performs a very cool weaving together of lots Trek history, and the sealing
of plot holes from other Trek movies and episodes.
As to Roberta Lincoln.. .she was supposed to appeal to the young women of
the 1960s... as presented by a bunch of Old White Guys (tm). I think that
pretty much sums it up. :D
The final one on Ceti Alpha, 'To Reign in Hell', left me wanting. From that
one I did like the expansion of what happened in STII:TWoK, the plot-hole
filling, the inclusion of draft script information to create the focal
point of the book, and the additional history, but somehow it still left me
wanting. I think perhaps it was the patently manufactured peril facing Kirk
in the here and now. Yeah, I think that spoiled the rest of it for me.
