Several characters within the Star Trek franchise, primary and secondary, often made crossover appearances between one live-action series and another. This included appearances of established characters on premiere episodes of new series, a few long-term transfers from one series to another, and even crossovers between Trek films and television.

In the bestselling tradition of Federation, this new adventure brings Spock, McCoy, and Scotty together with Jean-Luc Picard and his crew. Deep in Romulan territory, Starfleet Ambassador Spock aids in a daring underground movement to reunite the Vulcan and Romulan empires. When a Romulan spy joins the ranks and betrays the group, Starfleet dispatches the Enterprise, commanded by Jean-Luc Picard, to effect a rescue.
  • When I started reading this book, I thought that it would be one of the best and most fun books in this genre. I very much liked Scotty's character as Friedman writes him. I think Friedman did far too little with McCoy - very one-dimensional. He missed a terrific opportunity to go into McCoy's motivations and all that lay behind his gripes, but Friedman was content to skim the surface. Some of the story lines were interesting, and some could not be believed. To give just one example of the latter: the book really builds off the TNG episodes "Unification" I and II. In the book, Spock and his students are captured, but a high-ranking Romulan governor does not know which of the group is the legendary Spock, and this makes him frustrated, so he offers the group a choice: give up Spock or die with the others. No one is willing to give up the Vulcan teacher. Why is this such a poor plot development? 1st, Spock is very well known in the Romulan Empire and has been for years, as we know he was involved with several conferences over the decades in which the Romulans were involved, and he even developed a bond with a Romulan senator. 2nd, in Unification, the Romulans captured him, even created a holographic likeness of him to give a speech to Vulcan and the rest of the Federation (perhaps this governor did not have access to a computer). 3rd, while in Romulan captivity in this book, Spock continues teaching - is there no surveillance for political prisoners in Romulan society? What sense does this make in a society in which the people are so guarded because, even when not imprisoned, they know they are always being watched. 4th, the Romulans did plant an informant in Spock's group, and even though he eventually switched sides, he could easily have pointed out Spock prior to this change of allegiance. It makes no sense whatsoever and was only included to allow the writer to create a warm and fuzzy moment when Spock's students accept horrible death to betraying their teacher. There are other nonsensical developments as well, but as light reading, this is a pretty good book. Still it is unfortunate Friedman did not do more; he does possess the talent.
    Next comes my gripe about e-books and the lack of professionalism that I find far too often. My bar for sloppiness in e-books is very low, but this book is outstanding in the absolute lack of proofreading. "Still, he thanked the android for his houghtfulness"; "But as his ather had told him more than once, beggars couldn't be hoosers"; "Playing host to the old gentleman was fraying th captain's nerves, which might be put to other bette uses"; "He stopped in midsentence and and looked at one of hi monitors. Smiling grimly, he turned to the captain again 'I have received a response, sir. The Romulans hav granted us a secure link..." I could fill a page with similar errors. In some sections I read four of five or four of six sentences with errors; then there will be a chapter with none, and then they start over again. This is and should be absolutely unforgivable. We pay for e-books, and we should at least get the same quality as we receive with paperbacks or hardcovers. There ought to be some modicum of pride in the product from those who release e-books, but I guess the publishers just don't see it that way.

  • I read this a few years ago, borrowed from a library, and falling in love with it. I was sold on the description promised putting Spock, McCoy, and Scotty together on Picard's Enterprise and did not disappoint. When I realized this was available on Kindle (in fact, it might've helped push me over to get one for my birthday), I knew I would buy it. I'm proud to say it was the very first book I purchased (plenty of free public domain books I bought in anticipation; I didn't want to buy until I had it in my hands) and the first I read completely.

    "Wow", you say. "Must be pretty special." It is. The author does not rely on the awesomeness of the three TOS characters to carry the story and craft an awesome story worthy of them. Their stories are interwoven, as well as the stories of the Romulan villains, very well, not staying on one too long and making sure they all contribute to the main story. The Enterprise D crew kind of get short shrift, but they contribute just as well, especially Picard. The story slows a little bit at times, but never stops ad builds to the finale. It's also touching, as the story is started by Spock being captured, bringing McCoy and Scotty to rescue him no matter what. Scotty's plan is definitely a great read, although McCoy's is pretty dramatic too.

    The Kindle copy has a few spelling mistakes that were a pain, but not bad enough to hurt the score. No matter how you get this, get it and enjoy this awesome and touching story...unless you hate Star Trek, but if you're here, you're probably looking for a book for the fan in your life. To that I say, go for it. They'll like it.

  • It was well written and kept me engaged. The characters were believable.

  • Great book

  • Disappointed

  • Beautiful book !

  • This is what a real trekky always love. A crossover between favorite characters of the different Star Trek series! Besides, the plot is easy to follow and very exciting. Michael Jan Friedman is very good at that. I definitely recommend this book and hope that more like it are currently being written.
