I'm shocked at the reaction displayed in this thread about "Before Dishonor". I've not read many TrekLit books, but this is by far the best. Yes, there are a (small) number of "mistakes", like the apparition of that pirate captain, a not so great characterization of the Enterprise crew and Janeway not permanent death (but this is not Peter David fault). But, and this is a capital BUT, the plot, starting when Janeway is absorbed, it's unstoppable and epic. When a book make me switch off Netflix or any other technological entertainment it's pure joy, because there is nothing like a damned fine book that make me happy. And "Before Dishonor" it's near perfect for my taste.
