I wanted something new. The series has promise though this particular book does not. It does appear that Taking Wing is part 1 of 2 of introducing everybody and part 3 onwards will be the 'true' mission. I can survive slugging through a few of these to see if it pans out. The worst that could happen is I had some light but poor reading for a few weeks. But I pray the future books do not rely so heavily on a Star Trek: Nemesis and b continuity from other books I haven't read.

I haven't read a Trek book since And in regards to a there are a lot of things Star Trek: Basing a mythology for a new series on a horrible piece of garbage is just bad karma. Plus, Star Trek on a whole is many things but it isn't subtle. The writers of these books need to bash every social commentary topic down our throats as if we can't understand subtext and grey matter.

The wild array of aliens on the ship is fine, I guess, but instead of just telling unique stories, these 'characters' are mere representations of race relations and will always have a built in conflict resolved by peace, goodwill, and flowers. I'm not an alien racist but a lot of great science-fiction is about humans interacting with aliens, not the other way around. Aliens from unestablished worlds are something I can't relate to. Vulcans, Klingons, etc I can get behind because I'm used to it. Plus when there are signs of absolute brilliance, like the existence of a Bajoran commander and a Cardassian ensign if you're a Star Trek nerd you'll get it.

Naturally, they become friends! All this frustration aside, Titan, and Taking Wing, is alien enough to be interesting. But this is my first Trek book in 8 years. Titan only has one chance before I abandon it. So far, so good. Sep 28, Dylan rated it liked it. Not bad for a first book in an ongoing series. Glad to see the continuation of what happened to the "real" Trek universe after that last movie Nemesis.

Which, i had to look up a lot, because i didn't like it and haven't seen it since it was in theaters and i refuse to even acknowledge the abrams films. I can't believe i forgot that Data died But it comes up quite a bit in the book, so if you didn't know bef Not bad for a first book in an ongoing series. But it comes up quite a bit in the book, so if you didn't know before Definitely a book for the super Trek fan though.

LOADS of obscure references to all four TV Series and several of the films, and even a bunch of nods to previous novels and story lines from the expanded universe. I made the joke early on that after 3 chapters, i felt like i'd spent just as much time reading the "memory alpha" wiki as i did the book But it felt like it could have plausibly been a big two-episode pilot to a new show The plot and the set up were fairly standard, neither exceptional or disappointing in any way One thing that i loved about the book was the extremely high importance of the diversity of the crew.

This was a breath of fresh air and really felt like "Trek" to me. The small stories and scenes with the ship's crew getting to know one another and getting over their prejudices was fantastic. It's always bugged me that on TV, any given Federation ship was nearly all human with only the occasional "weird" character who was an alien of some sort. Definitely not the case here. And the casual way that sexual orientation was handled as being a non-thing, but still very much being represented was also rather pleasing. That alone makes me really really eager to read more about this crew and their adventures.

Jan 08, Michael rated it did not like it Shelves: I gave up on this one before I got halfway through. Before beginning the book I saw some negative reviews complaining about how PC and diversity-conscious this book was. I brushed them off. Diversity has deliberately been a big component of Trek for a long time. But no, the negative reviews were exactly right. The authors are much more interested in talking about the Titan's incredibly diverse crew than they are in telling the story the book is supposedly about. The species of each crew member is I gave up on this one before I got halfway through.

The species of each crew member is described in excruciating detail, as are the thoughts of each crew member about the species of other crew member, as is the reaction of each crew member to the actions of the other crew members about this crew member's species, and Wasn't there supposed to be a story here? Nope, let's just hang out in the ship's lounge and listen to dozens of interchangeable characters talk about mundane nonsense for page after page after page. There are way, way too many characters, very few of whom seem to have any real connection to the plot.

I mean, insanely, pathologically, way too many characters, to the point where I can't imagine readers are able to remember who's who without keeping notes. I don't understand what the authors were thinking. I'm sure it's difficult to simultaneously tell a story and introduce new characters for an ongoing series. But it seems like the authors deliberately made things hard on themselves.

