Judith Reeves-Stevens (Author). In this book do not expect any of the silliness that polluted the first new STAR TREK movie. Graciously absent are a fat-handed Kirk, a Scotty in the waterworks, and a Keystone-Cops monster-chase sequence. FEDERATION is serious Star Trek and good science fiction.

Worlds in Collision is a repackaging of two other Star Trek stories: Memory Prime, and Prime Directive. I hadn't read these as separate books, so I was delighted to get both full-length books, packaged together, at a very reasonable price. Woo-hoo! These are great Star trek stories, full of intrigue, and rich with the Star Trek personality development I expected. Of the two, I liked Prime Directive the most, but the galaxy is a pretty big place, and I really don't like it when folk, scattered throughout the quadrant, seem to show up at the same place at the same time.

Writers of Star Trek publications were discouraged from creating depictions that varied from the style and details of the franchise, as seen in filmed productions. Previous novels of the 1960s, 70s, and early 80s tend to vary from canon more than later series. Star Trek: The Next Generation - Starfleet Academy.

Of all the experiences shared by Captain Kirk and the crew of the Starship Enterprise™ during their first five-year mission, two were among the most perilous: a journey to the nonphysical realm of Transition where the massive computer known as Memory Prime was situated, and the nightmarish mission to Talin IV, a world poised on the brink of destruction that Kirk was forbidden to save. In the twenty-third century, a hundred years before a sentient artificial life-form would be allowed to earn a Starfleet commission, the Federation considers the use of self-aware artificial intelligences to be little more than slavery, except for the immense computer system of Memory Prime -- the key hub in the Federation's vast network of interstellar library planets. There, the A.I.s known as Pathfinders inhabit Transition -- a virtual world so different from our universe that the A.I.s themselves debate whether or not the physical universe is real. But when an ancient enemy reaches out from the shadows of Vulcan's darkest history and threatens to destroy the Federation, Spock must risk his career, and his life, to enter the Pathfinders' realm. Technologically and politically, Talin IV is little different from late-twentieth century Earth. But as a series of mysterious events pushes that world closer to self-annihilation, the Prime Directive prevents Captain Kirk and his crew from doing anything to prevent it. When the worst appears to happen and Kirk takes desperate action to give the Talin a chance to step back from the nuclear abyss, Talin IV is consumed by radioactive fire. Now, with a world destroyed and the Enterprise dead in space, the careers of Kirk and his crew are over. Disgraced and despised, Kirk has only one chance to redeem himself and his crew: Somehow, he must make his way back to Talin IV and discover what really happened, even if it means proving that a world died because he broke Starfleet's most sacred law.

This is a political novel. It is also an environmental novel. What it is not is a simple Star Trek novel . Most of the books under the Star Trek banner don't go as deep into characters or plot as the books in this volume do; nor do they treat the characters in quite the ways that these books do. I only wish that more recent Star Trek novels where allowed to be as different as these are .
I won't give away the details or characters, because that would negate your reasons for reading this volume, but don't expect a cardboard, empty copy of the TV series.

Let's say you've done the most basic reading on this site and realize that this book consists of two previously published stories, with very tiny font. Are the STORIES worth it? Absolutely.

Prime Directive, in my opinion, is one of the very best Star Trek novels out of the hundreds that have been written. It's incredibly tightly written, well-placed, and seamlessly weaves together 5 different narratives to bring the entire crew together for an astonishing sci-fi climax. Fantastic character moments for every major crewmember of the Enterprise, great humor involving some Orion pirates, nuclear wars- this book has got it all. The ending is one of the most imaginative, science-fictiony climaxes of any Star Trek book, and makes you appreciate the wonder of the universe (or multiverse).

Memory Prime is nowhere near as good, but it's still above average. Frankly, this whole book is worth it for Prime Directive; think of Memory Prime as a bonus. If you haven't read Prime Directive and you can stand the small font, get this book now. (Otherwise, get the regular edition of Prime Directive with bigger font!)

The Signature Editions are very nice trade paper books. The only thing that isn't made too clear until you dig a little deeper (past the introduction) is that these books are compilations of two or three previously published books. In this case, Worlds in Collision is made up of "Memory Prime" and "Prime Directive." The descriptions of the stories on the back cover don't say this. The only place in the book that makes mention of this is the copyright page, listing the original copyright dates for the two books.
I bought the book because I'd read "Prime Directive" shortly after it was out, but I had borrowed it from my sister-in-law, and I wanted a copy for myself. "Memory Prime" is a bonus for me, and I don't know if I will ever read it. They're nice for trade paper, and if you don't have the books in original form it can be a good buy - literally 2 or 3 for the price of one. "Imzadi Forever" is a compilation of "Imzadi" and "Triangle: Imzadi II." "The Q Continum" is made up of 3 TNG books: "Q-Space," "Q-Zone," and "Q-Strike," which make up an interesting trilogy. "Pantheon" is made up of "Reunion" and "The Valiant," and I haven't read either of those.
"Prime Directive" is a good story, with Kirk kicked out of Starfleet (along with everyone except Scotty) for violating the Prime Directive. It's a good story for Classic Trek fans.
There are some extras, which include an introduction, and a section with interviews from the authors. I don't know that these would be enough incentive for me to purchase the book if I owned one or both of the stories.
I would suggest that you purchase "Worlds in Collision" if you're a Classic Trek fan and haven't read either of the books it's made up of. "Prime Directive" is worth the money by itself.

Cheers to Mr. Hockinson for providing a truthful, yet comical, review of this book. Take his advice and save your eyesight, as well as your money. Don't succumb to the urge to fill out your collection by buying books you probably already have in more readable type. Just as Star Trek: The Original Series DVD Collection was sold as two episode discs and now is offered in Season Sets, repackaging stunts are aimed at getting fans to own multiple copies of their favorites. Live Long And Prosper!
