I've kept up with the post-Nemesis St:TNG books and was looking for something to to tie me over to "Hearts and Minds" (the 25th book in the relaunch). This was perfect, is was nice to revisit some lost characters, and the Enterprise D. Nothing jaw dropping, just a good read by some solid authors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like watching several episodes. 20 Nov. 2016
By Christopher Begin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I was hesitant to purchase this collection of short stories, as I have seen generally not enjoyed fan stories myself, but this collection is wonderful. Many of the stories are written by authors who have already published TNG stories, and all of them do a good job of keeping the characters true to what we all loved so much about the show.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great group of short Star Trek stories. 19 Dec. 2015
By Shirley R. McCracken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
All the stories were great, but the one that stood out was about Worf and Data's cat Spot. It felt good to see Worf and Spot bond over saving the Enterprise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Three and a half stars, really. 23 May 2013
By James Yanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Better than mediocre, but not really as good as I generally expect from a four-star book. This is a collection of Next Generation short stories, which is not really a format I care for; still 13 of the 14 stories were at least okay, and some were quite good. The exception was the last story, which was a pretty dull introspective on Picard's mindset after the costly victory over Shinzon in "Star Trek: Nemesis". In that story, nothing much happens at all other than Picard sitting in his ready room writing a "congratulations on making Captain" letter to Riker. Seriously; that's the big excitement.

Oh, and the excerpt from Tokyopop's Star Trek Manga saga was about as bad as you might expect; terrible writing telling a trite (Dr. McCoy saves the day much to the chagrin of not-really as-logical-as-you-might-expect Vulcans) story, illustrated by terrible artwork in which the characters are almost completely unrecognizable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying. Enjoyable. Perfect Anniversary Book. 29 April 2008
By Diane Bellomo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave this one 5 stars, first with the hope it will raise the overall rating, and second because, well, I felt the book deserved it. Seriously, I don't know what readers were expecting from an anthology celebrating the twentieth anniversary of The Next Generation, but from where I sat, this book hit the mark and then some. It contains 14 stories by authors both known and unknown, and in doing so created a wonderful mix of the familiar and the brand new. What better way to celebrate twenty years?

The stories varied from thought-provoking (the bookends, "Meet with Triumph and Disaster" and "Trust Yourself When All Men Doubt You") to downright hysterical ("Thinking of You"), from compelling ("Friends with the Sparrows") to, er, "CATastic" ("On the Spot"). IMNSHO, even the weakest story ("Ordinary Days") had merit, if for no other reason than we met someone who would actually *marry* Wesley, even if it was in an AU. Oh, har-de-har-har.

So, if you're a Next Gen fan, as well as a fan of the pro writers, you just can't go wrong with this book.

And, of course, let's not forget my fetish for good cover art. Kudos to artist Stephan Martiniere for his absolutely fabulous cover - and thanks Pocket Books for listing his name on the inside page. Well done!

As to the manga excerpt in the very back: eh. I suppose it's great for those who like it, but I'm not one of 'em. Plus I thought it was kinda strange to have a classic Trek comic in a Next Gen anniversary anthology, but I suspect that was just an advertising decision, based more on the timing of publication than fan interest. I can deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought this book for the Tamarian story. 15 Aug. 2013
By Burnt toast - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ok, Usually these short story books are short in content. surprise! I liked the whole thing. Tamarians were the best alien encounter ever. What the hell's going on. After watching it over the years, it got to the point where I could understand how to reference a metaphor.

This book completes the story, and I recommend this book to all. Thank you and good day.
