  • Each time I finish one of these (and this is #12) I say to myself "that was the best one." Peter David does not disappoint. Here's just one sample of his brilliant writing:
    "There was some more sounds of movement, a short cough, more movement that was farther away . ..
    . . . and then nothing.
    They waited.
    More nothing followed the nothing that they had amassed up until that time."
    He uses a familiar device of parallel plot structures in most of these books, but I honestly didn't even realize he was doing it in this one until the very end. The B story was also linked to the A story in a way that I never saw coming. Okay, let's just say the story had a lot of surprises right up into the last 20 pages or so. It's one thing to name your book "Being Human," and then the plot could be about, well, anything. This title was really apropos to the central narrative. One really awesome thing about the New Frontier stories is the way he plants seeds throughout the novels and those grow into larger themes as they take root in later novels. In this novel for example, . . . oh, heck. I don't want to spoil it for you, Gentle Reader. Let me just say that everything you thought you knew about life on the Excalibur is probably wrong, but that's just a simple fact of Being Human.

  • I enjoy the New Frontier series a lot. Peter David combines his own new starship, captain, and crew with fringe characters from some of the TV series, and all of the characters are unique and interesting. You do need to read the series from the beginning, for the most part, or you'll lose the flavor and history of most of the characters.

    The books are written with a lot of action, and a lot of humor. I highly recommend them. In Being Human, was get a bit of a taste from the Original Series episode "Who Mourns for Adonis".

  • Taken place shortly after soft cover 'Gateways #6' and hardcover 'Gateways #7', Being Human begins a new story-arc for both crews of the Excalibur and Trident. While the hardcover Gateways #7 takes prior to this novel, it is not mandatory to keep the story flowing from 'Gateways #6'.
    Being Human primarily examines the character of Mark McHenry and his mysterious past. Previously touched upon in New Frontiers #10, where McHenry was able to stand off 'Q'. Here, author Peter David brings that mystery to the forefront, and classic ST fans will LOVE the explanation. (Hint: Classic TV episode where Kirk encounters the Greek god Apollo). Just how powerful is Mark and where did he get hi `powers'?
    As traditional with many of the New Frontier novels, other subplots and stories are developed within these pages:
    Si Cwan and his sister Kallinda are offered a chance to restart the defunct Thallonian Empire (but nothing is as what it seems as Kallinda believes she has literally met the figure known as 'Death'). This is the secondary story that begins here and will no doubt be the focal point for the next installment.
    Excalibur Security Chief Zak Kebron begins molting his hardened skin exterior. What exactly is Kebron becoming? And his suspicions and manners towards friend McHenry are put to the test as we find out who/what McHenry really is.
    Robin Lefler continues to examine her feelings about Si Cwan and decides to take action. But where does this leave her mother?
    Soleta meets a god and the truth of her heritage possible being revealed?
    McKenzie's adoptive boy, Moke, is given responsibility....to watch over Burgyone's son Xyon...and the comedic troubles that soon take place around the ship.
    The plotline (introduced in Gateways #6) with Trident Science Officer Glaeu, and time-displaced M'ress and Arex continues and Glaeu must take an oath of celibacy.
    Finally the battle of the Excalibur against the Triremes of long ago is quite an action packed scenario to read, and its outcome will definitely change the futures of some long loved characters.
    With all these developments continuing on and shaping up, this is the continuing reason why the New Frontier books are so fun. They are always action packed and pushes the envelope of the ST ethos while picking up/tying-into back stories long forgotten from other ST media.
    And as always a great cliffhanger that keeps waiting for the next installment. What Trek should be today!

  • My hat goes off to Peter David. Being Human turned out to be, in my opinion, one of the best Star Trek: New Frontier novels he's written up to this point. One thing I've always loved about the various post-original-series novels is the way in which they incorporate events and episodes from the Original Series. Being Human does that in spades; in fact, it incorporates one of the more interesting of the early epsisodes. Another great thing about this novel was the humor. More often than not I found myself reading with a smirk on my face, and there were many times I was laughing out loud. Peter David also does a great job of expanding the relationships between crew members while at the same time creating realtionships with a whole new set of crew members from Shelby's Starship Trident. Excellent work and a fun read.

  • Really enjoying re-reading about the background of Mark McHenry the spooky great navigator. I had no idea that he was anything but just an extraordinary human. If you like Star Trek New Frontier, then you will love this one. And an old enemy of the Federation returns from long ago.!!

  • Another Great Peter David novel

  • Peter David delivers again. Draws from Trek history to introduce an old foe in an unexpected place. I have truly enjoyed this series.

  • Another great read from Peter David's Star Trek New Frontier novels! I wish that he'd write more of these books.
