    "I read this novel right after it came out back in the '80s, and have reread it several times since. I thought then and still do think it's a lot of fun. The story is fun because it's unpredictable: the premise, that a world of giant kitties is enduring some sort of plague and in order to cure it, the Enterprise must find the kitties' home world. You'd think that most of the novel would be about them searching for the planet, and finally finding it and getting handed the cure. Right? Nope. The planet proves surprisingly easy to find, despite the lack of clues as to its whereabouts. "

    "I’ve been a Trekkie forever, and this was a fun book to read as a kid. It ties together a lot of material from the originals and TNG, in a fairly interesting plot that involves the sort of scale and fantastic elements we like to see from Star Trek. On rereading it as an adult, it doesn’t hold up so well; it doesn’t introduce very many new concepts (preferring to re-use stuff from the TV shows); a lot of the worldbuilding is sub-par, the characters act a bit differently from their televised incarnations, and the plot in general is predictable and a little childish. It’s definitely not a bad Star Trek book; there’s plenty of terrible literature out there, and this isn’t it. But it’s not my favorite in the franchise either. If you’re not really into Star Trek, you’ll find this boring; if you’re a die-hard Trekkie, its flaws might make it offensive. I’ll give it 3 stars for being fine, but I can’t seriously recommend it to anyone anymore. "

    "My main sticking point is that Voyager got short shrift here. Seven, Chakotay and plenty of other big characters were left out or given so little attention that they were just shadows. All of their interactions felt tacked on: the story would have been exactly the same had they been left out. One of the things I enjoyed most about the writing was the inclusiveness of it: so many races, what felt like a good mix of female and male characters, all getting in a bit of kick ass action. I grew to appreciate the effort put in to reveal the back-story of so many characters. I kept looking up each character name just to review their previous stories, which occasionally became a risk of reading a spoiler before I could stop myself."

    "I am a trekkie and I think this is one of the better books in the Star Trek series. Mere Mortals is well written, David Mack knows what he's doing. The action is good, the plot development comes at a nice pace. This book was flat out amazing. I loved the story and it was easy to follow. The series is probably one of the best I have ever read in the Star Trek Universe. Highly recommend!"

    "Sometimes it's tough being a Trekkie, but I can't help it when there's so much material always coming out. The Return (Star Trek) is a great series of books by William Shatner, Captain Kirk himself, along with Judith Reeves-Stevens, and Garfield Reeves-Stevens. Now this isn't a typical space voyage story it actually details Captain Kirk's comeback. I like how it blends the old generation and new generation together as this opens up doors of opportunity for new stories to be told. As a Trekkie it's a nice addition to the collection."
