One of the biggest advantages for Star Trek novels and comics, now that there aren't any ongoing television Trek series and the movies are few and far between, is that there's a new freedom to go in new directions and make new changes with characters, ships' lineups, alien races, the inner workings of the Federation and the balance of power in the galaxy, without having to watch out for contradictions with what might happen next month on tv, or to save out certain 'big' ideas in case they want to use them for a season cliffhanger or a new movie.
Star Trek: The Next Generation: Before Dishonor - Book review
They're also 'mixing up' the characters a lot, where a book, regardless of its heading 'Next Generation', 'Voyager', etc. It's epic in more than one way - although there's massive space action this isn't just one big melee. There's a big story tying all the action together, and making it more potent, and there's humor, ongoing development of the characters and their relationship to one another including on the bridge of the Enterprise, where there's real tension between different crew members now that some of the originals are gone and the new blood is sometimes in sharp conflict with old favorites and their decisions , familiar places and bits of Trek lore coming in when they're least expected, and a spiritual element that works extremely well David has handled this expertly in previous Trek books.
Much of that spiritual element is incorporated into a study of the Borg, with such questions as 'Does the Borg Collective have a soul?
When Seven brings her concerns to the hierarchy of Starfleet Command, they fall on deaf ears, but when she defies their cease-and-desist and tracks down Picard, he's inclined to have a much more open mind over anything the Borg may be capable of. And to ignore a Starfleet cease-and-desist himself, and take the Enterprise out to see if there really is anything amiss with this 'dead' Cube. Which there most certainly is. I loved the Voyager tv show, but in its latter run it, along with the movie Star Trek - First Contact Two-Disc Special Collector's Edition were inadvertently watering down the Borg - they were getting defeated too often, and sometimes almost easily.
In the Borg's first couple appearances on Star Trek Next Generation it always seemed like a one-time miracle that the Enterprise an. I couldn't put it down! After I started reading this book, I found myself unable to stop reading it for more than a couple of minutes.
Before Dishonor (Star Trek: The Next Generation)
The intriguing, verbally advanced, interesting plot made it a fascinating read. I don't really know how to give pros and cons about this book without spoiling it, but suffice it to say there are many plot twists and unexpected events. This monumental book will affect Star Trek books' plots for many years to come. Yes, this book has massive repercussions in the Star Trek universe.
By Peter David. It had to happen: Janeway as the new Borg Queen
A warning: this book will depress you. If you don't like getting depressed by books, this isn't for you. Overall, if you like Star Trek, you'll like this book. Where's the movie! One scene, with all three of them together, would have been fantastic to see on the big screen.
The story takes place after the Enterprise has apparently crippled the Borg for good. A massive cube lies seemingly dead in space while the Federation studies it - only humanity's greatest nemesis isn't quite dead. It waits for the right opportunity to present itself and it recognizes that opportunity when Admiral Kathryn Janeway visits the dormant cube. Light years away on Earth, Seven of Nine, now a professor at Starfleet Academy, wakes up from her regeneration cycle in horror.
Immediately aware of the danger that has resurfaced and determined to help the woman she loves and owes so much to, Seven defies Starfleets and heads off on her own to try to find the one other human she knows will help her. On Vulcan to celebrate the opening of the Sarek School of Diplomacy and Ambassadorial Studies, Jean-Luc Picard is reunited with a legend just as a very determined former Borg reaches them.
With Ambassador Spock and Seven of Nine on board, the Enterprise heads off to try to stop a threat unlike anything any of them have ever experienced. The Borg are no longer interested in simple assimilation. They have evolved - changed - and they are determined to retrieve what once belonged to them - a starship captain that has denied them victory once too many times and a young woman whose soul will make them complete. Story : This book, part of the new Next Generation novels, is a sequel to Resistance. Unfortunately, that book was written by J.

The old rules and assumptions regarding how the Collective should act have been dismissed. Now the Borg kill first, assimilate later.
