In this quick reads or young adult adaptation of the classic 1996 movie Star Trek: First Contact we are introduced to the new Enterprise-1701-E and the fact that she has been out in space for a year by the time these events come to pass. The Borg the Federations most dreadful enemy has sent a ship to attack Earth but this time they use a temporal vortex to travel back in time to assimilate Earth before First Contact and change history. The Enterprise follows them back in order to stop them but once they're both in 2063 the Borg ship is destroyed but the damage was already done as they shot the missile complex where Zefram Cochrane was building Earth's first warp ship the Phoenix. From this point on the book follows the script of the film and gives good incite into why Cochrane wanted to build the warp ship up to the point where he now understood why people from the twenty-fourth century looked at him as a visionary because breaking the warp barrier lead to First Contact and a whole new future for Earth. Regardless of the format I recommend picking up a copy of this book and the novelization by J.M. Dillard you won't be disappointed.

Don’t get to excited6 February 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this book hoping it would be better than the movie. I was dissatisfied the book is at best 3 stars which in after thought was spot on go read if your a Treke fan but for the average reader it’s flat. I will say in my opinion the movie was better which is rare for me especially a Star Trek movie

Excellent Novelization19 January 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
This book follows the movie very closely and expands on some of the characters . More of the motivations of the various characters are revealed. A good book to add to anyone's Star Trek collection.

Sad to see this was a straight script translation with YA filters. No extra background and several scenes cut or edited.
