When two powerful rival families of the spacefaring merchant race called the Tizarin are to be joined through marriage, theU.S.S. Enterprise™ is chosen as the site for the wedding. Though Captain Picard is pleased by the happy duty, his pleasure is cut short by the arrival of the Federation delegate from Betazed: Lwaxana Troi -- the mother of ship's counsellor, Deanna Troi.
Despite Lwaxana Troi's romantic overtures toward the captain, the celebration seems to go smoothly until the situation is further complicated by the arrival of the notorious and all powerful being called Q -- who has come to examine and challenge the human concept of love. Suddenly, the festivities are in turmoil, the powerful Tizarin families are on the verge of war, and Lwaxana Troi is determined to teach Q a lesson in love that he will never forget...

Picard is pleased when the Enterprise plays host to a Tizarin wedding between the children of two of the rival houses of the race. However, he is somewhat less pleased when Lwaxana Troi is sent as the Ambassador for Betazed. When Q decides to pop in for the festivities as well, Picard and the entire crew are suddenly on edge anticipating the potential havoc the onmipotent being could potentially wreak. Everyone gets even more alarmed when Lwaxana finds herself attracted to Q and the potential for chaos escalates.When I was 11 I went through a phase where I read every ST:TNG novel I could get my hands on. The show itself had been off the air for several years (let's put it this way, the show started when I was just shy of 1 year old) and I knew it mostly through re-runs but I was very obsessed for a while and Peter David's novels were always my favourites and I bought copies of several of them, including this one. The novel is definitely more light-hearted with the craziness that is Lwaxana and Q and the Romeo & Juliet type romance going on in the background with the Tizarin wedding. My 11 year old self and let's face it, my present self too, also really enjoyed some of the Riker and Troi moments that will make any shippers squee a little bit. Funny and a quick read, this is definitely only for TNG fans but it hits the spot.

I myself am a huge fan of TOS and TNG. The humor in this is awesome and it's a good read for if you want to know more about the characters.

This is perhaps one of the best Star Trek fiction books I have ever read. It is FUNNY. Its a total laugh riot. You had to figure when you paired Lwaxana Troi with Q, you get a very hysterical Star Trek story, especially when Lwaxana gets the powers of the Q and uses it against Q for betraying her. Also, Wesley Crusher is in this and you get a few laughs from him as well. I highly recommend this book if you're a trekker and looking for a good laugh.
