Dayton Ward (born June 7, 1967) is a science fiction author primarily known for his Star Trek novels and short stories, which began with publication in the Strange New Worlds anthology series. He published stories in each of the first three Strange New Worlds volumes, making him the first author to render himself ineligible under the rules of that series. As such, future authors who achieved the same feat were said to have earned a "Wardy".

Dayton Ward has been a fan of Star Trek since conception (his, not the show's). Marine Corps, he discovered the private sector and the piles of cash to be made there as a software engineer. His start in professional writing came as a result of placing stories in each of the first three Star Trek: Strange New Worlds anthologies. With Kevin Dilmore, Dayton also co-wrote the Interphase duology for the Star Trek: . series of "eBooks" as well as that series' upcoming Foundations trilogy.

Ward tries to provide a transition between the Klingons as seen in the original series . The 2nd is how the book ends

Ward tries to provide a transition between the Klingons as seen in the original series, who were much more belligerent and without a strict sense of honor (though seeds of it could be found in characters like Kor and Kang), and those we seen in TNG. It's the very beginning of the adoption of that sense of honor. There are growing pains of course. Also Ward brings up the Klingon's different appearances, including Koroth's change in physical appearance. The 2nd is how the book ends. I won't spill the beans here, but the ending hardens Kirk's feelings towards Klingons that would continue until TUC. So overall I thought it was an entertaining book, just shy of excellent.

Ward has written a fast moving well planned story that lives up to what us long-time Star Trek fans have always loved about Kirk and his crew, The challenges are overcome with planning and thought , not with blind trigger-pulling, Kirk shows that there are many sides to this larger-than-life man that takes nothing away from the illustrious Starship Captain, Any one who has been a fan from the beginning will enjoy this story, Thanks Dayton Ward for a story that we diehard fans can enjoy,

Biggest problem with this book is there's too much reference to Klingon's "not always looking like that". I'm of the opinion that in "Trials and Tribulations" Worf or should have looked like a TOS Klingon, and the Enterprise arc explaining the change should have never happened.

The characters are well developed in this story,with a good plot,makes me think about all the peace talks man has held,but this 20th century is filled with violence,only God's Kingdom can bring about lasting peace on this beautiful earth!!!

From the moment I began reading this book, I found myself thinking, "There's a basic flaw here; this book is set between "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier" and "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country", but if the events in this book happened, I don't see how the reactions of the characters to the suggestion of peace with the Klingons in Star Trek VI would have existed; surely, their reactions would have been far more positive, as the groundwork for peace had been established already.

The author TRIED to address that issue in the last chapter or two, but really, it was a lost cause. Maybe, if one is willing to give Kirk far less credit for good sense than I'm inclined to, one could justify HIS reaction in Star Trek VI, but it would take a lot of effort. And it would in no way justify McCoy, Uhura, Chekov, & Scotty being as dubious as they were. If nothing else, SURELY, the events in this book would have been referred back to during that movie if they had happened shortly before it.

This is the risk one runs in trying to write a prequel; it's almost impossible to do well. If one is inclined to treat this as an "alternate timeline" story, which happens in a mirror universe that is the same as the established Star Trek timeline prior to the events in it, but which clearly does NOT lead to the events that the "normal" timeline says follow this point in time, it is an excellent story, with good action, characterization, and philosophical outlook. But if one tries to force it into the normal timeline, it just doesn't work.

I've been out of the Star Trek novel business for awhile. I used to buy them religiously, but they just never seemed to be worth the money to me. I was at the library recently, though, and there were a bunch of more recent Star Trek books there, so I checked them out.

The first book I looked at was In the Name of Honor, by Dayton Ward. The first thing that struck me was the dynamic cover. The Klingon war ship swooping over the canyon, firing away, was just beautiful. The insides were pretty good, too. I think you should probably be a Star Trek fan, or at least follow the series a bit, before you pick this up. The book just wallows in continuity.

The basic plot is that there is a peace conference going on between the Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire. They have been hostile toward each other since before the time of the original Trek series. About six years ago, a Federation ship was attacked by a Klingon cruiser. Prisoners were taken, but it was done secretly. Only a few high-ranking people knew about them. The Federation thought the ship was destroyed with no survivors. Now, with the peace talks happening, word has reached other Klingons that these prisoners exist. The Empire is undergoing some radical philosophical changes (in series terms, they're moving from the evil-doers of the Original Series to the honourbound Klingons of the Next Generation TV series), and the taking of these prisoners and holding them secretly is not honourable. The original higher-ups would make the problem go away if it was ever discovered.

Koloth, one of Kirk's Klingon enemies from the episode "The Trouble with Tribbles," brings this information to Captain Kirk, at the request of Councilor Gorkon. He wants a full disclosure to the Federation, but realizes that the original conspirators would have the prisoners killed if it was brought up. So Koloth brings the information to Kirk and they hatch a plan to launch a daring rescue of the prisoners. Meanwhile, opponents of the peace talks (including these conspirators) are trying to disrupt the conference. Kirk and Sulu go on the rescue mission while Spock and the rest of the crew deal with the crisis at the peace talks.

This book takes place between the movies Star Trek V and Star Trek VI. If you follow the Star Trek mythos, then this is important because it helps you place the personalities of some of the characters, as well as some of the events. Gorkon is the Klingon Chancellor in Star Trek VI, but he's a relatively new councilor in this book, for example. The book tries very hard to set everything up for the beginning of the sixth movie. For awhile, I was wondering how he was going to do that in Kirk's instance, because Kirk seemed to be learning to tolerate Klingons, and at the beginning of the sixth movie, he was virulently anti-Klingon. However, Ward does do a good job of setting that up so it makes sense. Circumstances occur that make it logical.

As I said earlier, though, the book just oozes continuity. I counted references to at least 10 original series episodes (Koloth and another Klingon are from one episode, and Commander Garrovick is from another episode). Unfortunately, the book grinds to a halt every time Ward has to give a short plot summary of that episode. It's especially annoying when you already remember the episode and get the reference without the explanation. Many of these references are just off-hand remarks, which makes them even more avoidable. I'm not even going to get into Ward's hinted explanation for the differences in appearance between the Original Series Klingons and the Movie/Next Generation Klingons (i.e. the ridged foreheads), because I'd never be able to do it justice in this limited space. Let's just say that the hinting was a bit too cute for my taste. Unfortunately, given the story, it was unavoidable. It would have been nice, at the very least, to not have to deal with why Koloth changed in appearance from an Original Series Klingon to a Movie Klingon.

The book does have its good points, though. It's well written for a first book (Ward has been previously published in the three fan anthologies published by Pocket Books). It's not standout writing, but it's certainly readable and not annoying. The story is interesting and the regular characters are well done. There are no glaring characterization problems, which can sometimes be a hazard with TV tie-in fiction. I definitely enjoyed my time reading it, but then I'm a Trekkie at heart. If you don't follow the series, however, I can't see that much in this story that would make you want to change that.
