This is one of the best Star Trek books I've ever read. Not only does it have technical information, it also has a compelling storyline. It's quite a heavy read but It's worth it. If you want a Star Trek book buy this!

STNG #39 Rogue Saucer - A truly exceptional numbered novel! 1 Dec 2003
By K. Wyatt - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Rogue Saucer" is, without a doubt, one of the best numbered novels in the Star Trek The Next Generation novel series. This exceptional novel was written by John Vornholt who, over the years, has proven himself to be one of the most consistently wonderful authors in the Star Trek genre. As with any of his other previous novels, "Rogue Saucer" once again reaffirms John Vornholt's extraordinary writing skills, from the exciting premise and the plot setup and execution to the fast pace, this novel scores in all areas.
As was standard for the time in which this novel was published, the cover art for "Rogue Saucer" is somewhat lackluster but it doesn't detract from the experience of the novel.
The premise:
This novel has some obvious influence from Star Trek "Generations," but it is placed shortly after the events in the seventh season's "Preemptive Strike."
The Enterprise's saucer section is put in "dry dock" for some needed repairs and the crew of the Enterprise is given the opportunity to test an experimental saucer, marrying it up with the primary hull. Before the command crew of the Enterprise, aboard the experimental saucer section, can get hooked up with the engineering hull, it is hijacked by the Maquis, in hopes of hijacking the primary hull of the Enterprise and using her against the Cardassians in the DMZ.
What follows from there is, as stated above, one of the best numbered novels in the STNG novel line. I truly enjoy how John Vornholt can bring in guest characters and use them so well, such as he did with this novel and Admiral Nechayev.
I highly recommend this and any other John Vornholt Star Trek novel as you will most certainly find in your hands, some of the best Star Trek fiction available! {ssintrepid}

twists and turns 31 May 2002
By "bartttt" - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a good story, but the number of twists and turns reduces its credibility. The basic story is predictable from the title and the early introduction of the Maquis, but the details and the twists are not predictable. However, ignoring a few minor typos and inconsistencies, it is an entertaining story. See other reviews for parts of the plot.

Very good, almost like an episode 5 Feb 2012
By Ac - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Of the recent star trek books I have read, all of them try to play out too much like a novel, too much like part of a series, this book however is very much so a stand-alone story (just like most of the episodes) and is very interesting and a very fun read. It really does feel like one of the episodes, and is worth reading if your interested in rekindling what it was like to sit down and watch a new episode of this great series.

Enjoyable 17 Jun 2010
By Timothy Callahan - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Never been a big fan of the Star Trek novels, I've read more bad ones than good but when there were a bunch of Next Generation novels selling at a book fair for 50 cents each I figured, what the heck.
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the book. It had a really rough start, didn't really enjoy the writing of the first three chapters but as the story progressed I found it a fun read. Some of the surprises weren't really that surprising. I do wish the author had went with the "well, I don't foresee us landing the saucer section on planet anytime soon" joke only once, instead we get it at least three times. Okay, I get it, it was amusing the first time but just eye roll educing the others.
So, in short, if you find this book at book fair for 50 cents it's well worth it.

Excellent story. 2 Aug 2007
By James Yanni - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
One of the best of the Next Generation stories; the basic concept is deeper and more serious than most, dealing as it does with the conflicted emotions that most Federation and Starfleet folk feel toward the Maquis and the difficult concept of being required by honor to help the Cardassains suppress the Maquis, but feeling on some level that doing so puts one on the side of the oppressors. This story does a good job of exploring that dichotomy, as well as showing how desperation, anger, and hatred can warp otherwise honorable Maquis into behaving as true villains.
The characterizations are excellent, the pacing is good, there is plenty of action and plenty of food for thought. All in all, an excellent story, handled well.
