Why not strive for that perfect world?
Captain Kirk and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are tasked with rescuing Zefram Cochrane, famed inventor of the warp drive. Caught up in a plot spanning centuries, the space exploration pioneer is the catalyst for an adventure that will reach into the 24th century and bring the two most famous crews of Starfleet history together for the first time!
In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Bruce and Dan discuss the classic Star Trek novel Federation by Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. We talk about Cochrane’s history, the mysterious Mr. Brack, the Optimum Movement and World War III, the two Enterprises brought together, the distant future, the role of the Guardian of Forever, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
This was a truly fun conversation, and one of our best ever. We hope you enjoy our deep dive into this magnificent entry in the Star Trek literary universe!
