Review: Vulcan’s Glory

Vulcan's Glory
Vulcan’s Glory by D.C. Fontana
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was actually one of the better Star Trek novels I’ve read, covering the hitherto unexplored period of Mr. Spock joining the Enterprise crew (under Captain Christopher Pike). It’s well-written and there are a couple of interesting mysteries and some exploration of Spock’s off-duty life. All of this is great, particularly coming from Dorothy Fontana, one of the people responsible for so much in the original series.

The problem I have with the novel is that all of the interesting mysteries are solved or ended a bit too quickly – the ending of the book seems rushed and not planned out very well. A few more chapters, a few more pages, and maybe everything would’ve jelled together better.

Still, I’d recommend this one to any Trekker.