We had Riker and Troi, why couldn't we have gotten away with another 5 or so senior officers some of whom could have been Trek characters we already know who will be recurring in the series and a handful of "guest stars" for this particular book? Instead, we've got a laundry list of all kinds of random people on the Titan, and there seems to be an absurd level of redundancy in the "guest stars," where several characters all seem to play essentially the same role.

TOOLS OF TITANS — Sample Chapter and a Taste of Things to Come

In the fairly small number of pages so far the book has devoted to the actual plot, we learn that there are six Romulan factions vying for power in the wake of the events of Star Trek: Each of which have their own motivation and goals, and each of which has several characters we interact with. How is the reader supposed to keep track of all this? Dec 26, Sean Kennedy rated it it was ok. I don't know if the cliffhanger is going to be an ongoing part of the story, but as I was already struggling with this first book it may just prove to be annoying.

I wanted to enjoy this more than I did. But I felt a lot of plot and characterisation was cut to make way for authors salivat 2. But I felt a lot of plot and characterisation was cut to make way for authors salivating over different races. A problem with the Star Trek books is that because they don't have to deal with make-up and special effect budgets they tend to go totally over the top. Hence the crew of the Titan is the most diverse in all of Starfleet, and boy are we told it over and over again.

As each new character is introduced we are told in great detail of their race and their appearance, almost to the point of fetishization. Maybe if they had spent less words on the crew's differences the plot could have been resolved in the first book. It also doesn't help that much of the story hinges on the plot of the weakest Trek film - Nemesis.

If you thought that film was a snorefest, the continuation of that plot isn't going to make you feel any better over it. But at least we finally have a gay Starfleet officer. I'm sure that must have the more conservative Trek fans quaking in their boots. Pass the smelling salts! It's rather convenient that he lost his partner to the Borg and seems to be eschewing any thought of romance while everybody else looks to be partnering off.

I'll give the next couple of books in the series a try, and see if it improves.

Dec 01, Martin Milhomme rated it it was amazing Shelves: If they made this into a series, I would watch every week. Sep 14, John Cipolla added it Shelves: Wasn't a bad start. I can see how he is mingling the new crew with his hand picks from Enterprise. It will be exciting to see how they develop. The story was about unification. Jan 05, Derkanus rated it really liked it. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here.

In the sewers beneath the Romulan capital of Ki Baratan, an undercover Federation operative under the assumed name of "Rukath" meets with Ambassador Spock. Rukath tells Spock that the Federation Council and President have decided to endorse his Unification movement, but they need him to return to Earth and report back first.

Spock says his place is on Romulus, and ultimately refuses to return with Rukath. Later, Shinzon attacks and kills the Romulan senate, and in the proceeding riots, Summary: Later, Shinzon attacks and kills the Romulan senate, and in the proceeding riots, Rukath is assaulted by Romulan uhlans and sent to Vikr'l prison, where he is incarcerated and interrogated. Being the most diverse crew in the entire fleet, many special accommodations must be made. Stellar cartographer Melora Pazlar, an Elaysian from the null-gravity, artificial planet of Gemworld, has vertically built, low-gravity quarters; flight controller Aili Lavena is a Pacifican, a species that primarily live under water, and thus has quarters filled with water; chief medical officer Shenti Yisec Eres Ree is a Pahkwa-thanh, a dinosaur-like species who hunt live prey and eat it raw.

Riker is still in need of a first officer, however, so he departs Titan and meets up with the Enterprise E. He still can't convince Geordi LaForge or Worf to take the job, but on his third try, he does convince Christine Vale to take the job, despite her reservations about Commander Troi, his wife, being one of his senior officers. Riker and Vale return to the Titan only to find that Admiral Akaar is coming aboard. Akaar stays on board for the next couple of weeks, ostensibly to check up on the ship and its crew; however, just as they're about to depart, Akaar informs Riker that Titan's first mission will not be one of exploration after all, but that Titan will instead be deployed to Romulus to commence peace negotiations.

