About a year ago I wrote a
short piece about the Star Trek Seekers series. Back then I was pretty
disappointed by how contrived most of the plot ended up being. Last Friday I
finished the third book of the series - Long Shot - which takes place a
couple of months after the events of book 2.
Perhaps it’s just the writing style of David Mack but I really enjoyed this one
quite a bit again. The crew of the Sagittarius detects a weird dark energy
phenomenon on a nearby planet and warps there to investigate just to end up more
or less inside the event-horizon of the improbability drive from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the
Galaxy. Morphy’s Law is in full effect here.
