4.0 out of 5 stars A good "little" follow up to Destiny
By rights I shouldn't like this book. There are no large space battles or big bad villains. In fact, at the end of the book, I cannot really tell you of any one person or org that could be considered to be the villian in this story. But, this was so engrosing for me that I finished it in 2 sittings.

It deals with the afternath of the "Federation devstating"...

3.0 out of 5 stars Fans of action and giant space battles will be disappointed
The latest novel in the Next Generation continuation series is a lot calmer than the preceding destiny trilogy and Borg based novels beforehand. It's a welcome change of pace to a more diplomatic and political theme rather than war, war and more war.

The latest novel in the Next Generation continuation series is a lot calmer than the preceding destiny trilogy and Borg based novels beforehand. It's a welcome change of pace to a more diplomatic and political theme rather than war, war and more war.

Captain Picard and his crew's new mission is to assist in the rebuilding efforts as a roving troubleshooter, while Dr Crusher heads up her own team visiting a refugee camp on a water world.

Although it is the second in the political line in a row it still feels more like a traditional next gen novel, though fans of action and giant space battles will be disappointed as we've definitely moved beyond that for a while. The new crew seems to come together in this one for the first time, although it's not entirely clear which of the new characters are going to be main characters and which just supporting.

All in all I enjoyed it as a quick read but it has nothing of the impact of the destiny series. I don't even know when we'll be returning to the next gen or where they are planning to go next.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good "little" follow up to Destiny, 5 Feb 2013
By rights I shouldn't like this book. There are no large space battles or big bad villains. In fact, at the end of the book, I cannot really tell you of any one person or org that could be considered to be the villian in this story. But, this was so engrosing for me that I finished it in 2 sittings.

It deals with the afternath of the "Federation devstating" Destiny series and the impact it has on a populace that took their "happy lives" for granted and how the Destiny aftermath affects the personalities of some very distinctive individuals as well as starfleet. And this is told in what I found to be a very engrossing character driven story.

In some places, I felt this to be almost like a very well written Fan Fiction and I mean that in a positive way. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The next chapter in the post Nemesis TNG revival, 1 Sep 2011
This book continues from the story arc laid out by the Star Trek: Destiny novels of the Borg invasion of the Federation. Losing the Peace deals with the aftermath of the Borg invasion from the view of the crew of TNG.

The book itself is not as dramatic as the Destiny trilogy but it does provide a good character back story for the new direction taken by the TNG revival and lays the ground work for the Typon Pact novels.

While perhaps not the best book of the TNG relaunch and not essential for any of the storylines so far it does fill in a few of the gaps from the recent Borg stories. If you have read the previous relaunch novels then this is an easy read to continue to see how the characters will develop.
