Star Trek Book Challenge 18: Guises of the Mind (Star Trek: The Next Generation #27)

216871So on the challenge we have Guises of the Mind (Star Trek: The Next Generation #27) by Rebecca Neason… Not a bad book, it’s more of a filler really. Rather decent Deanna Troi story. It uses both her job and telepathic abilities to the fullest. The story is a bit of a ‘Man in the iron mask’ style. But that’s okay because I love that book as well, so meh.

Sadly there really isn’t much I can write or tell you about this novel. It’s just there hahaha, I mean here is the story plot of you:

The world Capulon IV is finally ready to join the Federation aften years of waiting. All that remains is the ruler’s coronation and a routine signing of the final treaty. When the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise™ and their passengers—a group of women from a religious order dedicated to helping the downtrodden—arrive for the event they expect to find a world willing and happy to receive them. Instead, they encounter deceit and treachery. The crown prince, once excited and eager to join the Federation, now refuses even to speak with Captain Picard.

Beaming to the surface in an attempt to work out the problem, Picard, Troi, and Mother Veronica, the abbess of the nuns, are drugged and captured. Now they must somehow escape and stop the crowning. If they cannot prevent it, the King will be omnipotent, with the power to destroy the Starship Enterprise and all of Capulon IV as well…

Little action, more of a mystery/drama novel really.. If you find yourself with a copy and some time to kill. I say give it a read haha.

Star Trek Book Challenge 17: Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation)

217911The Borg and Captain Picard, how can you go wrong!? Let me start by saying this.. Thank God I picked up this book to read next. A lot of these Star Trek novels are so painful to get through. Oh should there are a few winners, but the number losers out weights them sadly. But Vendetta is making up for a lot of them :). So for this challenge I’m reading Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by Peter David, now to let you know that Vendetta is a sequel for I guess you would say the events of “The Doomsday Machine”. Which is an episode for the original series of Star Trek and the episodes for “The Best of Both Worlds” Parts 1 & 2, from Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Vendetta The Borg — half organic being and half machine, they are the most feared race in the known galaxy. In their relentless quest for technological perfection, they have destroyed entire star systems, enslaved countless peoples, and, in a single brutal attack, decimated Starfleet’s mightiest vessels. Only a final desperate gambit by Captain Picard and the “U.S.S. Enterprise(TM) ” crew stopped the Borg from conquering the entire Federation. And now they have returned. VENDETTA

In the bestselling tradition of “Metamorphosis” and “The Lost Years,” here is the newest Star Trek (R) Giant Novel, a story of vengeance and obsession.

Answering a distress call from a planet under attack by the Borg, the U.S.S. Enterprise crew meets Delcara, the lone survivor of an alien race the Borg obliterated. Blinded by hatred, Delcara seeks the ultimate revenge — the complete destruction of her race’s executioners. But the U.S.S. Enterprise crew learns that Delcara’s vengeance carries a terrible price, for once unleashed, the destructive force she commands will annihilate not only the Borg, but countess innocents as well…

I love this book and Peter David does a great job at using all the characters from the show. Even if it only for the basic of needs. The story line great and moves right along, I think if there was an issues with this book. I would have to say it would be the use and how Data comes off. But other than that I rather enjoyed this book from start to finish.

So if you fine to to read this, I say go for it. BUT! If you are to watch or read “The Doomsday Machine”,  “The Best of Both Worlds” Parts 1 & 2, I say do that first. But I don’t think it is a requirement to do so. 





Oh Captain, My Captain…..

Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) face off in the first epic trailer for Marvel’s “Captain America: Civil War,” in theaters May 6!


Marvel has released an updated synopsis for the film:

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

Black Panther!! So we finally get to see what the Black Panther will look like in the upcoming movie/movies.
