    This review can also be found on my blog, Dana and the Books. Another fantastic addition to the Star Trek relaunch novels! A must read for any Star Trek fan who wants to see the Trek universe continue in the 24th century. The story takes place post-Nemesis and does tie into the other relaunch novels.

A must read for any Star Trek fan who wants to see the Trek universe continue in the 24th century. The story takes place post-Nemesis and does tie into the other relaunch novels. But it's not mandatory to read them all to jump into this one (I definitely haven't. There are TONS. I'm not made of unlimited free time). Any references to previous plot points do have a basic explanation so the reader doesn't get lost in the Delta Quadrant of understanding. The ship at the centre of Fire With Fire is the USS Prometheus -- first introduced to us in the Voyager episode Message in a Bottle. And what a ship it is: super high tech, fastest ship in the fleet, and multi-vector assault mode (yes!). I would definitely suggest watching the episode for a refresh to familiarize yourself with the Prometheus (and it's also a good excuse to watch Star Trek so you can't really go wrong here). Originally written in German, I found the writing in this one was a bit simpler than other Star Trek novels, which isn't a bad thing at all. It just means I was able to read it faster and have longer binge reading sessions. I loved that there were so many aliens; they outnumbered the humans for sure. Starfleet on TV can be very human-centric -- or even just human passing -- so seeing such a diverse cast was refreshing. Lenissa was my favourite of the crew (I will always love Andorians).  Also a shoutout to Alexander Rozhenko. He annoyed me in Next Generation (I find a lot of the Star Trek child characters irritating), but I actually liked him here. All grown up and important. Like other Star Trek books, it jumped around from character to character and told each of their stories and how it fits into the big picture. I felt the first half jumped around a bit too much. I would have liked more chapters about the core characters on the Prometheus rather than chapters about one off characters. However, the second half of the book was more focused and I hope the remaining two books will continue that way. Fire With Fire felt like the first part of a multi episode story arc and I can't wait to find out how it ends! Thanks so much to Titan Books for sending over a review copy!

There is peace with the Klingons. The Borg are defeated. Other races has build a new pact and tensions run high and now this. There will never be peace in this universe. The characters include a descendant of Kirk's brother. There is a young Renao who is wondering what his people are up to. The Captain of the ship who is trying to solve this mystery without the Klingons going all kill them all. I do prefer the show or movies cos they are always so visually awesome. But it was fun reading a book for once too.

    It's not often that the world of Star Trek fiction gets an entry from an unlikely place & yet that is the case with the "Star Trek: Prometheus" series. Authors Bernd Perplies & Christian Humberg begin this series (originally written in German" with "Fire With Fire" launching a new series with a lot of potential to start. The book opens with the USS Valiant entering the Lembatta Cluster of space & encountering some sort of unknown radiation in the 23rd century.

Authors Bernd Perplies & Christian Humberg begin this series (originally written in German" with "Fire With Fire" launching a new series with a lot of potential to start. The book opens with the USS Valiant entering the Lembatta Cluster of space & encountering some sort of unknown radiation in the 23rd century. Fast forward to the present era in late 2385 to find the exploits of the USS Prometheus (seen in Voyager's "Message in a Bottle") leaving the Tzenkethi border & heading for DS9 in the aftermath of the events of "Star Trek: The Fall". While the ship is docked at the station, Starbase 91 it comes under attack by an unknown assailant & is destroyed killing nearly 4000 lives. Another subsequent attack on a Klingon moon forces the IKS Bortas (last seen in TNG's "Rightful Heir") also into action to combat the threat. Both ships rendezvous near the Lembatta Cluster where the race is on to figure out just who caused these attacks & why. Humberg & Perplies create a world that is immensely entertaining & fascinating as we the reader get a chance to see another side of the events in the world of 2385 that we haven't seen as well as a better understanding of the how perilous the galactic neighborhood is. It's nice to use the use of familiar characters in Alexander Rozhenko, Mendon, & Spock as well throughout the book as we the reader have a completely different set of crew & circumstances to work with in a series that is as enjoyable to read as anything written before. Additionally, the authors stay close to the current canon in fiction & keep everything as close as they can which makes this book (the 1st of 3) fit very nicely into the fiction universe. Overall, the story is very well written with believable characters along with plot twist after plot twist that will have readers guessing as to what will happen next. The Renao (the race that inhabits the Lembatta cluster) are also fleshed out in a way that make them believable as well along w/ the Purifying Flame (the terrorist group claiming responsibility for the attacks). A very satisfying entry into a series whose next 2 books I eagerly await to be translated into English and released in 2018.

