Meanwhile, ninety-nine years in the future on the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D, Picard must rescue an important and mysterious person whose safety is vital to the survival of the Federation.
As the two crews struggle to fulfill their missions, destiny draws them closer together until past and future merge--and the fate of each of the two legendary starships rests in the hands of the other vessel...
Overreaching in places but ultimately a delight
I was easily a quarter of the way through this when I realized I’d read this before, many years ago. I had issues with it then and, even with this semi-fresh re-reading, I have those same issues...
My issues, however, are quibbling. This is a true Trek story, boldly explored by two of the finest Trek writers out there, with full knowledge not only of Trek’s extensive myths, legends, and technical bibble-babble, but also of the characters themselves, the heart of Trek.
It goes off the deep end a few times. Parts are just downright silly. Despite it all, I was glued to the page right to the end, and still didn’t want it to finish.
Used to watch, now I read!
I like STAR TREK but watching fictional series make me sleepy too much. So this is why I READ STAR TREK instead.
