    I would have enjoyed the adventures of the Enterprise crew undercover on a pirate shipbut the overall premise of the novel is driving me to distraction A system of planetsrun by a military dictatorshipruled by an overlordand somehow it became part of the FEDERATION?? I'm sorrythat flies completely and totally in the face of everything we know about the Federationto say nothing of the fact that if you accept this mind wrenching premise then AVOIDING a war when a massive incursion of Romulan ships and troops into Federation space has occurred makes my head spin None of this makes any sense to me and it is one of too many things that drove me crazy about this novel The ripe dialogue straight out of the most pulpy SF novel the cybroid bitch is mine over the top characters and small little fanwank details that shouldn't have been mistakes calling Riker William when everybody calls him Wil identifying Data as the helm officer when he is 2nd Officer and serves at Ops Only the lightning fast nature of this story manages to just about hold all this togetherbut in the end this is not one of the highlights of my personal journey through Star Trek prose

    Boy Simon Hawke has done the ST universe well This one also deals with Romulans and their so called relatives the K'Trall The premise of the story is that a pirate named Blaze is pillaging Federation merchant vessels in the K'Tralli sector and Starbase 37 under command of Captian Gruzinoz and old friend of Picard's cannot handle the situation Plus Blaze has in his possession an old Constitution class ship he names Glory and it has cloaking capabilityWell Picard and the Enterprise arrive on scene to investigate With Gruzinov and his security officer Dorn helping they find that the Romulans and a corrupt K'Tralli overlord J'Drahn are trying to get the Federation to leave their territory or break the Prime Directive by intervening Of course K'Tralli space is on the Federation side of the Neutral ZoneWar with the Romulans seems likely but after Riker and LaForge get captured by Blaze things changeVery well paced novel with good dialogue as well as land and space battles

    Yeah I really love Star Trek novels This tale about freewheeling 24th century pirates and a plot by the Romulan Empire is not trying to be anything than a fast moving thriller that provides that sweet sweet nudge to the guilty pleasure point in the brain It made no literary advances to the genre but I didn't need it to Perfect travel reading

    This one is a good choice for anyone who likes the episodes of TNG either dealing with diplomacy or in which Enterprise crew members go undercover in a dangerous situation The premise is a bit convoluted but things move uickly and the voicing of the familiar characters is mostly in keeping with their portrayals on televisionI haven't read many of these novels previously so it felt a bit strange to read things that typically aren't conveyed on screen and at times it slowed things down for example Riker's entire thought process about his options for how to uickly get from one place to another on a ship There were a few moments that I consider anachronistic such as the phrasing for commands on the Holodeck which is a nerdy thing to criticize but what else would you expect from someone reading a Star Trek novel?There's is some misogynist language an overly sexualized description of the body of one of the female characters and stigma toward sex work and substance use Perhaps that's a product of the book having been written in the '90s but it's overt than anything I can recall from the TV show and naive to think society's perspective on sex work and substance use wouldn't have progressed by the 24th century

    This was about standard for an older Star Trek book it had a decent plot that showcased a handful of well liked characters in a fun situation There's a few little flaws here and there that I don't think are worth mentioning in detail one of my biggest complaints would be the pacing The set up felt really long to me they give us the premise and then keep hammering it in over and over with a gratuitous use of the word Freebooter Once it gets past all the planning and all the discussion then it really starts to be enjoyable The action is just enough to get you interested in reading and the world starts to flesh itself out as you go It sort of disappointed me with the end though it was really fast especially when we had a ton of set up and we were just getting to some really interesting materialOverall it's not terrible I'm not sure if i'd read it again but I definitely don't regret reading it in the first place

    A fairly good Trek story with a good plot and reasonably good pace I liked the grittier elements and Katana was a good character I understand Dorn's reluctance to accept or even like her although she was clearly suffering with PTSD that affected a lot of her decisions and rational behaviour so much so that I wasn't sure who she was as a person at times Her character could have been handled a little better; would she have been as accepting of Data given her history?

    Fun story not anything too great but it did have some interesting characters The name Captain Blaze of the starship Glory made me roll my eyes though Dorn Gruzinov and Katana were interesting enough and I appreciated what they gave to the story The story was pretty run of the mill and I don't think anyone acted outside of their character Mainly I was just glad the ship on the cover was not there in error by the artist

    I really couldn't get into this one An offshoot of the RomulanVulcan species sounds like a lot of fun to work with I got through about a third of the book before dropping it maybe I might pick it back up later

Esurgence of the despotic cruelty they have suffered for centuries With time running out Captain Picard must see his way past a maze of deadly deception with billions of lives hanging in the balance.
