Reviews:
  • Dianaghma
The ends the story started in "Q-Zone" and "Q-Space", in which various god-like beings discovered by original Enterprise crew are explained, and which are now teaming up once again to threaten the very galaxy.

Throughout the trilogy, Q has taken Picard on an odd little "Q of Christmas Past" type journey through the ages to show how Q got involved with these super powerful sadists, and how he ultimately soured on their cruel activities and betrayed them. In the meantime, the Enterprise, with Riker in charge as Picard has disappeared for his galactic walkabout with Q, is having troubles of their own as a space living culture of energy-formed beings think they must destroy the Enterprise to keep the vessel from unloosing an ancient threat which has been exiled beyond the galaxy. This sub-plot serves to explain the mysterious energy barrier around the galaxy.

All in all the trilogy as a whole does an inventive, interesting, and entertaining job of piecing together what were originally completely unconnected stories from the Original Series and the TOS movies. It pits Q against ancient foes that he may not be up to subduing, and turns what should have been a routine scientific mission for the Enterprise into a fight for the survival of ship and crew.

Since this is the last offering in a trilogy, make sure to read the first two books (mentioned above) before this one. Then hang on for an exciting, if often troubling, ride.

After a decent opener, a flat sequel, this third installment is the best of the bunch.
Though it is much more action packed than the last, and the main characters are all reunited once again to fend off a common threat, it somewhat lacks the humor (from Q's dialouge) of the 1st book.
What I really enjoyed was more of the background of the main villian/s and their lore in past Star Trek moments. It is really neat to see how tightly alligned some of these books in comparison to the Star Trek Universe can be.
I was expecting a bit more of the Continuum to rear their heads as the trilogy implies, but not really. Also, after done with all three, I'm not sure I learned anything spectacular about the Continuum and thier origins.
All in all, Mr. Cox I believe redeemed himself with this book as number 2 was a let down.
Enjoy, and I look forward to more Q antics.

While the beginning of this trilogy had merit as far as the story went (I wasn't super crazy about the writing), it progressively went downhill as the books wore on.

This book in particular wasn't very good. "0"'s (the villain's) singsong speech and hackneyed rhyming was silly, and got VERY tiring by the end of the story. To me, it made him less formidable as an antagonist.

The author has a penchant for over-explaining situational character thoughts as well as overusing similes, and these faults were rampant by the end of this series.

Skip it.

Anything with Q and Picard is sure to delight...

The third book was a breath of fresh air and it felt like "warp speed" had been restored after crawling through the second book in the series. Great ending to a story that covered the history of "Q" and what brought about his mission to assist man.

I have been on a Q kick lately, and have been collecting all the old Q stories that I missed. I really enjoyed this book, and the rest of the series. Would recommend.
  • Granirad
I recommend this book. It takes from our present time to our far far future. We wonder if we are alone in our galaxy .I am sure we are not alone. To the future with God's speed.
Taking on the telling of a Q-sized adventure is a bold mission. How does one describe a continuum that is beyond human understanding? How does one create foes worthy of Q, an omnipotent being? This climax to the trilogy does both in epic fashion. More impressively, it dovetails with, and enriches, the complex canon of the Star Trek universe in a delightful way.
