I went for Above Average. I enjoyed it without loving it, perhaps because I'm still not sold on the Breen as an interesting adversary. Possibly because the character stuff didn't work for me that well - I didn't really believe in Crusher and La Forge's issues or at least thought they were overstated.
That said it was still very good with some great moments - Chen in charge of the bridge was a lot of fun and at last gave her some more to do in a Mack novel as he has generally sidelined her.
Looking forward to number 3.
