When captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the “U.S.S. Enterprise(TM) receive news of a human planet hidden in the center of an immense stellar cloud, they immediately investigate. Penetrating the cloud, the Starship crew is shocked to discover a world of knights and serfs lifted right out of Earth’s Middle Ages. Ruthlessly exploiting the planet is a ring of intersellar trophy hunters preying on the immense, native dragon-lizards twentey-feet tall and armored like tanks.
Beaming down, an away team soon becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue and murder. Taken prisoner, Picard, Riker, Data and Ro must somehow escape and stop the hunters or face destruction from the hunters’ weapon, based on an advanced technoloy capable of utterly annihilating the “Starship Enterprise(TM) .
Sorry, Anywho! Here There Be Dragons (Star Trek: The Next Generation #28) by John Peel is another one of those comfort food books. Story is a basic formal for TNG and there is nothing wrong with that. The story wasn’t very complex, but it had a compelling moments and the characters were spot on. The author knew his history for the show and characters, which is nice to see. There have been far to many times where the book falls flat on it’s face. I rather enjoy the Middle Age twist with the Trek, it was smooth and well done. The humor was fantastic and found myself laughing out load at some points.
