Re: TNG: The Stuff of Dreams by James Swallow Review Thread (Spoilers!

So I imagine most people won't rate it as highly, but, after reading it almost immediately after it arrived on my laptop, I'm giving this an "outstanding." The story was well-constructed, the dialogue was well-written and true to the characters as they've been presented in canon, the balance among the characters (and between canon and non-canon characters) was ideal for me, and, most importantly, the story made the Nexus more compelling than Generations did and complemented that movie's story, enhancing both.

Spoilery stuff below:


In short, The Stuff of Dreams is solid in its construction, but coalesces into more than the sum of its parts to become an outstanding Trek story. Well done, Mr. Swallow!
