I actually read this book again last december break, in the same room in Florida, listening to the soundtrack all the way, and it brought about the same feelings in me. Even though this book is a novelization of a movie trilogy, there is WAY much more detail and characterization in the book than the movies. There's a lot more accent on relationships between the characters, and we read more on the minor characters too. In a nutshell, its very well done. Sep 12, Stephen Fahrig rated it it was amazing.
Duty, Honor, Redemption by Vonda N. McIntyre
As a reviewer on Amazon noted, Vonda McIntyre's adaptations of these three Star Trek films are of such quality that a newcomer to Star Trek would assume that the movies were based on the books, rather than vice versa. The characters and situations are treated with much greater depth than they were onscreen. Any fan of the original Star Trek series would enjoy this book. Star Trek: Duty, Honor, Redemption.
As always no spoilers. As I've noted before, McIntyre can write. There are some great moments here, but she's a little hamstrung by the constraints of novelizations. These are well done novelizations and stuck to the movies fairly well.
