A coworker, knowing that I'm a Star Trek fan, passed this novel along to me. After reading the story, I know why he didn't mind subtracting it from his personal library! The various Enterprise crew members do not act or speak according to their characters. It's like reading a book about people pretending to be the Enterprise crew! It's annoying, and makes for a rather boring novel. This is a book I don't recommend!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I've read many STTNG book and while some were great, and some were good, I don't think I've ever read one I didn't like. While I like the story line.... I'm sorry to say that it was poorly written. Peel takes the characters....well...out of character! True fans know these characters...they know their speech patterns and dialogue style, they know the way Picard handles himself in times of crisis. We know how he speaks and, importantly, how he is spoken to. And let's not forget that Data does not use contractions. Foolish errors that fans will pick up immediately and in turn, be disappointed. Oh, and someone please buy Mr. Peel a thesaurus so he can find an alternative to the word "gesture" because 34 times in a 200 page book is just wrong! Let's hope the next one is better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
