Star Trek is an important part of my life, needless to say, I read each book with an open mind as some are good and some are not. This book is well written, engaging and vivid in its imagery.

This is a fun novel dealing with Captain Kirk and others after the Five Year Mission is completed. The Enterprise is in spacedock being refitted, Kirk is now an Admiral, in charge of the Enterprise refit. But that is not what the story is really about.

The most memorable character in this novel is a Klingon scientist, working in the Federation on an exchange program, a chap by the name of G'Dath. G'Dath has invented something with great military potential, the Klingons are suspicious of Dr. G'Dath, and G'Dath himself has somewhat divided loyalties--he is a Klingon, but he likes living on Earth in a free society, even if Earthmen, not without reason (given the Klingon Empire's nature at this point in time) are prejudiced against Dr. G'Dath.

The conflict in the story is interesting, as is Dr. G'Dath. This novel gives us an interesting look at 23d Century society on Earth in the Star Trek universe. The ending was a cop-out in my opinion. (VERY MINOR SPOILER--CAUTION)) because science, once discovered, cannot be suppressed. More would be telling.

I can't say enough about how bad this entire series was. The writing is tortuous in minutiae, the characters ARE NOT themselves... it just hurts my head how bad this series was. That being said, this particular book was the least bad out of the whole series, because of the exploration of how a Klingon would adjust to living on Earth. But aside from that ONE aspect... just don't bother. Totally not worth it. I'm giving these books away to charity to take the tax writeoff, that's all they're worth to me.

Eighteen months after the end of the Enterprise's five year mission, and following the events of THE LOST YEARS this novel finds Kirk still at his temporary assignment in the Admiralty, a position that he is beginning to suspect is not so temporary after all. Kirk has married Lori Ciana (see THE LOST YEARS and STAR TREK:TMP) who is also coming to realize that she has been manipulated by Admiral Nogura. The couple's dissatisfaction with their professional lives has taken a toll on their personal lives as well. Kevin Riley is still working as Kirk's assistant but is also having his own problems, both professional and personal. Across the continent a Klingon scientist is dealing with his own problems. G'Dath is held in suspicion by Klingon society, he is not a member of the warrior caste and is interested in scientific research for the sake of knowledge itself, not as a means to wage war more efficiently. He has come to Earth in order to pursue his work only to discover that human society is also suspicious of a peaceful Klingon. The only position he could find was teaching an advanced course for high school students. The novel switches between these different storylines until they all merge for an exciting climax.

For serious Star Trek fans, paticularly those of the original series, this is a must read. The LOST YEARS Saga answers the questions raised by the first motion picture, A FLAG FULL OF STARS focuses on Kirk's activities during this period to the near exclusion of the rest of the crew. It is a well written novel that moves the saga forward. For Kirk fans it is a treat but Spock, McCoy and other fans will be disappointed. Those who are only casual fans of the series should probaby just give this one a miss.

This book is a part of The Lost Years-saga, and although puplished as the third of the four books, chronologically it takes place after the thirdly puplished "Traitor Winds".
"A Flag Full of Stars" doesn't live up to the expectations of "Traitor Winds", wich is, without a doubt, the best of the four.
"A Flag Full of Stars" comes second, though, due to the boringness and not-beliavability of "The Lost Years", and the simple meaninglessness of "Recovery".
The Biggest strenght of "A Flagg Full of Stars" is that it's an unconventional Trek novel.
Taking place mostly on Earth, the novel centeres around original, and more-or-less succesfully constructed characters. We have a story of a Klingon scientist, living on Earth, teaching, and a tale of one of his students.
As so often, the youngsters act at least five years younger than expected, are shallow and underestimated as characters.
The Klingon scientist on the other hand is written extremely well, but even he can't measure up to his pet kitten, who is clearly the best character of the entire spectrum of the characters introduced in this novel.
The setting is exellent, the writing good, characterization decent, but the plot leaves something to be desired for.
It's bases are ridiculously devoid of credibility, introducing a machine that can create energy out of nothing. And most ludicrous is the fact that it's created not in some top secret research lab, but at the inventors home, vithout the inventor even knowing what's being created. Whatever happened to the laws of physics and common sence?
All in all the kitten, the writing, and the use of good characters elevate this book into a decent one, that might have been exellent, if it had had at least a slightly intelligent plot.
A decent read set in the post ST:TOS pre-ST:TMP era.

SPOILERS!!!

This book contains the most egregious retcon that I've ever read in the original ST universe (Ignoring the debacle that was Star Trek:Enterprise) [It concerns the naming of the first space shuttle).

Plot-wise, anyone who didn't see the line "This is Admiral James T Kirk of the space shuttle Enterprise" coming 10 chapters ahead simply hasn't been paying attention.
