A little lacking, but still a good read

by TheMadTurtle on Nov 16, 2009

Generally, I enjoy Star Trek film novelizations. Because they're written from the original screenplay, they often have nice little pieces of back story that sometimes get left on the editing room floor. Reading this film's novelization was a bit different. Some of those back story pieces are in there, particularly as they relate to Kirk. However, what was different for me was the realization that there were obviously things in the film that were "thrown in" or tweaked in the last minute that actually added quite a bit to the film that were missing in the novelization. This isn't so much a criticism of Foster's work as the author as much as it is a compliment or praise to the directors/editors/actors of the film for capturing those moments on film and keeping them in the movie.
