I, Q,ueue, to get away from this book.
on 10 March 2006
These are some of the emotions and opinions I have from my least favorite Star Trek book yet, 'I,Q'. I know that as a general rule I should not expect great things from the ST books but this was particularly bad, especially as it was co-authored by Peter David - an otherwise fantastic writer.
So to the 'plot'. Q's family and the universe as we know it is being destroyed by an unknown entity or force. For once Q is unable to do anything as he finds his powers removed by the events that are occurring. With Data and Picard to help him can Q save the Universe and more importantly his family?
The answer - I don't know. The confusing and rambling story lost me somewhere during midway. The first person perspective failed to work and the set pieces throughout were just woeful. I mean really bad - as in the worst book I have read so far in 2006.
I urge you to avoid this novel and instead read the sublime Star Trek: New Frontier series by Peter David, these are excellent, coherent and funny.
