Looking through the thread I note that people have criticized the amount of faces from the past being brought back, but to a large extent I had no problem with this whatsoever, in fact I really enjoyed that this novel brought to an end so many threads dangling from The Next Generation with Berlinghoff Rasmussen, Bok and the disappearance of the Hera.
To be fair to the author, that's a subject they can't win on - half the audience love seeing old characters, while the other half will say it makes the TNG universe look like North Wales (lots of inbreeding).
Too true, and having family from North Wales I can certainly vouch for that.
I'm just glad that I fall into the former category and enjoy a bit of an old school reunion.
