    Like Coming Home after a Massive Storm!

    The events of Star Trek Destiny precede this novel. That series details the war between the Federation and the Borg. I did not read that series before reading this book. This book, which is a detail of the recovery efforts in aftereffect of the Borg war. I am only on the second book of the Destiny series and nothing has been given away so that I could not enjoy it.

    Obviously, Loosing the Peace inspired me sufficiently to go on a read more Star Trek novels as this has been my first in almost twenty years.

    All that I have loved and idealized about the Federation has been torn asunder. The challenges of such a Utopian society in the face of planetary scale population refugees, illness, and food shortage was fascinating to 'see'. This is not action packed, it is not riveting, it is recovery, it is a holding on to dreams after loss, it is grieving, it is survival, it is the calm after the storm. My memory says that Star Trek novels are fast food, enjoy it then toss it aside. I think I may re-read this novel again, once I am done with the Destiny Series.

    I loved the hints at other novels and story-lines I have not read!

    more from this reviewer

    Federation Seeks for Founding Goals and Values

    I found this story to be very well written. Mr. Leisner used enough of the bookend stories to make this a thrilling "catch-up" read for me. Well-done!

    As a Minnesotan I found it quite nice that he used names and words from our state's heritage. The town of Bemidji has an apt character in Mr. Leisner's tale, much as its history was tied to Chief Bemidji.

    This tale gave some insight into Capt. Jean Luc's personality and background that bespoke of how his character was formed and how his personality was discovered. The insight into Beverly Crusher-Pickard also warmed my heart and helped me understand myself a bit better.

    I would like to see Mr. Leisner show more of his Minnesota connection and will look for other things he has written.

    Convergence, and Diffusion

    Again, another excellent author is branching out, and going where Star Trek's direction should go, Forward! with new directions, new ideas, and the hope that never will die.

    Gene Roddenberry has forever changed this planet, and all the authors have that same sense of wonder, change, and the constancy of hope in all the books.

    What a mess

    I found this book did a wonderful job depicting the events that plague humanity following war. Of course, the crew of the Enterprise never lets you down as they must face personal and professional challenges throughout the story. As a longtime faithful fan of Star Trek: TNG, I have enjoyed the development of the relationship between Picard and Crusher. I will enjoy reading more about their future adventures.

    Boldly going..no place really, and that's fine.

    This was a welcome change from the challenges the Federation and cohorts have had to face from the Borg over the last umpty ninth books. A quieter book that looked at the aftermath of war, something the Enterprise crew many times just flies away from. Characters old and new deal with loss, and hope. The author does a nice job with the characters and works well moving plot lines through the timeline of the past few books, leading up to Singularity, the final TNG book (for a while). A quieter book for a quieter time in Trekdom. I wonder how the timeline change from this summer's movie will effect future TNG. We'll see. Enjoy this book.
