This book was more exciting than the first one and it definitely keeps to the feel of the show. The last paragraph was my favorite part.

See my comments on Book One of Maximum Warp for the concept behind the books.

In the second book, everything set up in the first book is set in motion as the Enterprise attempts to find out who or what is behind the bubbles appearing in space and interrupting technology to a massive extent. Cut off from Starfleet, Picard and crew attempt to inflitrate Romulan space, where the mass murderer T'sart claims the origin of the bubbles exists. But will they find the cause of the bubbles in time to stop

As anyone who has read more than a few of my reviews knows, I ALWAYS complain about a book that is missing either a beginning or an ending; I don't mind multi-part stories, so long as they have enough of a minor conclusion that they can, in fact, be read individually, even if a major plot-thread remains to be completed in the second book. (For example, most of the Harry Potter books had an internal plot that was completed within the book, even if the ongoing storyline remained unresolved; simila ...more

After the first "Maximum Warp" book, the second half of the duology starts off promisingly. The story holds together much better than in the first book, there are more interesting situations and even some sufficciently deepened character moments with both new and familiar characters.

But soon begins a downhill as plot gives it all away to action as long and uneventfull space battles and other action-packed scenes take over the story. The plot gets predictable and characterization is nearly forgot

The Enterprise is still trying to stop the dead zones. This is the 2nd book in the series, and you do need to have read the 1st to get what is going on. It is quite a short novel, kinda fun but very inconsequential. Riker, Deanna and Picard all have some nice character moments. Spock is still in it and shows off his scientific logic. A good read.

Only "decent" fare, this duet has an interesting premise, but the tension is achieved rather artificially. There are a few too many cameos (a failing of many trek novels), but it is done fairly plausibly.

Basically "dead zones" of null power are popping up all over the galaxy, and it's up to the Enterprise to save everyone! Can they possibly do it? Well, duh.

The first book was a little slow, but necessary to appreciate the second one. I loved the character of Tobin. He reminded me of the cosmonaut from the movie Armageddon".
