There's only one bookstore (secondhand) on the strip off Borocay beach, and the pickings are pretty slim. This looked promising but is actually one of the lesser Trek novels I've read, eschewing action for lots of talking. Too much Troi and Riker, not enough Data. Interesting if familiar setup - another one of those Prime Directive-pooing peace-keeping deals, an obvious metaphor for UN/US intervention in any number of conflicts. If only the UN/US were as unselfish (and wily) as Jean-Luc Picard. ...more

An interesting premise that doesn't have the payoff I wanted.

While exploring an unknown area of space, the Enterprise picks up a blip of possible warp technology. Upon exploration they discover a world that's been preparing for invasion for hundreds of years. While meeting with these people, Picard is accused of working for the invaders who are close to invading the world. Back on board their ship, the Starfleet crew discover the invading ships, thousands of them. Two undercover away teams disc

Very good novel I like these kind of Star Trek novels where whichever crew it is they're smack bang in the middle of two alien races who in this novel are trying to annihilate each other. It was good to see picard getting both points of the two alien races as well. Overall very good author got the characters spot on the supporting characters were good as well. ...more

This was a good read, though not one of the best ST:TNG novels I've read. I do enjoy Riker & Deanna, but personally I would have liked a bit more Data. ...more

I always enjoy reading Star Trek, particularly ones about the Next Generation! They just take you to a different time and place!

A fine addition to an ever expanding Star Trek canon

Two races, the Krann and the Lethantana, have been at each other’s throat in a war that has extended over six millennia and two solar systems. The USS Enterprise and its crew, constrained by the regulations of the Prime Directive, are all that stands between two peoples, both on the edge of the discovery of warp drive technology and their apparently relentless push toward mutual annihilation.

As a long term fan of all things Star Trek with a par

A very interesting story. I think the author worried a little too much about the blocking in certain scenes but I think the technicality of the writing worked in his favour for the rest of the story. The way the aliens in the story talked I found rather humorous and different which I enjoyed. Without getting into it I liked the ending and how the conflict was resolved.

Now this was a pleasant surprise. A very Asimov-style bit of SF world building, combined with an archetypal TNG morality play. It's tied together by a solid command of the main characters, an interesting solution to the crisis, and an epilogue that leaves matters feeling rather a style more akin to DS9. Overall, a strong entry into the TNG novel canon. ...more
The plot and concepts on the whole were interesting, despite a number of incongruities in the plot. In particular, Worf of all people should understand millennia-long revenge. On the whole, though, I found this to be an above-average TNG novel.

For anyone who likes a good StarTrek novel, this one is a good read, it has first contact and galactic issues all in one book.

I think it could have been better...
Two races are at war, and have held the hatred for thousands of years. The Enterprise tries to help. A different sort of story for this series, a bit more serious than normal. Troi, Picard and Riker are spotlighted in this one. A good read.

Very fun. Wait.... there IS NO episode!? Darn.
Jimmy Pedersen
Yet another Star Trek story and not a bad one at that. I liked it and swallowed it in 3 dayes. The ending however I thought was a bit thin and VERY quickly done.
