Format: Kindle Edition
With everything from engineering issues, to super powerful beings, planets to discover and clues to put together that lead to a satisfying finish, this is classic Star Trek at it's best. The writer knows his Trek characters well and includes references to past exploits to shape behaviour. With Scottie, the STNG crew and a few Reg Barclay moments in the mix, this book is enjoyable.

I gave it 4 stars because of its rather drawn out ending - it could have finished about a chapter or two earlier - and because sometimes it oversimplifies conversation - using conversation as a device to explain things almost in a text book fashion (much like early Heinlein) - and romantic relationships are very oversimplified - but what Trek book (excluding Imzadi), does romance well? Finally, the 3 main ideas that run through this book could have been made into 2 Star Trek books rather than 1 and I feel it would have made a better 2-parter series which was slightly longer and made more of it's ideas.

Overall, it is a good read, fast paced and with plenty of twists and turns. Hence the 4.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I read the back of the book I thought: this sounds great !
But it was a bit of a disappointment. The plot started out ok, but became a bit unbelievable in the end.
And the characters... they threw a lot of them together from all over the series, in itself a bit unbelievable, especially with Reg and Nog.
And the so called romance between Geordi and Leah... The mention some feelings from Geordi and before you know it, it's in the bag ? I actually thought I forgot to read a chapter or something because I had the distinct feeling I had missed something...
Basically the book starts with a good idea but it seems the writer didn't know what to do with it, which is a real pity.
Like some of the other reviewers say: a good editor could have made a world of difference !

A great new book for the continuation of the start trek world. The book was well written and made for a interesting read. The end of the book was a bit sad; but I wont spoil it; but the good old ST:TNG crew are there minus a few of the main characters we have got to known.

A must for all star trek fans!

Although set around the same time as the Typhon Pact novels, this is definitely a stand-alone piece and, although billed as a Next Gen novel it actually features characters from nearly all the TV series. This unfortunately contributes to it's major weakness which is that it comes across as a bit of a mish-mash with, arguably, a number of the more minor characters from TNG, DS9, Voyager and even TOS coming together to form an expert crew of engineers and other tech-heads.
This novel seems to have an identity crisis as it doesn't appear to know what it actually is. The main story revolves around Geordi LaForge, who is seconded off the Enterprise and at long last receives his own Captaincy near the start, only to have it sort of taken away near the end. The first half of the book comes across as a regular "pursue bad alien who has stolen Starfleet property" type story, whereas the second half becomes almost surreal in places with the crew looking for propulsion trails and Klingon devil ships that may, or may not actually exist, Then the Romulans become involved (no less a character than Sela, Head of the Tal Shiar and daughter of Tasha Yar!) and they all find themselves stranded on some strange gravitational anomaly half way to the Andromeda Galaxy, being attacked by the zombiefied remains of the dead crew of Geordi's mother's old ship which disappeared years previously! Stay with me... The final icing on the cake was the demise (almost on the last page) of a Star Trek stalwart, though was that door left open just a teeny weeny, incy-wincy little bit? Maybe not, judge for yourself...
Overall, worth a read if only for novelty value and if you can suspend disbelief in a few places. Beware also a hyper-abundance of tech-speak (they are a crew of engineers after all) so go with the flow and don't even try to pretend you understand the geeky stuff. Just enjoy this little anomaly, Captain....
