#3 Long Shot
SCIENCE GONE MAD
Bizarre sensor readings lead the Starfleet scout ship Sagittarius to an alien world where efforts to harness a dangerous and unstable technology have thrown the laws of probability out of balance. Now, events that might have occurred only one time in a trillion are happening constantly — to deadly and dazzling effect.
A PLANET IN PERIL
As disasters and miracles multiply globally at an ever-increasing rate, it’s up to Captain Clark Terrell and his crew to shut down the experiment-gone-wrong before its storm of chaos causes the planet’s destruction. But the odds against their success — and their survival — might be too great to overcome.
AN ALL-NEW ADVENTURE FROM
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR
“delightfully fun and interesting”
“This is an incredibly fun book. No question about it, Long Shot is my favorite book in either the Seekers or Vanguard series. It takes everything that makes Star Trek so great and distills it into a little over 300 pages. A diverse crew, a scientific puzzle, a race against time, keen insights into humanity. This book really does have it all.”
“Long Shot slots right in with the classic Star Trek episodes of yesteryear, all while bringing slick modernity to the storytelling.”
"Mack doesn’t neglect the characterisation of either the regulars or the aliens that they’re meeting. We get a clear idea of the planetary society, and there are some very nice additions to our knowledge of the crew; Mack has always been good at providing his characters with credible reactions in the face of danger and there’s one section towards the end of this that rings very true. There’s quite a bit of black humour, and a couple of laugh aloud moments."
"Verdict: Another terrific addition to the Taurus Reach chronicles. 8/10"
