Many fans(myself included) latched onto these novels and if you asked them about Star Trek they would direct you first to the books, then to the television series. When Star Trek Picard was announced and released, many fans wondered what the state of the books would be. Would they simply reset everything and call it a day on the Literary-Verse as it was or would the show somehow fit the books? It turns out a third option was open where the Books can now have their own change where they will fit into the new continuity. Enter: Dayton Ward, James Swallow, David Mack and the rest of the team at Gallery Books! I must start out by applauding the whole team for including the "Previously" portion on the first few pages. I felt years of reading come back and I felt kind of nostalgic. It also refreshed my memory and actually informed me on a few of the books I hadn't read yet. The information on this previously page will give you everything you need to know if you're somewhat new to the franchise. This was a brilliant move to put this front and center in the book. This book definitely starts out a big trilogy...but it opens somewhat small. Rather than jump back and forth with Rapid fire scenes like David Mack's "Destiny Trilogy" or with the new Star Wars High Republic epic "Light of the Jedi", Ward mainly focuses this book on the Enterprise crew. The crews and ships from Titan, Aventine, and more show up, but this really is a Enterprise-E book. There is also an inclusion of a long missed character which made me really excited. There are definitely some parallels to the opening of the Literary-Verse with some of the characters included in this book. From what I understand, the big opening to the Nemesis universe came with the "A Time to" series in 2004 and this book REALLY references a subplot from those books(When you read the book, you'll know what I mean). This not only serves as good connective tissue, but it means that the whole lit-verse kind of bookends itself. It's kind of hard to get into the characters and plot without discussing spoilers, but I'll do my best. Picard, as always, was written great, and I felt that both he and Crusher had the best writing of the book. Their relationship is handled really well and he had some tough decisions in this book that I admired. At the same time, some of the Enterprise-E crew, who aren't from the movies or shows, got some time to shine. T'ryssa Chen and Taurik were standouts for me. There were even more that I enjoyed reading, and Dayton Ward struck the nice balance that he needed to. I had a feeling this would happen in this series, but you should know going in that no characters are safe. And if no characters are safe in this book, imagine how unsafe characters will be when David Mack takes the reins! This still feels like a Dayton Ward novel. I've read about 5 of his novels now, and the word choice, the pacing, the action, the characters' dialogue all felt like Dayton's other novels. That's not a suprise, given that authors will have natural styles in all of their books. That being said, Ward's style has always been a little bland to me. It seems to me that Ward is one of the authors who has written so many books simply because he has such a history and an understanding of the franchise that no one else really does. That is helpful in the continuity side of things. However, where James Swallow deals with intrigue, David Mack deals with deep moral themes, John Jackson Miller deals with broad themes, and Una McCormack deals with political themes, I can't say that Ward deals with anything comperable. However, as mentioned earlier, Ward's familiarity with the franchise and his mastery of the characters and feel of the story is why he is an invaluable resource to the Simon and Scheuster(Gallery) team. I think his recent job working on the Continuity of Star Trek is one of the smartest moves that the Star Trek team could make. There were many things I would have done differently with this book. Part of that stems from how I would handle the series as a whole, but some of it deals directly with Wards' writing choices. However, this is still a very interesting book with a fantastic hook for the next book and with just the right references, tie-ins, and connections to not only the literary universe, but to the television episodes as well. Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was a fun read and I cannot wait for the next one. I give this book an 8.5 out of 10! Excellent work Dayton Ward(and team)!

    Dayton Ward has been playing merry hell with my emotions over the last six days, in the best possible sense. Star Trek’s first, best destiny has always been on television screens, but the novels have come damn close to replicating the magic. I’m grateful that The Powers That Be are letting Ward, James Swallow, and David Mack “swing for the fences,” as their editors put it. This is a work on a par with the Destiny trilogy, and I cannot wait for Books 2 and 3.

