The Great Rift lies between the Sagittarius and Orion arms of the galaxy. Stars are scarce there, beyond the auhority of the Federation, and legends abound of lost civilizations and of ancient monsters that prey upon those who dare to venture into the vast darkness beyond the stars.
I'm always worried about admitting that I like Star Trek books, because some can be stilted with rather predictable plots. This is not one of those! What I love about this casual read is that when the characters speak it feels so natural that Im actually able to imagine the voices that watchers of the show are so used to. None of the actions seem out of character and its easy to enjoy their adventures. Whilst its true that this is not a great literary work, it is an enjoyable piece of fiction with some thoughful moral questions. Enjoy as a break from the more complex stuff.
