Eugenics Wars Volume 1, The (2001)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

Eugenics Wars Volume 1, The (2001) STAR TREK: THE EUGENICS WARS; The Rise and Fall of Khan Noonien Singh (2001). This is one damn cool book. If you're a STAR TREK fan, author Greg Cox deftly fits bits and pieces of the ST mythology together, from Gary Seven to the Ferengi crash-landing in Roswell in the 1940's. If you're not a huge TREK fan this still works like a complicated X-FILES episode. In 1974 an international consortium of the world's top scientists have created the Chrysalis Project, a secret experiment in human genetic engineering. Gary Seven, first introduced in the original Trek series, tries to prevent this tampering with humanity, knowing full well the dire consequences that could happen. Seven is a human whose ancestors have been trained by aliens during the past six thousand years, trained to be humanity's guardians/watchdogs, making sure mankind doesn't destroy itself before they're able to deal with their technology. He's assisted by Roberta, a young hippie woman. They manage to infiltrate Chrysalis after a lot of 007-type spy shenanigans and destroy it after they rescue all the hundreds of genetically engineered children, who are all perfectly fit geniuses. They disperse them through various adoption agencies so they could never get together and cause trouble. But one child stands out, Noon. They keep watch over him through the years and Gary Seven decides to start training him as an agent when he's in his late teens. But this backfires. Noon is too hot-headed and feels he's superior to normal humans. And he has no problem taking lives, unlike Seven who will not kill, no matter what. After their first disastrous mission Seven realizes he can't train the youth-and that Noon may become a threat. He does, in later years,-managing to break into Seven's computer and finding out the location of all the other genetically enhanced humans, presumably to build a new dynasty where they're in charge. Noon now wants to be called Khan (as in Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan). Author Greg Cox manages to weave factual world events into the fictional story, which hetakes it in directions you don't expect. This definitely has me primed for reading the next book in the series.
