Publisher's Summary

From New York Times best-selling author David Mack comes an original, thrilling novel set in the universe of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Death slumbers in the ashes of silent planets, waiting to be awakened and unleashed....

Twenty years have passed since the interstellar scourge known as the Husnock were exterminated without warning by a being with godlike abilities. Left behind, intact but abandoned, their desolate worlds and derelict ships brim with destructive potential.

Now a discovery by a Federation cultural research team has drawn the attention of several ruthless factions. From black market smugglers to alien military forces, it seems every belligerent power in the quadrant hopes to capture the Husnock's lethal technology.

All that stands between the galaxy and those who have come to plunder the cruelest secrets of the Husnock are Admiral William Riker, Captain Christine Vale, and the crew of the Starship Titan.

Great story great book

This book was so well performed. The reader did his homework! He pronounced the names and places of everything properly not like I other Star Trek books. He used the proper voices and accent for the many Star Trek species that are in this book. He made had you on the edge of your seat during the action parts and really caring and connecting with the characters.

The story is really good it is complex when it needs to be and simple where it needs to be. The first office was my favorite character in this book and I hope a new Star Trek Titian book is produced because I really want to hear it.

Great sequel to TNG episode

This is a great sequel to a classic TNG episode. I have waited for this story for many years and so glad David Mack decided to write it.
If you are a fan of TNG and Titan, this story is for you.
The Narrator, Robert Petkoff has been doing an amazing job and hope he continues for a while!

What a disappointment

This Novel premise was great and started great. Then became just the introduction of characters that are weak and not appropriate centered. The missus of Tuvok.. Ricker in his room most of the novel..Just sad..

Perfect reading; most Trekkie of all Trek stories.

Tuvok! Gorns! Nausicaans! Oh my! Perfect reading and probably the best job ever of being faithful to the (non-JJ) canon.

Needs Better Writers

After just finishing the book "Collateral Damage" I thought I'd give this one a try. What I found is that it seems like the same book the Nausicaan's are the protagonist again. They're not that interesting at least how these writers are writing them. They're simple and one track mind. Also the drama is real for god sakes stop with the drama.

Facinating actionpacked cliffhanger

Packed with plots and subplots, full of aliens with different agendas, inteligently written - most entertaining cliffhanger.

Great Trek that fallows the TNG timeline

Great story plunked right from a TNG episode and expanded into a post Deminion War story. Has great action and well weaved stories that collide and separate well throughout the novel. Feels really Trek and didn't disappoint me.

Star Trek Deserves Better

This book made Starfleet out to be incompetent. Everyone got the upper hand on them and they were always reacting.

David Mack should read other author’s like Nuttal and Honsinger

Good but not great.

Star Trek Titan review

I was very excited to see the premise of this episode. Unfortunately the storytelling dropped the ball.

Spoilers

I am a fan but not a fanboy of Star Trek, and find the novels to be hit or miss based on the author. This could have been a wonderful romp, with high trek Indiana Jones meets Firefly. The Breen were a great foil, and the Ferengi and Orion Syndicate were excellent choices for adversaries. A whole empire suffers the Roanoke colony. Wow

Instead we get a video game plotline.

Even more the writer suffers from George RR Martin syndrome. A multitude of named characters to try and remember. Everyone gets a line, but almost none of them have a point. Not only is this distracting, especially in an audio format, it takes away the draw of the main characters.

Then there is Ryker. Plot device. Apparently he spends most of the space battles in his room with Diana, or on the bridge in a jump seat with a ball gag. I get he isnt in command, but an admiral with the level of combat experience he has isnt going to be absent on his own flag ship.

My final gripe (at least the last i am writing) is the incompetence of several key officers. Multiple executive officers in this story make major fundamental management errors, bully and threaten their subordinates, undermine the captain, and fail to do their jobs. You arent supposed to like these characters, and that is fine, but I just wanted to fire them.

Ok I lied one more: no wonder none of the people on the ship offer ideas. In the brainstorming session the first two ideas are slammed down so harshly, that scene is a great example i will use to show how NOT to respond in a creative innovation setting.

These issues arent real of course, but are examples of how this author should have taken a leadership course once in his life, or researched how the military or even office environments actually work.

Only an A story line

I enjoyed this book, it had a good story, good characters and interesting twists but the fact that it only had an A story line and no B story line was a bit of a disappointment. Most Star Trek books take place in two sectors of space or in two different time periods. As I said it was a good story but not as good as others Star Trek books I have listened to.

A little different

Minimal usage of any known star trek characters.
Only Ryker, and reference to commander Tuvok, but no indication as to if it was the same Tuvok from the series.
It lacked pace. The overall story has merit. But I found myself having to persevere to finish it.
