Product Description

Product Description

The Hidran race and the Klingon Empire have been at each other's throats for seventy years, and Captain Jean-Luc Picard has been asked to do the near-impossible: take the U.S.S. Enterprise™ to the planet Velex to mediate a treaty that will end the conflict between these two aggressive species. Things get off to a rocky start -- then turn deadly as the Hidran ambassador mysteriously dies, and kills a Klingon delegate as a last act of vengence.
When Lt.Worf is charged with the ambassador's assassinaton, and Commander Riker and Counselor Troi are trapped far below the surface of the planet, Captain Picard must not only act to save the Hidranas and Klingons from each other, but to save his Klingon officer from a hideous death sentence...

5.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs up! 25 Nov 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought that this book was a good read. The mystery in this book is built up very suspensefully, and the pay-off was great. It fit my definition of a good mystery, and that's what made it so enjoyable to me. Also, Captain Picard's triade at the end of the book was very well done. I could easily visualize Picard saying those lines on my TV. The conflict, and how each persons get out of their situtations, were played up very well.
My only minor quabble with this book was some word choices and the structuring of sentences. But that comes more from my experiences as a writer and reader than anything else. It's just a matter of style preferences.
I'd highly recommend this book for anybody who loves a good mystery and some slam-blam action.

4.0 out of 5 stars ST-TNG: Foreign Foes 20 April 2003
By Joe Zika - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Star Trek-The Next Generation: Foreign Foes written by Dave Galanter and Greg Brodeur is a Captain Jean-Luc Picard solving a mystery and bring peace to two warring parties book.
For seventy years the Hidran and the Klingon Empire have been fighting a war with neither side gaining the advantage, but now Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the Enterprise crew are sent to negotiate a peace. While on the planet Velex to mediate a treaty, Picard has his hands full as Worf is charged with the murder of the Hidran ambassador. And while inspecting a field of some new grain, Troi and Riker get trapped in an underground chamber with machenery attacking them.
The story with both plots is written well and you really get into the flow of the book, making for a very enjoyable read. There is mystery and intrigue to pique your interest and there is good character development.
This is a Picard and crew mediate peace between two warring parties book with a good sub plot, making for a fast read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good plot, somewhat weak writing. 9 July 2006
By James Yanni - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The story is a good one, if not a great one, with a basic premise only slightly more dubious than the general run of Star Trek stories. The writing leaves a bit to be desired; it isn't terrible by any stretch of the imagination; the characterizations are good to excellent, the pacing is not at all bad, the dialogue neither noticeably bad or exceptional. So if, unlike this reviewer, you aren't a stickler for detail, you might consider this a somewhat above average bit of writing. But there are numerous places in which the word choice, spelling, and other detail -- detail that SHOULD be caught by the editing and proofreading before a book goes to print -- is rather sloppy. Several places, for instance, where the word "breath" is used as a verb rather than "breathe". One where the word that is clearly intended is "planet", and what is said is "plant". (If it was within his power, this conflict would not leave the plant." Or an instance of the mangled syntax "He wasn't been able to use communications until just a few minutes ago." At least one, and possibly more, instances of using "passed" when what was intended was "past". (The...craft shook as torpedoes sped passed her...". Other instances in which there is simply a word missing in the middle of a sentence. I suppose to be fair I should say that my complaint is with the editing, not the writing, but a writer should do a certain amount of his or her own editing. This book was just too sloppy to rate highly, which is a shame because the story was good.
4.0 out of 5 stars Yay! A ST: TNG book where everyone gets something to do! 26 Aug 2003
By Napoleon Dynamite - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Don't be fooled by the cover: this Star Trek book is evenly distributed so that every character gets a chance to do something, a refreshing change from the usual Picard/Data focus.
The Enterprise arrives at a neutral planet to mediate negotiations between the warring Klingon and Hidran empires. Picard mangages to get the two talking, but of course, this is the Enterprise: things are bound to go wrong. When a Hidran delegate is murdered, Worf is accused as the assassin, with Picard left trying to defend him. Meanwhile, Riker and Troi go missing after taking a shuttle to investigate some odd communication discrepancies, Data gets completely paranoid about Klingon spies, Geordi is REALLY blind, and Beverly attempts to hold together the ship. Whew, with so much action going on, the author does a surprisinglly great job holding together a cohesive storyline, keeping audiences captive.
My favorite line of the book is Picard's thought after assigning Crusher to command the ship in his absence, "She wasn't his first choice, but everyone else was either under arrest, missing, blind, or insane." :) Anyway, its a great book, with some funny bits and enough action to satisfy anyone. My only quibble was the sudden resolution, which didn't seem to do the rising action of the book justice. Despite this, it is one of the better ST: TNG books I've read and would recommend it to any fan.
5.0 out of 5 stars Not just onother cheesey series 24 Jun 2006
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
most of series with lots ofbooks are cheesey and bad. this one isn't. It is true to star trek with all the characters and star trek like situations. In it the klingons and the hindran hate each other. But when Picard is sent to try and make peace on hidra a klingon ship decloaks above hidra. Picard tries to take advantage by making the two races come toghether but that makes it worse. A hidran ambassador mysteriosly dies and kills a klingon as a last act of vengence and even worse Worf is charged with the murder. Also a wounded Riker and Troi are trapped in a mysterios place. How could this possibly turn out right? (it is kind of cheesy in the disription on the back cover of the book but it really is good)
