The book gives an insight into the creation of Artifical Intelligence, and sees Data coping with the emotion of grief, the fact that he may not "die" for a long time, developing intuition, finding love, and discovering that no matter how long he will live, he should make every moment he has count. This is a great motto for all of us.
I found this book utterly exciting, and a must for die hard fans like me! I was glad that Data had finally been given a plausible love interest, although the bit where she is trying to save him, and exposes her real identity at that time had me on the edge of my seat. This book is a definate must have!
Keep on Trekking!
As the cover suggests, this novel is unashamedly a Data novel, as he and the crew of the Enterprise set out to investigate an attack on Commander Bruce Maddox (the man who petitioned to use Data to build his own androids in "The Measure of a Man") and the disappearance of the esteemed Professor Emil Vaslovik, a cyberneticist and mentor of Data's creator, Doctor Noonien Soong.
If there has to be one warning with this novel, is that fans of The Next Generation only may be put off by the numerous references to various artificial intelligences that appeared in The Original Series. It wasn't a personal deal breaker for myself and it must be said that the vast majority are little Easter eggs that I imagine most people would just pass off.
The book has link back to ST:TOS too but it does not spoil the story if Kirk & Co. are unknown to the readers, but you should probably not read it if you are unfamiliar to the ST:TNG universe.
The story only get 4 stars because it was a little too predictable.
I am a massive fan of data and I always wondered what happens post the series. This was great, well written, well researched novel about the android himself. I loved learning more about his life after the installation of the emotion chip. And the main story filled me with suspense. I'm not good at writing reviews, basically it was well worth the money xxxxx
