I just finished Q-Squared by Peter David. What a ride! I haven't read much of David before, but the two Q novels I've read from him so far this year have both been hilarious. I think I might have to look up his pre-Destiny TNG relaunch novel.
Ummm... I don't want to necessarily prejudice you against Before Dishonor
, but just be aware that it's going to be a significantly different experience.
I read all the relaunch books through Destiny back-to-back and I didn't think it was that great of a departure. Maybe I'm not very discerning.
