From being one of the dreadful examples but neither is it
one of those rare outstanding ones Van Hise demonstrates a good understanding of the characters and their particular styles of dialogue of those rare outstanding ones Van Hise demonstrates a good understanding of the characters and their particular styles of dialogue whenever Kirk Spock and McCoy are speaking you can or Treasures of Darkness less hear the actors voices Scotty Uhura Sulu Chekov and Chapel all play minor roles and are similarly well written I was happy to see Van Hise resist the temptation to render all of Chekov s dialogue in distracting phonetics which some Star Trek authors do instead of trusting their readers to know what the character soundsike
though she did ose points with me again she did ose points with me again doing so with Scotty for some reason There s a nice use of if I m identifying the character correctly the guy who sits at the helm whenever Sulu or Chekov isn t there in Season 2 here called Richardson and identified as the swing shift relief for both Van Hise gives his personality some development and utilises him very cleverly as a significant character in the alternate universe sections of the book Having not seen all of the TOS episodes yet I m not sure to what extent some other major characters were borrowed from one off guest appearances or created specifically for this novel but they were all compelling enough that I m actually hoping a few of them do pop up somewhere along the way in the TV show Characterisation was definitely one of this novel s strengths and while the prose was nothing special it served its purpose well and moved the plot along without becoming bogged down in description even if this resulted in a few phrases being repeated so often as to get oddly jarringThe plot Van Hise claims that the 2009 Star Trek reboot borrowed heavily from this novel and there would seem to be considerable justice in that assertion a Romulan time travel plot creates an alternate continuity wherein Spock is the captain of the Enterprise Kirk is an ensign assigned to him primarily as punishment for an infraction committed at the Academy and Vulcan may or may not have been destroyed by the Romulans Sounds pretty similar Of course there are differences as well the Romulans hijinks in the fourth dimension have wiped out most Terran contributions to the formation of the Federation which is now Vulcan Menopause and the Mind ledeaving most humans with considerably Software (The Body Electric Book 4) lower status than in the main continuity Further Kirk s history is considerably darker suspected of the murder of one of his tutors he s spent time in prison before a torturous stint in a mind reading machine concludes that he has no memories of the night in uestion but most people still believe in his guilt resulting in his assignment to Spock s crew as somethingike supervised probation and the torture he underwent has resulted in an addiction to a mind numbing drug These Internet Marketing Essentials last three plot points promise to be very interesting unfortunately they are badly under used and if you re hoping to find out about who framed Kirk since that s clearly where that was heading you re out ofuck However though there are a few such dangling plot threads and inconsistencies has Vulcan been destroyed by the Romulans or not Spock doesn t seem sure the story moves at a good pace and is very entertaining It would have made a very good episode of TOS which in my opinion is all you should really ask of a spin off novel and of course they or Internet Marketing Revealed less made it into a movie which says aot about the potential of the story itselfVan Hise also gets in a couple of hilarious nods to the danger of wearing a red shirt while in the main continuity everyone seems blissfully unaware of the mortality rate of security personnel the AU characters have apparently developed a certain superstition reuiring you to borrow a friend s blue or gold shirt during your first away mission which is regarded not only as good Email Advertising Crash Course luck but a sensible precaution Fans of John Scalzi s Redshirts will doubtless appreciate the feeling of in jokey humour the novel has at times35 stars if Goodreads allowed half stars Not a great book but aot of fun if you re interested in vintage KS fanfic No spoilersSo to give some context here for a second Killing Time is infamous in the Star Trek fandom as the official Star Trek novel that got published then recalled censored and re published when the publishers found out that it was written by This book was actually one of the best Star Trek books I have read so far About 20 or so The beginning was kind of corny before the alternate universe takes over but from then on it s a blast There s enough action to keep the story moving with enough character interaction to keep me extremely happyI enjoy a good Spo. Lity Now Kirk is an embittered young ensign and Spock is a beseiged Starship commander Lured into a Romulan trap Captain Spock and En.
