Résumé :
Ael T-Rlailiiu est une fière guerrière Romulienne, belle, noble et dangereuse. Impitoyable sur le champ de bataille, elle ne peut en revanche admettre que des Vulcains capturés par l'Empire servent de cobayes à des manipulations génétiques. Elle accomplit alors l'impensable : passe à l'ennemi, demandant l'aide de Jim Kirk pour raser le laboratoire où se déroulent des horreurs sans nom. Les deux adversaires d'hier deviennent des frères d'armes ; au respect qu'ils se ... >Voir plus

Il est possible qu'entraînée par l'enthousiasme, j'ai eu la main un tout petit peu lourde sur les citations issues de Ennemi, mon frère. Que j'ai d'ailleurs lu sous sa version d'origine, My Enemy, my Ally. Il faut dire que c'est un excellent roman Star Trek, que les fans de la série liront avec énormément de plaisir.
Comme souvent dans ce genre de cas, les gens n'ayant jamais vu Star Trek seront probablement bien perdus et se sentiront plus renseignés sur les Romuliens que sur la Fédération, ou sur Ael t'Rllaillieu, le principal personnage introduit, que sur Kirk ou Spock. L'effort fait par l'auteur pour construire une civilisation entière fait du livre une vision très intéressante sur les Romuliens, différente apparemment de ce qui sera développé plus tard dans TNG. C'est plein de petits détails qui finissent par former toute une culture de façon assez convaincante. Et puis on retrouve les Horta, la forme de vie à base de silicone de The Devil in the Dark !
J'ai aussi trouvé agréable pour une fois qu'on nous épargne l'éternelle bluette Kirl/le personnage féminin du jour. Personnage féminin du jour d'ailleurs tellement plus intéressante que le modèle habituelle: plus âgée (pourquoi l'espace ne semble t il peuplé que de bimbos de 20 ans dans la SF?) , un véritable personnage avec son passé, ses propres décisions, parfois terribles, pour une fois pas simplement un faire valoir pour les mâles héros de l'Enterprise.
Un scénario avec pas mal de suspens , de rebondissements, porté par une galerie de personnages secondaires intéressants complète le tout et en fait une lecture qui m'a enthousiasmée, que les fans de Star Trek apprécieront.

"Nothing to report but still more hydrogen ion-flux measurements in the phi Trianguli corridor. Entirely too many ion-flux measurements, according to Mr. Chekov, who has declared to the Bridge at large that his mother didn't raise him to compile weather reports. (Must remember to ask him why not, since meteorology has to have been invented in Russia, like everything else.)

"Mr. Spock is 'fascinated' (so what else is new?) by the gradual increase in the number and severity of ion storms in this part of the Galaxy.

[....]

However, even Spock has admitted to me privately that he looks forward to solving this problem and moving on to something a little more challenging. His Captain agrees with him. His Captain is bored stiff. My mother didn't raise me to compile weather reports, either.

" Captain," the calm voice came back, " our new patrol-information dispatches just received from Star-fleet this past hour include news of two armed rebellions, a plague, and a mail strike; various natural disasters attributed to acts of Deity, and unnatural ones attributed to inflation, accident and the breakdown of diplomacy; seventeen mysterious disappearances of persons, places or things; both with and without associated distress calls; eight newly discovered species of humanity, three of which have declared their intention to annex Starfleet and the Federation, and one of which has announced that it will let us alone if we pay it tribute. And probably most serious of all, a tribble predator has gotten loose from the zoo in a major city on Arcturus VI, and for lack of its natural prey has started eating peoples' cats."

Jim paused. "Well, Mr. Spock," he said, very seriously, it's going to take us at least a week to get all that cleared up. I think we'd better get out there and get started, don't you?"

"Liking. Well. Brothers may certainly develop it. It may make living with one another easier. But it's hardly necessary to brotherhood proper. Say my brother and I quarrel; then he falls in danger of his life.
Do I let him lie there, because I no longer 'like' him? Or do I save him—simply because he is my brother, because I have said that he is forever someone important to me—and I'm bound by what I have said?"

"I'm not sure that's what I meant."

"Neither am I. But in any case it is mnhei'sahe . The bondage beyond reason, beyond hope or pain or escape. The bond that not even betrayal can break—only snarl around the heart until the betrayer's heart scars. The bond of word, of choice. Unbreakable."

"Death—"

"Death avails nothing against it. Your parents, your own brother who is dead—oh, yes, we know. What use is intelligence but for the knowing of one's enemies? Have you come to love your relatives any less for their being dead? Or perhaps more?"

The Captain said nothing.

Jim heard Rihaul sit down with the usual bizarre noise in her bowl chair, and had to repress a laugh again. Deirr weren't really wet—their smooth, slick skin just looked that way, and in contact with some surfaces, acted that way. Rihaul had been complaining since the long-ago days at the Academy, where Jim was her math tutor, that the Fleet-issue plastic bowl-chairs were the bane of her existence; sitting down in one invariably produced noises that almost every species considered embarrassing, and getting up against the resultant suction required mechanical assistance, or a lot of friends. Nowadays Nhauris and Jim had a running joke that the only reason she had become a Captain was to have a command bowl-chair that was upholstered in cloth.

That war had been won on another front, at Organia. But Suvuk, even after being physically tortured, and then subjected to the Klingon mind-sifter, had still, in rapid succession, broken free of his captors on the Klingon flagship Hakask at Regulus; disabled the ship's warp-drive and melted down its impulse engines, strewing unconscious, injured, and occasionally dead Klingons liberally along the way as he went; made solid-logic copies of everything of interest in the Klingons' library computers, then dumped the computers themselves; and had finally made it back aboard the newly-built Intrepid in a stolen Klingon shuttlecraft, well before the Organians' ban fell and both Klingons and Federation suddenly found their weapons too hot to handle.
