The Centurion's captain is Lucius Sejanus -- a powerful, magnetic man who favors taking a far stronger stance against the M'Dok than Captain Picard. And as the conflict escalates, S ...more

I love Romans, and Roman history, but this felt off. I can see why it would be appealing to have them interact with Picard and Co, but I can't buy into the historical aspect at all, especially since there would have been so many ways of making this plausible. I get the fact that the basic idea derives from TOS, but TOS did a lot of silly things, and this (just like "Miri", a very similar example) is one of them.

Was also distracted by the random introduction of Jenny, especially since we already

A 'blah blah' attempt to turn a mundane TOS episode (Bread & Circuses) into a mundane book; and the result is, yes you guessed it, 'mundane'.

One of the joy of reading Star Trek is, well, the many excitements of future possibilities, humanity and anything far far beyond. If I wanted to read about Romans or German war, I'd probably go for history section. By giving a warp-drive spaceship to some Romans doesn't make a good Science Fiction. It's just a ST-themed messy drama.

Blech.

On page 30 of 255 of The Captains' Honor and the Mary Sue and the Romans aboard the former Farragut were making me flinch already. The artist put a Japanese sword on the cover, not a Roman sword because it was cooler. Obviously, no one thought Romans would sell the book...

Ninjas would have been cooler. But there wasn't a single cool thing about this book, unless you're a little interested in the alternate history of Rome.

Not true to characters I know

Captain Picard does not ring true as well as word & some scenes, like a grieving ensign becoming romantic with a man right after her lover has died, just make no sense.

An odd TNG book, in that all the characters apart from Picard and Riker are sidelined. The author concentrates on his characters more, so that it doesn't really feel like a TNG book that much. It was a quick read.

An uninteresting plot with mundane "new" characters, meanwhile the Enterprise crew lifelessly strolled about the novel doing nothing, seriously, nothing. A terribly boring book... totally without honor.

Premise was interesting, but it went downhill from there. Having Magna Romans serve in Starfleet is certainly likely; having a complete ship for them in TNG era is not. The only ship run entirely by a specific race in was in TOS (the USS Intrepid, destroyed by the space Amoeba). By TNG that tradition seems to have been phased out. The Romans are far from "Starfleet normal" to be believable; none of the crew would have made it through the first year of the Academy as written.

In short, if this boo

If this book was made into an episode of Star Trek I think it would rank with the 'silly' episodes that pepper the catalogue. A race of aliens descended from cats? Well, I suppose it could happen... Another race (or two) descended - but not very far - from the ancient Romans?? Really? Star Trek always necessitates the viewer or reader suspending belief for the duration, and that is fine. That's what escapism is all about. Sometimes though, it goes a bit too far and that is the case with this nov ...more
