Contains five novellas involving the crew of the starship "da Vinci" and the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. Some of the characters will be familiar to fans of the Star Trek universe (such as Chief O'Brian and Scotty himself) while the rest of the cast is new. Of the five stories, I enjoyed "Collective Hindsight" by Aaron Rosenberg the most, followed closely by "The Demon" by Loren L. Coleman and Randall N. Bills. In the first of these, the crew finds a strange unmanned alien ship they had previously encountered and believed destroyed. They must now figure out their past mistake and destroy the ship for good while outrunning an enemy. In "The Demon" the crew answers a distress call from a space station anchored at the edge of a black hole and discovers a new alien race that doesn't want them to interfere. ( )

This is the first of the rebranded, trade paperback collections of the S.C.E. series, collecting the first eight eBooks following the da Vinci's return to space after the Galvan VI disaster. As always (am I possibly biased?), the series provided cracking adventures, intriguing dilemmas, and solid character work. My favorite from this volume is The Demon by Loren L. Coleman and Randall N. Bills, the intense story of a journey deep into a black hole, almost to its event horizon. What struck me most, reading these all at once for the first time, is the (welcome) increased focus on Soloman in this volume-- Ishtar Rising is all about him, of course, but Buying Time and Collective Hindsight also contain some very good moments for my favorite Bynar, who seems to fall by the wayside a little more often than one might like.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"Having recovered from the catastrophic events of Wildfire, the Starfleet Corps of Engineers team on the U.S.S. da Vinci meets its new second officer: Mor glasch Tev, an arrogant Tellarite who's the best there is - and he knows it." "Even as Captain Gold and Commander Gomez get used to their acerbic new officer, the S.C.E. team faces crises in its own solar system. A strange vessel appears in the middle of San Francisco that the S.C.E. must deal with - aided by engineers extraordinaire Montgomery Scott and Miles O'Brien. Then they have to help the Venus terraforming team - a mission that brings Bynar computer expert Soloman to a difficult crossroads." "That's only the beginning of the challenges for the Corps as it faced ?a Ferengi with a time machine, a prison colony in a black hole - and a mission from the Dominion War that comes back to haunt the da Vinci crew in more ways than one."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
