📚 The Weight of Worlds by Greg Cox

28/2023 – ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kirk and Spock travel to another universe as the Enterprise crew try to counter an invasion by aliens on a religious crusade. The alien’s religion didn’t really make sense to me, their gravity-controlling weapons seemed to work mostly as required by the plot, and Cox’s referential style is as present as ever. (I feel like I harp on this, mentioning it in every review of one of his books, but it really stands out every time. He’s not a bad writer at all, he just has this stylistic quirk that likely doesn’t stick out nearly as much to some people as much as it does to me.) Not a bad adventure, but not top-tier, either.

📚 22/2021: Foul Deeds Will Rise by Greg Cox ⭐️⭐️⭐️ #startrek 🖖

Aside from Cox’s tendency to get a little too cute with references, this was one of the better moments of picking up a dropped thread; in this case, Leonore Karidian, now released from psychiatric treatment.

Book fourteen of 2019: Assignment: Eternity, by Greg Cox. ⭐️⭐️ 📚

An average Trek romp, marred by the author trying too hard to drop “clever” references to other Trek and pop culture events, and (worse) using a PNW indigenous people’s name for the name of a planet (Duwamish).
