Amazing story by John Vornholt. As a huge fan of Star Trek TNG I can see that Vornholt really knows the characters from the tv show. This book would have made a great TNG movie, miles ahead of Insurrection and Nemesis.

I love Star Trek: Next Generation anyway, and am not disappointed in that respect, but I love this book in particular. The idea of masks, the mask making your place in society and what you can do - an excellent idea, and well done. Its what we say about scifi - you can express or explore issues that we have now without being obvious about it, without offending anyone.

Titan Books continue their series of novels based on Star Trek: The Next Generation with #07: Masks by John Vornholt.
This book is set sometime in the latter part of the second season of the show and given the relationship between Worf and Pulaski, it would seem to be after the events of `Up The Long Ladder'.
The Enterprise is escorting Federation Ambassador Fenton Lewis to the primitive planet Lorca. The world is a geologically unstable planet and home to a colony of humans who left Earth two centuries ago to start a new world not dependent on modern technology. Half of the crew were farmers and anti-technologists and the other half were part of a travelling acting group. When their ship crashed the people had to start anew and somewhere along the way the theatrical became part of their way of life.
Now, all he people on the planet wear highly decorated masks to highlight their status in the society. Lewis is there to make contact with the planetary leader, the Almighty Slayer, and Picard, Worf and Troi accompany him to the surface. When volcanic activity cuts off communication with the ship the Away Team have to adapt to Lorca and it's strange customs.
With a rescue party dispatched from the Enterprise, the two teams struggle to find each other while attempting to stay one step ahead of the Lorcans and their medieval codes of combat. To make matters worse, Ambassador Lewis abandons the team leaving Picard in the company of Lady Piercing Blade, a fierce warrior who claims the right to rule Lorca.
When a Ferengi ship enters orbit it becomes clear that they are attempting to take the planet for themselves and there appears to be a connection between them and Ambassador Lewis.

This was a great story. It was a well thought out planet and civilization with twists in the story that kept my interest throughout. This would have made a great episode.
