Overview

After the end of the EnterpriseTM's five-year mission, Captain Kirk, Mr. Spock, and Dr. McCoy struggle to establish new lives apart from each other and the starship. The newly-promoted Admiral Kirk is placed in charge of a specially-created Starfleet division and attempts to defuse a critical hostage situation; Mr. Spock, who, in the midst of a teaching assignment on Vulcan, finds the one thing he least expected; and Dr. McCoy, whose unerring instinct for trouble lands him smack in the middle of an incident that could trigger an interstellar bloodbath.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In a story line constructed to fill in the gaps between the end of the original 1960s Star Trek TV series and the beginning of the feature-length movie series, the Enterprise docks on Earth, ending its five-year mission, and Kirk, Spock and McCoy go their separate ways until a tense hostage situation reunites them. ``Certain to appeal to the series' fans,'' predicted PW. (Aug.)

When i started this book i thought it was going to be about space. and sorta boring but as i got off unto it was great. it had drama, sadness and romance. in this book you get glimpse of everyone's life and from there prospective about a situation that is accruing. my fav character of this book has to be Sisko he was strong intelligent reasonable scar tic at times as well...
Commander Benjamin Sisko who has been stationed on Earth since the tragic events of Wolf 359 in which his ship, the USS Saratoga, where he was serving on as first officer, participated in the defense of Earth from the Borg. As with most starships on that dreadful day, the Saratoga was destroyed and Sisko was able to escape with his son Jake, but his wife, Jennifer lost her life. As any man would, he's been suffering that loss since that day.

The story opens as Benjamin Sisko and his son Jake arrive at Sisko's new assignment on Deep Space Nine. Sisko is ambivelent about his new Star Fleet posting and what greets him at the station does not encourage him to stay. The Cardassians had stripped both the planet and station of everything of worth before their departure. As the DS9 crew began to assemble and attempt to restore order to the situation each was struck by the enormity of the problem(s) that faced them. Then, depending on your point of view, either the Celestral Temple (Bajoran heaven) or a stable wormhole was discovered near the station. Whatever it was called it was a pathway to the Gamma quadrant, a short cut that would place Bajor at the crossroads of major trade routes. It would also make Bajor a highly coveted prize that many civilizations would be willing to fight over.Quote"The most important thing to understand about humans.It is the unknown that defines it existence.We are constantly searching-not just for answers to our questions but also for new questions.We are explorers .We explore our lives day by day, and we explore the galaxy trying to expand the boundaries of our knowledge.-sisko

It has been six years since Captain Jean Luc Picard was once part of a collective known as the Borg, half organic, half cybernetic life forms whose only goal is to assimalate other beings into their collective. But now, the borg have traveled back in time to the year 2063 to stop humans from making first contact with aliens from another world so they can assimalate the Earth. Jean Luc Picard and his crew must follow the Borg back in time and repair the damage they have done, if they fail the future of humanity will be lost.

This book went by in a flash. It was good. Generations was the first Star Trek book I ever read. Once I saw it, I knew I had to get it. This is the book that got me hooked on actually reading anything. Before this book, I despised all books. This got me interested in reading a lot more often. Since then, September, I have read over 20 Star Trek books. They all are really good. I particularly liked Generations.
