  •     Sulu (now Captain Sulu) is one of the least explored characters in the Original Star Trek universe. This is one of David's most focused storylines. Telling a specific story about a specific character has not been one of David's previous formats for a novel. Suprisingly, David does very well in this new type(for him) of storytelling. This novel represents a major event in the mythology of Star Trek. Most of the novels will put you right back where you started from, without altering the fabric of the characters. The Captain's Daughter takes an extra step and goes beyond this limitation. That is what takes it up to a level of 8.
  •     Just got through this book in 1 night. It was very nice to read a book centered on Sulu. The book delves into Sulu's character with excellent insights. At the same time, a good storyline unfolded. And (not to give anything away), I was surprised and pleased by the turn of events as the story neared its climax. Often, I feel I want something more when a book ends. At the end of this book - I felt I had all expectations fulfilled!
  •     As might be expected by anyone familiar with Peter David's later writing, this book, one of his earlier efforts in the Star Trek universe, is one of the best of the series. It is a perfect example of his style, which is very distinctive: high action, high emotional drama, but always told with a tongue-in-cheek wit that keeps the reader from feeling that he takes his stories TOO seriously. Even though it is an early effort, and in some ways his writing matured over the years, I would still rate this not only as one of the best "Trek" stories, (as many of his stories could be said to be) but also one of his best.
  •     This book was definitely better than your average Star Trek novel. I'm surprised that it wasn't a hardcover first. If you are the type of Star Trek fan that always wanted more info on Sulu- the Captain, than this is the book for you. Great to read just after seeing the Star Trek Generations movie, and you might want to rescreen the 'Shore Leave' episode for maximum enjoyment. I'll read anything that Peter David writes. I can trust that I'll get a quality story from him. Check it out. (I'd give it 3 1/2 stars if I could)
  •     One of the best Trek novels I've ever read -- David fleshes out characters like Demora Sulu and Captain Harriman so well that I'd love to read more about them.
  •     Chapter 20 is maybe the one of the funnest passages ever written. The book is worth it for this alone. That's not to say the rest of the book is not great.
  •     When I first saw 'Generations', my thoughts mirrored Kirks. "When did Sulu find time to have a family?" This excellent book answers that question perfectly.
  •     Finally a book that gives us some insight into the private life of Sulu. We have been bombarded with information about Kirk, Spock and Bones but little has been done to add to...
  •     Nice to see Commander Rand with a significant part in the continuing trek. God bless Grace Lee Whitney.
  •     This is one of the best Star Trek novel I have ever read. Not only did it center around Sulu, who rarely gets center stage, but it also provided a lot of back story for his...

  •     Absurd storyline and mechanically flawed writing make this book unworthy of reading. The problem is that it is an inherently decent idea. Just so poorly executed that it is all but unreadable
  •     This was interesting. Much detail written about Sulu between TOS and the ST movies. Demora, as a semi-b@stard child growing up was interesting. While we don't know much about her as an adult.The author makes some logical leaps of faith between familiar chars. How they run into each other between the TOS, Movie era. How they kept in touch, even becoming part of an adoptive family with each other. It worked for me the way it was written.Interesting take on the Enterprise-B Captain and his rocky relationship with his Admiral father. Chekov sometimes is 'over the top' but a loyal friend of Sulu. As the story unfolds, it starts out sad, but quickly ceases. We see a Capt. Sulu commanding the Excelsior, showing obvious influences of having served under Capt. Kirk. The novel is NOT a 'Save the Universe' nor a 'Galactic civil war' but an intriguing mystery Sulu is determined to solve at any costs. A good read.
  •     The book was OK, it was to easy to know what was going to happen next. I thought the premise of The Captains Daughter was well developed but story line was lacking.
