I have just finished books 1 & 2, and have started book 3 in this new Klingon trilogy. They are basically good books, well developed characters and an interesting story. This series tries to address some of the differences between the personalities of the Klingons from TOS and from the later shows. In this series set during the early part of the original five year mission, the majority of Klingons do not follow the teachings of Kahless, but a few ofthe main characters do.

There is a good part in the second book where the Enterprise comes across a planet full of primative Klingons, who have never met anyone from the Empire and do not know of Kahless. They speak an archaic form of Klingon, which is similar to that spoken by some of the main characters. Other than the fact that this contains the usual federation propaganda, the only thin that I dislike about the book is the poor editing. Character names are sometimes wrong, and there is one character who goes back and forth between Ensign and Lieutenant sometimes on the same page.

The main arc is about a Klingon infiltrator who has been surgically altered to apear human, and now serves aboard the Enterprise, with the intent of killing Captain Kirk. Of course he begins to doubt the mission once he learns that the entire empire is wrong and humans are really nice folks, but still e does offer someinteresting insights about the rise of honor as the cultural norm in the Empire.

Overall a good read.

As I am currently updating my Amazon Wishlist (it's St. Nicholas soon), I'd like to know the name of this second trilogy...
I'm putting the first trilogy on, and indeed the whole of this forum is going to be on my wishlist...
