Overview

Ambassador Spock continues his mission to unify the Romulan and Vulcan peoples, but is captured by a Romulan spy. Starfleet dispatches its best ship, the U.S.S. EnterpriseTM 1701-D, and its most respected captain, Jean-Luc Picard, to secure the release of the ambassador. Ambassador McCoy, now over 140 years old, is also sent to assist in the negotiations. But the situation becomes further complicated when another of Spock's former shipmates, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott confiscates an out-of-service starship and effects his own daring rescue of his friend.

Continuing the mission he began in Unification, Ambassador Spock tries to help a band of Romulans eager to unite the Romulan Empire and the planet Vulcan. But Spock and his students are taken hostage, and Captain Picard and the U.S.S. Enterprise are dispatched to secure the hostages' release, aided by 140-year-old Ambassador Leonard McCoy. Simultaneous hardcover release from Pocket Books. 2 cassettes.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Veteran Trek scribe Friedman (All Good Things...) delivers the goods again with the most interesting and ambitious novel to come from this complacent franchise in a while. Friedman assimilates characters from the original TV series into a rollicking adventure/rescue story. Ambassador Spock, still working toward reunification of the Vulcan and Romulan cultures, is captured with several of his protgs by a regional Romulan dictator with delusions of grandeur. Viewing Spock's capture as a security risk, the Federation sends Captain Jean-Luc Picard's Enterprise to negotiate Spock's release, assigning 140-year-old Admiral McCoy to the ship because of his familiarity with Spock. Meanwhile, Scotty steals a starship and engages in his own one-man rescue attempt. The interplay is fast and furious, as is the action, while the political intrigues are sufficiently interesting, if not very complex. Readers will have a fine time second-guessing some of Friedman's claims (Scotty went to the Academy?), while nodding in agreement with most of them. The prose, like several of the rescue attempts, lacks subtlety and grace but is suited to its task of telling a story that stars characters of whom most readers have already formed full and sympathetic portraits. (Dec.)

    (no spoilers) Awesome for Trekkers

    About me:

    Favorite ST series: 1) TNG 2) Voyager/DS9 (tied, close second) 3) Enterprise 4) Original Series

    Favorite movie: Insurrection/Generations (tied)

    This book is a great blend of characters and story telling with a great story in general. If you know your TNG, I don't think this book will disappoint. You have to have some reference to the Original Series to really appreciate it though. The story never seemed contrived but rather it was very intuitive.

    Classic Trek with a TNG twist

    This is one of my favorite novels in the Star Trek saga. Friedman brings a brilliant peice of work to life with ties in to several ST episodes, the main as in a continuation of Unification. His poetical style brings the reader into the action as the original crew of the Star Ship Enterprise gangs together once more in the traditional way of going around the 'Prime Directive' to rescue thier fellow shipmate and friend. Picard has to balance this less than conventinal attempt with his own troubles of trying to keep the respective governments at bay while trying his own rescue ordered by Starfleet Command. A definate recomendation for those who have a vivid imagination and can appreciate all the generatins of Trek. A true continuation of the legacy given to us by the 'Great Bird of the Galaxy'....................qo'mey poSmoH Hol ~ language opens worlds
