A good story with a good plot, unfortunately spoiled by inconsistencies, flaws and ridiculous attempts to ‘explain away’ the differences between Discovery’s starships and the long established canon.

I also disliked the portrayal of Saru in this book, I find his on screen character to be vastly better and am disappointed I didnt get to experience it here.

If your a hard core Trekkie like me its worth the listen, but don’t say you weren’t warned.
