My favourite Howard Weinstein "Star Trek" novel - a combination of his usual excellent handling of the regular cast AND a plot that acts as both an inspiration to the film story behind "The Voyager Home", while being an interesting and fascinating story in its own right. There's also a nice explanation behind Chekov's promotion to First Officer of the USS Reliant, as seen in "The Wrath of Khan".

Deep Domain

A routine diplomatic visit to the water-world of Akkalla becomes a nightmarish search for a missing Spock and Chekov, a search that plunges Admiral Kirk headlong into a corrupt government's desperate struggle to retain power.

For both A Federation Science outpost and Akkalla's valiant freedom fighters have begun uncovering the ancient secrets hidden beneath her tranquil oceans. Secrets whose exposure may even mean civil war for the people of Akkalla -- and death for the crew of the Starship Enterprise™.

  • Good story I think. Whether it was really going to be Star Trek III or not. Moves along well and keeps your interest.

  • There are a few quibbles that I have with this book, most notably that it's difficult to place it on the Star Trek timeline. The intro by the author says that it is a story that arose out of the same brainstorming sessions that produced the movie "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home", which would suggest a similar time-frame. But that concept clearly doesn't work, as the events in the second and particularly the third Star Trek movies have obviously not happened (notably, the death and return of Spock and the destruction of the Enterprise). Thus, given those facts and a few hints toward the end of the book, it seems likely that it takes place between movie #1 (Star Trek: The Motion Picture") and movie #2 (Star Trek: The Wrath Of Khan"). It would have helped if that had been made a little clearer a little earlier, but truly, this is a minor quibble.
    The problem is, the book itself isn't really good enough to cause one to be willing to overlook minor quibbles. It isn't terrible; the writing is fairly good, the characters recognizable as themselves, the dialogue plausible, the minor characters from the Enterprise and the missing science team interesting enough. But the characters that the Enterprise crew must interact with range from vanilla personalities with no real spark to stock villains with no real spark. And the plot itself, while not without promise, never fulfills that promise. There was never really any sense of drama, never any sense of compelling interest. It was, quite honestly, mediocre.
    If you're a Trek fan with a real need for a fix, there's no reason not to read this one; it's a perfectly acceptable read. But if you aren't desperate for a Trek story, there's no particularly driving reason TO read it, either.

  • There is no doubt that Weinstein is a capable author; several of his other Trek books have been truly enjoyable. Deep Domain, however, suffers from several flaws, which are only occasionally overcome.
    First, there is the tendency toward preaching Weinstein's own eco-agenda. When an author adds a preface encouraging readers to send money to Greenpeace, red flags should always go up. In the event, the politicking is not as prevalent as feared, but it surfaces periodically and distracts greatly. (It is hard to focus on the page when one's eyes are rolling.)
    Second, Weinstein falls into some common pitfalls of Trek writers. A: his Chekov's personality bears almost no resemblance to the original's (has there ever been a decent portrayal of Chekov??). B: he expects readers to care about his creations (e.g., Lt. Mabry) as much as we care about the "true" Trek characters. That's just not going to happen, folks. Third, the ending is completely unconvincing, as other reviewers have noted. Putting aside that Generations showed us that Kirk actually left Starfleet before going to the Academy (there's no way Weinstein could have known that), Kirk's decision to leave the Enterprise is completely forced, as is Spock's decision to also go to the academy. And news of Chekov's impending transfer to the Reliant - a chance for a true, emotional moment - also falls flat.
    That being said, Deep Domain was, at times, diverting if never gripping. I suppose it is unfair to expect a Trek novel to be anything other than mindless entertainment, a distraction. Deep Domain was never painful to read, just never exciting.

  • DEEP DOMAIN takes place on Akkalla, a planet that is over 90% ocean that has entered into a trade agreement with a neighboring world, one that commits Akkalla to the ravaging of it's marine life in exchange for an energy source. Not everyone on Akkalla is convinced that this is a wise arrangement though and an opposition movement has formed. As the Enterprise crew soon discovers the Akkallan government is determined to silence the opposition at all costs. Spock and Checkov find themselves caught between the two factions and in grave danger. In the end though, the Enterprise crew manage to sort out the various problems, rescue the missing crew members and restore peace to all concerned.

    This volume was written about the same time as STAR TREK IV and shares the same ecological theme as that film. DEEP DOMAIN has some good moments, some of the plot twists will probably take the reader by surprise but, for the most part, it is a fairly predictable tie-in novel. The author has focused much of the action on new characters, a couple of which are interesting but most are just cardboard figures used to move the story along. Also the regular Enterprise crew are not handled particularly well, Sulu and Chekhov in particular are not rendered particularly well.

    If this is all that is available it will do, but there are much better choices in the tie-in series.

  • I believe this was Weinstein's first foray in Trek novel writing. He had previosuly written an episode of the Trek animated series. The problem with this book is that while it is a very good story, it takes a while to build up any interest in it with some very plodding prose that does pick up in pace as it goes along. The problem is that the pace gets too fast that one is left with a very quickly resolved ending. It almost seems like an episode of The Next Generation series. Give us some buildup and then finish it fast to hit the right page count. And the tacked on ending of Kirk and company parting ways seems so contrieved.

  • This is probably one of the worst Star Trek Novels that I have ever read. First, it got off to a slow start, now that's ok but if it is gonna start slow, it should be longer than 275 pages. Second, nothing much happened, well not as much as most authors put in THEIR novels, and the worst part was the way in which Kirk decided to give up the Enterprise and start teaching? Any good Trek fan knows that AIN"T GONNA HAPPEN! And, the way in which Kirk loses the Enterprise is already a movie anyway. And it's a good movie too. I don't reccommend this book. I'm sorry, but I just didn't like the end, or the way it was written. Good day.
