I believe created by John M.

The Enterprise is assigned to oversee the removal of Federation personnel from the planet Dekkanar after a change of administration has made it anti-Federation, strict policies prevent the three Starfleet vessels and crews from making for use of the capabilities leaving them open to aggression, not the ideal time for a Klingon Battle Cruiser to turn up regardless of motivations and of course with the Organians always looking over everyone shoulder.

In Kasak sutai-Khornezh we have a fellow commander who is intelligent and cunning and makes the most of his advantages to manipulate the situation and that makes our "heroes" all the better for it. Nov 25, S. I felt like I had to work more than I wanted to in order to get through this Star Trek novel. Maybe a true Trekkie would disagree, but I also found the Klingons altogether too civil for my taste although I did enjoy the insights into Klingon culture. When there are Klingons in the storyline I expect more action.

Finally I didn't like the author referring to Captain Kirk as "Jim". Jim is for his close friends like Dr.

McCoy and Spock. If you like Star Trek, you should read this book. If you lik I felt like I had to work more than I wanted to in order to get through this Star Trek novel. If you like Klingons, then you shouldn't miss this one. But for everyone else, I think there are better Star Trek novels. Sep 10, Mark A Powell rated it did not like it. When the Enterprise is sent on a diplomatic mission, the arrival of Klingons puts Kirk and his crew in a deadly situation. Further compounding the problems, his pacing is maddeningly slow in the first three quarters of the book, and the conclusion is little more than standard episode-of-the-week fare.

A weak plot, plodding and ultimately forgettable. Jul 25, Mikael Kuoppala rated it liked it. A book that tries to illuminate the Klingons and their culture, but somehow drops the ball at some point. Oddly structured. We have recently uncovered a box of old books filled with Trek titles from years ago.

About Jason Bucky Roberts

Once upon a time, my wife and I would cruise used book shops all over, because early in our marriage, we had very little money. There were other treats as well. It seems I'll be occupied for some time. This novel was selected at random, not at all in sequence, to refresh my memory about this great series of easy reads in the Star Trek universe. This story took awhile to get my attention, but it ended very well. I would recommend these to anyone.

Easy reading, fun, with authors who twist and turn. Like football. The College games are fun because the players always do the unexpected. So do these authors. Shore Leave for the crew of the 'U. Enterprise' is cancelled when the people of Dekkanar demand the Federation withdraw from their planet. While removing personnel, a renegade Klingon officer approaches requesting asylum. He and his crew are in possession of stolen military technology and are willing to provide this to Starfleet.

Kirk is not convinced, but must abide by the terms of the Organian Treaty - no matter what the cost.

Shelves: science-fiction. I'm currently rereading this. I enjoyed the book the first time I read it. The story is good, the characterizations are excellent and it presents an aspect of Starfleet that wasn't shown in any of the shows until Enterprise , that of the Starfleet Marines not called MACO's, but still the same idea. It's a fun read I'm currently rereading this.

It's a fun read and I recommend it. Feb 05, Daniel Kukwa rated it liked it Shelves: star-trek.

It has a great handle on the regular characters, presents the reader with a fascinating, irritating, and occasionally hilarious group of Klingons A forgotten entry in the Star Trek series that could use some fresh publicity. Aug 15, Jonathon Laudinsky rated it liked it. Dec 13, Travis rated it liked it Shelves: star-trek. Nothing special, just a good solid game of cat and mouse played between the Enterprise and the Klingons. Would have made a decent TV episode. A bit slow in a lot of places, but the overall concept was excellent!

No weapons are to be displayed, no shields raised, no shots fired. Meanwhile, halfway across the galaxy , an experimental Klingon warship sets forth on a mission of its own, a warship with hidden - and therefore undreamed of - capabilities, commanded by a warrior who will stop at nothing to bring glory to the Empire - and restore his own lost honor. The Enterprise is assigned to evacuate the Federation embassy on Dekkanar: The planet has broken off diplomatic ties under pressure from terrorist groups.

However, the ship is placed under General Order Twelve : They are to make no offensive or defensive moves unless clearly attacked. Meanwhile, Klingon captain Kasak , who has been reduced to taking ships on test runs since being caught up in Kirk's encounter with Koloth on Station K-7 , is given charge of Hakkarl , a battle cruiser controlled remotely from a scout ship, Tazhat. He takes it on an unauthorised mission to Dekkanar, intending to provoke Kirk into firing on him, breaking the treaty so the Organians will step in and award the planet to the Klingons.

Kasak first claims to Kirk that he is planning to defect, believing that if he then tries to take the experimental ships away Kirk will attempt to disable them. However, the plan falls apart when a fleet of Klingon ships arrives to take him into custody. Kasak convinces the fleet commander, Korzhan , that the Dekkani terrorists have fired on him in the hope Kirk will defend them but Kirk simply shields their ships and manages to talk Korzhan round. Kasak's crew surrender to Korzhan, leaving him to challenge Kirk alone. The Enterprise manages to damage Hakkarl' s control system and it ends up destroying Tazhat , killing Kasak.

Realising that the only alternative is Klingon occupation, Dekkanar resumes ties with the Federation. The stardate is given as
