Product Description

Amazon Review

J.M. Dillard is a veteran of Star Trek novelisations, having written them for the last five films. Her latest, Star Trek: Insurrection, finds her in fine form. The film is much lighter in tone than the last Next Generation offering, First Contact, and Dillard captures this relaxed mood well, transferring the humour from screen to page with a sure touch. The plot moves at a good pace as Picard and crew attempt to protect a group of peaceful Ba'ku villagers from the sinister alien Son'a and Starfleet's Admiral Dougherty, who is being less than candid about his mission. The planet has a rejuvenating effect on everyone who lands there, and this is what the Son'a, a dying race, are after. Dillard deepens the complexity of Dougherty's character, and fills in more of the background of the Ba'ku and Son'a peoples than the film had time for. The book diverges slightly from the screen version in places, presumably because Dillard was working from an earlier version of the script, but at least this means that here, Picard and Anij get to kiss one another! For those who enjoyed the film, this is a good way of fixing it in the memory, and it works as an exciting novel in its own right. --Elizabeth Sourbut

J.M. Dillard has with, Star Trek: Insurrection done another great job of novelizing a movie! I always approach novelizations with a little skepticism as far as what's put on page between the scenes on screen. That said, I don't really do that with her work. She captures the spirit of the film perfectly and puts some really good scenes in that we don't see on film. Thank you to the author for another great novelization! {ssintrepid}

This book is excellent!! Right from opening the packaging to looking at the sleek cover, to opening and reading the first page, then to the last, I was amazed, the plot flows smoothly and it feels as if, you can actually feel what the characters feel. The book also goes more deeper into characters than the film, which is good, since it allows a wider scope of the whole story. Loved it!! A great addition to the Star Trek franchise

THe Cinema Version is nothing compared to the book 5 Mar. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The book starts quite boring, but when once you've reached chapter 2-3 it starts to get quite good,
This book has sceens in it that were not in the cinema release version, ie in the library with Riker & Troi, getting thrown out of the library.
I'd like to say, that this book makes the film.
Yes I admit it I didn't quite like the cinema version but the book, well It's very good

Brilliant 3 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Well, she's done it again. J.M. Dillard has written another brilliant novelisation, and she really dserves credit for it. The characters were portrayed very well, and she kept to the script for the most part, adding in her own parts about the characters, Anjj, the So'na, and Worf. Although her version of the story deviated somewhat from the movie version, this is probably due to the fact she was working with an earlier script, but it didn't change the book much. Personally, I really liked it, but one part in particular was the part involving Worf. In the movie he didn't play a very big role, just normal Worf with the exception of his .... physical troubles. But in the book Dillard wrote about Worf dreaming, and encountering K'Ehleyer, his former lover. I felt this was one of best insights into his character, with his old flame inslting his relationships after(Deanna Troi, Jadzia Dax). Anyway, I really liked that. The relationship between Riker & Deanna was done very well in film and novel, the novel simply putting thoughts beind their feelings, which I thought was good. Anyway, that's my opinion. On one last note, is anyone else slightly concerned TNG movies haven't found a 'focus' yet. I mean, TOS movies had a focus around Mr. Spock's death and return, but TNG has had none of this. I am deeply concerned about this, if anyone else is feel free to email me.

Not bad, but hum seen it all before. 17 Dec. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
The premise would make a fine end of season two parter , but a blockbuster movie I think not! A respected star-fleet captain goes renegade to protect a veritable Garden of Eden /Fountain of youth planet from exploitation from both the Federation and outside forces. Woahh! Excuse me didn't William Shatner already do this plot-line in his first Star Trek Novel: 'The Ashes of Eden'? Check it out; yes he did! And better too I might add. Lets stop beating around the bush First A Star Trek : Voyager: ; 'Mortal Coil' episode and now Star Trek 9 - Insurrection, pinching ideas and plotlines from the man who portrayed third Captain of the USS Enterprise. Anybody with half a 'Trek' brain can see it. In Voyager: The episode 'Mortal Coil' Neelix is revived from the dead by Borg nanite technology. A contrivance of William Shatner's to revive Captain Kirk in his book: 'The Return'. from his demise in the 7th Trek movie Generations. If they have any sense they'll adapt one of Kirk's books for the tenth film or do a crossover with some of the original Enterprise crew doing cameos.

The best of all the features! the odd movies usually bomb 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
I think this is the best Star Trek book and movie there will be and my reason is: I grew up in the 80's and I have really inspired the great job of acomplishments of this fine crew! my parents who grew up in the 50s and 60s liked the Orginal Series. my opinion is, its ok but I didnt grow up in that time so thats why i like the next generation. i rarely watch DS9 and very rare I watch voyager. Im sure Gene Roddenberry would be very proud of Rick Berman on what he has done since he has passed away nearly 9 years ago.
