Written by Michael Jan Friedman.
All Good Things....,
Author - Michael Jan Friedman.
The book starts cleverly enough with 'Q' watching a couple walking along a beach, whilst he plots new torments for Captain Picard.
A few pages later it is revealed that the couple are in fact Deanna and Worf and that they are in a holosuite. Q is already aboard the Enterprise!
Seven years ago Q allowed humans to exist but told Picard at the time 'he would be watching'.
'Q', that being who believes himself above all other creatures in the universe. Believes that the universe or multiverse is his playground to do in, that which he wants and wills. And none may oppose him.
Now the captain finds himself flitting through different time zones in his life.
He is unaware, at first, that Q is showing him what a waste his life has been and what a waste his future will also be.
Picard and the crew of the Enterprise find themselves fighting both physically and mentally with Q to ensure the human race will not be wiped out.
All the Enterprise crew are here, harangued and tormented by Q.
Cast in order of appearance,
The novel is a standard Star Trek story with no new surprises. Not that this detracts from the story which is nicely written.
As you might expect, with such well established characters, the interaction and dialogue between them is smooth and concise.
A beach book, doesn't take a lot to keep the thread of the story going. Pick it up, put it down.
It's an easy read.
