The Kobayashi Maru (Star Trek #47)

0671658174-01-_sx450_sy635_sclzzzzzzz_The Kobayashi Maru by Julia Ecklar
My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

First mentioned in Star Trek II, The Kobayashi Maru is legendary in Trek fandom as the infamous no-win scenario simulation that Academy cadets must face.  Julia Ecklar gives us a look into how Kirk, Chekov, Sulu, and Scott faced the simulation while dealing with a literal life-and-death situation.  The accounts are personal to each man as we get a glimpse of these characters when they were just cadets, personally I can not pick one as the best of the four however I will say that Ecklar’s version of Kirk’s creative solution is more impressive than presented in the 2009 Star Trek film.  This is by far the best Star Trek novel I’ve read and I found it difficult to put down.