Riker still feels that Akaar is holding mission details back, and moments later 3 Klingon ships decloak directly ahead, weapons charged! It turns out they're only there to escort Titan to Romulus, however--but Riker isn't happy about the surprise. The Romulans have fragmented into multiple different factions: Tal'Aura has taken over as praetor, with Tomalak in charge of her defenses; Commander Donatra has control of the military; the Tal Shiar, the Romulan Secret Service, have eyes and ears everywhere, and are also vying for control; and the Remans, vowing never again to be repressed by the Romulans, also want to have an equal say in the upcoming negotiations.

Once the Federation convoy arrives at Romulus they were further escorted by members of Donatra's fleet after reaching the Neutral Zone , they are informed that there will be a preliminary meeting of only a select few of the Romulan factions, primarily praetor Tal'Aura, commander Donatra, and senator Pardek's groups--thereby excluding the Remans and the Tal Shiar before discussions even get under way.

Riker reluctantly agrees to this because he realizes that in their fractured state, the Romulans are hardly capable of sustaining negotiations as it is. The preliminary meeting does not go well; senator Parkdek is absent, with senator Durjik taking his place. He informs everyone that Pardek was found dead with his neck slit, and immediately blames the Federation for the assassination Pardek was actually killed by the Tal Shiar when he voiced his opposition to Tal'Aura as praetor.

The meeting is adjourned when Troi points out that the Remans are going to "scoop out the Romulan's brains and eat them" if they don't get their shit together. Before they beam back to Titan, security officer Ranul Keru takes a sweep of the area and finds that they're all covered in Tal Shiar nanobot listening devices that broadcasted the entire conversation. Another of Akaar's missions while at Romulus was to find and retrieve a Vulcan operative that had gone missing; it turns out Rukath the Romulan, who was thrown in Vikr'l prison earlier on, was actually Tuvok the Vulcan.

With help from a Reman prisoner named Mekrikuk, Tuvok insights a prison riot and manages to escape his cell. Titan detects his biosign and sends down a covert team to extract him, since there is too much interference to transport. The away team flies down in a cloaked ship, wearing cloaked suits similar to the observation suits from Star Trek: However, the Remans, who live in perpetual darkness on their planet, have no problem at all detecting the stealth suits and craft with their non-visual senses. Needless to say, the rescue does not go smoothly.

Still, Ranul manages to find Tuvok, but just as they're about to repair back to the shuttle, a bomb goes off and a third party of Remans make off with Tuvok. Mekrikuk was gravely wounded by the bomb, so Ranul takes him back to Titan. Luckily, Tuvok is now outside the scattering effect of the mineral compounds in the prison and Titan manages to beam him aboard--along with his rescuer, Ambassador Spock. This turns out to be a very bad thing however, because Spock had been negotiating with the Reman leader, Xiomek, when he was beamed aboard.

With Spock's abrupt departure, Xiomek uncloaks his fleet of decommissioned Romulan warbirds and assumes positions around many of the major Romulan cities. Not long after, Tomalak's fleet decloaks and a battle begins. During the battle, a giant chunk of debris from a Reman ship collides with the Titan, causing massive damage and multiple casualties: Ranul Keru is impaled by a chunk of metal and is in critical condition Tuvok takes over as Tactical Officer ; chief engineer Nidani Ledrah is killed and the ship's designer, Xin Ra-Havreii, is forced to take over as acting chief engineer.

As a last ditch effort to cease the hostilities, Riker has a teleconference with Xiomek and Khegh, the Klingon commander, and makes arrangements for Remus to be a protectorate of the Klingon Empire. With the Remans now under the direct protection of the entire Klingon Empire, the Romulans have no choice but to cease their attacks, and decide they better get their shit together before the Klingons set up all kinds of bases on Remus, right next door. After some further talks, a temporary peace seems to be holding tenuously in place.

Spock agrees to meet with the Federation Council and the president, and leaves on one of the other ships in the convoy. Titan is about to resume its originally intended mission of exploration when they get a hail from Donatra. It turns out she was largely absent from the fight because her entire fleet has disappeared; they were cloaked and hiding near a spatial anomaly known as the Great Bloom--a rift in space caused by the explosion of Shinzon's thalaron weapon.

