Star Wreck II: The Attack of the Jargonites Reviews
Hilarious. In contrast to other reviews, I think this is much funnier than Mad Magazine Star Dreck parodies.
This book continues the Trek fan's dream of having lots of Trek humor that satirizes the beloved characters and concepts. It is clearly not as fresh and funny as the first book, but this time we get to see the original and Next Gen crews each in their own ship and competing with each other rather than trying to share a ship and work together. Fans always wanted to see the two crews square off,and Generations tried to fill that desire, but left most fans dissapointed. Despite the comedy and absurdity, this about as close to that fan desire that we are ever likely to experience, even in comics or novel form. The owners of the franchise are very coy about telling stories like that. In fact, despite the absurdity, the stories do read almost like real Trek stories in much of the text. This time, self-help gurus, rather than dieting culture are the target of satire.
This one was a little better than the first installment, but instead of 80s fat jokes, this one is 80s/early 90s self help parody. So ... a slight improvement, but not much. It's generally funny, but a MAD magazine Star Trek spoof is probably better.
Just not that funny.
