Format: Mass Market Paperback
The Romulan Stratagem is an excellent read, quite compelling. The main story mainly focuses on Captain Picard, which is a welcome change, as he actually gets to go down to a planet to put the Federation's case as to why they should join the Federation. The Romulans, and Captain Sela, are also there doing the same thing. Data also gets a decent storyline.
The only problem, and it is a small one, is the back story of Ro showing a young man around the Enterprise who ends up with a crush on her. It seemed to have a more interesting angle, but that came to nothing and was never mentioned again, and just ended up as an annoying kid fancying Ro.
All in all a very good book though, well worth reading

5.0 out of 5 stars Definite page turner! 21 Jun. 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book brings back one of the most interesting villians to grace the Next Generation . . .Sela! Having only made brief appearences during the TNG seres, it was a real treat to find out more about the fascinating daughter of the late Tasha Yar. The story starts out a little slow, but it quickly builds into a page turning plot. Look for some great scenes involving Data and Sela. Two phasers up on this one

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good. 29 Mar. 2007
By James Yanni - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is a solidly above-average Star Trek novel, with a very interesting and worthwhile plot, more cerebral and less standard than most, while still maintaining enough drama and action to suit most tastes. It has excellent characterizations, good pacing, and is reasonably if not superbly well-written, with only a few of the sort of proofreading errors that I generally complain of (and those somewhat more subtle and with words that are easier to mistake than some books make: "complementary" colors, rather than "complimentary", which might even be arguably correct, although it seems wrong to me; "diverted" instead of "averted"; "breath" used as a verb, rather than "breathe"; "peaked" her curiosity instead of "piqued"; bombing "sights", rather than "sites" (twice in three pages). Not a bad count, compared to many mass-market paperbacks. The other reason I have for not granting it five stars is that I found the subplot with Ro Laren to be pretty irrelevant and unnecessary to the main storyline, if not completely without interest, and thought that it was not really concluded very well. But the main storyline mostly made up for that with a VERY interesting and plausible ending.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too slow-paced for me 7 Feb. 2004
By R. Spottiswood - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This story is of a type more often found in the Original Series: the Federation and one of its enemies are competing directly for the allegiance of a newly star-faring civilisation, the Elohsians. Both sides try to show their best features, with the Romulans of course doing their bit to sabotage the Enterprise crew. The premise is really good but the author fails to make a good story out of it. Much of the early book is taken up with conferences and banquets and such, where the Romulans and the Elohsians do their best to needle and provoke the Enterprise crew, and they in turn do their best not to show how irritated they generally are. I don't know whether it's excess empathy with the crew, but I did not enjoy these scenes any more than they generally do. The Elohsians are also rather arrogant and conceited. You expect and get that from the Romulans too, and both together were too much. The book later moves on to explosions and some fighting, and this reveals that the author's writing style is just too flat, too uninteresting for the events he is presenting. To top it all off, there is a sub-plot involving Ro Laren, intended mostly for comic relief. It has long winded scenes too, and the humorous events do not make up for the amount of time spent getting to them, let alone provide a good counterpoint to the rest of the book. While some of the book is good, overall the entertainment value is just too low to be worth reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just "ok" 23 Feb. 2011
By hybernation - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read perhaps 100 or more ST books...some great, some not. I only read this one because I wanted to fill in the gaps concerning Sela (Denise Crosby), the enigmatic Romulan commander who was the daughter of an alternate timeline Tasha Yar. I must say that Mr. Greenberger did an admirable job capturing the essence of these TNG characters, especially considering this was his first Star Trek novel to have authored alone. Still, the story itself was a little lacking in action and plot. Not a bad ST book, just not a great one either.

4.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 8 Nov. 2000
By Bobby Pierson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the first Star Trek book that I have ever read. I Loved it!! I felt I had a bond with the characters. Robert Greenberger is awesome. I felt like I was part of the story. Getting beamed down with the Away Team and meeting a new race of people. My wife thought I was going to far when I began saluting her and calling her Number 1. I'm hooked on Star Trek now!!!