    1st review! STAR TREK: CODA: MOMENTS ASUNDER is a big epic disaster movie of a storyline. It reminds me most of STAR TREK: DESTINY but is even more focused on everything utterly going to Hell. The former was a war movie but this is much more an indescribable event that is beyond our heroes to deal with.

STAR TREK: CODA: MOMENTS ASUNDER is a big epic disaster movie of a storyline. It reminds me most of STAR TREK: DESTINY but is even more focused on everything utterly going to Hell. The former was a war movie but this is much more an indescribable event that is beyond our heroes to deal with. Well, not quite, it is more like CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS with the old continuity of the Star Trek universe being sent to its final resting place in likelihood of a reboot that will feature a timeline closer to the Nu Trek on Paramount Plus. Whether you think this is necessary or not will probably impact your love of the book or not. As far as I was concerned, the finale of STAR TREK: THE FALL pretty much wrapped up the Litverse as much as you needed to be. You can just move on to a new continuity after a happy ending like the kind we managed to get. I'm reminded of the famous quotation, "A happy ending depends on where you stop the story" by Orson Welles (allegedly). When the old STAR WARS Expanded Universe ended, I always felt it had gone a little too long as we knew that Luke/Han/Leia's sacrifices would end up with the dystopian LEGACY comics. Was it necessary to blow up the universe (if that's what they're doing)? No. Is it a good story so far? Yes, but those who have an attachment to the characters of the Litverse may feel numerous gut punches and kicks before this is over. It's closing time and the Dayton Ward clearly thinks that this means a fire sale. While the "canon" characters of the Star Trek universe will undoubtedly be in the rebooted timline just fine (except for the ones killed off nin Picard), the ones who are purely of the novelverse are not going to be so lucky I fear. Really, the only one we know will be "safe" is Christine Vale and that's because she shows up in DARK VEIL.I will be honest, one of the deaths in this book REALLY hit me hard. *points at Dayton Ward* Oh My Kahless, you killed [Blank], you petaQ! The Monitor of this particular Crisis on Infinite Treks is, of all people, Wesley Crusher and it's a shame Will Wheaton has stated he's done with the character. I think he would be a very well loved character if he showed up as his Traveler form. Seeing him desperately trying to save his kid brother (who won't exist in the Picard-verse), his mother, his stepfather, and the Enterprise is a surprisingly moving story. The enemies they face are perhaps a little hard to believe (I think the Sphere Builders would have been a better choice) but I'm glad they mined Trek lore for these guys rather than inventing someone new. This is a harsh and ruthless book but one that I'm glad to have ordered every copy of. The Trekverse has lasted decades of fun but now it's time to bring it an end. Let us at least meet it like Klingons, head on.

    I thought I’d be prepared. Boy, was I wrong. I am not big on time travel adventures so I went into the story with not too high expectations. What a thrill of a rollercoaster ride. This is only book 1 and they didn’t hold anything back, makes me a bit nervous and excited for the rest of the trilogy.

    This might be my favorite book of the year. It feels like Star Trek in all the ways the recent tv shows haven’t. The villains are perfect for this story and not just some tossed off character that’s forced into another story. It makes SENSE. I loved it and I cannot wait for the next two!

    So, before anything else, you should know why this book exists. It's basically like the MCU creating Loki the series to allow for stories that used to be canon but now aren't. And, even if you don't want to read this book, you should at LEAST read the first chapter, because it's basically a blow by blow of everything important that's happened in the Star Trek storyline after each series ended up until "now".

