This novel is packed...almost too packed, and I do have to say that I was far more invested in the Picard side of the story. That said, the rest of the novel is so full of plot, events, and characters that it's certainly never boring. I just wish some of it could have been hived off into a separate novel, as the Picard storyline is as intense and gripping as anything you'll find in a Trek novel. Where it all goes from here should be interesting indeed.

The United Federation of Planet’s military jurisprudence offers justice, or does it?

I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader’s copy of this book. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.

How can it be that Captain Picard is fallible – he’s Capt.-Always-Do-the-Right-Thing?! And thus, this st

Picard on Trial!

Captain Picard stands accused of sedition and conspiracy to commit murder! The shadows of Texas - from the A Time To series event that has been established as one of the pivotal events in the Star Trek Extended Universe - come to haunt Captain Picard as the collapse of Section 31 has brought some of the Federations darkest secrets to the light. With old allies re-emerging and new enemies rising, this book will be a new pivot point in the series, laying the foundations for 2020

A preliminary enquiry into Captain Picard's involvement in the Section 31 assassination of UFP President Mon Zife sees him having to defend himself against an angry Attorney General, Phillipa Louvois, who previously presided over his court martial for losing the 'U.S.S. Stargazer'.

In temporary command of the 'Enterprise', Worf finds himself facing off against Nausicaan Raiders who hold the Federation responsible for the loss of their homeworld during the Borg invasion.

As always pure pop corn reading following the crew of TNG past the series. Held my attention and served me Picardy and Worf goodness. All you really ask for out of this series.

Nice coda to the whole Section 31 episodes. Plus there's action, adventure, humor and more!

One of the best, if not THE best Star Trek books I've ever read. A great pay off for the story arc.

A trial
A doomsday weapon
A trapped people
and Geordi Laforge is....YEP!

Go read this thing!

An excellent read from start to finish. So much TNG nostalgia packed in along with bits from the previous TNG extended universe stories of the past 15 years. Fulfilling to see a conclusion and now onto the next adventure.

Good story. I expected more on the Picard front, but that was really only a small portion of the book. The rest was devoted to the Enterprise's efforts to save a planet and Starfleet Intelligence trying to keep Worf and the crew out of their business while a group of Nausicaans rampaged through the galaxy. Some great, funny moments. I enjoyed Riker's scenes as well as Worf's solution to the Nausicaan situation. His substitute second in command while LaForge was off ship was also terrific.

Just finished David Mack's latest Star Trek novel, Collateral Damage. I found myself grinning and even laughing out loud at some parts, on the edge of my seat during the military legal chapters, empathizing strongly with the surviving members of a species who felt they were abandoned by the Federation when their world was destroyed, and even tearful at a scene where someone is reminded of her dead son.

The species' plight echoed strongly that of the Palestinians, the Uighurs, and the

4.5 Stars. Very good and highly entertaining. Multiple story lines and they're all good, but the the court room drama in which Picard has to endure an official hearing that will determine whether or not he should have to face trial for his part in the events regarding the Tezwa debacle was fantastic. Worf also has some really great moments too as he is in command of the Enterprise while Picard is on Earth. All in all very well done and another big hit for David Mack.

Excellent read. A bit odd having two characters telling parts of the story in the first person, and the rest being told from third person perspective, but it doesn't get confusing.

Book Review - Star Trek The Next Generation Collateral Damage by David Mack

Continuing the adventures of Captain Jean Luc Picard and the crew of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-E, this book follows on from the previous book Available Light (which I read in July whilst on holiday).

This book is also linked to the Section 31 story Control (which I have not read, but have every intention of reading as soon as possible).

I won't spoil the story for those of you who like
