The Romulan Way (Star Trek #35) - Diane Duane, Peter Morwood As "Balance of Terror" is one of my favorite Star Trek episodes, in my youth I followed Diane Duane's collection of novels avidly as they explored who and what the Romulans really were.

I do not "agree" with her version of the Romulans (I have my own "private" Star Trek universe with my own take on these Vulcan offshoots; you can see some of it on my blog:

Ms. Duane is, nevertheless, a pretty good author and I like the character of Ael. I'm not so taken with Duane's rather simplistic view of "good," "evil" and "honor" but this isn't a likely prospect for a new Western Literary Canon, it's just good, solid, escapist fun.
