As this third installment of the trilogy was the best of the lot, you will find that the narrative to be the best, also. All in all, with the surpreme challenge at hand, who better to trust the galaxy's fate... none other than Captain Jean-Luc Picard.

This is what a Q book should be!

After starting well in book one, and then slowly down to a crawl in book two,book three lets loose with some of the best story telling in the book series! Q faces an enemy more powerful than himself (a storyline touched on in Peter David's incredible "Q-Squared"), but this time he is trapped aboard the Enterprise and must play a sadistic game of "Hide and Seek" against his enemy, O. The storyline involving the female Q and baby q was equally gripping, as they faced the Betazoid professor now enhanced by the Galactic Barrier (as happened to Gary Mitchell in the original series episode "Where No Man Has Gone Before"). The story races along incredibly well, and makes up for the horrible sluggishness of the second book in the series. Definitely not one to miss!

Best of the trilogy

In this conclusion of this incredible trilogy ends with anoutstanding climax. After the destruction of the Tkon Empire, leadsthe first Q Continuum war, which Q is torn to whose side to be on. In the past of this book, we see the other Q also from the episode, "Deja Q", the female Q, Quinn from the second season episode of Voyager, "Death wish", and a Q who looks remarkably like Picard....

So good it's anoying!

Aparently Cox decided he had explain every undefined mystery in the star trek universe! From the dinos, to the barier on the inner and outer part of the galaxy, to why Q hangs around with humans, and even people from TOS! That's the only thing I can complain about, his obvious need to stop watching Star Trek for a few days. The book was good, but the cover was better! How come we can't review the cover?

First ST book I've read

Well, these three books are the first that I've read from any of the Star Trek novels. I think they were great! I finished all three books in two days, and I want more. A lot of you seem to claim that this trilogy was not good, and that an author named Peter David is much better. I don't see how that's possible because this series was so good. A lot of the reviewers claim that it was too drawn out with details and Star Trek tv show references, and I just say, "so what?" If you don't like the references, just skip over them, although I don't see how it's so hard to read a couple more pages. A great trilogy!
