Star Trek: A Time to Hate is the sixth book in the A Time to series, produced by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster and was written by Robert Greenberger and released in July of 2004.

The first two books in the series by John Vornholt had an interesting premise, but were not executed well. The next two books, by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore, just seemed bland, almost as if they were filler books in the series where barely anything of consequence happened. Hope was rekindled in the previous book A Time to Love by Robert Greenberger. In this book, Greenberger finally pays off many of the promises that the series has made. 

This book’s plot itself wasn’t particularly strong, as it lacked the energy that some of the previous books in the series had. This might have been one of the most lackluster A-plots of the entire series. I thought that the “cure” was too simple and didn’t have enough difficulty for the crew. As a whole, this was the one plot where I really didn’t care what happened to the people of the planet, even though I really cared in the last book.

Star Trek: A Time to Love is the fifth book in the A Time to series, produced by Pocket Books at Simon and Schuster and was written by Robert Greenberger and released in May of 2004.

It feels like the previous four books were just set up, and the meat of the A Time to series is just about to take off. This book is significantly better than its predecessors, showing the heights that this series could have achieved. Unfortunately, Greenberger makes some poor choices here as well, keeping it from attaining the highest of scores. 

The best part of this book is the accessibility. This one had the easiest premise and easiest action to follow. I found myself struggling to follow the characters, action, and events of the previous four books at various times. However, I was not lost once in this book. Despite being science fiction, this book felt like it was written to a more general audience, and the science fiction elements were toned down.
