    1. An unholy alliance This is the 8th novel in the Star Trek New Frontier book seriesSS TIMEThe mission of mercy of the USS Excalibur in the space sector 221 G continues Since the fall of the Thallonian Empire, the sector has been like an open party for the Redeemers in their zealot forced conversion of planets to the faith of Xant, their god.Even when the Thallonian Empire was at its best point, they tried to avoid to make conflicts with the Redeemers, since those have a mighty fleet of cruisers.H [...]

    2. another good one from peter david, this should be on tv, its that good of course i no doubt will continue with this range

    3. A lot with the Redeemers, and another seemingly insurmountable baddie in the form of a dark nebulae thing.The Redeemers is an example of PAD being too clever by far, I think YES, they make sense and are like, there s a narrative rightness about them, but they re not very interesting to read I always find myself either rolling my eyes or gritting my teeth.The stuff with Si Cwan s sister Mackenzie s offspring is decently interesting, but the end of the book is seven shades of frustrating I love l [...]

    4. Dark Allies is another great book in the Star Trek New Frontier series I ve mentioned this is my favorite series in the Star Trek novelverse and it s up there with my favorite series of books all round The books are funny, adventurous, entertaining, moving, serious, and ridiculous all in one The premise of the books is the U.S.S Excalibur, led by eccentric military genius Mackenzie Calhoun, and populated by a band of misfits has been sent into the former Thallonian Empire on a mission of peace A [...]

    5. New Frontier book 8 Dark Allies which is actually the 11th chapter of the series by my count is the sort of book I was hoping The Quiet Place would turn out to be with the action and soap opera finely balanced and with resolutions that help set the stage for future interactions Kallinda and Xyon s entrance into the community of the USS Excalibur throws everyone for a loop Si Kwan takes an instant dislike to Xyon, feeling that an intergalactic rogue even if he is the Captain s son is not good eno [...]

    6. The Redeemers are a slightly obsessed race They worship a god called Xant and go around their corner of the galaxy converting planets to their cause Those who are not converted are destroyed But today, they have a problem.A large black terror known simply as The Black Mass is heading toward their homeworld Si Cwan has seen it before and watched it take out a planet and a sun when he was a boy After it feeds, it sleeps for a variable amount of time before it comes out to feed again.The Overlord o [...]

    7. Furthering the introduction of some very important characters who join on for lack of a better term with the USS Excalibur s crew, book eight in Peter David s New Frontier series has a bit of a hard time in its telling it gets awkward in places , but has an absolutely unfair cliffhanger ending that ll leave you waiting for .As always, it s the slight humour blended with the sharp characterizations that make the series worth reading The inclusion of Si Cwan s sister and Calhoun s son serve as str [...]

    8. Peter David was starting to lose control of this series as too many weak story threads and PAD s need to have everyone be funny overpower the story.The Redeemers are unpleasant and evil, but interesting, but the soap opera aspects and a weak ending hurt this book.I think I only lasted another book or two before PAD drove me away.Shame, as it s a great idea and full of cool characters, but needed an editor that would make PAD tone it down.

    9. You re not fine You look like an elephant sat on your face Things with the redeemers boil to a head in typical style, and nobody can deny that the characters are so alive that it s hard to imagine them sitting quietly in the pages of a book Cwan s combat is powerful, Calhoun s right hook is true and we finally get an insight into the Vulcan birthing process.

    10. As with all the previous New Frontiers, I loved this one The characters are lovable, the dialogue witty, the action fast paced I think if there d been an adaptation of this series after Voyager, it might ve saved Star Trek from falling into obscurity for several years.

    11. Not my favorite one in terms of overall story cohesion, the plot jumped around a lot with the addition of two characters that were unnecessary with an already expanding cast It was just too much for one small novel Glimmers of what I love about this series were present so I will keep reading.
