Seven years ago, Captain Jean-Luc Picard first faced the judgment of the Q Continuum -- a race of beings with God-like powers over time and space who presumed to gauge humanity's fitness to exist in the galaxy. Seven years ago they suspended judgment, but now a decision has been reached: The human race will be eliminated, not only in the present, but throughout time. Humanity will never have existed at all.

An old enemy has granted him the power to revisit his life as it was seven years before, and to experience his life twenty-five years in the future. With the help of friendships that span time and space, Picard struggles to defeat the plans of the Q Continuum. But even as he fights to save the human race from total extinction, he has been set up to be the unwitting agent of mankind's destruction.

The best part was Jonathan Frake's Picard voice. The worst part was his Worf voice. The plot had the same difficulties that the episode had - yet another adventure most of the crew didn't remember, a plot where Q not only gave Picard the answer, but caused the problem to begin with. If Q hadn't meddled by giving Picard the power to travel time in the first place, the crisis wouldn't have happened. ( )

Fair novelization of a neat series finale. ( )

A novelization of the final "STTNG" episode, and a fine story in its own right. Picard is experiencing an unsettling series of temporal jumps between past, present and future, brought about by Q who cryptically warns him that he must use this opportunity to undo the action he had taken that had doomed the human race to nonexistence. Of course Picard saves the day, but not before learning some disturbing things about the possible future of himself and his friends. Fortunately, "there are always possibilities". A well-told story, and a satisfying ending to the series. ( )

--------------------------



Captain Picard erlebt alptraumhafte Zustände: Einmal glaubt er sich zurückversetzt in die Zeit, als er auf der Enterprise das Kommando übernahm. Dann befindet er sich unversehens fünfundzwanzig Jahre in der Zukunft, als seniler Greis. Und plötzlich begreift er, daß er weder schlecht träumt noch verrückt geworden ist: Er wird tatsächlich durch die Zeit transferiert.

Verantwortlich für diese Zeitsprünge ist Picards alter Widersacher Q, dieses schier gottähnliche Wesen mit Macht über Raum und Zeit, das den Captain schon einmal vor ein Tribunal gestellt hat. Damals ist es Picard gelungen, das Q-Kontinuum davon zu überzeugen, daß die Menschen keine Barbaren sind.

Doch diesmal scheint es für Jean-Luc Picard keinen Ausweg aus der Katastrophe zu geben. Durch seine Fehlentscheidung droht der gesamten Menschheit die Vernichtung - nicht erst in der Zukunft, sondern in allen Abschnitten der Zeit: die Menschen werden nie existiert haben...
