Wie immer: Achtung SPOILER auch für den ersten Teil der Cold Equations-Trilogie!!

Plot:

Während die Enterprise mit Routineforschung beschäftigt ist, wird Data auf Orion festgenommen, da ein Android des Soong-Typs bei einem versuchten Einbruch in das Bankgebäude in der Überwachung entdeckt wurde. Zudem wird er auch noch verdächtigt, eine Agentin des Sternenflottengeheimdienstes ermordet zu haben, die er gebeten hatte, Daten von eben dieser Bank über Emil Vaslovik herauszufinden. Die Enterprise eilt zu Hilfe, doch die Situation auf Orion ist, politisch gesehen, wesentlich brisanter als gedacht. Und was hat es mit dem Soong-Typ Androiden auf sich? Mischen etwa die Breen auch mit?

Review:

Vorausschicken muss ich wohl, dass ich von den Post-Nemesis-TNG Büchern lediglich die Destiny-Trilogie gelesen habe. Die nachfolgenden Entwicklungen rund um den Typhon Pact kenne ich nur vom Hörensagen. Diese Trilogie legte ich mir einerseits schon wegen des Covers des 1. Teils, andererseits aber deshalb zu, da Mack in Interviews und Internetforen meinte, der Typhon Pact spiele nur eine untergeordnete Rolle. Das ist aber zumindestens in diesem Teil nicht ganz der Fall, da doch eine gewisse Kenntnis über die Mitglieder des Typhon Pacts und bisheriger Ereignisse (Stichwort Breen und Suche nach einem Antrieb ähnlich des Slipstream) vorausgesetzt wird. Hier wäre es wirklich wünschenswert, ein bis zwei Seiten in der Art von "Was geschah bisher" der Geschichte voranzustellen, um wirklich dem Anspruch, dass jeder Roman, egal wie verbunden er auch mit anderen sein mag, alleine gelesen werden kann, gerecht zu werden.

Im großen und ganzen geht es hier um verdeckte Operationen des Typhon Pacts in Gebiet der Förderation. Dabei sind die ersten 200 Seiten recht langweilig, die restlichen zwar relativ spannend zu lesen, jedoch ist die zugrunde liegende Idee alles andere als neu und insgesamt funktioniert der Roman auch nicht wirklich als zweiter Teil einer Trilogie.

- Das Ehepaar Crusher-Picard wird derart langweilig dargestellt, dass Mack selbst denkt, es bräuchte unbedingt hanebüchene Streitigkeiten, um Pfeffer in deren Alltagsleben zu bringen.

- Es wird wieder ein Charakter geopfert. Und diesmal haut Mack eine mehrere Seiten lange Trauerszene raus, nachdem dem letzten geopferten Charakter eine solche im ersten Band vorenthalten wurde. Über diesen wird eigentlich auch kaum der Rede wert mehr gesprochen - oh welch emotionsarme, schnelllebige Welt.

-> Der Charakter Worf bleibt mMn zu sehr außen vor. Gerade er hätte nach den Vorkommnissen des ersten Bands mehr in den Mittelpunkt gerückt werden müssen.

- Das dynamische Ermittlerduo La Forge Smrhova ist weckt nur ganz selten das Interesse des Lesers.

- Die "Stille Operation" ist natürlich eine Überraschung, ABER nach den Formwandlern und der Spezies 8472 wirkt die Idee etwas betagt...

- Die weiteren Operationen erhalten vielleicht einen Spielraum von 10 Seiten im Buch. Deren Idee war zwar wirklich innovativ, aber mit so vielen logischen Fehlern behaftet (wenn die Operation so wichtig war, warum gibt es nur ein Schiff als Geleitschutz??? Warum wird dieses auch noch von einem einfältigen Captain befohlen?

HASH(0x9988de34) von 5 Sternen Another great entry in what looks to be a classic trilogy from Mack 30. November 2012
Von Bain Sidhe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After devouring the first book of David Mack's new TNG trilogy (the first time I'd read a Star Trek novel cover to cover in I don't know how long), I was delighted to find a copy of Book Two, Silent Weapons, out on display a couple of days early at my area Barnes and Noble. And now having finished it I am convinced that this trilogy has the potential to be as epic as Destiny was.

Mack has a real gift for breathing vibrant life into what had (prior to Destiny and Star Trek 2009, at any rate) become a stultifying, ossified universe, and this book is no exception, teeming with vivid characterizations, richly-drawn surroundings, and breakneck action sequences that would easily be at home in a Jason Bourne movie. The story continues a few months after the events of Persistence of Memory, and furthers develops the Breen conspiracy introduced in that book, as well as Data's quest to hunt down the mysterious Immortal who holds the key to resurrecting his daughter. Nothing presented here is straightforward, however - the subterfuge and treachery on display here is on par with a well crafted political thriller. There is one particular scene involving a tautly-staged assassination plot that was as gripping as any episode of 24 - and given Mack's willingness to off important characters, I didn't have the ordinary tie-in novel sense of detachment that comes from "knowing" that everything will turn out okay in the end because of the magic reset button.

Simply put, this is another home run from Mack. I can't wait to read the last book of the trilogy, and hope it can deliver on the incredible promise of the first two books - though Mack hasn't disappointed yet, so I have faith. My only quibble, and it's a fairly minor one, centers around a reaction by Beverly to a certain action by Picard in the middle of the book. I found her reaction incredulous and out of character, and said reaction was clearly a contrivance to introduce a specific conversation between her and Picard. I think that conversation could have been introduced just as easily without creating a strained and fairly unbelievable "fight," but, again, given how great this book is, it's a minor disappointment at best. I will say that I had complaints about how Picard was handled in Book 1, and - as I suspected - he's much better here now that he's more of a main character. PLEASE, Paramount, keep giving this man money to write Star Trek books. He and JJ Abrams have saved this universe from irrelevance.