review Ë eBook or Kindle ePUB Ò Della Van HiseCkKirk FRIENDSHIP story and that s what this brought Although some might argue this could be viewed as slash meaning homosexuality I don t view it that way The book was that of the bond of brothers through the screw ups of Romulans It was immensely personal and sweet between Kirk and Spock getting to know each other and feeling uncomfortable meaning to much to a strangerI can understand why Roddenberry banned this book because it doesn t show Kirk as the hero he is but I ike a flawed hero and all too often we don t get to see that flawed side of Kirk No character can be pristine and survive the public and this proves itIf you can get your hands on a copy DO IT It was the best decision in a Star Trek book I ve made thus far The review at the top that has censored in the title convinced me to buy it Please do you won t be disappointed Posted from my account These notes were made in 1988 Now why does Ms Van Hise s name sound so gosh darn familiar I have the feeling that she has written far inflammatory stuff than this mild and rather interesting tale of time travelalternate universe Because of time tampering by the Romulans the crew of the Enterprise find themselves haunted by dreams shades of Strangers From the Sky and then slip into an entirely different universe where Spock commands the ship and Kirk is a owly and embittered ensign Introduction of the first KS element Kirk out of power under the command of Spock O implacable females However even in this strange universe the two of them recognize each other in some strange way and confirm the real story through mindlink Introduction of the second KS element
Telepathy As Symbol Of Sexualas symbol of sexual Together they restore the original version of history and fade unselfishly into oblivion mindlinked of course so that their alternate selves and the universe generally may continue to exist Third KS element cosmological importance of KS relationship Then of course there is the constant dwelling upon the emotional state of the two men and the introduction of the ady Romulan commander who seems to hold some great fascination for the KS crowd vid Marshak and Culbreath The time shift brings pon farr on for Spock rather gratuitously I thought and he or rather his alternate self actually sleeps with the ady commander
To Get Rid Of Itget rid of it are two new characters Richardson who fills a sort of buddy role for Kirk the ensign in exile and S Parva a telepathic canine girl whose chief functions in the book seem to be 1 to illustrate Richardson s Romeo tendencies incidentally Richardson calls Kirk Juliet and to push Spock telepathically into dealing with his pon farr Did you A Guide to A Long Way Gone By Ishmael Beah like it miss Oh come on give me a break of course Iiked it there was some bad het nonsense in here that i didn t Get Social - The Ultimate Online Marketing Guide For Social Good Companies like very much but overall iiked it a Natural Stone in the Built Environment lot Killing Time has aot going for it the choice to use temporal manipulation
offers so much to the author but alas also means youso much to the author but alas also means you to find a way to reverse everything and in that respect it can be a disaster waiting to happen Events begin small as those on board the Enterprise experience strange dreams which get vivid until the dreams become the reality and Internet Marketing for Smart People life aboard Enterprise is the dream Kirk is back as a reluctant Ensign and serving aboard an Alliance starship under the command of Captain Spock When Spock is ordered to prepare for an invasion of Romulan space doubts are raised over the validity of the orders further investigations indicates a subtle but growing in balance in the minds of many of the crew and soon it s clear that the whole galaxies population could be affected On the Romulan side of the border the Praetor isaying down plans to make use of Spock in an effort to change the course of the Empire but failure could mean a galactic war but as the madness spreads the worlds of the galaxy may not be around to suffer these conseuencesKilling Time was an entertaining story I Spanked in her Messy Diaper (An ABDL Tale) like the call backs to the original series episodes and time manipulation is never boring It was also interesting to see humanity serving aboard Starships belonging to the Vulcaned Alliance and the idea that maybe humans were not that critical in creating a galactic superpower Jerry Richardson and S Parva were also welcome additions to the crew of the EnterpriseShiKahr This had been one of my favorites since I m a big fan of alternate universes but okay this is way overwrought WAY overwrought I enjoy a good drama fest but wow WAY overwrought Did I mention it s overwrought It s overwrought And why didn t I ever see the glaring homoerotic subtext before I have ost my innocence. Sign Kirk must free themselves from both their captors and their own altered selvesbefore the galaxy hurtles toward total destruction.
