Star Trek: Corps of Engineers

There has always been a Corps of Engineers – a group who builds bridges, fixes machines, and solves engineering problems. In Star Trek, this group solves engineering problems in space that are too complicated, or take too much time, for a larger starship crew to handle. This series centers on the crew of the USS da Vinci, a Saber-class ship that serves as the transportation of an SCE team. The SCE reports to Captain Montgomery Scot (of the original Star Trek), who serves as their liaison with Starfleet Command and also pitches in when his vast store of knowledge can be of help.

Wounds is a collection of eBooks which are republished in a paperback format. This is the 11th collection in the series. I like this series because there is more science and technologies than the average Star Trek stories.

The stories in this collection are:

Malefictorum by Terri Osborne

Lost Time by Ilsa J. Bick

Identity Crisis by John J. Ordover

Fables of the Prime Directive by Cory Rushton

Security by Keith R.A. DeCandido

Wounds, Book 1 by Ilsa J. Bick

Wounds, Book 2 by Ilsa J. Bick

It is a good collection of short stories/novelettes to read and I have enjoyed myself reading it during Dark Saturday.
