and so ends the series. This one was all right. A flashback/recreation from an original episode from the Kirk days.

Was hoping for a bit more as a conclusion to Picards beginnings but he got the girl (briefly) and of course as we all new his career is saved and Enterprise awaits.

All in all i enjoyed the series - it was a good break from my usual hack and slash fantasy readings.

This is a well-written, well-paced action story which is not particularly novel or original, which is an enjoyable read but is of little true value. If you have enjoyed the first 5 books of this sub-series detailing the early years of Captain Picard on the Stargazer, you will probably enjoy this one, but I wouldn't read it if you haven't read and enjoyed its predecessors. If you haven't read them, then you will find this book somewhat confusing as it refers back to events from previous books rat ...more

One could probably look at the seven (counting The Valiant) book series of the Stargazer series as the first season of a Star Trek show, in which case Maker was a decent season finale. Certainly all the books linked into each other, and this one did a nice job of tying up the loose ends. I was disappointed not to see Jack Crusher make an appearance in the series, but this was a neat look at Picard's first year as a Starfleet captain and his challenges at becoming one so young and quite inexperie ...more

A powerful alien hijacks a freighter, with Nikolas aboard, and steers it into Ubarrak space. Serenity Santana (from a prior book, the Valient) crosses the Galactic Barrier to hunt him down. Meanwhile, Captain Picard's competency hearing is looming.

This is the last book in the Stargazer series. I think the series just lost steam. I *loved* the first few, but the last few were meh.

I enjoyed this book, but it felt a bit rushed at the end. I do believe it was a decent end to the series...
