I have to give L.A. Graf a big thumbs up for creating a wonderful story that would have made a great episode. What happened during those 3 days when they got thrown into a time warp after events from Psi 2000. There is more time travel, encounters with Gorn, future and past versions of the crew. I loved when Uhura got a chance to be in command. My one beef, was the scene in the observation lounge between Kirk and Spock. I felt there should have been more interaction between them. It was too clin [...]
“Past Prologue” by L.A. Graf is the third and final book in “The Janus Gate” trilogy, a series of novels set during the Star Trek Original Series. Kirk is stranded in his past and is trying to find his younger self who is missing in the chaos of a civil war. He is helped by his own father but neither of them realises that 14 year old Kirk is now in the future. In this future Sulu and Chekov have to work with older versions of themselves to try and find a way to reactivate the Janus Gate [...]
Last of the trilogy where all ends meet. Thrilling but with a high psychology factor - Kirk reviewing the relation with his father with different (much older) eyes. Nice to read, luckily there is ample attention to what is happening with the Enterprise and the rest of the crew. The author manages to get out of the timewarp complications unscathed and at the end leaves a sense of feelgood. Plausible or not, ethically correct or not, it is a Star Trek novel that earns its place in the trilogy and [...]
ok, so I liked the story, but what exactly did the summary on the back of the book (which sounded pretty good too) have to do with the book?? Kirk wasn't sent back to Tarsus IV and Spock never asked Kevin Riley for help. Confusing. Also, they made a big deal on the front of the book about the story focusing on minor characters. The stories that L. A. Graf writes for Star Trek usually give a good size part to Sulu, Chekov, and Uhura, so this was different how?
The 3 books of the trilogy need to be viewed together really. The series improved as it went on with Past prologue being the best of them. On it's own I would give it 3.5 stars. The blurb on the back of the books is not correct bye the way.Some interesting thoughts on time travel and morality of changing timelines etc
The crew of the Enterprise must retrieve Captain Kirk from his past, and return his younger self to his place in time.This was a pretty good conclusion to the trilogy. I thought the first two were better though.Also, the snippet about Kevin Riley on the back cover has nothing to do with this book.
Great conclusion!An excellent finish to the Janus Gate books. Plenty of action and sci-fi possibilities. Good pacing, always held my interest, written well enough to really conjure the original series actors and sets. This may as well be a 3 part televised episode. Hats of to the writer. Let's All Get Rich And Famous.
