I had originally purchased this book to read about Captain Janeway - and, admittedly, the part about her was a lot of fun to read. I certainly had a good laugh. The author nailed her character. But as I read I found myself roped into an even greater story, found myself falling in love with characters I never knew existed, and learning of a part of the Star Trek universe that was previously unknown.
And agents Dulmer and Lucsly? Oh my goodness...! LOL Best. Characters. Ever. In the creation of the Star Trek universe.
He's taken characters who were barely mentioned (the Bozeman crew from TNG 'Cause and Effect', the defrostees from TNG 'The Neutral Zone', and, of course, the DTI operatives from DS9 'Trials and Tribble-ations', and really brought them to life, while including elements from the aforementioned TAS and Enterprise series'. In my opinion, Roddneberry himself could not have written a better Trek story. I hope Christopher L. Bennett writes many more, especially in his DTI series!
The book has a fantastically interwoven plot set across several times and strands, both telling the back stories of the characters and moving forward the "Temporal Cold War" plot in the wider Trek universe.
The book is also a fantastic trip down memory lane, referencing back to many previous episodes in an accessible fashion. I find myself drawn back to The Next Generation in particular to pick up on episodes I was fondly reminded of during the course of the book.
It was a real page turner.
