Contamination (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by John Vornholt

I was very dubious about reading this book but I have all the Next Generation books and am reading them in order. I am NOT a fan of Troi at all and find her character too 'girlie' for my liking, although I know she toughens up a lot in the 'Time to' series and 'Titan' novels. But to my utter surprise I really enjoyed this novel. it has a fast pace and succeeds in linking two seperate stories very well. TV can not get inside the characters minds like a book can and Vornholt, like the other authors of this series, does very well adding another dimension to them. I found muself beginning to like Troi a bit more.

Murder, lies, cover ups and breaking of Federation laws all aboard the… Read more

There is a warning on the reverse of my copy that does state not suitable for young children and I agree with that. I am not a parent myself but this is quite dark (literally) and graphically violent in places it also deals with the shadier side of the human character most of the way through. I would not want my youngest nephew (9) to read this, pretty sure my elder one (13) could cope with it though, obviously it is personal choice.

As the main character is 16 I presume this book is aimed at teenagers and young adults, I am neither yet enjoyed it thouroughly, although not my normal Sci-Fi style book to read.

I am glad I bought this book on impulse whilst on holiday… Read more

This is all about a fairly new crew (and readers) getting to each other and settle into routines. Of course 'trouble' is never far away and Riker seems to know where to find it. Riker is maturing into a geat Captain (we all knew he would be) but there are elements of Picard in there too, although his style is more relaxed then Picard's. If you like Star Trek in general then you will like this, if you are Riker/Troi fan you will really like this series so far.

Not everything is what it seems in space, something that is equally as true on our own planet and in our own real lifes.

I am really enjoying the Titan series maybe because I am a Next Gen Gal and love Riker -… Read more
