Star Trek 2009 Film Novel and Audio Book Tie In Review - Basement Book Club

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement  Book Club…

Yeah it’s another ‘sub-series’ that may be sporadic and re-named constantly, but this one won’t have a video counter-part. I have a number books on my shelves… and people liked the spotlight I placed on Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse… I figure why not, try to make it a regular feature.

So the first book in this series, will be… the novelization of the 2009 Star Trek film. And Right off the bat on the cover, there is an interesting creative credits. The novel is by Alan Dean Foster, but it was written by Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman, the duo who wrote the film.

This makes for a rather interesting conundrum, for A.D. Foster has the story credit for Star Trek The Motion Picture, and has done novelizations of the Animate Trek episodes back in the 70s in addition to novelizations for other franchises, including Star Wars, Alien Nation, The Alien Franchise and others… and on thing that is fairly consistent with the novelizations …