    I wanted to like this book; it fits comfortably into the current novel continuity, and it's a quadrant-spanning adventure that takes in a lot of current Trek storylines. However, it has two problems I simply couldn't get past. The first is that I didn't find the crew of the Prometheus anything to write home about. They were wallpaper to me, and actually paled in comparison to the novel's Klingon contingent. But what truly irritated me was the explosive fanwank over-drive.

They were wallpaper to me, and actually paled in comparison to the novel's Klingon contingent. But what truly irritated me was the explosive fanwank over-drive. There are many people who do fanwank extremely well -- in the Trek novels, Kristen Beyer and Greg Cox are two such masters of the art. However, this novel takes it beyond all sane bounds. Too many cameos combined with too many outrageously long (almost encyclopedic) info-dumps combine to create a novel that screams in my head "fan fiction". Perhaps its unfair (isn't all tie-in fiction fan fiction?), but there's an earnestness here that seems too eager-to-please-fandom, as opposed to getting on and telling the story. I don't actively dislike this book, but there is too much here that frustrates and disappoints me.

    I jumped ahead of myself a bit in the timeline because I was so excited to read this. I love the USS Prometheus and have been so surprised that no one has really made much use of it. I think the authors did an excellent job of creating a crew of characters that I’m interested to read more about. They fit in quite well with established Trek characters. They feel like they belong in the universe. I’m especially interested to see more of first Officer Roaas; a male Caitian.

I also thought the authors did a great job of structuring the novel in a familiar Trek format. It was easy to see how the chapters might translate to filmed scenes. They were just the right length and the authors took you from place to place in a very familiar-feeling way. It was very like watching an episode of 90s Trek. The main criticism I have of this novel is that some of the writing seemed a tad clunky but I’m willing to bet that is because of the translation from German to English. I’m excited to read the next instalment in May!

You have a good sen Terrorist attack a Federation Star Base and a Klingon mining base and extremist calling themselves the Purifying Flame have claimed responsibility and declared war on the great space empire. Their spokesman is a Renao. The USS Prometheus and a Klingon Battle Cruiser are dispatched to investigate and begin with the home system of the Renao, a species that’s tried to isolate itself from the Galaxy. The book does a great job world building with the Renao and the Lembatta Cluster. You have a good sense of who these people are and why they would come into conflict with the Federation. It also incorporates events of recent novels without getting so bogged down in the details that people who haven’t read the novels will get lost. The book explores interesting ideas about interference, racial differences, terrorism, and the way nations engage with one another. By the end of the book, you begin to get the feeling that there’s far more to what’s going on than a terrorist cell from an obscure sector of the galaxy. I also like the inclusion of the elderly Spock in this late 24th century Universe. I’m willing to overlook the improbability of him to be this hands-on with an operation, and even more improbably, take a station on the bridge of the Prometheus in the midst of a battle. The older and wiser Spock as seen in the Films and on the Next Generation is a delightful fount of wisdom and the writers make good use of him here. His kindness to a young Renao who had joined the Federation before the current unpleasantness is a nice touch and provides some good moments to the book. I also enjoyed the machinations of the Klingon crew fascinating. Oftentimes, it’s easy to assume that Klingons are Klingons, but they’re also individuals and this book captures all those individual viewpoints quite well and the friction that runs within the ship. I also thought Alec Newman did a very good narrating and bringing all these characters to life. The book’s problem can be summed up with pacing and padding. There are three things that slow down the story: First, you have a lot of unnecessary cameos from well-known Star Trek characters. As much as I liked Spock’s appearance, most of the rest of these are rather pointless. If that was all, it would be forgivable. However, we also have time spent with characters who are there for one scene only such as Terrorists who blow themselves up and people blown up by the terrorists. We spend a ridiculous amount of time with these characters that we really didn’t need to. All of the one and done characters (except for the Ferengi Ex-Spy) are pointless. The least forgivable drag on the book is the huge number of meetings of Federation and Klingon high-ups. To my mind, the book doesn’t really get going until seventy percent in. When it does, it’s really good, but it takes forever. And as a result of a lack of focus, many of the characters including Richard Adams, the Prometheus’ Captain are barely known. This book would have been great had it gotten to the point quicker and focused more on the actual crews of the ships rather than focusing on so many characters that have a limited connection to the story.

