The past returns to haunt Captain Jean-Luc Picard - a crime he thought long-buried has been exposed, and he must return to Earth to answer for his role in a conspiracy that some call treason. Meanwhile, the USS Enterprise is sent to apprehend pirates who have stolen vital technology from a fragile Federation colony. But acting captain Commander Worf discovers that the pirates’ motives are not what they seem and that sometimes, standing for justice means defying the law....

A Great Book to jump back into Star Trek

David Mack is one of the best writers for Star Trek books and this is no different.

I'll admit to being a little skeptical of jumping into an audiobook this far along in the timeline of Star Trek. I was worried that I couldn't understand what was going on and who the main players were now. BUT I was wrong. I did pick up this one because it was Captain Picard centric and I'm looking forward to the new series coming out in January 2020.

A lot of the characters are new but I felt like I got to know them right away. And a quite a few were ones that we had previously seen on The Next Generation (and Voyager). The plot was dependent on earlier books with a focus on Tezwa and the then Federation President but the author gives you enough information to understand the events that are happening and you can then focus on the present moment and what IS actually going on.

The narrator is also excellent - having done quite a few Star Trek books prior - so that made listening comfortable and interesting as he did plenty of modulation with his voice to distinguish between characters.

All in all this was an excellent adventure and I know feel like I can jump back into the Next Generation timeline and enjoy more books in this range as long as Simon & Shuster and Audible continue to offer them!

Another great Star Trek book.

This collaboration author and narrator has delivered another great Star Trek book. They have a few more on Audible, they are all good listen's and this one continues the story. I really enjoyed the court scenes with Picard, and found it an interesting choice that Worf would be 'acting captain'-ing the Enterprise.
They handled the Nausicans in a very cool way, not just tough guy thugs this time, they are fleshed out people with their own, very real place in the galaxy.

Collateral Damage

Excellent Story, Like listening to an episode of. TNG. Now I know why Captain Picard isn't an Admiral. Kind of figure the prosecutor had a personal vendetta against the Captain. Waiting on sequel to Titan: Fortune of War.

An alright story, an annoying narrative.

There's some pronouncing of star trek words that aren't the best. What's the most annoying aspect of this story is that going from chapter to chapter, it goes from 3rd person limited to first person back and forth. It's very annoying and I hope they don't do it again. I'm an hour thirty five minutes into the story I like it so far.
