Publisher's Summary

Sweeping across the Alpha Quadrant at a terrifying speed, a wave of Genesis energy has wiped out whole populations of entire planets, rearranging matter on a molecular level to create bizarre new landscapes and life-forms.

The U.S.S. Enterprise, commanded by Captain Jean-Luc Picard, managed to counter the threat, halting the wave in its tracks and stopping the alien race that had sent the wave crashing through the galaxy. In the process, the crew saved millions of souls and hundreds of inhabited planets from the mutagenic wave. Earth itself, as well as the Romulan Empire, was saved from obliteration.

Now nothing is left to do but clean up the mess the Genesis Wave left behind. Or so it seems. Unknown to Picard and his crew, the use of the Genesis Wave on a galactic scale had weakened the walls between our dimension and one right next door, one that harbors a deadly threat to not only the survival of civilization throughout the galaxy, but the survival of reality itself.

The Genesis Wave, Book 3 is the final volume of an apocalyptic adventure that pits the desperate crew of the Starship Enterprise against a disaster of universal proportions.

Not a


Having only a superficial relation to the first two books, it still tells a good story. It
seems like it was made a "Part 3" because it would have been difficult to sell otherwise.
It's basically the Ringo Star of the band. Get it, if you have to have the complete set, but
the second book wraps up everything it needed to wrap up. This is an all new start, with
different characters. Even the subplots are all new.

Story weaker than previous books

Not bad but felt there were more plot holes and cliche. Ending seemed a little bit contrived. Perhaps genesis force will explain it.

Cracking end to a great miniseries

Fantastic story which is well narrated, well thought through and kept my interest throughout. The voice actors are also very good and the classic Next Generation sound effects really bring this audiobook to life.
