3.0 out of 5 stars Control Alt Delete, 5 Feb. 2003
This review is from: Gemworld: Bk. 2 (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (Mass Market Paperback)
The first of this two part series deserved the benefit of the doubt as the story is by definition left incomplete. The incomplete resolution of this second book makes the pair of books a low priority for any fan who enjoys reading these installments, for book #2 would be handicapped enough if it was not such a cliché, and did not use so much material fans have seen before. The solution to the problem is almost laughably poor.
Mr. Barclay is now completely fallen for his new love, Commander Deanna Troi has once again had her empathic powers damaged (sound familiar), and, you guessed it, a rip in space/time is the menace that once again gets recycled by authors who have no imagination for something new.
I will keep this brief as the book is not worthy of your time. The ending is one of the weakest I have read in any Trek adventure, and to make matters worse a great deal of the book is recycled from other stories you have either seen on television or possibly read before. Some have suggested that the movies could be judged by whether they were an even or odd number in the series. I think that perhaps how bad the cover art is may also be a way of judging these books. I know it goes against a long held and valued saying about how not to judge a book or anything else. But when the cover art is poor and not by a talented artist or a well-known one, perhaps the unwillingness to invest in the visual presentation should be a clue for what may lie within.
