Thumbs up Q-Squarred

Wow, what a great read! I couldn't put this book down! Yes, it may be a bit old, even before the events of Generations, but it's a very fast read. I loved it! It was also nice seeing Trelane again and how he is infact part of the Q Continuum.

This is my first Next Generation book in quite a while. I enjoyed it very much so.

Yes, I used to have the hardback of that. One of the best I remember. Admittedly, Peter David really did weave together TOS and TNG history brilliantly in that one.

I've always wanted to read that one! Glad to read a fellow Trekkie's opinion.

Peter David is the Greatest Trek Author there was.

I love the part when Mr.s Troi transforms Q in a Tree and an Axe appears in her hand. Deana tries and stops her. "Not now little one, Mother is going to go chop some wood."

That was hilarious!!
I could so see Majel Barret delivering that line.

Not read that book in years, definitely worth the reread.

Imagine how it must have felt for Beverly to see Wesley fall from that tree in the alternate reality. Yeesh!

I'd say this is in my top five favourite Star Trek books list.

hmmm, maybe I should make a list of my favourite ST novels. Some of them I can't even remember what happens in them.
