Star Trek Movie Tie-In, by Alan Dean Foster
Based on my favorite movie of the year, the vengeful Romulan Nero has traveled back in time to the early years of Kirk and Spock. Nero is determined to destroy everything dear to Spock. In changing the past, Nero has created an alternate reality. One where destinies have yet to be fulfilled. Can Kirk and Spock, two complete opposites, work together to save their captain, the Enterprise, and the entire Federation?
Written from the original screenplay, the Star Trek novel only improves upon the original story. Giving more depth into the story and characters, giving more explanations, and additional scenes, Foster has written one of the best tie-in novels that I’ve ever read. The novel retains all of the suspense, drama, and comedy. It’s a wonderful story of revenge and destiny. As with the film, one doesn’t need to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy this science fiction success. If you enjoyed the film, love reading, and can’t wait for the future DVD release, go pick up this fantastic novelization.
