Publisher's Summary

From the deepest, darkest reaches of space came the greatest threat the Federation had ever faced: the Borg. Half organic, half mechanical, the Borg were relentless and bent on conquering and "assimilating" all intelligent life; a single Borg vessel destroyed 39 Federation starships, decimating Starfleet. Stronger and more dangerous than ever, they are ready to launch a new attack against the Federation, one that threatens its past...its present...and its future. Only the determination of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and his crew can prevent the Borg from striking at the heart of the Federation and Earth.

good movie tie-in

The book was well written and the narrator did a great job. I've been waiting for this book for years.

great book - also great movie

this is not only a great si-fi novel. it is a great all a round novel. it is taken from the star trek movie of the same title. this is maybe the best of the star trek movies. personally ' first contact ' is one of my fervent movies of all time. the movie translates fairly well into novel format.

Nice movie story line.

I usually like to have more details than the movie but this pretty much followed the script. It was entertaining none the less.

"Borg...............Sounds Swedish"

As a Star Trek fan, I have my favourite movies/episodes. My 2 favourite movies are, Nemesis and First Contact. Sadly, this book leaves me feeling a little empty, for one specific reason......

The narration, I think, is extremely weak. So weak, at times, that it's drowned-out by the volume of the music and sound effects, making it difficult to understand. A little more intensity by the narrator, especially at the 'key moments', could have really elevated this title.

Instead, it's left a little 'flat', and uninspiring.......nothing at all like the movie. A real shame, considering how it may have been.
