“I may be captain by rank… but I never wanted to be anything else but an engineer.”

I had been a Star Trek fan for as long as I can remember, the first time I was able to  switched over the TV and chose want I wanted for myself.
    But as watched the adventures the crew of Starship Enterprise following them from star to star, from world to world and beyond the final frontier and to the next generation,
It became clear that I didn’t imagine myself  to be the captain of the ship or even first officer, but deep with in the engine room taking on the role as the endless resourceful chief engineer.
And the books on my book shelves reflect this, beginning with Mr Scott guide to the Enterprise and ending with the autobiography the great man James Doohan who brought Starfleet’s legendary miracle worker to life.
So now  in the next few blog posts I will be reviewing three story featuring Montgomery Scott as the main lead, one which I know people have seen on Tv and two only live in the world of book.

The first being
    Prime Directive – A story set just after the end of the original five year mission in which Starfleet’s most sacred commandment has been violated. Its most honored captain is in disgrace, its most celebrated starship in pieces, and the crew of that ship scattered among the thousand worlds of the Federation.

The second
    Relics – A story in which Enterprise discovers a ship that crashed on a Dyson sphere more than seventy-five years prior with a single survivor suspended in the transporter buffer

The Third
    Crossover – A story in which continuing the mission he began in “Unification,” Starfleet Ambassador Spock endeavors to impart the logic of the Vulcan way to a small band of Romulans eager to unite the Romulan Empire and the planet Vulcan. But unbeknownst to them, a Romulan spy has joined the ranks disguised as a Unification sympathizer. Deceived by this traitor, Spock and his students are taken hostage
