A great contiuation of the first book

For those of you who like Q, space battles, and mystery, you'll like this book. Read the first one too!

If you like Q, you'll probably like this.

This entire trilogy is a gold mine for those of us who are fascinated by Q. Unfortunately, it is probably not going to appeal to those who find Q annoying, or those looking for a classic Picard-centered adventure (even though he appears on the cover).In this book, Q, having kidnapped Picard right off the bridge of the Enterprise-E, begins sharing parts of his past with Picard in typical Q fashion... by transporting them both back in time to witness the events first-hand. As he does this, he shows us a completely different being, in attitude at least, than the smug, self-assured Q we are used to seeing on the TV series. We also see that Q was at least indirectly behind several of the adventures of Kirk and his Enterprise.

Great Sequal

The first book was utterly amazing and perfect. It gives everything I ever wanted to know about Q. Star Trek The Next Generation: The Q Continuum, Book 1 of 3 Q-Space by Greg Cox is all I could have asked for and more. The second one topped. If you've seen the Next Generation episode The Last Outpost (The first Feringi Episode) you will be utterly insterested in the Tkon Empire. Also, (even though it took awhile)the author, Greg Cox, made the realism flow. Because to the charactors, Star Trek V is their history lecture. Mr. Cox added a joke near the end, and if you've seen the Original Series Episode And The Children Shall Lead, is humorous. Recall the quote 'I was thinking maybe a children's crusade," Gorgan suggested, "starting with the youngest of their race...'(Pg. 254 Line 21) That sums it up for me. If you've read Star Trek The Next Generation: The Q Continuum, Book 1 of 3 Q-Space by Greg Cox this is a must buy.

The ultimate Q story

For absolutely anyone who was intrigued with Q and the Q Continuum when they first appeared in Encounter at Farpoint. Although a bit lacking in developing the secondary plot of the Enterprise's troubles, the novel more than made up for it in its developement of Q. Greg Cox truly brings Q to a new light, and shows us a side of the super-being we have never seen. Watching Q struggle through witnessing his own past is an emotional experience at the least. A great read. The only problem is, can the final installment live up to the expectations formed by reading the first two?

A refreshingly original Star Trek read.

Greg Cox again proves his skills at writing an original story that avoids the stale plots and repetitiveness of most recent Star Trek books. Cox manages to weave in details of Q's life that seem plausable given Q's history. The characters are solid and the action is gripping--especially the scenes revolving around the Tkon empire.
