For this book challenge I read: Unification (Star Trek: The Next Generation) by Jeri Taylor
Oh my…… Where to begin with this one…. It’s another book based of the a episode… But this was…. It was bad, I gave it 3 stars on Goodreads. Mostly because it had some good points like: Like the cross over with the classic Star Trek and Next Generation…. Data was rather funny in this book… That’s about it.
But it so poorly written and plot holes everywhere.. It’s like author didn’t even know any Star Trek history. Aside from the fact that this reads like an old harlequin novel. Yeah! I know right! There were so many sexual references with every character. I think the word I’m looking for is nymphomaniac HAHAHA, yeah it’s that bad at times in this book. It really took away from the story and the fact it’s almost completely different for the TV show. I understand you can add or change things around in a book to make it more enjoyable or enrich the environment. But this book and author fail on every level possible…
It’s sad in a way really.. I’m just surprised that this book was okay to be published.. I’d say, stay far away from this book!
Based on the epic two-part television episode, here now is the story STAR TREK fans have awaited for five long years, the story that bring together Spock — the enigmatic Vulcan who personified the original, classic STAR TREK — with the crew of the Next Generation. Screenwriter Teri Taylor brings all the excitement and wonder that have captivated fans of the smash television series STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION to this story of Spock’s forbidden journey into the heart of the Romulan Empire — and the U.S.S. Enterprise’s desperate attempts to discover the reasons for his mission there. Join now with Captain Picard, Lieutenant Commander Data, and the rest of the Next Generation crew on a voyage of unsurpassed adventure, a voyage that brings them to the edge of history — and forces them to confront a shattering betrayal!
I really wanted to stop reading this book. It was that bad… Now that I’m writing about this book. I think I’m going to change my rating on Goodreads. It’s not worth 3 stars…. So if you want a lackluster, bad plot line, trash harlequin Star Trek novel. This is for you!! Odd thing is, the episode was great! Rather dropped the ball on this one.
