Very enjoyable TNG book with a little original Star Trek flavor. I enjoyed reading about Barclay as a primary secondary character. Plus, you get a little more information about Picard prior to the Enterprise (captain of the stargazer, Jack Crusher, Ben Zoma, etc.), as well as a little time travel…While reading, Friedman did a great job capturing the behaviors and mannerisms of the characters. Definitely in the top 5 of the TNG books I've read.

An interesting idea, if you went back in time, only a few days before a tragedy would you stop it? The Gorn are also in this book and it does tie in a bit with the original Star Trek series. A decent Picard story.
