Overview

In 1995, a Russian aircraft carrier is destroyed by a mysterious creature that just as mysteriously disappears thereafter. Three hundred years later, Counsellor Deanna Troi awakens in her quarters from a nightmare in which she senses the voices of the crew of that Russian ship, whose life-essences were somehow absorbed by the creature that destroyed them. And the nightmare heralds a danger to the EnterpriseTM itself, for if Picard can't discover a way to communicate with the creature, it could absorb his crew just as it did the Russians.

Overall a good story. Certain characters are definitely written out of character from their presentation on the show but it’s understandable given this is the first TNG novel and would have been started on before the series even started airing. I would encourage anyone to try and look past that and give this novel a chance anyways as it’s still a rather enjoyable read.

This is an interesting book to read for the known series of Star Trek: The Next Generation, giving the reader another side of the story, in regards of depths, with individual thoughts of the characters involve, unlike watching it on tv.It started slow at first, with the akwardsness among the shipmates, due to being new to each others but work perfectly well together. This book mostly revolved around the relationships between Riker, Data and La Forge with each other and the rest of the main crew, like Picard, Troi, the Crushers, etc. Trying to understand each other, A flash back showed, in the year 1995 when a mysterious entity destroyed a Russian aircraft leaving no trace of it behind. The Enterprise deck's crew has their peeve about the other like Riker with Data, who just literally saw him only as a machine, not alive; and every childlike conversation Data came out with annoyed Riker. Riker and Troi had to face each other as if they have no romantical history between them. La Forge felt more like a computer than human due to the way people expect him to give them answers, through his seeing visor,They've encountered a strange entity that is giving Troi living nightmares because she could hear their thoughts and it's draining her fast. The entity also brought along ghosts that appear around the hallways and decks, as it attacked the Enterprise. Turned out the entity was after everybody's life essence to trap it within itself, and destroying the rest of the physical bodies and ship in the process. This brought up the question of weather to destroy it, or otherwise.

Do not waste your money on this book. It is boring and rote. There is not one good thing I can say about it, though I wish that I could......
