Orion's Hounds

Orion's Hounds Review

As the "U.S.S. Titan" ventures beyond the outermost reaches of known space, the telepaths in her crew -- including Diplomatic Officer Deanna Troi -- are overwhelmed by an alien cryof distress, leading the ship to the scene of a shocking act of carnage: a civilization of interstellar "whalers" preying upon and exploiting a familiar species of sentient spaceborne giants. Appalled but reluctant to rush to judgment, Captain William Riker and his crew investigate, discovering a cosmic spawning ground in a region of active star formation -- the ecosystem for a bewildering array of diverse but similarly vast life-forms. While attempting to negotiate an end to the victimization of these creatures, Riker's crew inadvertently grants them the means to defeat their hunters' purpose...only to learn that things are not exactly as they seem.

    When the 2009 Star Trek movie released, the Onion website made a parody news cast, stating that Trek fans hated the movie because it wasn't boring enough. Well, this is the kind of boring Trek that th...

    I admire Christopher L. Bennett for being the first to take the reins in this series from Martin and Mangels, whose interesting and rather shaky start made me quite curious as to how it would proceed....

  • Zachary

    I enjoyed this, though less than the first 2 Titan novels. Bennett was clearly horny as hell while writing this, and scarcely a chapter went by where he didn’t seem to shoehorn in some reference to ...
