Psi Phi's Star Trek Books Database
Written by Dayton Ward and Kevin Dilmore
The first full-length novel starring the Starfleet Corps of Engineers!
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 has 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 th 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!
One hundred and twelve years before the heyday of the da Vinci, Montgomery Scott took an assignment to the Romulan Neutral Zone to work alongside the crew of the U.S.S. Lovell and her staff from the Starfleet Corps of Engineers. But this S.C.E. is much different from the modern version--a down-and-dirty team of technicians given the worst jobs in the fleet. When the repair of one of the Neutral Zone outposts goes horribly wrong, Scotty and the nascent S.C.E. team must work together to keep the outpost in one piece...
Three years later, the Starship Enterprise encountered--and deactivated--a world-running computer called Landru on Beta III. In the aftermath of the incident, a team of engineers, led by Montgomery Scott, is tasked with getting Beta III back on its feet. But even in "death", Landru's influence can still be felt...
An engineering accident on an experimental Kelvan ship, seven years later, sent Scotty and an S.C.E. team led by his old friend Commander Mahmud al-Khaled into uncharted space. When a group of hostile aliens demand that they leave or face the consequences, the S.C.E. must work against the clock to repair the ship or face destruction!
