All the familiar characters are here, but this reads like the movie novelization it is: a forced plot, and choppy scenes built specifically to give each popular character (1) a chance to be in danger, (2) to risk everything for the ship/ the mission/ each other, and (3) to be saved in the nick of time, except for the heartfelt sacrifice of anyone who doesn't make it, so the movie will be remembered as an event. With all that heroism, the plot doesn't require a deus ex machina to resolve, but it does require at least three arbitrary and implausible devices to drive conflict in the first place: a clone of Data, a clone of Picard, and a failure of the Enterprise's self-destruct sequence. No reasonable person asks realism of a Star Trek novel, but help suspending disbelief is perhaps not too much to ask. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 068985627X, Paperback)

An all-new adventure starring Captain Picard, Commander Riker, Data, Worf, and all your favorite characters!


En route to a wedding celebration, the U.S.S. Enterpriseā„¢ is redirected to the Romulan homeworld. A civil war there has opened the possibility of a peace treaty with the Federation. And the new Romulan Praetor has arranged to have the Enterprise, and specifically her famous captain, Jean-Luc Picard, brought in to discuss the future of the galaxy. No more Neutral Zone? An end to centuries of hostilities dating back to the first encounter with the Romulans? Is this too good to be true?

Picard, Riker, Data, Worf, La Forge, Crusher, and Troi are prepared to negotiate a peace treaty. But upon their arrival the crew is faced with a threat that could lead to the destruction of the planet Earth. And Picard encounters the man who could be his most dangerous adversary yet -- and a surprisingly personal nemesis.
