Yeah.... I really love Star Trek novels. This tale, about freewheeling 24th century pirates and a plot by the Romulan Empire, is not trying to be anything more than a fast-moving thriller that provides that sweet, sweet nudge to the guilty pleasure point in the brain.

This is a Next Gen adventure that held my attention throughout. I won't get into the details of the plot but I loved how Picard and the crew were faced with a strategic problem and a race against time.

The story is about a planet, near the Neutral Zone, being wooed by the Romulans, though already part of the Federation. There is also a pirate vessel that is a salvaged Constitution class federation vessel and can cloak, so there's an obvious tie to the Romulans there. The pirate captain, "Blaze", is pretty g ...more
Pirates are causing trouble and the Romulans are involved somehow. A quick paced thriller mainly involving Riker. Some amusing bits when he's undercover, and I could see this being an episode.

An entertaining little story that forgets the laws of plausibility from time to time. All the politics and diplomatic stuff are quite enjoyable though.

One of the better TNG novels. Quick pace, little bit of cyberpunk flavor in areas. Worth the read.
