The storyline of this book is well documented in other reviews, so I won't rehash it here.

The strength of this book is the new alien race introduced. I feel that they were well thought out and executed. Their motives were not at cross purposes to intelligent plotting, and you wound up with a legitimate question as to whether one of the alien crew is a heroic visionary or just psychotic ... and that was very interesting.

However, the book was not completed. The cliff hanger at the end is unnecessary and very frustrating. We didn't find out the answer about the alien crew member, nor the consequences of her actions. I've just started reading this series, and I have no idea where to go for the rest of the story, nor even if there IS anywhere to go for it.

Most of the actions and thoughts of the Enterprise crew made sense. However, after the aliens destroyed a Klingon ship that was about to destroy the Enterprise, I think the author had the Enterprise officers doing a bit too much hand wringing about why the aliens finished off the ship. That motif is much more appropriate in the Next Gen setting than a TOS setting.

Another quibble is that the author has Spock figuring out the coordinates of Starfleet HQ to "set" the gateway to open to it. Considering that Starfleet HQ is on a planet that is rotating about its axis, and is revolving around a star which is constantly in motion relative to the rest of the galaxy (at 132 miles per second), having even Spock do this "in his head" is more than a reach.

Finally, the author placed the Enterprise crew in the midst of a fascinating setting. However, their interactions and discoveries in that setting were decidedly pedestrian. A little more imagination and fun factor was needed there.

The book is well worth a read for a TOS fan. However, I don't recommend reading it unless you already know where to go to finish the storyline.

Note: With some research after writing the above, I found that all of the Gateways books have cliff hanger endings. The endings are all wrapped up in the 7th book. Essentially this was a scam to keep everyone hooked on the series, and in the end to buy an extra book that you shouldn't really need to. The 7th book is essentially the last chapter(s) of each of the first six. So you can safely read this book if you also have book 7, and go directly from the last page of this book to the concluding installment of it in book 7, without reading books 2 through 6 first.

Sadly, the climax of the story in Gateways 7 was not as well thought out as the first of the story here in Book 1. Kirk's ultimate escape makes little sense. It seems that an alien civilization that has been spacefaring for generations, at least, does not possess hand weapons or emergency internal communications in their most important city. They also somehow made an unconscious decision to begin communicating in English, a language unknown to all but one of them, the moment Kirk became a fugitive on their planet.

This is what often happens when an author writes themself into a corner and lacks the originality, energy, or wit to make sure that their finale makes sense.

So full of action and suspense! Completes "That Which Survives," and moves to something even better! The characters are right up to TOS standards and go even further .

Horrible! Wish I could say something positive but it was bad and the ending is poor.

This novel is based on the Original Series episode which had Lee Merriwhether as the guest star. To briefly recap the story: The Enterprise crew discovers a long deserted planetoid/space station. A landing party explores. The group runs into a holographic projection of a beautiful woman that is able to kill with a touch. Capt. Kirk and company find a solution. The computer projection is a relic of a long lost civiliztion. They were the Kaladans.
"One Small Step" picks up where this installment ended. The Enterprise crew members are doing clean up operations. While exploring, the Enterprise is attacked by Klingons. They are almost defeated and destroyed by them. At the last minute they are saved by a small ship, coming out of nowhere, that blows the Klingon vessel to smithereens. The saviors claim to be the descendants of the Kaladans. Kirk is skeptical of this assertion.
What was best about the novel? The author did not depart from the characterizations of the first series. It's very annoying when a writer tries to make Spock fall in love or have Captain Kirk not pay attention to the ladies. This is not done. The plot had the linear progression that is expected of Star Trek novels. The ending had a believable cliffhanger.
What did I like least about the novel? There is a trend in Trek writing to have novels chopped up into as many as six different books. In many cases two novels could be combined as one. Gateways is the latest series to be chopped up into sequels. This is a rip off. The author did depart in one sense from the Original Series. It seemed the Enterprise Crew were viewing the Klingons with Next Generation sensibilities. In the Original Series they probably would have been estatic that someone saved them from being target practice. Instead they are puzzled and a little contrite. They hadn't yet given Kahless a second look. As far as Jim Kirk was concerned, Kahless was another Genghis Khan.
I was able to finish the book within the week. There's nothing I hate worse than reading in a ST novel, the aliens are going to take over the universe, but due to plodding prose and silly tangents, you really don't care. You don't mind getting back to it the next year.
A key reason "One Small Step" doesn't get a lot of stars is that this is not a stand alone novel. You will have to shell out more money for part 2 or hope your public library has it. Overall, this was an OK read.
