    Definitely not the best of the series Some fun and exciting moments, but, overall, it fell flat for me.

    Read this one out of order, but that didn t matter A good read, with lots of interesting action, characters and atmosphere.

    What is it with sci fi and westerns I know, I know, Wagon Train to the Stars and all that Personally, I ve never been a fan of westerns so I ve never been a fan of the mashup Yes, Firefly is the obvious exception, but google Wild West C.O.W Boys of Moo Mesa to see the definitive sci fi western Point being, the odds were against me liking this book.Calhoun survived the destruction of the Excalibur and crashed on a primitive world, at a developmental era, or area, similar to the old west What is it with sci fi and westerns I know, I know, Wagon Train to the Stars and all that Personally, I ve never been a fan of westerns so I ve never been a fan of the mashup Yes, Firefly is the obvious exception, but google Wild West C.O.W Boys of Moo Mesa to see the definitive sci fi western Point being, the odds were against me liking this book.Calhoun survived the destruction of the Excalibur and crashed on a primitive world, at a developmental era, or area, similar to the old west The people look human ish, the social s are similar Calhoun, naturally, becomes the sheriff, and has it out with the local gang of outlaws and the businessman who s secretly bankrolling their shenanigans Meanwhile, Shelby is now captain of her own ship She surrounds herself with a bunch of stick to the rules types like herself, then ends up in a situation where she makes some rule bendy decisions in order achieve the greatest good and her goody two shoes subordinates give her a bit of an identity crisis Which could have been a good character moment, but it somehow lacked the right drama And then, inexplicably, three quarters of the way through, we get a continuation of the Morgan Lefler story, which ended on a cliffhanger in the last book.On the one hand, this was much better written than the last two All three of these came out in the same year, and this one was the first New Frontier hardback So this being the best of the three, withtime and effort put in, makes sense But I didn t enjoy any of the writing choices made in this

    This was the third and final of the Excalibur sub trilogy, this time focusing on Elizabeth Shelby and of course, Captain Mackenzie Calhoun, who clearly did not die in the destruction of the USS Excalibur, but managed to maroon himself on a nearby planet We also finally get a conclusion to Si Cwan and Lefler s two plots, left hanging from the previous books.Calhoun s plot was the majority of the action in this volume, and it was basically a Western, which was fun However, the woman that Mac hel This was the third and final of the Excalibur sub trilogy, this time focusing on Elizabeth Shelby and of course, Captain Mackenzie Calhoun, who clearly did not die in the destruction of the USS Excalibur, but managed to maroon himself on a nearby planet We also finally get a conclusion to Si Cwan and Lefler s two plots, left hanging from the previous books.Calhoun s plot was the majority of the action in this volume, and it was basically a Western, which was fun However, the woman that Mac helps here ended up being rather frustrating Despite several chapters from her perspective, I never really got why Rheela stayed in that town there s stubborn, and then there s just dumb If you like competent heroes, Calhoun is always fun to read.Shelby s plot was actually really interesting, as she s a former rules and regulations officer who frequently clashed with Calhoun s style, so it was fun to see her in a role where she both hand picked a crew who were rule sticklers but then had to lead after her experience under Calhoun.The conclusion of the Si Cwan and Lefler plots from the first and second books of this trilogy felt somewhat anticlimactic, and just made me wish that Peter David had come up with something else for them.And we definitely get a bit of a shakeup at the end of this book as Calhoun returns, view spoiler proposes marriage hide spoiler , and implies that he and Shelby will view spoiler patrol Sector 221 G together in their respective ships hide spoiler I ll be curious to see what happens next

    So Mac s alive shocker stuck in a Western on a backwater planet I honestly just skimmed this for the most part because well there was little to no surprise to be had here The biggest surprise is that the end to this book out schlocked the ending to Excalibur Renaissance, which flabbergasted me With where everyone is at this point, I am kind of wondering what the hell the next New Frontier novel will be about, if anything Two ships An entirely new crew on the Excalibur What So Mac s alive shocker stuck in a Western on a backwater planet I honestly just skimmed this for the most part because well there was little to no surprise to be had here The biggest surprise is that the end to this book out schlocked the ending to Excalibur Renaissance, which flabbergasted me With where everyone is at this point, I am kind of wondering what the hell the next New Frontier novel will be about, if anything Two ships An entirely new crew on the Excalibur What Anyway, it ll be good to get back into space again This whole experiment of blowing up the ship doing what COULD have been great character centric stories really backfired The most in depth character exploration involved saying nothing new in Renaissance And, OK, I guess Mac has a fair epiphany his character moves forward at the end of this one, but in a way that made me sneer and pull away For me to say why is a spoiler, but it just seemed really out of place here I m sticking with it for at least onebook because of McHenry, though, dammit

    I liked this book I m liking the characters in this Star Trek New Frontier series Just sorry I haven t been able to find anyof them, especially the earlier ones I d read a couple of the later books and it s good to find out how Calhoun came to adopt Moke At any rate, it s a good read with some interesting characters and a bit of action.

    This series started off superb and it impossibly gets better with every book Loved this one very much They are not flawless, for sure, but in the broadest sense, the books in this series are tons of easy reading fun Love Peter David.
