and it is wince-inducing. This is a sub-par Star Trek novel. In fact it sounds like a slightly longer version of fanfic that you can find online. The plot is thin and there is zero character development.
It gets two stars because it's amusing to here Shatner give voice to Data.
and more of the same. This book is in many ways similar to Buckley's Thank You For Smoking. Except instead of big tobacco it takes on politicians, the talking heads on tv, and the Washington political establishment as a whole.
Unfortunately, it's not nearly as clever as "Thank You..." and many of the jokes, instead of being witty, appeal to the lowest common denominator. Still, a good listen overall.
This book is a much better listen than Buckley's Little Green Men. In addition to being educational (lots of smoking facts are presented) it is deliciously evil. It's always fun to play the bad guy and this book does just that. Highly recommended.
It's a descent story, but not one of the best Star Trek novels I've read (or heard). Be prepared for some entertaining reading from Jonathan Frakes (Will Riker from Next Gen). This book is worth getting just to hear him do Captain Picard?s voice.
