In this week’s episode we are joined by Carl Stark as we continue our book club, there’s almost no news this week but we do of course make time for your emails.
Our Thoughts: There were several aspects that we enjoyed about the book. We liked the idea of the new life form that spanned the entire star system, and its slip stream method. We enjoyed meeting some of the new senior officers and the call backs to previous episodes. We got to see Hugh again! We liked the battle sequences too. However, the book seemed to drag: there were too many staff meetings, too many people talking, at times too much introspection. Additionally, T’Ryssa Chen, the new Contact Specialist, was pretty annoying to most of us, and Picard was a bit depressing. The ending hit us in the solar plexus! Everything that the Enterprise E crew did in the book was ruined!
The Final Verdict: Overall, a decent book but not fantastic.
