Book Description

Captain Jean-Luc Picard, his ship repaired, must now reassemble his crew. With the departure of both William Riker and ship's counsellor Deannna Troi, the captain must replace his two most trusted advisors. He chooses a Vulcan, a logical choice, and for his new first officer, Worf. But the Klingon refuses the promotion and the new ship's counsellor appears to actively dislike Worf. A simple shake-down mission should settle everything. Except that once again, the captain hears the song of the Borg collective. Admiral Janeway is convinced that the Borg have been crushed and are no longer a threat. Picard believes she is wrong, and that if the Enterprise doesn't act the entire Federation will be under the domination of its most oppressive enemy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Almost entirely disappointing 15 Feb. 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After looking forward to reading this book, I was disappointed by almost every aspect of it. The story has a general interest to it, but it's marred by a fundamental misunderstanding of the established nature of the characters. None of the characters we're used to (Picard, Worf, Crusher, LaForge, even the Borg) have been written in a way that truly reflects their personalities and their behaviour. Picard especially is full of turns of phrases that you would never expect from proper Star Trek writers in a million years. This reflected on the characters original to this book, for me, as I couldn't believe the author was capable at all of portraying apt characterisations (with the possible exception of T'Lana, the counsellor).

Add to this some ignorance about the established facts of Star Trek, such as calling Picard's heart human (not artificial) and wrongly quoting a sequence of events from First Contact that appeared to be very important to the character internally describing them, this made for a book whose writing and continuity were poor. The only saving grace is a reasonably compelling story; although for it to be told, past Star Trek novels, films and television, and what they have told us, had to be battered.

Being fairly new to the world of Star Trek books I did not entirely know what to expect. I had heard about how the books had improved, and being a fan of the TV series wanted to give them a go.

This was a good start to the post-Nemesis range, currently waiting to read the one before this - but I don't seem to have missed too much other than the Picard/Crusher get together. It has a nice story attached to the Borg and in the scenes where characters are on the Borg cube the way they are described is actually quite 'chilling'.

I have read that some feel Dillard's characterization is off but I do not agree that this is the case. Worf is perhaps the best portrayed and the link back to his feelings about his deceased wife from the television series DS9 is beautifully woven into this story and his reasons for not wanting to take the promotion offered by Picard. Dillard's recounting of the events from the television episode are not 100% accurate (especially the wording used by Jadzia and Sisko) as I have only recently seen this episode. Worf's experiences with the new counselor, T'Lana is nicely portrayed, from both sides.

T'Lana, Nave and Lio are nice additions to the characters (not sure how much the latter 2 characters have appeared in the previous books but I like them here). This sets up the relationship that T'Lana will have with the senior staff early on - quite a contrast to Troi. Geordi gets almost no time, he is used a back up a lot of the story which is a shame. Beverley is nicely portrayed here bringing out her strength but off-setting this against her love for Picard - nice to see.

1.0 out of 5 stars Weak and poorly written 3 Sept. 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Seems like The Next Generation books are going to be tied together in an ongoing continuity much as DS9 books are.

Set some time after the events of Star Trek Nemesis, with the Enterprise now fully repaired from the damages, and new crew members turning up at the Conn, Security and Counselor. The latter is a Vulcan woman who wastes no time making it clear she has no problem criticising Picard and pointing out the errors of his decision making. She also seems to have a problem with Worf, who is currently acting as First Officer until Picard can find a replacement for Riker who has gone onto command USS Titan.

As the ship prepares to get back into service, Picard realises he can sense the presence of the Borg. WIth Starfleet not trusting him, he has to decide if it is worth disobeying a direct order and hunting down the new infestation on his own.

This book is a pretty awful effort. Far too much time is spent on a predictable storyline about a romance between the new conn and security chief, which is put under strain with the new Borg crisis. Beverly spends several paragraphs going over the same thought over and over. Worf comes over as far too soppy and emotionally indulgent, the new counselor seems to get away with being downright rude, and Picard just goes around doing whatever he wants. Plus the fact that Starfleet decides to ignore Picard even though First Contact clearly proved he has insight into the Hive mind is just weird, esp coming from Janeway who ought to know the Collective is never to be underestimated. Scenes with the Queen seem to be nothing more than a rip off from first contact, and suggesting the Borg are now angry and hate humanity is just jarring. The Enterprise resorting to using illegal technology is the final icing on this dismal cake.

Sadly I bought this book to try and get everything from the Borg saga but it really wasn't worth paying for.

3.0 out of 5 stars Resistance, is futile... 12 July 2009
By 8of5
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Resistance is the second TNG novel set after the film Nemesis and kicks of Enterprise's new adventures after the pause for repairs and relationship building in the precceding book Death in Winter. The book is a Borg story, I like the Borg, so here was something to look forward to. The story was short, quick to read, and somewhat disappointing. In a lot of ways it plays as a sequel to The Best of Both Worlds and First Contact - well fair enough, those are the two big Picard/Borg stories, but that's all it feels like, the story feels, despite it epic elements, small. A handful of new crew are introduced, only one survives to appear in the next book, but what feels really odd is the Enterprise is so empty, there are almost no background or side characters to flesh out the crew. The book at times felt a bit gimmicky, Borg Queen, saucer separation, cloaking devices, Locutus - throw them all in, it will be great, exciting! But somehow it just didn't work this time, lots of interesting bits, but it didn't work together very captivatingly.

The bits that did work very well in this novel were the development of Worf, as he struggled to realise he was indeed first officer material, and the introduction of the new Vulcan councillor T'Lana. T'Lana shone in this books as something very different, not just agreeing with Picard as one expects from his crew - an interesting and promising character. Overall the book wasn't as satisfying as it could be, it felt a bit cobbled together, and too much like a sequel, but it was still interesting and worth picking up to start the tale of the new crew dynamic.
