This book was excellent. It "rehabilitated" the characters that it could and introduced some great characters and ideas. Christopher is really good at tying seemingly wildly contradictory ideas together. The way he explained all the different versions of the Borg was very well done. I was very happy with this book. And, 1) I love T'Ryssa Chen, and 2) Thank you for bringing in Rennon Konya. I even sympathized with T'Lana again.
