Re: Star Trek: TNG: Indistinguishable From Magic Review Thread

Apologies for reviving an inactive thread but I needed to get this off my chest

I picked up a copy of Indistinguishable From Magic today. I'm about 150 pages in and just completely disappointed with it.

The plot lack any real energy to drive it foreword. All the characters feel flatl and uninteresting, Scotty especially. Don't get me wrong, I'm a massive fan of Scotty and enjoyed his scenes in Corps of Engineers and Ex Machina immensely. But here, he's just so....lifeless. I know he's supposed to be feeling the effects of his age is supposed to be an import aspect of the novel but he comes off so poorly, he come off sounding and feeling like a cardboard yes man

Geordi is also feels horribly out of character here too. He's supposed to a twenty something year veteran of starfleet but comes off feeling like a naive ensign in someone's bad fanfic.

Some one tell me, Does it get better? is it worth reading on?
