Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

Just finished re-reading Q&A by Keith R.A. DeCandido. While the novel was as excellently written as ever, with some welcome cameos from the Titan crew, Gorkon crew and Admiral Shelby, it just didn't really fire me up. The new crew members were introduced well and a nice dynamic was built up, especially with Kadohata and Leybenzon. Of course we all know what happens there.

As far as the story goes. It was nice of KRAD to tie all of Q's appearances across the series and make it a coherent narrative with his testing humanity. Even explaining "Qpid" away with Q just wanting to see Picard in tights. However, I feel it just fell a bit flat really, some nice banter with Q, but I've read better Q novels (cf. Q-in-Law). Score = 3 out of 5

Next up is a return to the good ship Titan for Orion's Hounds and lets see what Mr. Bennett has in store for us.
