    1. The Galactic Whirlpool was the final Star Trek novel released by Bantam books before the licence was handed over to Pocket Books What intrigued me the most about this novel was that it was written by David Gerrold, a writer who was involved quite deeply with Star Trek and who wrote the much loved Season 2 episode, The Trouble with Tribbles.The story is based around a pre FTL vessel known as the Wanderer which is found by the Enterprise to be heading towards the galactic whirlpool, two singularit [...]

    2. Some very old school Star Trek , courtesy of one of the original series break out writers It s as much a pure science fiction novel in its own right as it is a Trek adventure there is a great deal of world building, character development, scientific examination, and minute attention to detail It can slow the pace of the book down considerably, but the slower pace doesn t make it any less enjoyable That said, it does feel very different to recent Trek novels, and as a result, the experience was [...]

    3. Above average classic Trek tie in novel written pre movies by the man who invented Tribbles Gerrold is also a a genius SF author in general Feels like an episode.

    4. From the creator of Trouble with tribbles , comes this adventure of Captain James Tiberius Kirk and the Starship Enterprise The craftsman of Mr Gerrold shows once again, dealing situations most thrillingly and smoothly, passing from a non related situation to the heart of the story, and a great character development Great Summer reading.

    5. Short Star Trek novel by the guy who wrote the TV episode Trouble With Tribbles , would have made a nice episode though the book discusses science and pseudo science in depth Here the Enterprise is on a mission to find a Klingon ship intruding in Federation space, and finds a huge spaceship that seems nearly dead Good story, characters and writing, enjoyed it.

    6. Easily the most enjoyable book of the entire Bantam run, with a good dose of humour, an interesting society admittedly another lost colony scenario and an assured writing hand.

    7. In my reviews for some of the previous Star Trek books I ve read, I ve said that most of them are decent stories, but they lack meat on their bones This one is something entirely different David Gerrold really takes his time establishing scenery, internal dialogue, the emotional sides of the story, and so on This isn t just a Star Trek story, it s a full blown NOVEL And an interesting one at that.Another unique aspect of this novel is that good ol Kevin Riley is one of the most central character [...]

    8. The concept is good and intriguing The execution however Gerrold has this odd way of conveying ideas He doesn t have the characters just explain themselves Rather, he uses a let me tell you a story method where an awkward aside is taken by the characters themselves The story is going along and then, it s Spock, tell us a story time Or In Starfleet, we have this saying Or, back in my academy days It doesn t work Written in 1980, this book is using well established characters Why then does Gerrold [...]

    9. This was definitely one of the top ten Star Trek novels I ve read There s a lot of good characterization, informative exposition and a damn good science fiction story in this one Hard not to be, considering David Gerrold s done nearly as much for the franchise as the Great Bird himself The story is set in the original series era, with all sorts of nuances, like cameos by Lt Arex and M Ress, and a great supporting role by Kevin Riley that nearly steals the book I m not going to detail much about [...]

    10. These notes were made in 1982 The most substantial of the Star Trek novels I have read lately, excepting only Vonda McIntyre s novelization of STII, which was very good indeed This one premises a floating society in a ship world as in the Yonada episode, but a less primitive society, and a divided one The Problem to bring the two sides together in order to prevent complete destruction of the entire population Gerrold s fictional writing is less objectionably arrogant than his non fiction, and al [...]

    11. Missing for 185 years, the non FTL Earth vehicle Wanderer has devolved Half pious traditionalists, half starving warriors, all superstitious and illiterate The landing party leader is Lt Kevin Riley, and it s a welcome return for the character Enterprise s lawyer and historian also appear, and would be right at home on The Big Bang Theory Occasionally amusing, some nice thoughts about putting in the effort now to make things better for one s descendants No one is as irritating as Gerrold s Bem c [...]

    12. Why I Read This Book I ve been on a bit of a Star Trek kick I re read this particular book because it was praised by Steve Roby on his Complete Starfleet Library website On the minus side, the book is hip deep in Tuckerisms, and other practices that tend to knock me out of the story There are some very purple passages as well On the plus side, it ended extremely well Finished 2013 07 11 19 05 59.2 0.15s Approximately

    13. A great ST novel from a veteran Trek writer The author has intimate knowledge of the characters, and it comes through on each page While there is quite a bit of tongue in cheek references, I can easily look past them into the heart of this beautiful book It encompasses the best of what the Federation is, who our beloved characters are, and the strings that binds them together and makes for a truly believable universe My only gripe was that it was tied up too quickly, and I would have loved to ha [...]

    14. One of the early Star Trek novels published in October, 1980 and, other than a couple of out of character statements by Mr Spock, was actually pretty good And as an added bonus, the story features an Enterprise crew member who received woefully too little airtime in the original series episodes, the I m proud to be Irishman , Lt Kevin Riley.

    15. This novel is by an outstanding science fiction author who wrote the script of one of the most beloved episodes The Trouble With Tribbles in the original Star Trek Series If I don t rate it highly, it s that especially given that background, I found the novel disappointing emphasis on the hard science than the characters a bit arid, even if well done in that regard.

    16. Hands down, by far, above and beyond the best of the Star Trek Bantam Novels Star Trek Adventures There is still one to go in this series Death s Angels , but I d say this one is going to be pretty tough to beat.It was written by David Gerrold, though, so I guess that says a lot.

    17. Well written story with good characterization of Kirk as compassionate and thoughtful Despite bogging down in a few places with techy expositions, it s a fun adventure of the original crew.

    18. Began a little slowly, but progressed very well Very solid ST novel Also I loved OC characters, which does not happen often,great historian Enterprise has in it Enjoyed this book a lot.

    19. This was pretty good, I enjoyed the characterization of Kirk, and his battles within himself Also the descriptions of the ship were interesting.
