I'll be honest - it was the thought of more 'Troi/Worf/Riker' that killed it. Even on the cover. I just went - No!

I have them both already, but I'm glad to hear that the first one is good.

I never like the Worf-Troi relationship either if that's what he was going on for the sequel.

I was easily David's worst novel.

He was normally so utterly reliable as well. Don't know if he even writes much Trek anymore.

I've heard that 'Before Dishonor' was easily his worst novel from a ton of people (especially Janeway fans).

Never read that - but up until Imazdi/Q-Squared at the very least, he was the writer for the best TNG stories etc.

Think he did a couple good TOS novels as well.

Around the time of those books though was when I drifted away from Star Trek novels into other reading and I've never heard of that book at all.

It's from this decade. Apparently, it's the book where Janeway is killed off and that really P.O.'d the Voyager fan base. Since, I'm not as huge of a Voyager fan, I might disagree with those who complain.

Has anybody read Vendetta? That's another David book I got in the lot.

I might actually have been pleased to read that then........

Anyway, Vendetta is also excellent and again employs some familiar characters and objects from the past in it's story.

It looks bad. I guess this is one of those few times to judge a book by its cover.
