Star Trek: S.C.E. Book Five
The first full-length novel starring the Starfleet Corps of Engineers!
“A perfect opportunity to be introduced to a wonderful set of characters that fulfill a distinctive role and provide a fresh and unusual perspective on the Star Trek universe.” – Trek Nation
Now it can be told: The origin of the S.C.E.!
In the twenty-fourth century, the U.S.S. da Vinci and its S.C.E. team led by Commander Sonya Gomez roam the galaxy, solving the technical problems of the universe in a state-of-the-art ship. But the road to the da Vinci was a difficult one, as the S.C.E. had to go through its share of growing pains back in the twenty-third century….
Even as the da Vinci spearheads a dramatic rescue of a runaway vessel, Captain Montgomery Scott recalls his younger days as the chief engineer of the U.S.S. Enterprise under Captain Kirk – and his own encounters with a much different Corps of Engineers. From the edge of the Romulan Neutral Zone, to the planet Beta III in the wake of the Landru computer, to the uncharted regions of deep space, Scotty joins forces with the battered old U.S.S. Lovell to bring the S.C.E. into the future!
Originally released as a trio of e-Books in June-August of 2002, Foundations matches up a story featuring the regular S.C.E. gang along with three flashback tales that give a glimpse into the origin of the group that will become the 24th Century version of the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. Each of the stories showcases Scotty working with the engineering specialists assigned to the U.S.S. Lovell, the predecessors to Captain David Gold and the crew of the da Vinci.
