This novel is #32 in the Pocket Book series of Star Trek novels, and was first published in February 1987. The characters we know from the TV series and films seem to be presented pretty well - no one acting in ways to make the reader groan. The jerk of the week here is a Dr. Jason Crandall who is perhaps the most unbelievable thing in a book that has a rather interesting situation to be resolved. The Enterprise finds itself in a far away galaxy unable to return home and in the midst of what appears to be a never-ending war between two humanoid species. Everywhere the Enterprise looks they find destroyed worlds and then they themselves are attacked.

These books aren't high literature and no one expects that. You read these for a bit of fun and there is enough excitement and twists here to keep things interesting, even though I had a rather intense dislike for the evil Dr. Crandall. This novel would have been a better story if everything concerning Dr. Crandall had been excised. His story arc adds nothing to the book and distracts from the larger story.

I have not read many of these Trek novels, but this one seems OK. I did enjoy this adventure with some old friends. ( )

The USS Enterprise finds herself stranded in a distant galaxy! What could be worse? When the planets of that galaxy are found to be ravaged and lifeless from centuries of war, starships do not communicate with each other and fire upon every ship they encounter, making matters worse. Can the crew of the Enterprise survive long enough to find a way home or will they find death in that distant cold space? ( )

According to even the most conservative estimates, the Milky Way galaxy contains more than on hundred billion stars, and there are at least that many other galaxies beyond our own.
