My review of Michael A. Martin's Star Trek Online novel The Needs of the Many is now online over at Unreality SF.

Quote:
"Overall The Needs of the Many can sadly only be described as a failed experiment. The idea to tell the build up to the game in a fragmented form by interviews is actually an interesting one, but ironically enough Michael A. Martin failed with it here, while he partly made it work in Beneath the Raptor’s Wing."

Just in time for the release of Star Trek Online: The Needs of the Many I had the opportunity to interview Michael A. Martin about the first STO tie-in, his work on the post finale Enterprise novels and his upcoming return to the Star Trek: Titan series for Unreality-SF.net.

The Needs of the Many isn’t a book about timelines or continuity. Nor does it present a blow-by-blow account of the Undine War that had such a profound effect on the lives of the various interviewees - Jake assumes his 25th Century audience doesn’t need any lessons in basic history. Instead, it’s a collection of slice-of-life accounts that reveals how each of Jake’s interview subjects was tested by the war. It’s a book about the unique sacrifices each person had to make during the conflict. It was this theme of sacrifice that inspired the book’s title.”