And, even if you don't want to read this book, you should at LEAST read the first chapter, because it's basically a blow by blow of everything important that's happened in the Star Trek storyline after each series ended up until "now". And, yes, "now" is a bit shaky, but it's basically after the last TNG movie and before Picard's TV series. But it doesn't go all the way up to Picard's show, as he's still Captain of the Enterprise E. I'm not going to spoil anything that happens in Coda book one, but there's a threat not only to one Universe, but all of them, and Wesley Crusher's trying to piece it all together with help from the Enterprise E and to a lesser degree, the Titan. We also hear about the last of the Enterprise main characters' possible opportunities that would cause them to finally leave the ship. The plot is very long and very complicated, but it all feels VERY Star Trek. In my opinion, this book was very much needed, and if you've ever been a fan of TNG, then this book is something you could get behind even if you aren't caught up on the book canon. At the end of this book, it's explained that it was necessary because Star Trek Picard destroys most of the canon of the novels that have shown up in the last 16 or 17 years. As you can tell from the title, this book is a trilogy and I'm very much looking forward to reading the other two, and seeing what else they do AFTER this trilogy to cover the time between "now" and Star Trek Picard. Honestly, I think it would have been far easier to consider Picard the non-canon thing and leave hundreds of books alone, but I guess what's bad enough for Star Wars is bad enough for Star Trek.

    I will mark it with 4 but I'm almost leaning to 3.5. unfortunately this book was released just a little after a show that deals with some similar concepts with alternate timelines and realities so it didn't wow me us as much as it may wow others. Now the plot itself was.... depressing, in a good way? Like I hate how this is playing out but I need to read the rest and I wanted to know more every second despite all the death and destruction following characters we all know and love.

    Decent book with a great setup for the rest of the trilogy. Feels almost a little bit like a subpar David Mack book. A little too much technical mumbo jumbo about quantum mechanics. But also great for any new fan who hasn't read the last 20 years of books, as it's quite accessible for anyone. Also, love how the villains are a classic throwback. 4/5.

    Since 2001, the Star Trek novels across multiple series have given we the reader a chance to continue on with stories & events in the era post "Star Trek: Nemesis", "What You Leave Behind" and "Endgame". Until the premiere of "Star Trek: Picard" that timeline was mostly safe, but the reality is the creators of that series chose not to stick to what was known as novel canon. With the "Star Trek: Coda" trilogy, we the fans of the novels and Trek in general have been given what is the most importan Since 2001, the Star Trek novels across multiple series have given we the reader a chance to continue on with stories & events in the era post "Star Trek: Nemesis", "What You Leave Behind" and "Endgame". Until the premiere of "Star Trek: Picard" that timeline was mostly safe, but the reality is the creators of that series chose not to stick to what was known as novel canon. With the "Star Trek: Coda" trilogy, we the fans of the novels and Trek in general have been given what is the most important book series since "Destiny" and also a way to reconcile just how we got to this new reality and for the fans a tribute to the last 20 years of loyalty as readers. With "Moments Asunder", Dayton Ward begins the task with a tale that is stunning & breathtaking in scope as well as acknowledging what this current novel timeline looks like. The biggest returning character in this premise is Wesley Crusher who has been dealing with trying to understand just why certain timelines have been diverging and disappearing. When a future version of himself learns something that eventually causes that version's death it's up to an alternate version to help figure this out. With the help of the Enterprise crew, Aventine & DTI, it's eventually determined that the Devidians ("Time's Arrow Parts 1 & 2) are trying to find a way to destroy all of time itself. Ward's fast paced novel is at times heart warming & heartbreaking as we watch these characters we know & love go through the unspeakable with deaths that will shock we the reader even though ultimately they maybe necessary. The use of the Relativity is a nice gesture as well especially for a trilogy involving time travel. Where this ultimately ends up is anyone's guess right now but 1 book in, this reader is beyond ready to see just where this ends up and how we reach the conclusion.

    Challenge: reset the Trek timeline for the new series, without turning the novels into “legends.” Here’s the intriguing answer: a timeline Armageddon that resets time itself. Lots of fun and complex interactions from the litverse.

