Not. Very. Good.
Riker was depressing and insane beaming willy nilly to Gorn ships. Troi has turned into a boring shell of a character. And when the plot turned to sending an away team to the surface, well, I knew this book had gone to a ridiculous place.
I've stuck with this book for a long time and to get a payoff as weak as this book delivered was quite disappointing.
No heart. Trek books need to be better.
