I liked this book, CLB's books have been some of my favorite. This one though, does get a bit muddy in the middle with too much science that is over my head. I god lost in a lot of it. I love that it seems authentic, but it does not help when I cannot understand a lot of it (so many technical terms). I did feel like the emotional resolution for some of the characters was too easy. It seemed to be that same problem that TNG suffered from, all the psychobabble that seems to lack the depth seen in DS9 (Tuvok coming to a very fast healing in the end, just because he realized where his anger was really directed at seemed a little too easy).
On the plus side, it was good to see Riker get some time of the ship and have this relationship with Aili. The world was really interesting and well done. And, in the end, the book ends with good character moments, which are what is most important in a good Trek novel.
On a side note, I would love to have a visual of the main member of the Titan
, it would be really helpful!