To avoid giving away too many spoilers, I'm not going to include a detailed synopsis. The plot involves temporal anomalies scattered across time and space, which gets the attention of 'traveler' Wesley Crusher, the crew of the 29th-century starship USS Relativity, and the Guardian of Forever. Who or what is responsible for these events is connected to a two-part TNG episode. Wesley time-shifts aboard the Enterprise-E in 2387 to seek help from his stepfather, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, and mother, Beverly Crusher, only to learn his half-brother René is physically being altered by the temporal anomalies. That's as far as I'm going to go with the plot. Read the book if you want to know more. The story features other Trek characters, such as Captian Ezri Dax and the crew of the USS Aventine, Admiral William T. Riker, Commander Deana Troi, Commander Tom Paris, and Commander B'Elanna Torres. The USS Enterprise-D crew from an alternate reality (first seen in the Star Trek: TNG novel Headlong Flight) also appears. Overall, I enjoyed reading Star Trek: Coda: Book 1: Moments Asunder. A part of me will mourn the loss of "the litverse" continuity but will welcome the timeline changes that I'm guessing will occur by the end of the third book. Sadly, all things must come to an end - or receive a timeline correction using good old-fashioned science fiction.

Wish the new TV universe (other than Lower Decks) could continue on their darker "timeline." and just leave us the novels. There is room for both. Honestly, I'm scared. I shall re title this. ST: Coda: Moments Asunder-the bloodbath. The writing is amazing. The narrative. The quiet moments. The work with the lesser characters. But...why, oh why????? Was it really necessary? I read the author's notes at the end. I'll have to wait to see where it leads. (of course, I'll read the rest of it.) I felt a bit of the same with the Destiny trilogy (loved the Borg origin story-the continuation-not so much. IMO (and this is just me-perhaps they went too far?) Same with the Bacco timeline. Again-wish they had not taken that route. I guess I'm too wrapped up the in the optimistic view of TOS, TNG etc. (my age? I don't know) although I loved DS9 and enterprise. and DS9 had lots of conflict. killing off a MAJOR DS9 character-yikes! Don't yell at me, folks!

    Okay, so: new threat for the universe and for time itself, with the crews of Enterprise-E, Aventine and Titan that found themselves in the line of duty while trying to protect not only themself and the Federation, but also all the timelines known and unknown. As soon as I am able, a complete review on my personal blog, but for now what can I say? Dayton Ward surmise a novel well written, with mysteries that now need to be unreveiled. Looking forward to complete the reading of the trilogy.

    For me, I’m afraid this was a bit unsatisfying. Ward had the unenviable task of setting up some very complex, multiverse shattering plot stuff that will no doubt pay off in the next two novels. It’s just that on its own it feels really incomplete. It’s like the teaser to a Trek episode. I think the best trilogies offer up a complete story of some kind in each of their constituent parts. I didn’t feel that here.

    Goddam I enjoyed this book. I love Star Trek Next Gen - grew up with it, watched it every week, bought the DVD sets, used to re-watch every Christmas. And it was so great to go back into this world and see Wesley (as a Traveller), catch up with Picard and Crusher, Georgie and the rest of the gang. There seemed to be a lot more death and destruction that I recalled in the TV show - but it was well written and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    I am a fan of all of the Star Trek TV series and I've read many of the books, but I found this one a little hard to follow. The story jumps around from place (and time) to place (and time) and at times I wasn't always sure where (or when) I was! This is the first of a trilogy and at present I'm not sure I'll bother with the other two books, although I do want to know what happens...

    Fun read so far - linking lots of Star Trek fiction continuity together. I'm a big fan of the DTI books so fun to have them in here. Have to say I get nods to Crisis on Infinite Earths in this - which is no bad thing. Fun read so far - linking lots of Star Trek fiction continuity together.

Dayton Ward: Okay, what if we killed off Ezri Dax? That would be something happening, right? Me: No, Dayton. Not like that. RIP in peace, Queen Ezri. You were done supremely dirty.

    The authors are thinking big for this finale, and I like the subtle meta-narrative about the end of the post-finale book universe. Now I'm wondering exactly how meta it will get by the end.
