The Eugenics Wars, Vol. 1 by Greg Cox

The Eugenics Wars, Vol. 1 (Star Trek)The Eugenics Wars, Vol. 1 by Greg Cox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"It's all true!" Those words from Galaxy Quest fit for this stellar exercise in retconning!

I'd read this book when it came out, and recently got Kindle editions of the whole trilogy - it's a fun read. Carefully weaving 40+ years of Trek - and REAL - history into a narrative that explains how we didn't notice the "Eugenics War" and the rise (and fall) of Khan. Oh, and there's a story woven through with Kirk, Spock, McCoy, et al facing a new planet of genetic supermen.

On to the next volume!
