Overview


In the tradition of UNIFICATION, here is the story that fans of the original STAR TREK series and STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION have been clamoring for -- Montgomery Scott's return to the Star Trek universe and his encounter with the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ NCC 1701-D.

Missing in space for seventy-five years, Scotty manages to survive against incredible odds, only to be found by the crew of the Starship Enterprise™. Though rescued, Scotty soon finds himself lost in a world that he barely recognizes, a world that has passed him by...

But the adventure is not over for Captain Scott who must do the impossible when the new U.S.S. Enterprise™ faces a very old danger in a remote sector of space. This time, Captain Picard and his crew will need more than all of their courage and all of their skills to save the great Starship from destruction. This time, they will need a miracle worker.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once an officer on Jean-Luc Picard's first starship, the Stargazer , and now captain of the U.S.S. Excalibur , the Daa'V Morgan must resign and return to his homeworld Daa'Vit to become its ruler. Starfleet sends the Enterprise to escort Morgan and his honor guard, fellow Stargazer officers selected by him. But someone is trying to assassinate Morgan; the Romulans may be involved; the Enterprise is caught in a subspace disturbance and may miss the ceremony. In an impressive demonstration of multilevel writing, veteran Star Trek author Friedman ( Fortune's Light ) neatly ties this new book into the series, but also enables it to stand on its own: the patience of longtime fans is not tried by boring synopses, but neophytes will find everything they need in order to understand the people and events. The two plots dovetail nicely, with developments in each heightening tension in the other. New characters from the Stargazer are well drawn, while the familiar crew members of the Enterprise gain depth in their new adventure. ( Nov. )
Library Journal
In the latest Trekkie novel the key to preventing a war between the Romulans and the Federation lies in Captain Picard's elusive past.
School Library Journal
YA-- Captain Picard and his former crew of the exploration ship Stargazer are being escorted to the coronation of Morgan, an ex-Stargazer officer and ruler of Daa'v. During the voyage, a killer stalks the corridors of the Enterprise , bent on their assassination. Reunion abounds with subplots, but the novel falls logically into place, bridging Picard's past and present while remaining true to the Star Trek universe. Characters are not just ``Next Generation'' holograms, but real flesh-and-blood individuals experiencing life's joys and pains. While Reunion does not boldly go where no one has gone before, the writing is lively and entertaining and it is one of the better ``Next Generation'' novels. A surefire hit, especially as 1992 is the series' fifth anniversary.-- John Lawson, Fairfax County Pub . Lib . , VA
