Into the Void" is the second book in the series, but the first four books are somewhat short and often sold as a set, and the main plot does encompass the first three books, so that makes sense. If you continue the series, you will find all the characters get their own emphasis from time to time, and serves to flesh out the character and activities of characters who may only have brief appearances in some of the books. Peter David is, without question, the best author of Star Trek books that there is. His "New Frontier" series is a delight to read, with excellent plot, characterization, humor, and competent writing.

New Frontier was the first Star Trek tie-in fiction property not to be based on a television series. The series was created by John J. Ordover. The novels explore life aboard the Excalibur, commanded by Capt.

I'm upset I was "tricked" into purchasing this book. It is not #2 in the series. The first 4 mini-books were combined into Start Trek New Frontiers: New Frontiers, so I bought the "second" book thinking I was getting the second in the series, but I got #2 in the 4-part series. Stupid publishers. They owe me $9.

I liked it.

This was a great new series for Star Trek, and one of the first to break away from TOS or TNG novels. Peter David created a new captain, and not an Earthman. He wove interesting characters of his own creation into a mixture including fringe characters from the TV series. The stories are interesting and often humorous.

"Into the Void" is the second book in the series, but the first four books are somewhat short and often sold as a set, and the main plot does encompass the first three books, so that makes sense. If you continue the series, you will find all the characters get their own emphasis from time to time, and serves to flesh out the character and activities of characters who may only have brief appearances in some of the books.

I very much enjoyed this series, and can recommend it to sci-fi and Trek fans.

Peter David is, without question, the best author of Star Trek books that there is. His "New Frontier" series is a delight to read, with excellent plot, characterization, humor, and competent writing.
That being said, (and as I said about the first book of this series) this book wasn't really one of his better efforts. Granted, his "off day" is better than most writers' best, but still...
We're two books into the series, and still, it feels like we're just setting the table. I'd really like to have seen more happening by now. And again, we end on a cliffhanger, something that I really hate. (Honest, I promise I'll buy the next book without a cliffhanger ending if the writing is good, and if it isn't, the cliffhanger isn't going to help, because I won't CARE what happens next.)
Also, and this is just a personal preference, but I've always HATED the character of Shelby, so I could have really been much happier if she wasn't involved, but at least she's mostly being used for contrast between the "cowboy" Captain Calhoun and her own straightlaced, annoying self. I hope David doesn't start working at making her TOO sympathetic a character; I really DON'T want to start liking her.
Definitely worth reading, but there's still plenty of room for improvement. Hopefully, things will start picking up in the next couple of books.

The second book in a series of four introductory novels within the "New Frontier" series is both character and action-packed, introducing the readers to the Excalibur crew left untouched in the first volume.

Excalibur has launched on her mission to Sector 221-G, and her commanders are hard at work sorting out personnel issues ranging from stowaways to the helmsman. But when a refugee transport loses power, it's Excalibur's job to save the ship -- and the people aboard.

"New Frontier", the first Star Trek series to be centered around non-canon characters, is, in my humble opinion, some of the best Trek fiction on the market. The characters, plots, and characters are all stunningly executed by one of Trek's best authors.

8.5/10

Despite the annoying publishing tactic of splitting one novel into four parts, the new series is a must read for Trek junkies. Without the televised framework of other Trek novels, you truly get the feeling that this series can go "boldly where no other ship has gone." The characters feel like old friends, with the potential of future conflict, love, and adventure. Let's hope the series continues - in full-size novels
  • Cheber
This series doesn't quite make a "1" rating (it's so bad it's good). Still, I stand in awe of it, because it is just plain awful. Would-be writers and editors can have a field day. Groan, as you correct the spelling and grammar. Yawn, as you eliminate redundancies, thus cutting the verbiage by about two-thirds. Grimace, as you wonder how the author could have missed so many opportunities. Evince no surprise as your pet goat refuses to eat it. Sigh with relief as you tune the tube to the more literate adventures of Hercules and Xena. Otherwise, have a nice day
The second book in series follows straight on from where book one left off. This is great book for many reasons, it introduces an old enemy for Si Cwan as well as giving us information on his missing sister, and the interaction between Kebron and Cwan is absolutley great. This book has all the ingrediants for a perfect Star Trek story, action, humor and intrigue but it still feels that the story still hasn't kicked off yet.
