  • Paul T. Semones at the Library of the Prophets has reviewed 'Stargazer Book One: Gauntlet.' Here's an extract from the article:

    The new Stargazer series has really been something I was looking forward to. Following up a youthful Captain Picardís earliest days as a Starfleet captain, and picking up where The Valiantís engaging storyline left off, Michael Jan Friedman's two-part miniseries promised to start off every Trek fanís summer right. I dunno, maybe MJF was on a tight deadline for this one, but Gauntlet is some of his worst writing that I can recall.

    The book was awarded a D grade in the full review.

  • Jamahl Epsicokhan recently updated Star Trek: Hypertext with his very positive review of Enterprise's 'Shockwave.' Here's an extract from his analysis:

    "Shockwave" is bookended with some chilling images that burned themselves into my mind. Those images are enough to elevate an already standout story into the realm of memorable excellence. Trek hasn't absorbed me in this way in some time. And I'm pleased also to report that there's a depth and emotional arc to this story that's convincing.

    The episode scored 4 out of 4 in the full review.
