is q squared a good book?
 
I just had a quick question. After reading good star trek books like q in law,imadzi, and the destiny series I was wondering if q squared is as good a book as any of the 3 books i already read?

I don't think Q-Squared is as good as Q-In-Law, but it's a pretty good novel nevertheless and I'd recommend it. :)

I thought Q-Squared was awesome. So was Imzadi.

Q Squared was great when i first read it at 13, but at 32, PAD didnt really mature along with me, he's comic book writer first, novelist second.

I absolutely loved Q-Squared when I read it a few years back.

The audiobook would have been so much more awesome if William Campbell had done the reading (or at least participated in it, like de Lancie and Majel did for Q-In-Law).

Q-Squared is definitely worth checking out.

The first I heard of "Q-Squared" was when Peter David gave a pre-publication chapter to John de Lancie and William Campbell to read together at a ST convention. Campbell's DS9 episode, "Blood Oath" had only recently aired (March 1994) and it was a rare convention appearance by Koloth/Trelane.

The live reading was reported in the media and it seemed they would be sharing the audio duties on the forthcoming book and tape release (July 1994). When the audio eventually came out, it was de Lancie, as narrator, going solo. IIRC, Campbell had some health concerns after the convention.

It's a lot of comic book-style fun. I really liked the somewhat unhinged Jack Crusher. And...

I loved the book. One of the few I have reread.

It's definitely worth reading, if not quite up to the stellar Q-In-Law.

S&S Audioworks license didn't actually allow for what they did with Q-in-Law. It was only because of the Majel Barrett factor and not wanting to piss off Roddenberry (who was, even that close to his end, still the final word on all things Star Trek) that allowed it to go through.
