I give it two stars just for the moments involving Data's pet feline, Spot.

This was a really fun and fast-paced read. It read like an episode, except for the fact that Picard never hesitated to "interfere" in this world's affairs. I mean, I agree with him in this book but usually he has more Prime Directive-related qualms. The plot was good and sort of suspenseful, I felt like I didn't want to stop reading until I found out what happened next. My only complaint would be not enough character moments (other than some great Geordi-Data-Spot interaction). Well, and that I ...more

The characterisation was off and the plot very predictable, but it was still entertaining.

A lot of Star Trek novels seem to be about, or use, Data as the main character. Perhaps it's because they can write Data as growing during the story, or they like having a character that is nearly always correct even if he's not always right.

The plot of the book isn't anything special. The computer of the Enterprise gets 'confused' (takes readings of an unknown phenomenon) and the crew (and Spot, Data's cat) find a dying civilization in the middle of a Nebula like thing. Of course, there is poli

Pretty good exploration and story about dual universes. Not a Mirror Universe book or at least not depicted as one. I like Gene DeWeese and his sometimes old fashioned sci-fi elements. There is potential for a second story or even a prequel, regarding the sleeper ship that left the planet and caught the Enterprises attention. Good characters and regard for mythology and DeWeese's dialogue is always credible and realistic. Only real complaint is the quick and tidy resolution but otherwise a great ...more

I have acquired quite a few bad paperbacks in recent months. Stuff that looks like it will be awesome pulpy fun...but is in fact just bad. So, I don't know if it's just my familiarity/nostalgia for the characters or actual good writing but I enjoyed this book. Solid.

A decent enough story with a planet getting killed by a 'plague' in the atmosphere with some alternative realities thrown in. My problem was the writing style is was just not that interesting, it didn't grab me which is odd because intellectually the story is good.

Decent TNG book. Good story, good build up. My only complaint was it seemed to be a splice of various TNG episodes merged into one. Not that it is a bad thing. For some reason, I even got a Fringe vibe from it….I wonder if JJ read this book? 4/5
