This is by far one of my favorite Star Trek books. I love the iconic characters in situations that they can't just warp away from. It makes an interesting read, except for anything to do with Kirk. But I never like anything to do with Kirk so I didn't really expect to be impressed by any scene with him in it. ( )

An unusual and interesting Star Trek adventure, contrived as it may be, in which Chekov, Scotty and Sulu are sent by a powerful alien to the past of their homelands: Sulu to feudal Japan, Scotty to 18th Century Scotland, and Chekov to WWII Russia. There the travellers are faced with life-or-death conflicts between their allegiance to their homelands, their responsibility and their survival. An unbelievable story made plausible by the writer's skills. ( )

This fast-paced book was a bit confusing as it began in medias res, but once the storyline became clear, it was completely absorbing. It is by far the best "Star Trek" I have ever read. ( )

Book description
    LT. PAVEL CHEKOV AND JOHN C KIRK FACED THE FIRING SQUAD ...

The Nazi SS man smiled into Chekov's face, his jaw jutting outward in a cocky grin. "Do you have any final words." asked the SS man.

Chekov smiled, inwardly pleased at his composure during what were undoubtedly his last moments on earth. "Your Fuhrer is going to kill himself, and your precious Reich is going to stand as a symbol of all that's vile," he said evenly.

The Nazi shoved him against the wall and stepped away. Checkov took his place next to Kirk as the American muttered, "Don't worry."

"No?"

"No," Kirk showed the hint of a smile. "I'm working on a plan."

Chekov looked at the firing squad before them, raising their rifles and taking dead aim.

"I can't wait to hear it ...."

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0671666622, Mass Market Paperback)

A dispute over a planet and its primitive people leads Captain Kirk and a Klingon Commander to pit their ships against each other in battle. But the fight is stopped by a mysterious and powerful alien being named Weyland, who decides to punish three Enterprise™ crewmembers with their own history. He places Sulu in feudal Japan during the period's most important and bloody power struggle, Scotty in 18th century Scotland on the eve of revolt, and Chekov in WWII Russia.

Now, the three time travelers must face overwhelming dangers as they are pulled by conflicting forces: their allegiance to their homelands, their duty to the Federation they serve, and the demands of history.
