4.0 su 5 stelle Overall, some great stories 30 settembre 2016
Di Brett Hartman - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is an anthology of four novellas, each set in different time periods of the Vanguard saga. Only the last of the novellas, by David Mack, directly pertains to the ongoing journey in the Taurus Reach, so that one is not to be skipped.

"Almost Tomorrow" by Dayton Ward tells the story of how T'Prynn found out Sandesjo was a spy. The story is quite boring, and tells us nothing we don't already know. It can probably be skipped in its entirety. (3/5)

"Hard News" by Kevin Dilmore is a first-person novella that tracks Tim Pennington in the wake of his news releases. I was expecting to hate the story, but I came away quite liking it. (5/5)

"The Ruins of Noble Men" by Marco Palmieri is a story about evacuating a settlement on the far-reaches of the Taurus Reach. It flashes back to a story regarding a different evacuation involving then-Captain Reyes. The main storyline is a bit dry, but the flashback is pretty darn interesting. (4/5)

"The Stars Look Down" by David Mack continues the main Vanguard storyline. It is an exceptional story, not to be missed. (5/5)

5.0 su 5 stelle This Trekkie has feels... 16 settembre 2014
Di Mario E. Coto - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Wow. Just...wow. The Vanguard series has done more to satisfy more craving for more Trek than CBS/Paramount has done in years. This was such a solid read. Declassified has four short stories in one book. But don't go passing this up. Each story significantly add to the story arc of Vanguard. Especially the last one. I had to put the book down in stunned silence after that one. The death of one the characters I loved and was rooting for (no spoilers) left me crushed. But that's when you know you have something special here. I think what makes it all the more remarkable is that takes place during the Original Series era. I love the show, but the sixties was a decades of camp. That doesn't exist here. If I had to compare it to something, ST: Vanguard is like the Battlestar Galactica for Star Trek. And I swear, if this doesn't get picked up as a TV or more series...hell...even a web series...that would make it the mother of missed opportunities. If you have to pick up and read just one Star Trek novel series, make it this one. Already purchased the next book!

5.0 su 5 stelle A Great Introduction to the Series 20 luglio 2011
Di TerilynnS - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Declassified is a single book with four short tales that revolve around Starbase 47 - Vanguard. As I am a recent new reader of the Vanguard series, I am confident in saying this book would be a perfect introduction to the anyone who might be toying with the idea of delving into the series.

Dayton Ward's well-written prequel "Almost Tomorrow" does much to not only introduce a new reader into the series and its characters (all of whom he has a wonderful grasp on - especially Commodore Reyes), but also into the station and the secrets it holds, without spoiling any of the intrigue from the first 5 full-length books. Of course, it also didn't hurt that a lot of the story got to focus on the U.S.S. Sagittarius and her incredible crew. Captain Nassir and Commodore Reyes have to fight for my heart I'm afraid!

While another reviewer seemed to have trouble with Kevin Dilmore's effort "Hard News" it is, in my opinion, simply his finest work to date. It is an incredible and at times painful tale of a character that is very, very human and one of which I was never particularly fond. The story is a brilliant bit of "missing piece" story-telling, taking place between two of the books in the timeline. It is also a rare 1st person tale that we don't often get in Trek books for obvious reasons. Dilmore made me love a character that I was put-off of in the first novel and that it no easy task.

My happiest surprise was Marco Palmieri's first and only contribution to the series. "The Ruins of Noble Men" became my favorite of the book and also provided me with my favorite line from the book. It was expertly crafted, and although the chapters bounce between both time and central characters, I never lost my way.

And finally in "The Stars Look Down" David Mack once again shows off why he carries the reputation that he does. He fears almost nothing. The final tale in the book revolves around his favorite character and it shows. Mack gives Cervantes Quinn his Don Quixote soul and never, ever apologizes for it. He's probably the most heart-breaking character in Trek to date.

It's strange - sometimes I think the Trek authors are better at, and I get more out of, the shorter character studies than in full-length novels. Also, it's at times when I read books like this that I wonder whether younger readers would ever really "get" the meat of the author's tales. Several times the books hit me hard emotionally and I had to wonder if it was because I might be a bit "longer in the tooth" than the average Trek reader. I'm not sure. All I know is that I'm okay with that.

All in all, Declassified is a perfect sampling of why the Vanguard series may be the best Trek series ever written and published. I couldn't recommend it highly enough.
5.0 su 5 stelle Declassified: filling in the gaps 7 maggio 2012

This book is actually four short stories that "fill in the blanks" for the five novels preceding it, and in a way also give insight into the two novels which follow it.

"Almost Tomorrow" focuses more on Ambassador Jetanien and "behind-the-scenes" diplomacy than anything else ... but touches upon almost every major character in some way, revealing the 'why' of some actions taken.

"Hard News" has Tim Pennington as the central character, with relationships between Cervantes Quinn, Diego Reyes, T'Prynn and the reporter ... and the reporter's editor ... as the central theme.

"The Ruins of Nobel Men" has Diego Reyes in the spotlight, elaborating on the nodes shared with Rana Desai, Ezekiel Fisher and Hallie Gannon, back-tracking to 2259, when it was Captain Diego Reyes.

"The Stars Look Down" is a Bridy Mac and Cervantes Quinn epic, with Ming Xiong largely in the role of an observer. It supports Quinn's actions in the next two novels.

The entire Vanguard series has been epic so far. It rivals any epic I have read for depth and breadth of story and character. In between the main novels are these Novellas. I read them intermittently, where and when they fell in story chronology. They are every bit as good as the main episodes and are required reading as the main volumes do make reference to events within them. Highly recommended.
