1.0 out of 5 stars The Borg again ruined!!!, 21 Dec 2007
This review is from: Resistance (Star Trek) (Mass Market Paperback)
Ok I bought this from the local bookshop and after reading the back synopsis I was really looking forward to reading the book.

First of all the story deals with a rouge Borg cube that somehow more bigger than anything seen before and somehow are making a new Queen.
The story lacks heart and any real danger, you always kinda feel throughout the book that everything is safe and no-one you like will die.
The new characters are plain cardboard cut-outs and you end up rooting for the Borg to put them out of their bad dialouge scene's.

The good points of the book are Worf's arc and tying nicely up with DS9 episode.

The new Vulcan character is also a good new main character but you have to get over the standard star trek Vulcan character syndrome that seems to have popped-up more recently.

Also Admiral Janeway is almost perfectly written, and the scene she was in were my favourite parts, she is cast as a by the book Admiral and was refreshing to see her bang heads with Picard rather than the sickly exchange from Nemisis.

Overall only by this book if you are an extreme trekkie and don't mind the Borg yet again being reduced to a big baddie that has had it's claws clipped.
