Star Trek: Seekers 3: Long Shot by David Mack
SCIENCE GONE MAD…Bizarre sensor readings lead the Starfleet scout ship Sagittarius to an alien world where efforts to harness a dangerous and unstable technology have thrown the laws of probability out of balance. Now, events that might have occurred only one time in a trillion are happening constantly—to deadly and dazzling effect.
A PLANET IN PERIL…As disasters and miracles multiply globally at an ever-increasing rate, it’s up to Captain Clark Terrell and his crew to shut down the experiment-gone-wrong before its storm of chaos causes the planet’s destruction. But the odds against their success—and their survival—might be too great to overcome.
The Sagittarius crew is new and unfamiliar. They are more down-to-earth and disrespectful of authority. They have more levity and inappropriate joking during staff meetings – nothing the captains we know would accept. It makes for added humor, if awkward, among the crew.
Long Shot is the third exciting installment in the Seekers series. As an alien planet succumbs to an experiment of cataclysmic proportions, the Sagittarius forgoes the Prime Directive in order to assist the friendly aliens. From the suspenseful scenes of characters on the planet to the tireless work of the scientists and crew aboard the Sagittarius, the events build to a climactic and satisfying finale. I thoroughly enjoyed this latest installment in a fun, new series.
