In Vornholt I may have found my least favorite author of Star Trek lit. I TRUDGED through this, only because I wanted to read Peter David's volume five of this series. I didn't care what happened, the characters and dialogue did not ring true, and I was not a fan of the writing.

Again we have another decent Star Trek book and again one that I'm not entirely happy with. I do not know why I did not like this one as much as I thought I should have except that it may have been too long. We have in this novel the sort of things I like about Trek books--minor, yet intriguing characters that needed more fleshing out from the TV series, and a spotlight on events that happened off camera (like the circumstances surrounding Tom Riker's joining the Maquis). However, at the end, I ...more

When I first began reading this I thought that I just didn't like stories using the characters from the "new" Star Trek series. But as I got toward the end I began to say to myself phrases such as "Huh?", "That doesn't make sense", "Where did that come from". So perhaps I was wrong. Maybe I just didn't like this writer. I'll still finish the six-book series, but this book was by far the weakest so far.

This book explains why Tom Riker joined the MArquis, it also spotlights on 3 of the voyaer crew. Again not really a TNG book. The Marquis find a planet in the DMZ that has a plague and nobody is doing anything to help, they decide to do what they can. An interesting story, with a different type of alien species (where blending is everything). A good read but not a TNG book.

This one was the weakest of the series so far. muddles plot, lack of resolution and unlikable characters made this book pretty tough to get through. I expected better from this author.

Recommends it for: fans of Tom Riker, Chakotay, B'Elanna and the Maquis...who aren't looking for anything mindblowing
Not a bad read, but a big missed opportunity. This book not only tells us how Tom Riker joined the Maquis, but places him in the lead trio alongside Chakotay and B'Elanna... but barely has them interact, and tells us virtually nothing new about any of these characters. To boot, the main plot was mind-bogglingly boring.

On the other hand, it was a nice quick read, and there was nothing in it that I found "wrong." Tuvok's dialogue was odd, but I could chalk it up to his winning espionage skills. (

I think I would rate this one 3.5 stars if I could because it is a little better than the ones I usually rate 3 stars but I just couldn't justify four. I think this started off really well with Tom Riker dealing with living in the shadow of his other self and trying to find a niche for himself in the galaxy. I enjoyed how he found the Maquis and that whole plot line. It's the convoluted and boring stuff on Helena that really lost me. All the diplomacy stuff they had to do was uninteresting and a ...more

"Meeting a Maquis captain isn't usually considered a great honor."

This brilliantly written book charts another instance of the dreaded double helix disease from the unlikeliest of viewpoints - Chakotay, during his time with the maquis. Clearly, the bulk of this thing takes place before Voyager's pilot, and all the usual suspects (Torres, Tuvok, Seska etc) are firmly in place. Seeing the Maquis on Humanitarian work not involving themselves is a far cry from their televised portrayal as well as th

This book was better than I thought it would be. Like I said on the previous book in this series, Star Trek books can be hit or miss and I expected this one to be a miss. It wasn't. Not as good as book 3 in the series, but much better than the first two books. The only downside of this novel is that there really wasn't much focus on the actual plague that was the genesis of the series. It's there, but I didn't see any real advancement of the plague plot, such as who's behind it, or how they're g ...more

Not a bad story, it suffers from the fact that I was getting tired of the series by book 2 of 6. If I had read it as a stand-alone, I would probably have rated it four stars; it's a tolerable genre story telling the beginning of Tom Riker's association with the Maquis; it has action, drama, and characterization, but as book four of six in a series that really has no business being a six-book series, it suffers on the originality front, as well as the predictability front.

The Double Helix set was one of the first group of ST novels I read...they must be good, because I've read a couple hundred since.
