Description

Time in the galaxy has stopped running in its normal course. That can mean only one thing -- the Guardian of Forever is malfunctioning. To save the universe, Starfleet Command reunites three of its most legendary figures -- Admiral James T. Kirk, Spock of Vulcan, and Dr. Leonard McCoy -- and sends them on a desperate mission to contact the Guardian, a journey that ultimately takes them 5,000 years into the past. They must find Spock's son Zar once again, and bring him back to their time to telepathically communicate with the Guardian.

But Zar is enmeshed in troubles of his own, and soon Kirk, Spock, and McCoy find themselves in a desperate struggle to save both his and their world.

    On it's own Time for Yesterday by A.C. Crispin is a decent, fun Star Trek novel whether one has read it's precursor novel Yesterday's Son. With that said, one's enjoyment of the novel and understanding of the interactions between Kirk, Spock, and McCoy (as well as the majority of the TOS Enterprise crew) with Zar can only come after having read Yesterday's Son. The book contains two plots that cross with one another thanks to time travel, but it's the initial one of the malfunctioning Guardian of Forever that comes across as the better of the two especially as the reader meets the creators of the Guardian.Having been given this book by a relative, I didn't know what to expect. The book was a fun read, but after the Guardian plot was wrapped up the rest of the book was missing the backstory that Yesterday's Son would have provided. So you're thinking about reading this book without having read Yesterday's Son, I recommend you don't. Find Yesterday's Son either on Kindle or at a used book store or at a friend's house and read it first before Time for Yesterday. I fully intend to find Yesterday's Son so I can re-read this book and have a better appreciation (and review of it).

    This book is the wonderful conclusion to another A.C. Crispin book entitled Yesterdays Son. I fell in love with this story line from the get go. A.C. Crispin knows how to write and knows how to really stay true to the Star Trek genre as a whole. She has masterfully crafted this book. This and it's partner book are my two all time favorite Science Fiction books.

    The Guardian of Forever is acting wonky, and the entire universe may go out with a nova, not a whimper. In addition, Spock finds that his son in the past (see Yesterday's Son) is doomed to die in a battle. The Terrific Trio (Kirk, Spock, and Bones) go through the Guardian to bring Zar back so he can try to talk sense into the Guardian and make it behave. In the meantime, Zar makes a political marriage that turns to love. So now he wants to survive the battle, come back from the future and stay with his queen. It sounds confusing, but it isn't. Crispin is one of the better Star Trek novelists. A good read.
