lured into a deadly trap. A young Captain Picard is secretly
dispatched to an orbital city in a disputed part of space.
His mission: to recover an alien turncoat who could potentially
upset the balance of power in an entire sector. When an explosion
wrecks Picard's plan to beam the alien aboard the Stargazer,

the television series The Next Generation It features
a much younger Jean Luc Picard, and another familiar face
from the Enterprise, Ten Forward's ever popular barmaid
younger and rash Picard must aid Demmix, an old alien friend
who has valuable tactical knowledge that may help the Federation
end the cold war between them, the Cardassians and the Ubarrak

two-part Next Generation episode Time's Arrow).
all does not go to plan as Picard is framed and arrested for
a deadly crime he did not commit. His mission goes awry.
A deadly game of intergalactic politics ensues, with Picard,
Demmix and Guinan just pieces to be discarded. In order to
achieve his objective Picard and Guinan must team up, leading
to a desperate chase against enemy agents and the inhabitants
of Obl'viaan to reach the alien contact first. Victory
means peace, failure means all out war between the three factions.
is the first book of the Stargazer series I have read
and it will definitely not be the last. The author provides
enough depth to keep a Trekkie satisfied but anyone can pick
up this book and will easily get to grips with the universe.
There are enough twists in the storyline and action to keep
the reader interested. Being a fan of every Star Trek
series this book appealed to me.
recommend that every Star Trek fan should buy it.
