Book Club: Serpents Among the Ruins

Positively Trek 96: Book Club: Serpents Among the RuinsHarriman’s “In the Pale Moonlight” Episode

The voyages of the Enterprise-B are some of the biggest unknowns in the Star Trek universe. Besides the fateful first voyage at the beginning of Star Trek: Generations, almost nothing is known about the trials and tribulations of the third Federation starship to bear the name Enterprise. What a perfect opportunity for the novels to step in and chronicle one of the many adventures of Captain John Harriman and his crew as they attempt to stop a horrific war with the Romulans before it starts!In this episode of the Positively Trek Book Club, hosts Dan and Bruce discuss the Lost Era novel Serpents Among the Ruins by David R. George III. We talk about the impending war with the Romulans, Harriman’s tumultuous relationship with his father, the rehabilitation of a Starfleet captain, the Tomed Incident, some familiar lit-verse characters, and wrap up with our final thoughts and ratings.