Upon arrival at the Great Bloom, Titan attempts to scan the anomaly, which triggers some sort of reaction that pulls the ship in Sensors indicate that Titan has travelled , light-years across the galaxy, inside one of the Milky Way's satellite galaxies--Neyel territory, a civilization descended from humans that Tuvok and Admiral Akaar pale at the mention of they had encountered them previously while serving aboard the USS Excelsior. This book serves as a direct sequel to Nemesis and does a much better job of it than Death in Winter; I was always interested in what was going on, even in the slower parts, whereas DiW was a slog.

While DiW stated that the Romulan government was in disarray after Shinzon's disastrous praetorship, this book really shows how far reaching the consequences are, and we get to witness each of the different factions interacting directly i. I also particularly liked that the destruction of Shinzon's thalaron weapon created a beautiful, massive spatial anomaly--a permanent memorial to Data. Books, not being limited by a budget, are the perfect outlet to finally show how diverse a Federation crew can be--and I loved it. The authors did a great job of building up an almost entirely new cast of characters, making each of them distinct and interesting, and most of the main crew members got at least one solid scene of character development.

I really wish the Titan books came with an appendix though, because there are so many different characters and so many different races that it's really hard to keep track of them I created my own cheat sheet, but I'd prefer it was actually in the book, like it was in Destiny. I really enjoy the Romulans and Remans as Star Trek villains, and I think this book did a great job expounding on both cultures, which made them feel more like actual races with real goals and motivations instead of just two-dimensional TV bad guys. There was plenty of political intrigue with all the appropriate backstabbing and sabre rattling; we learned that the Remans have heightened senses from living in the dark and can detect cloaked things nearby; we saw the systematic abuse of the Remans in the Romulan jails, showcasing that the Romulans still feel they are the dominant species; and of course there was the obligatory starship battle during the climax.

I liked the "twist" ending that the Klingons declared Remus a Klingon Protectorate, but the Klingons were already there on behalf of the Remans anyway, so it didn't seem like that big of a difference that it immediately made the Romulans cease hostilities. So overall, a great start to the Titan series. It leaves off on a cliffhanger, but luckily I picked up the whole lot at once, so I'll be diving in to the next book right away. Jan 23, Nicky rated it liked it Shelves: Martin Unfortunately, the only review I can offer right now is the German one I wrote for the Austrian Star Trek-newsgroup back in Basically, I find the premise of Titan quite intriguing, I'm cautiously optimistic about the crew, quite a few very interesting and likeable characters mixed with others I don't particularly care about.

The plot suffers a bit because of the concentration on the characters, though When all is said Star Trek: When all is said and done, given that I'm no longer an avid reader of Star Trek-novels, the notion that I truely intend to pick up the next installment of this new series means quite a lot of praise. I hope I won't be disappointed! Buch wirklich zum Einschlafen fand und nach 50 Seiten weglegte. Daher kenne ich zB. Commander Vale nicht, die mir hier rein von diesem Buch her gesehen, recht farblos vorkam. Wenn "Titan" selbst das nicht schafft, dann soll's wohl nicht sein.

Mag kleinlich sein, aber gerade dadurch wird das Privatleben in den Beruf hinein gezogen. Auch diese telepathischen Konversationen fand ich unangebracht. Bisher gab's da ja nur kleine Einblicke. Was ich ehrlich gesagt aber fast seltsam finde, ist die Reaktion einiger Crewmitglieder auf ihre Kollegen. Das geht doch niemanden was an! Auf der anderen Seite dient er dazu, Tuvok auf den Plan zu bringen, der hier nun hoffentlich endlich mal zu dem aberundeten Charakter werden darf, der er 7 Jahre auf der VOY nicht sein durfte.

Zur Geschichte selbst gibt's nicht viel zu sagen. Die Titan wurde immerhin nach Romulus geschickt, um dort zu helfen, Ordnung wieder herzustellen und die verschiedenen Fraktionen an einen Tisch zu bringen. D We are introduced to his crew who is a bigger than normal mixture of species types from across the Federation requiring the Titan to have many different facilities that we have not yet seen on one Starfleet vessel!

