4.0 out of 5 stars A good bok for any-one, trekker or not.
This book is a good example of a Star trek book, although it was written a while ago. It is the story of the crew of the starship Enterprise when they discover an abandoned alien ship. Or is it. It appears to be a ship however when the crew trigger a self destruct mechanisim the enterprise losses to of its members to a sub-space transport. Read on as the crew battle...

1.0 out of 5 stars Very dull
A very dull book, written in a unengaging style. Storyline was so boring I gave up after a couple of chapters. Not recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars TNG: The Early Years no.2, 10 Dec 2003
This review is from: The Peace Keepers (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (Paperback)
To over-simplify, there are two recognisable extremes in Trek books, those that focus on action/plot and those that focus on the detail - explaining in overly long passages the interaction and thoughts of all the characters and especially how each piece of technology works in the absence of ant real plot. While most novels may miss the perfect balance, this novel gets it just about right.
It starts when the Enterprise come across an abandoned vessel, and fail to understand fully its technology which leads to the disappearance (sub-space transportation meaning a greater range than a federation starship) of Geordi and Data to another empty vessel orbiting an inhabited world far away.
The Enterprise must then search for the pair. Geordi and Data are mistaken for 'the builders', those who left the vessel in the first place, inclusive of 'the gifts' - those actions the ship can perform such as transporters, tractor beams. Even though they are assured the world in a peaceful one, things are not how they appear.
The plot is strong and along the lines of classic trek, the pace is relatively fluid and the character development is solid throughout.
