i don,t understand all the negative reviews on here. admittedly the borgs new abilities do seem a bit far fetched at times, but when you consider that they do have the ability to adapt, is it really that rediculous? why do people have trouble accepting the borgs new ablities, but they have no problem with the q being ommipotint?
speaking of the Q, the conversation between the borg queen and lady q was very interesting, and the idea that the borg may actually be able to assimilate the q was very frightening. imagine the borg with the power of the q? now thats a story i wouldn,t mind seeing in the future
the inclusion of the original planet killer was a bit of a head scratcher, and it does beg one question, if starfleet have had it in their possesion all this time, why has it never occured to them to use it before? think how it could have helped them against the borg in the past, or during the dominion war for that matter.
it was sad to see the fate of admiral janeway, but since this is star trek, there is always the possiblity of another author bringing her back one day. the character of grim vargo was an interesting one, and even though he doesn,t play a major role, he does sort of come to the rescue at the end for one character in particular. would be nice to see him again.
yes, there were a few gaping plot holes, but this was a great page turner of a book, with lots of drama, lots of action, and an apperance by spock of all people. certainly doesn,t deserve all the negative reviews.
