I loved it as I expected I would. It's another great effort from Mr. Mack. This is how you tell a story that involved multiple series without resorting to "guest star team up." This book really puts the rest of the TNG relaunch to shame. The Borg are handled well. The humor works. The tone is nice and there are major changes to characters that don't feel half-assed. Too bad I don't have book 2 in my hands right now.
