CAPTAIN'S LOG, STARDATE 6945.4: We have come upon a planet that is inhabited by a feudal society, based on agriculture, and closed to visitors from space so it can develop without interference. But an automatic probe has discovered a building that could not have been constructed by any of the natives. Starfleet has ordered the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM to carry out a discreet investigation. On my own initiative I have sent down a six-man landing team. It has been twelve hours and there has been no communication. The team's whereabouts cannot be traced.... The men and women of the StarshipEnterpriseTM return in this dazzling volume of ten electrifying adventures set in deep space. Featuring the unforgettable characters created by Gene Roddenberry, each one of these extraordinary tales captures the beauty and courage of the fearless quest into uncharted realms--where others venture only in their boldest dreams....

Most of these shorts were far superior to the longer "good" Trek novels I've read so far. It does serve as a warning to editors from adding stories they wrote to their own anthology. Their story was by far the weakest of the bunch. ( )

Still a great early book on the Star Trek phenomenon in that long, dark time between the series ending and the movie and more Star Trek. There were years when there was *nothing* but the written word and conventions and more written words, and this book is one of those examples. It exists when the space shuttle Enterprise was rolled out onto the tarmak and the impact it had on the cast and crew when they saw it and realized that they themselves had created something that led to its name. And humans would once again continue going to the stars.

But as for the stories themselves . . . they are not as spontaneous as they were in the first New Voyages volume. Which makes sense given that this book was published afterwards, but the instant joyousness fun, and graciousness is missing here. The stories are almost harder to grasp from their language; several of the authors use the technique of leaving out words or phrases and leaving it for the reader to guess on the next events or a character's motivation. Which works in some instances but is too much used here. The plethora of possible adventures is a bit more limited, too - no chasing off after strange animals on a planet surface, but a bit more sobered events on board the ship. Which all still work, just with that "not first date" feeling. ( )

Fun to read. ( )

The New Voyages is a compilation of fan-written stories, and at times it certainly shows. This group of stories is not as well-written as the original (volume 1) - there are some weird plots and out of character shenanigans that don't really mesh well with the Trek canon. ( )

I once saw an editor for the later published Strange New Worlds express contempt for the New Voyages anthologies. These stories, after all, have a fanzine feel, several in the first volume were first published in fanzines, as you might know seeing the titles mentioned in Star Trek Lives! the book about Trek fandom co-authored by Sondra Marshak. Strange New Worlds in contrast was a "writing contest" for those with less than three published stories, and saw itself as much more professional--they do it, after all for money. The things is, as someone once involved in online Trek fandom, I could tell them that a lot of the authors on their contents pages--the best ones--wrote fanfic, often under a pseudonym online. Almost always, their fanfic was better than what got published. There is a kind of blandness, a reigned in feeling to much professionally published Trek fiction, that wasn't true early on when it was closer to it's fandom roots.

So the merit of the stories in these volumes is that they feel more out of the box and were written with a deep knowledge of the characters that comes from love. With fans, you know they're actually going to get Kirk's middle name and eye-color right. With the first New Voyages, I immediately remembered the stories just from their titles--and with affection. I don't think the second anthology was nearly as strong--more than one story here struck me as more amateurish than fresh. Maybe it's because in the first volume they were culling some of the best of what had hit fanzines. This one included not-that-good poetry ("Soliloquy" made me cringe with its last line), a story in script format, a story attributed to the actress who played Uhura, a slashy story by the co-editors, and one by a NASA scientist that... well, is possibly far too hard science for my tastes. The best stories are the two by Connie Faddis. It was nice to see Chapel get her due in "Snake Pit" and it would be easy to see "Marginal Existence" as a filmed episode. So, no not as good as the first volume, although I found it marginally enjoyable enough for a (generous) three stars. (While I gave the first volume five.) ( )

Surprise!

Spock turned as the transporter effect released them, with some thought of how to hustle the Captain off to bed, not too obviously.
