This review is from: Star Trek: Typhon Pact: Brinkmanship (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (Mass Market Paperback)
"Brinkmanship" is an interesting novel, focusing on the politics of the Star Trek universe, rather than some space anomaly or technology-gone-wrong themes. Ezri Dax and Jean-Luc Picard are the main characters here, dealing with races such as the Cardassians and the Ferengi, as well as the Tzenkethi, who are fast becoming one of the most interesting races in Star Trek. Picard is perhaps written a little sterner than usual, but the author accurately captures Ezri's persona.
