First Strike (Star Trek, #79; Invasion!, #1)

THE BEGINNING OF THE ULTIMATE STAR TREK SAGA! “Across time and space comes a Fury!”

Long ago, before the days of myth and legend, our worlds belonged to them. Now they want them back….

Captain Kirk is stunned when the Federation receives an urgent plea for help — from the Klingon Empire. A mysterious starship has invaded Klingon space and resisted all their efforts to destroy it. Establishing contact with the stranger’s ship, Kirk discovers that it is only the vanguard of a vast alien fleet obsessed with conquering the Klingons, the Federation, the Romulans, and all who dwell in the space that was once their own.

The Invasion has begun….

It was a weird experience, reading this, because the paperback edition I just spent the last few hours enjoying was published in July 1996. Long, long before ePub or Kindle ebooks, and I’d forgotten the unique brand of OCR error intrinsic to such scans. Took me right back to my pre-ereader days, and the hundreds of books I read that I, or other blind people as like as not, scanned manually page by page into our computers to read.

This is a very worthy title, Kirk’s on form and of course this is the first of a miniseries, which had nonetheless to end its own story so the next generation could take over. This is of course masterfully accomplished. I really wanted a little Trek back in my life, and this served admirably.
