This is the story whereby the Enterprise stumbles upon two pre-warp civilizations that are about to engage in interplanetary war. Most of the basic premises of the plot were reasonable with (in my opinion) one glaring exception -- I just couldn't quite buy the Krann and their whole multi-billion person space fleet concept. Also, it seemed unlikely that the Krann would develop a cloaking device of the sophistication set forth in the story. But once one suspends one's critical facilities on these points the novel becomes a real pleasure, because it is well-written and an enjoyable read.
Star Trek TNG fans will enjoy this novel. I did.
The Last Stand has an awesome plot, and is written in a very smooth and appropriate flowing writing style that anybody can appreciate. The storyline in this book is amazing, and captivates you immensely. The book starts with an amazing story that captivates you through the entire book because not only do you want to know what happens in the crisis, but you also want to find out more about how the crisis began. I've been dissapointed with alot of books that started out with a great storyline, and then fizzled with a poor ending. However, this book was definately not one of them. The start, middle, and ending of this book were all amazing. The book had a touch of mystery, technological wonder, battle, plot twisting, humor, the whole nine yards. A salute to Brad Ferguson in providing a great reading experience on my first Star Trek novel adventure.
I am not a professional reviewer, and to be honest this is the first time I even bothered to review a book, but I was so impressed with it it motivated me to write a review and even order two more Star Trek books. Great job Mr. Ferguson!
GET THIS BOOK!!!...
a really enjoyable read! I read it in a day and it was pretty consistent almost to the end and then , you know, that discrepancy that just gets you .. just a little continuity error...
"...all of our people have been brought up believing we'd destroyed the world of the Karnn...." (when K. swoons upon hearing that the virus that destroyed the entire Karnn planet was natural not created.)
except it was earlier established that it was a *surprise* that the Karnn world had been found destroyed, "... No one was there? No one at all? Was their world destroyed like ours?"
They had been taught for ages that they had 'sinned' and enslaved the Karnn, and the Karnn had retaliated and the Lethanta had escaped, but not that they had 'destroyed' the Karnn world. I suppose you could argue they'd destroyed it metaphorically, but that'd be mighty weak to me. One presumed K. swooned because they'd presumed themselves responsible for the virus- upon finding out it existed with Picard's reply that the world had been destroyed by a virus. Not that they'd been bought up that way.
