I have to start by saying in really enjoyed most of the story and it was good to see Geordi get some development.....But. This book was really badly written, there are so many phrases that just feel out of place in the 24th century, it feels so much more like the dialogue from a sitcom and not the language that I am use to hearing in Trek. There is also a lack of good transitions and as one of the other reviewers said, so many, "genuis", "good idea" and "guv", that it just feels wrong.
I like the story, but the way it was written just had me pulled out of it too much. I was also left feeling like it all wraps up too easily and quickly. In the end I would say average, but left me with a much better taste in my mouth than RBOE.
