The Star Trek: Signature Edition series continues with this thrilling adventure featuring Commander Spock, Captain Kirk, and the U.S.S. Enterprise. The fiercest battles and proudest warriors throughout Klingon history are said to reflect the honor and glory of the race's first emperor, Kahless the Unforgettable. But history is not always truthful. And for both the Klingon Empire and the United Federation of Planets, the real truth may be too difficult to accept. In the pages of a novel disclaimed by Starfleet, an enemy offers his perspective on events that transpired during the formative years of Klingon-Federation relations in the early twenty-third century. Chronicling the life story of Krenn, a Klingon war strategist who learns of peace while on a mission to Earth, the novel is a testimony to his efforts to preserve the honor of his people...by preventing total war against the then-struggling Federation. Nearly a century later, a clone of the revered Kahless oversees the Klingon Empire. But when the myths and legends associated with the original emperor are disputed following the discovery of an ancient scroll, the new Kahless faces treason from within his own council, and impending civil war that could tear the empire apart. His sole chance for restoring his people's shattered faith must come from the outside--specifically, from Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Lieutenant Worf of the U.S.S. Enterprise.… (mais)

I bought this because it was the only edition of John M. Ford's "Final Reflection" that I could find, and I really have to wonder what the hell possessed the editors to put it together with Friedman's "Khaless".
Beyond the fact that they're both Star Trek novels about Klingons, the two books have nothing in common.
Ford writes a cunning book about a completely alien culture, and it's some of the best damn scifi I've read in a long time. Seriously, even if you can't stand Star Trek, if you like scifi even a little, this will bring you joy. Just don't buy this edition. Buy the standalone edition, even if you have to pay more.
Khaless is horrible. I've read better Trek fanfic, and after finishing the Final Reflection, the quality change will be very jarring. The whole thing is cliched, and isn't much more than about 200 pages of fan service. Not even good fan service.
Note that I still gave this book four stars. Yes, the Final Reflection really is that good. ( )
