Trek BookGive me strength.. I’m so close to the finish line. But some of these books are down right horrible. I have definitely read WAY better novels in the Trek series and this is NOT one of them. Author was trying to hard to be different and change some things that didn’t need to be changed. Like names to rooms. Then there is Wesley, over all I like Wesley don’t get me wrong. He wasn’t handled vary well in this novel, in fact a lot of characters were not handled correctly and the lack of knowledge of the history of the show comes through. Data was the only one that was done right. The whole thing is forced fro beginning to end.

Strike Zone (Star Trek: The Next Generation #5) by Peter David

217855Deep in the uncharted regions of our galaxy, the Kreel, a primitive, warlike race have stumbled upon weapons powerful beyond their wildest imagination. The Kreel have used those weapons to attack their most bitter enemies, the Klingons.
Captain Jean-Luc Picard and the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise are called in to mediate the dispute by ferrying diplomatic teams from the two warring races to the source of their conflict, the mysterious planet where the weapons were discovered in an attempt to find a peaceful solution to the conflict, and discover the origins of the super-powerful weapons.

What is odd tho Peter did write Q-In-Law (https://nerdylifeofmine.com/2016/03/28/star-trek-book-challenge-47-q-in-law-star-trek-the-next-generation-18/) & Vendetta (Star Trek: The Next Generation) (https://nerdylifeofmine.com/2015/11/27/star-trek-book-challenge-17-vendetta-star-trek-the-next-generation/) and I love those books for the most part. This one just didn’t work for me. Like he just dropped the ball onthis one or just needed a pay check haha. Peter has written a lot of Trek books and that is what shocks me about this book. This wasn’t his normal style.
