I (reluctantly ?) admit to being a diehard Trekky when it comes to the shows and
the movies - but for a long time I turned my nose at the books...
It seemed to me they'd be cheap, crummy take-offs on the other media.
One day I found myself staring at a shelf full of them, and needed a Trek 'fix',
so I sat down and started to read; and was amazed at how mistaken I'd been.
Since then I cannot tell you how many of these books I've read, but I can tell
you for sure that out of many, many of them only one has been a disappointment.
If you enjoy Star Trek, you'll likely enjoy the books a surprising amount.
The Enterprise crew is stunned when famed scientist Lynn Costa is murdered in one of the ship's science labs. She and her husband Emil were known as science's greatest ongoing collaboration and, together, they had received the Federation's highest honors for their achievements in scientific research.
Determined to see the culprit brought to justice, Captain Picard assigns Lt. Worf and Counsellor Deanna Troi to the case. Their routine investigation of the ship's science labs soon reveals a dangerous web of deceit, betrayal, and madness. Now, Worf and Troi find themselves struggling against a ruthless assassin set on revenge--for whom murder is only the beginning.
