In the late 21st century, humanity has united after countless years of warfare, and turns toward the stars. But when an alien spacecraft crashlands in the South Pacific bearing visitors from another world, the Vulcans, Earth must decide whether to extend the hand of friendship or the fist of war.

In the distant future, horrible dreams torment Admiral James T. Kirk, dreams prompted by his reading of Strangers from the Sky, a book about that historic first contact. He dreams of an alternate reality where he somehow changed the course of history, and destroyed the Federation before it began.

    " One of my favorite Star Trek books. Kirk and Spock through dreams recover lost memories of the true "first time" Vulcans and humans meet, and the pivotal rolls they played in paving the way for peaceful interactions years later. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Read1000books | 1/19/2014

    " The background info about how the Vulcans first met the Humans was good, but the whole story would have been better without the time-traveling wizard guy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deranged Pegasus | 11/27/2013

    " An incredibly convoluted book and yet excellently done. I could not put this book down. "

    " This was an excellent read from start to finish... I liked the pre-Star Trek feel and the writing was phenomenal. This is an author with a riveting style of storytelling... "

    " In the twenty-first century: United at last after countless years of warfare, humanity turns toward the stars. When an alien spacecraft crashlands in the South Pacific bearing visitors from another world, the Vulcans, Earth must decide whether to extend the hand of friendship, or the fist of war. "

    " I like reading about some of the Star Trek characters we didn't see much of in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robbe | 8/9/2012

    " Ik denk niet dat ik dit boek nog had uitgelezen moest ik dit filmpje, waarin Stephen Fry vertelt over de relatie tussen star Trek en Nietzsche, niet zijn tegengekomen. Het boek zelf deed me niet zo veel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana Babáčková | 7/31/2012

    " First third longer that was needed and the idea is not new, BUT it is always interesting to read how people can react to unknown and how the future could be, although not so far... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Travis | 7/17/2012

    " Bit too grim and serious, for my tastes but some interesting takes on Trek history and a funky bit of time travel as we look at a bit of 'what might have been' and how it would have affected history and the Enterprise crew's efforts to kep things on track. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Gawthrop | 1/25/2012

    " Further evidence that Spock is compassionate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 6/8/2011

    " While I'm no big fan of the plethora of Star Trek novels, a few do manage to stand out and this is one of them. Most of them I can't even get all the way through without dropping it in favor of a newspaper, this one I've read three times. "