D As Taking Wing warps along Riker and co find themselves mixed up in Romulan and Reman politics often involving disruptor fire and assassination! D with a dousing of Klingon thrown in on the top which makes for a very unpredictable story that you are really are not sure how it is going to tie up especially considering how many new crew members are around and who could down with a case of George R R Martin shrapnel!

D Riker fits perfectly into being a Captain and about time you realise as the story goes on! D Admiral Akaar initially butting heads with Riker really ramps the tension up, Troi and Diplomatic officer really suits here, Dr Rees steals the show with mammal jokes and returning Romulans like Donatra and Pardek really set the scene for the Federations return in Romulan space not to mention Spock pops up up to his usual tricks! D This provides excellent scope for crew iterations as well as world building and we see this kicking off throughout the book!

D The humour flows at a cracking pace as well from tales of Rikers immunity to horrific food as the veteran of many a Klingon feast to the comments from less than diplomatic crew members as well! D The Klingon diplomatic meals are hysterical and Vale's handling of the situation is brilliant as is Rikers checking for spillage before answering any hails! D Throughout there are cutting observations and analogies about their societies that really ring brilliants and allow for grandstanding and doing the right choices situations that will have you guessing cheering all the way!

D Taking Wing set things up brillaintly! D Every scene is laced with tid bits and revelations as to what is coming and Easter eggs left right and centre! D This all sets a cracking pace throughout that will keep you up late to find out what happens, brilliant, fast-paced full of adventure, heroics and action packed throughout!: D Crisp High Five make sure you have the sequel! Dec 10, Charles rated it liked it Shelves: While the prose was passable at best and there were a few moments that lagged in the middle, this story was surprisingly interesting.

It strikes a good balance between familiar characters in Trek and new ones, while continuing on in a direction that still seems far more interesting than anything that's happened in the post- Nemesis movies. I've started and stopped several Trek novels in the last few weeks. Most suffer from trying to emulate the format of the show in that they quickly introduce a c While the prose was passable at best and there were a few moments that lagged in the middle, this story was surprisingly interesting. Most suffer from trying to emulate the format of the show in that they quickly introduce a cast and then move on to plot elements.

The trouble is that with TV we need very little establishment compared to written media for characters. We have faces for each of the names. We have memories from episodes. Several characters in this book in many Star Trek books in fact are just names on the page and nothing more. In all the Trek books I've started there is this urgency to introduce us to some of these new "names" with short intro segments before jumping off to the next until we have enough to safely kick off this episode's plot. There were moments in this book where several of these "names" were in conversations and I felt lost without the grounding of one of the franchise heavies being there.

I'd love to see a Trek novel go slower and take further time to bring us characters, not just names.

But this book did endear itself to me eventually. And some characters stood out more than others. The XO, Vale and the dinosaur-like doctor were quite enjoyable. Jun 22, Eric rated it it was ok. It felt like Star Trek, but it was much too slow to start. For the first or so pages, not much happens other than introducing us to all the new characters of which there are too many to keep track of.

Attack on Titan - Wikipedia

I was pleasantly surprised. I like Martin's writing style. I thought he had a bigger vocabulary than most Star Trek writers. The part about the Remans, Romulans, and Klingons preparing for war was really exciting. He introduces a lot of interesting characters too and kind of set things up for the series. I also re I really liked this book. I also really like the ending. It makes me want to read more of this series. Aug 10, Tyler rated it liked it Shelves: Series and a good set-up for the conflict in the Alpha Quadrant following Nemesis. The authors spend a decent amount of time establishing the diverse crew, which was enjoyable world-building.

However, the last chapter, setting up what comes next, had me rolling my eyes, especially because of a character they'd just brought on board. No spoilers, but it truly made me say: Jul 21, Martin rated it really liked it. Titan picks up after Star Trek: Nemesis with Riker being put in charge of his own ship and sent off to sort out the Romulan political situation. It has certain over tones of The Undiscovered Country which is no bad thing. Enjoyable but nothing special.
