The Starship Trap

En route to an important diplomatic reception the U.S.S. Enterprise™suddenly is set upon by a Klingon warship. The unprovoked assault, Kirk discovers, is in response to what the Klingon ship's captain claims are recent Federation attacks on several Klingon vessels which have disappeared.

Managing to secure a truce, Captain Kirk reaches the reception only to find out it is not just Klingon ships that are disappearing, but Federation vessels, Romulan Birds of Prey, and ships from almost every known race are vanishing without a trace.

Now, Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise must determine the fate of the missing ships before the entire known galaxy is drawn into a deadly conflict.

This was your typical Trek story, but Gilden's characterizations weren¿t particularly compelling. Mainly told from Kirk¿s perspective, there were several rabbit holes that seemed to go nowhere, in addition to some of Kirk¿s behavior being slightly out of character.The hard science fiction aspect of the Aleph plot device was, at least, interesting. Much more so than the villain¿s fixation on 19th and 20th century European and American classic literature or one of the minor character¿s obsession with the American Old West. C¿mon, Gilden ¿ your ethno-centric roots are showing! For all the aliens and cultures on Star Trek, there is a disproportionate number of stories with references to American or European modern (to the reader) history.
