Star Trek Destiny : Gods of Night – The best Star Trek series ever? December 7, 2008

godsofnight Star Trek Destiny is a new trilogy that includes Picard’s Enterprise, Riker’s Titan and Dax’s Aventine as well as the NX-02 Columbia (among others)

It’s an awesome sweep of the Star Trek universe and one that is brilliantly crafted to include all of the characters of the Star Trek Universe from Picard to Paris and everyone in between.

The basics on one side are simple – the Borg are back and this time Assimiliation isn’t their goal. This time they are out to destroy the entire Federation.  Beyond that simple plot mechanism is a story that accessable yet enjoyably complex and layered.

The revelation on the last page of this first book of the Trilogy (no spoilers here) was AMAZING. I did not see that coming.

We’re currently reading book two of this series and it too is awesome so far.  It’s just astounding how one author has been able to have such an incredible grasp of all these characters and make it all so fluid, seemless and totally mesmermizing.

I’ve finished the trilogy. It was very good. I’m excited to read the followups.

you’ll definitely love the ending of the 2nd book then..I think this trilogy should be turned into a Star Trek movie trilogy instead of rehashing the past

Just finished Book I and loved it! Thought the author had a great feel for the Star Trek universe and had the characters nailed.

The only thing I did not completely buy into was Ezri Dax as a starship captain; even taking into account her ascension to the position. But that is only a minor quibble.

Look forward to books II and III!
