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 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!

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.

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.

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.

A Terrible Follow-up to a Decent TNG Episode

Got this under the pretext that it was a sequel to the season 3 TNG episode "Survivers". Remember? That quaint episode where the Enterprise gets a distress call from a planet but arrive too late and find the planet in ruin after being attacked - except for that one plot of lush vegetation with a sole house inhabited by an elderly man and wife.

Picard and Warf beam down several times and try to figure out why the two were seemingly spared while the rest of the planet was eradicated. Warf enjoys a cup of tea while they sit down and discuss the bizarre nature of the event and try to get to the bottom of it.

Anyway this "sequel" to that episode literally sees billions burned alive, gun violence including a defenseless injured women shot in head at point blank, decapitations, sex preferences of non characters arbitrarily explored with no connection to the plot and many plot holes that are too severe to overlook. This felt like new Star Trek and while that has an audience, I'm not among them.

It's not all bad, the narrator was fantastic and clearly has a love for the series doing a stellar job with all the different races. There is also some fun to be had with Ferengi characters.

But hey at least Tuvac furroughs his brow..

More Political Correctness

Point blank: bringing in unnecessary political statements just like Star Trek discovery. Getting tired of it. Wish writers would get back to the original Star Trek concepts.
