I have read hundreds of Trek books, and this is by far my favorite. Wonderfully intelligent speculative science, and fascinating story that ties in hundreds of years of trek lore. Simply brilliant. An enormous amount of love went into the crafting of this book. Truly a must read for Trek fans.
Good combination of two generations of Captians.
Captain Kirk and the crew of the Enterprise pursue a most critical mission: rescuing the brilliant scientist Zefram Cochrane from captors who want to use his skills to develop a way to conquer the galaxy. Ninety-nine years in the future, Captain Picard commands his own Enterprise crew on a similar mission, the rescue of an important and mysterious person whose safety is vital to the Federation's survival. As their missions develop, the two Enterprise's are drawn closer together until the past and future overlap, and in a very literal sense the fate of each ship depends upon the success of the other.
Whether you are a fan of the Original Star Trek or Star Trek: The Next Generation, you will be intrigued and entertained by this book. At one time, Kirk and crew must save Zephram Cochran, the inventor of the warp drive while 100 years later, Picard and his group must save Cochran again.
A wonderful crossover book by the best Star Trek writers ever, Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens.
I thought this book was pretty good.
