    Ultimately pretty lame The 20 minute animated episodes do not expand well to full length novels, despite Mr Foster s best efforts Slaver Weapon, in particular, sounds pretty cool from the description and turns out to be a slog of a novel having little to do with the Slavers or their ancient technology but instead mostly about Kirk, Spock, Uhura and Sulu getting their minds swapped on the eve of an important peace conference under threat by the Klingons Mr Foster is a talented writer, and Ultimately pretty lame The 20 minute animated episodes do not expand well to full length novels, despite Mr Foster s best efforts Slaver Weapon, in particular, sounds pretty cool from the description and turns out to be a slog of a novel having little to do with the Slavers or their ancient technology but instead mostly about Kirk, Spock, Uhura and Sulu getting their minds swapped on the eve of an important peace conference under threat by the Klingons Mr Foster is a talented writer, and I m sure he could have done better than this
