I expected more from this. The plot premise is quite good but the reactions from the crew were (I felt) simplistic and out of character. They literally walked into the problem without their usual raising of potential problems. I also discovered a distinct christian theology that jarred and felt out of place in the dialogue - the characters were making exclamations they wouldn't have normally done. This isn't a drawback it is just not usual for the ST Universe.

About Surak while the comparison of his teachings and early behavior to a historical earth personage are interesting, I think it might have been better to contrast them in context a bit more and the character who was working out the "internal conflict" over behavior adnd outlook - has settled this in the series already. I'd rather have experienced Surak's life somehow in this book it would have made more sense.
