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.
Come prendere una delle mie puntate preferite della serie classica e costruirci un, tutto sommato, discreto romanzo con protagonista il cap. Picard, impegnato in missione diplomatica per stipulare un trattato con i Gorn.
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.

Michael has done a good job giving the back story to one of my favorite original series episodes. His writing is engaging and the story fits well into Star Trek cannon.

A good premise and fluid storytelling carry this novel far, but there is so much unutilized potential in this...
The Gorn! Captain Picard! Time travel! So much potential, so disappointingly "meh."
