Good concept bad execution. Could have been funny.

An absolute must-read for all fans of Classic Trek, this cleverly written "autobiography," with well-crafted and detailed allusions to televised plots, will send you racing to re-watch the original series episodes and movies with a newly enhanced understanding. For nitpickers, some of the classic oddities are now neatly explained (love the way the fifth movie is dealt with!)
