Ouch.
Deary me.
Pathetic.
These are some of the emotions and opinions I have from my least favorite Star Trek book yet, 'I,Q'. I know that as a general rule I should not expect great things from the ST books but this was particularly bad, especially as it was co-authored by Peter David - an otherwise fantastic writer.
So to the 'plot'. Q's family and the universe as we know it is being destroyed by an unknown entity or force. For once Q is unable to do anything as he finds his powers removed by the events that are occurring. With Data and Picard to help him can Q save the Universe and more importantly his family?
The answer - I don't know. The confusing and rambling story lost me somewhere during midway. The first person perspective failed to work and the set pieces throughout were just woeful. I mean really bad - as in the worst book I have read so far in 2006.
I urge you to avoid this novel and instead read the sublime Star Trek: New Frontier series by Peter David, these are excellent, coherent and funny.

Any Trekkie fan will admit that Q is probably the most enjoyable villain in Star Trek. We only wish there were more episodes with him in. Well at least this audio book can fill the void for us. A wonderful tale revolving around the infamous Q and told in his words. A typically charismatic John De Lancie narates the story in the true Trek tradition and impersonates all the characters with true precision and flair. A must for all Next Generation and Q fans everywhere.

God becomes bored and decides that she will end the multiverse. Q sets out to rescue everything, and finds himself repeatedly bumping into Picard and Data. The storyline is confused and confusing, and the characters are pitiable caricatures of themselves.
After this outpouring of scorn let me say that somehow the authors succeeded in keeping me turning the pages. There is one thing (and only one) that makes this book worth reading and that is Q himself. Peter David and John De Lancie succeed in producing a Q at his quirky best. Therefore, if you want a good story don't stop here, but if you love Q then this book is one you should check out. [Q-Squared is much better.]

Format: Hardcover
This book is a waste of money, even at Amazon's reduced price. The book is only 249 pages, and it feels padded at that length. The book doesn't have that much of a plot, and it lacks the wit of Peter David's other books like Q-Squared & Q-in-Law. I just kept waiting for the book to end. The book should never have been published, let alone as a hardcover. The book does give you a glimpse into Q's mind, but if you want Q read Greg Cox's Q Continuum Trilogy. If you read Dyson Sphere earlier this year, I,Q is like that book, only worse. I want my money back.

This is written in the first person from Q's point of view as he desperatley searches for his wife and child through shifting realities. He has lost his powers and is helped by his nemesis Picard and Data. Once you get into the first person method the rest of the book is good although the ending is disappointing and I thought rather lame.
