Overview

On the planet Xhaldia, ordinary men and women are mutating into bizarre creatures with extraordinary powers. But is this a momentous evolutionary leap or an unparalleled catastrophe? The very fabric of Xhaldian society is threatened as fear and prejudice divide the transformed from their own kin.
Dispatched to cope with the growing crisis, Captain Picard and the crew of the Starship Enterprise™ receive some unexpected visitors from another reality -- in the form of the group of mutant heroes known as the uncanny X-Men®. Storm, leader of the X-Men, offers their help in resolving a situation that is agonizingly similar to the human/mutant conflicts of their own time and space.
But when hostile aliens appear in orbit around Xhaldia to try and abduct the transformed for use as a superpowered force in an attack on the Federation, even the combined forces of the crew of Starfleet and the X-Men may be unable to prevent an inferno of death and destruction.
Starfleet's finest crew and Earth's greatest mutant heroes will need all their powers and abilities to save the Xhaldian people and stop a deadly threat to the Federation.

    Death in Winter

    I read the synopsis for this book and it sounded intriguing ¿ hopeful. It seemed the powers-that-be had FINALLY decided to flesh out the Picard/Crusher relationship, giving readers and fans of the series their greatest wish... to see the two characters united once and for all. The author, Michael Jan Friedman, created a storyline filled with great potential, but that is all. This novel lacks description and depth of characterization. Friedman never really takes the time to inform readers what Picard and Crusher are thinking and, more importantly, feeling about each other. Subsequently, Picard and Crusher lack the intimacy readers and fans of the series might expect from these characters, making the final pages of the novel forced and unbelievable -- most disappointing, since this is supposed to be THE novel in which Picard and Crusher declare their love for each other. The sub-plot involving the power struggle within the Romulan Empire is better written than the Picard/Crusher storyline even though several lose ends remain ¿ such as the underground rebellion on Kevratas and the fate of Sela. This book could have been the 'Imzadi' novel for the Picard/Crusher relationship ¿ had Friedman taken a bit more time to flesh out his characters, especially those of Picard and Crusher. In short, I¿ve read better offerings from authors who write Star Trek: The Next Generation on-line fan-fiction.

    A Good Read

    This book is a good expansion on the Star Trek Universe. It features characters we have grown to love, as well as some new ones. In the story Spock is captured and Scottie and Picard go to rescue him, however Scottie also gets captured and needs saving. The writing style of this book makes you feel like you are back on the Enterprise with Picard and Co. working buisily around you, but it can also be too simple at some points. It is a good read for a Trekie that wants to pass the time. I wouldn't recommend it to someone that is not familiar with the Original Series and The Next Generation because they would surely be lost in space.

    Amazing!

    I couldn't put this book down! The emphasis on the relationship of Jean-Luc Picard and Dr. Beverly Crusher was something that I have been waiting for with bated breath! Finally the relationship is able to come to fruition, and the exploration of deep longing and held back love against the backdrop of conflict with the Romulans and capture of Crusher made it a page turner! You have to read this!

    From bookjacket (abbreviated):

    Long before Captain Jean-Luc Picard took command of the legendary starship Enterprise, he fell deeply, hopelessly in love with Dr. Beverly Crusher. Though, for one reason or another, Picard never acted on his feelings, he found a measure of contentment as her close friend, colleague, & daily breakfast partner. But when Dr. Crusher leaves to become the CMO of Starfleet, the brightest light in Picard's life is taken from him. And he has hardly resigned himself to his loss when he learns that Beverly's disappeared on a distant plague-ravaged planet, Kevratas, in the Romulan Neutral Zone, where she'd gone undercover to work on a cure. It's feared she's dead. Picard is sent with two former Stargazer crewmates & a Romulan refugee to complete her mission, all in the middle of a Romulan Empire fraught with political rebellions.

    Picard's Beginnings

    This book doesn't just tell you about Picard's first command, it takes you with. Full of action and mystery, it provided several circumstances to witness Picard's genius. If your a Jean Luc Picard fan, I recommend this book.

    A good read even for Non-Trekkies

    I couldn't put it down, despite the fact that my knowledge of the Star Trek universe is limited, since it sways more towards the Marvel Universe. I have read a few bad reviews on this book by fans, but I must counter such reviews and say that this book was fun to read. Lets just say it helped to soothe my need to forget my own life pains successfully. Lalallalalalalallalala

    Very Good

    Pretty nifty; artwork could be better

    Kind of a neat story, about Data in his early years. Sort of makes a good parallel between Data as the awkward young adult not sure of who he is or what he's capable or what exactly he's doing, and the reader who's probably feeling many of the same things. A good book. Illustrations by Todd Cameron Hamilton really aren't that good - they look rather flat and rushed and not very creative or interesting.

    X-Men Star Trek

    This was a good book because the author didn't mess up the characters personalities and explained how they met.

    totally fantastic. awesome. mindboggling. I loved the interaction between Worf and Wolverine and not to mention that between Picard and Storm. I'm even gladder to own the comic prequel before this book came.
