I got a big kick out of this book. It's an easy, light-hearted read -- I read it in the tub in just a few nights and it was so fun, I ended up in the tub a lot longer than I meant to! Unlike some books in this series, which can be more novel-ish, this book totally has a ST:TNG episode vibe, the author really nailed it. It's got some serious parts, some fight scenes, and some funny scenes that I really enjoyed.
One of my favourite parts was when Geordie and Alexander were exchanging 'racist' ligh...more

It was good--like many Star Trek novels, this was a quick read more or less on par with watching an episode on TV. In other words, it was entertaining and pleasant, maybe even something the reader would like to see through to the end without undue interruption, but nothing life-changing.

Besides, I wanted to hide in a bit of fiction, and the library's closed on Sundays, so I pulled it out to reread last night. Can't we pleeeeasssse restore real, healthy funding to our libraries? If Osterhout had...more

A really good TNG novel involving a world enslaved by the Ferengi at the behest of a mysterious foe. The story is pretty balanced between the main characters and though it contains a significant Wesley subplot, he isn't annoying. One of the cryogenically frozen 20th century survivors from the first season TNG episode "The Neutral Zone" returns as an ambassador with amusing results. A new female crew member named Shrev of the fascinating Zhuik species (bee-like humanoids) was probably my favorite...more

Not great, but not awful. Predictable and way too many uses of 20th century references. Also detected some cross sci-fi mojo with the creatures talking like yoda….3.5/5

The ferengi's are up to something and an unusual ambassador is sent to deal with them. Kind of a sequel to a tv episode because the ambassador is the money obsessed 20th century person they rescued, it helps him understand the ferengi. A good read, oh and Wesley is in it a lot.

I was wonderfully surprised that I really liked this book! The characters all fell into place and you got to know Worf a little. This is book #30 in the series.
