While searching for the U.S.S. Huxley, missing for more than 10 years, the EnterpriseTM stumbles across a forgotten colony of humans on a planet called Rampart, where fiction and works of the imagination of any kind are considered a heinous crime. A survey team beams aboard the ship to search for “contraband,” and the crew are drawn immediately into a vicious civil war between Rampart’s mind police and a band of determined rebels.
Confusing, entertaining, interesting, leaving you in bewilderment. But you find yourself enjoying the crazy ride of, “what did I just read…?”. You Have Data with his poetry, a mind controlling character that likes to attack people. Troi on a collision course of an adventure. The whole thing was just odd. The writing was well done and story line was there, just not to sure where it was going at times haha. Over all the novel was entertaining and if you by the time line, this book happens in the second season.
