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

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.

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.

It was absolutly perfect,I have been waiting for Picard and Beverly to come together for ever.And the danger she is put into makes it so much better. You will never want to put it down.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.

I like this book a lot. I read it about 2 years before becoming an X-Men fan, and I thought the previuos meeting was well explained. Over all, very good

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.
