Star Trek: The New Voyages 2 - Sonra Marshak et al


A second collection of Star Trek short stories, though less written by fans than the first collection. There wasn't a third collection, but then the license moved from Bantam to Pocket Books shortly before the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979.

I enjoyed "Snake Pit!" and "The Patient Parasites". I didn't really like "In the Maze", and the gender bending "The Procrustean Petard" would not be published today - though it did make a few good points. Nichelle Nichols epilogue was especially touching, in light of her recent passing.

In comparison to the first New Voyages, I liked this one slightly less - but both still rate 3 stars.