    There are a lot of positives to this book: 1. A new and engaging crew. 2. The return of the IKS Bortas. 3. A thorough examination by a relateable character who feels outcast from his home after experiencing the wider world(s). 4. Very well written. 5. Sympathetic political characters (e.g. our old friend Chancellor Martok, and the new Federation President). The main negative is the same as that of all the recent Trek books: The franchise is floundering without footing, novel-wise. With the re-launch There are a lot of positives to this book: 1.

The main negative is the same as that of all the recent Trek books: The franchise is floundering without footing, novel-wise. With the re-launch we had the Typhon Pact created because they thought it would be cool to do the Cold War in space...forgetting that was how the Klingons and Romulans originally were portrayed (hell, the introduction of the Romulans in TOS was an episode about MAD). President Bacco was modeled after JFK and assassinated. The Rise of the Federation pits Space Democrats against Space Tea Party. Now we have Space 9/11 and the laziness of the Renao names is astounding when trying to sound "close to, but not quite" Arabic; like "ak Namor" instead of "al Namor", it's one letter off on the keyboard! It just seems like the franchise is trying to see if anything earth-shattering in the real world can be successfully adopted for a Trek storyline, which is not the way that Star Trek in particular, has used its science fiction nature, to make commentaries upon our society.

The region is already unstable and the crew of Prometheus are tasked with stopping further attacks and potential galactic warfare. I really wanted to like this book.

The region is already unstable and the crew of Prometheus are tasked with stopping further attacks and potential galactic warfare. I really wanted to like this book. I thought it was rad that an original Trek novel was written in a language other than English at last. But damn, it read like fanfiction. I mean, I suppose all of the novels are fanfiction, but they don’t act like it. Other Trek novels are better written and more engaging. The crew of Prometheus are, frankly, kind of boring. There really aren’t any stand-out characters for me. I kind of wonder if the authors recognized that, weren’t sure quite how to fix it, and so brought in a shitload of cameos by other characters to make up for it. The Klingons were more interesting, which is saying something coming from me since I’ve never been that interested in the Klingons. Parts of this also came across as almost...racist? I’m not sure it is that blatant, but the way in which some of the characters were described or spoken to just put me off. If someone said things like that to me or in front of me, I would have told them off. I can’t even think of an example of it anymore - I listened to the audiobook rather than reading it where I could make notes on the pages - but some phrases just set me on edge and not in a good way. Maybe it was a translation issue, I don’t know. The audiobook thing is another issue. Normally, I love audiobooks. I have never listened to a Trek audiobook, though, since if it’s a book about, say, Lorca, I want Jason Isaacs to narrate it. Or Patrick Stewart for a Picard-centric book, Michelle Yeoh for Georgiou, etc, etc. Since this book isn’t set in one of the actual series with the characters I know and love, I figured it wouldn’t make me mental to have someone who isn’t Jason Isaacs/ Patrick Stewart/ Michelle Yeoh narrating. And in that regard, I was correct. It didn’t bother me that the narrator didn’t sound anything like them. He has a pleasant voice, in fact, and I would probably listen to more of the things he’s narrated. However, it drove me nuts at how many words he mispronounced. It wasn’t a dialect thing, either, or a Britishism. It was just wrong. Like ‘hegemony.’ Got it wrong every time. And a few other actual words I can’t think of now. And even words specific to the Trek-verse were wrong. I know, I know, they are made up and not real but even so, can you at least pronounce them like they are in the various series? It’s TAL shee-AR’ not ‘tal SHY-er,’ ‘KIT-o-mer’ not ‘kit-OH-mer.’ It’s levi-OH-sa, not levio-SAR. I mean, it’s the little things, you know? Overall, this is a solid ‘meh’ for me. I like a new Trek book, but this one fell short for me.

