Enterprise - Vonda N. McIntyre A wonderful introduction to the universe of Star Trek: The Original Series. The depth of the characters given by McIntyre was exquisite and the background of reminiscence was beautiful as it gave even greater depth to the individuals and their world. More than anything I loved the tiny mentions sprinkled throughout the book of quirks and aspects of alien-ness, such as Mr Spock becoming lightheaded from the lighter gravity of the Enterprise. Even more was the devotion to give an alien race, and one newly discovered, their own view of the universe and the differences in interaction and language as she did between the crew of the Enterprise and the flyers.
