a review in German of a twenty-year-old Starfleet Corps of Engineers novella

The German site WarpCore.de has a review from Götz Piesbergen of my 2000 novella Fatal Error, the second story in the Starfleet Corps of Engineers series that ran from 2000-2007, giving it a 10/15. Based on how Google translated the review, they liked my characterization, particularly of 110 (the future Soloman), but found the plot predictable.

One of the things I had fun with in that story was reversing the usual Trek cliché of saving a planet from a world-running computer — I thought it would be fun to have a world-running computer fail, and our heroes have to actually restore it in order to keep the planet from collapsing.

Anyhow, this was only the third Trek story I wrote, and the second published (I had already written Diplomatic Implausibility when I wrote Fatal Error, but it came out half a year after this, and there was also my comic book Perchance to Dream), and it’s fun to see it still getting reviews, even in a foreign language….