    It's been years since I read a Star Trek book, but a reading challenge prompt was to read something being read by a stranger in public. This is the first in a 3-book series, set in and around the current mission of the Prometheus, a ship captained by Richard Adams in the time of the Enterprise-E. The plot was basically that a terrorist group from a nationalist unaligned civilization has gained Romulan tech to attack both Klingon and Federation outposts, and the Klingons want blood and vengeance It's been years since I read a Star Trek book, but a reading challenge prompt was to read something being read by a stranger in public. This is the first in a 3-book series, set in and around the current mission of the Prometheus, a ship captained by Richard Adams in the time of the Enterprise-E. The plot was basically that a terrorist group from a nationalist unaligned civilization has gained Romulan tech to attack both Klingon and Federation outposts, and the Klingons want blood and vengeance now, while the Federation want to investigate and make sure they're going after the true terrorists. And of course one of the officers on Prometheus comes from that civilization and is seen as a traitor to both. This was a fun reacquaintance with Spock (Ambassador, still alive) and Alexander Rozhenko (Worf's now-adult son, also an Ambassador), and brief encounters with Ro Laren, Miles O'Brien, and Quark on DS9. I didn't really care much about Adams, but his executive officer Lanissa (an Andorian) and Engineer Jenna Winona Kirk (a great-grand-niece of James T.) were kind of fun. We spend a lot of time in Nissa's head, and I think she's my favorite of this whole bunch.

    An exciting beginning to a brand new Star Trek book series. The USS Prometheus is a great choice for a starship to base a series around. It’s a cool design unlike my other in the franchise. Full of interesting story potential. The authors also fill the ship with a very interesting crew. I loved every character. The Andorian security chief is my favorite, with chief engineer Jenna Kirk a close second. The story was interesting, relevant to the times, and had a few great cameos.

One of the best paced Trek novels I’ve come across actually. Others have said, and I agree, that this felt very much like Trek on TV. It was hard to put down and I never felt bogged down by the story. You get what you need with no fluff and the story never stops moving.

    Thoroughly Serviceable Nothing about this book is bad, but little is excellent. The translation gets the job done but lacks finesse in parts. It's...rather on the nose with the subject matter.

    Disappointed While the story was interesting the writing seemed inconsistent. At times it felt more like fan fiction than professional story telling. It might have been helpful to narrow the focus a bit and develop some of the characters more. I felt like some of the one off characters like the crew of Starbase 91 were developed more than those who serve on the hero ship. I understand the author was trying to fit Prometheus into the larger Trek universe but having so many established characters Disappointed While the story was interesting the writing seemed inconsistent.

    Great fun on the Final Frontier! While many of the Trek novels have been translated - it's always been *from* English. This book is a first - a German Trek novel, now translated into English, and it's great fun. Lots of action, and - perhaps with an eye to tensions in our time - intrigue around terrorist acts. It's part of a new series by these authors and happily I already have next installment in hand! Great fun on the Final Frontier!

    A terrorist attack on a Federation Starbase and a Klingon mining colony leads Admiral Akaar to send the 'U.S.S. Prometheus' into Renao space to investigate. Along with the crew of the 'I.K.S. Bortas', Captain Richard Adams is unwilling to declare war until the full story is made plain.

    An enjoyable story featuring the voyages of the USS Prometheus (as seen on ST: Voyager). The story sounds a bit familiar (Prey, and Star Trek Online) in that some third party is working behind the scenes to attack the federation and the klingon empire, but just go with it. It was a good first novel. The only complaint is that the person reading the audiobook version doesn't seem to know how to pronounce some trek-related names (like Bajoran or Risa).

    The basic story is interesting, but it's clearly the first piece of a larger story and I have the impression that the whole trilogy is meant as a single story rather than three tales making up a whole. There's too much going on spread across too many characters. We don't get enough time with any of them to necessarily care about the outcome for any of them, with two exceptions: (view spoiler)[Spock (hide spoiler)] and (view spoiler)[Jenna Kirk (hide spoiler)] , for obvious reasons.

    The audiobook needed to be reviewed as there were numerous word mispronunciations. Some of them were because the narrator is British and obviously used the British pronunciation. But others, I am guessing, were because the narrator is not familiar with Star Trek. The story itself was okay. I don't know if I will listen to books 2 and 3.

Enjoying the new characters and glad to see that they can bring back a name if a famous character without actually using the character. Good book, highly recommend!

    A new ship and crew to follow in the Trekverse. Set in the post DS9 and assassination of President Bacco. Enjoyable read with lots going on and interesting characters. Cross references to other ships and crews. Will certainly look forward to the next in the trilogy

    Action packed and very Trek The story itself is well written without being overly SciFi. Books like this one is why Trek lit is always readable. The character, both protagonists and antagonists, are well thought out and written. I look forward to reading the next one.

    Wonderful book. I hope this will be a long series of books about the Prometheus. The next two novels are on the top of my books stack.
