Star Trek Discovery The Way to the Stars

An original novel based on the explosive new TV series Star Trek: Discovery!

Despite being an inexperienced Starfleet cadet, Sylvia Tilly became essential to the U.S.S. Discovery finding its way back home from the Mirror Universe. But how did she find that courage? From where did she get that steel? Who nurtured that spark of brilliance? The Way to the Stars recounts for fans everywhere the untold story of Tilly’s past.

It’s not easy being sixteen, especially when everyone expects great things from Tilly. It’s even harder when her mother and father are Federation luminaries, not to mention pressing her to attend one of the best schools that the Federation has to offer. Tilly wants to achieve great things-even though she hasn’t quite worked out how to do that or what it is she wants to do. But this year, everything will change for Tilly, as she about to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime-an adventure that will take her ever closer to the stars..

A good book that I ultimately did not care for, but I’m not going to hold that against the author. I went in hoping for Star Trek action and adventure but instead got a coming of age story of a 16 year old girl that has inattentive parents. It was a fun story, but ultimate had nothing to do with Trek at all.

    “It was a fun story, but ultimate had nothing to do with Trek at all.”
    Hmmm… kind of like the Discovery series itself; before Captain Pike showed up.

    I would argue that Discovery was pure Trek from it’s first episode, but lost it’s way right after they killed the first captain.

    If by first captain you mean Michelle Yeoh, I can concur a bit.
    I strongly disliked the Klingons.
    I appreciated the spoor drive storyline and thought that it was classy to name the chief engineer Paul Staments after the preeminent fungal scientist, Paul Staments.
    I’ll watch Doug Jones acting any time.
    All that was interesting Sci-Fi; but the only part that had real Star Trek flair, to me, was Anson Mount playing Captain Pike.

    The first version of Captain Philippa Georgiou was amazing and what I want from a captain in Trek. Pike was more of that, and after an entire season of bullshit anti-hero stuff, we finally got back to the idea that the future can be happy.

    I dunno, I kinda liked the concept of the story arc over the first season with Lorca…even if the execution wasn’t the best.

    Klingons were too weird though…glad they backed off on some of that for the second season.

    Come to think of it…too many weird ideas, and not enough really good story telling to sell them.

    Honestly, the only real standout was the Mudd time crystal episode. And it was the only real stand alone episode as well.

    I didn’t think of Harry Mudd; I also enjoyed that episode.

    Aside from a few acting standouts, it was trash from pretty much episode two onwards. The second season in particular was unwatchable. Sweeping musical scores over montage after montage of characters you know nothing about and truly couldn’t give a flying fuck about being all emotive and pensive over the “big event” that’s about to happen in that given episode. 58 freaking minutes of that shit per episode. Punctuated by some too fast to follow battle or meaningless light show bullshit for a minute or two. If having JJ Abrams direct a season of “The Young and the Restless” in… Read more »