HASH(0x97b42204) von 5 Sternen A 3/4 Great Story 10. März 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Star Trek The Next Generation "Cold Equation (Book 2) Silent Weapons by David Mack I enjoyed reading this book. For 3/4 of the book I was impressed with the pacing and plot twists. I enjoyed how the author tried to led the reader from plot point to plot point with the promise that the climax would be well worth the wait. I also liked that this was much more of a TNG than several previous books. This book is the second book in Mr. Mack's three-book deal. I am reluctant to call this a part two because other than vague references, there really isn't a hard connection to the first book. In my opinion, the references made to the first book had no greater influence than references made to other plots from previous books.Without giving away any spoilers: The Breen have a bold plan that is incredible in its scope and audacity. If the plan is successful, it could make the Breen a major power in the Star Trek universe. They have the time, the determination, the resources, the manpower, and the materials. There was enough intrigue and plot twists that kept me reading. The Breen have access to a shipload of Data-type androids. I liked how the author doesn't reveal how the androids are going to be used. The book starts with a crime being committed by an android that fits Data's "profile", so he (Data) is taken into custody. He calls the Enterprise for help. The Enterprise has to prove Data's innocence AND discover the Breen's">Breen's true motives. Great! I'm invested in the characters and the plot. The author seems to be leading the reader from plot point to plot point, and I'm enjoying every minute of it. The Breen's">Breen's plan? Think of a foreign power having access to top-secret US/USSR summit with the ability to kill or control any and all participants at that top-secret meeting at any time. Impressive. Reasons, characterizations, and plot twist kept me rooted to one spot enjoying the book. I thought the author did a nice job of weaving suspense and intrigue for 3/4 of the book. As I was reading the book and the plot was slowly being revealed, I kept thinking that the goal was to make the Breen the NEW adversarial superpower in the Star Trek universe. Their plan was that good! The story was going so well...until about 3/4 of the way into the book. Then, the plot and story fell apart. The book was better off ending at the 3/4 mark. Unfortunately, it didn't. That Breen plan that kept me riveted to my seat...had another component. That "other component" left me saying, "What, you've gotta be kidding?" If that wasn't bad enough, the author then revisits previous plot twists to "add details". Now, every lead was achieved from an "anonymous source". Now, every character seems to believe that they are being misdirected, but continue to follow the misdirection "hoping to discover something new". Think of the former USSR gaining access to cutting-edge technology, spending billions of dollars, and years of planning, to get within inches/seconds of causing the US to collapse. But having the ability AND multiple opportunities to deal a crippling blow that would make the history books...decide to throw ALL that away by HANDING OVER the means, resources, AND plans because there is a 50-year old submarine that MIGHT have something useful. It is like a group of North Korean assassins managing to sneak into the White House planting bombs, and then with handguns, automatic weapons AND explosives, walk up BEHIND the president of the United States, tap him on the shoulder saying, "Hi, here are my weapons, the keys (and locations) to several cars loaded with explosives parked throughout the Washington DC area. By the way, I killed nearly everyone involved in the plan. My associates somehow discovered a 50 year old nuclear submarine off the coast of the US Virgin Islands. We'll have to tow it back to North Korea AND spend some time and more money to figure out how it works.

HASH(0x9988e62c) von 5 Sternen Left me salivating for book 3... 2. Dezember 2012
Von William Consugar - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I will have an extra Christmas prsent this year - the conclusion of this trilogy. book 1 was great because of the family aspect of it. book 2 was a great old fashion who done it with some humanizing of Captain Picard and his wife.

The allusion that someone is distracting the Enterprise crew from the true purpose of the Breen activities is perfect for the whole series...Mr. Mack is weaving another complex web of great story telling that is distracting us from what the whole series is really about. They should just make a new series of movies for his trilogies because they are that good.

Just buy the book, enjoy every fleeting moment that you read it, and wait for the end next month.

If you overanalyze this book and pick it apart, I suggest you should just go buy an author that can't write at all and pick them apart.

Any Trek book by David Mack is a must read. He is far and away the best writer the series has had, and I have read all the books. if you like Trek, don't think, just buy, this author and this series!

HASH(0x97e135b8) von 5 Sternen An unusual trilogy, but quite competent. Spoilers ahead 30. November 2012
Von Adrian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The first book in this trilogy was essentially about Noonien Soong's life and the resurrection of Data. Star Trek books often shine when they make it character driven and bring a person to life.

This second book is quite different. It's a full on Enterprise E novel, with the crew being played by parties of the Typhon Pact. There are many twists and turns, almost from the very beginning, and even at the end there are surprises for everyone.

I said there were spoilers, but I only meant for the first book. For this one, I think it's best not to say too much. Most books usually have, at best, one, maybe two twists in the plot. This one has about half a dozen or so, making you wonder "Why did such and such do that?", or "Why did such and such order that?". It's not a chilling suspenseful Stephen King novel, but it's got it's fair share of puzzling intrigue.

I'm glad TPTB have given one of the more competent authors the reins for this trilogy, and look forward to the third book in this series.

Thanks for reading!

HASH(0x97e13a44) von 5 Sternen Very close to being a political espionage thriller, but with Star Trek instead. 22. Dezember 2012
Von The Old Scribe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Not that that's a bad thing at all in this case.

The second book in the Cold Equations trilogy by David Mack is a completely different tone from the previous installment. Rather than being a journal from one character's perspective or a way to bring back a much-beloved character from a vague limbo, this book takes the reader through a plot filled with twists and turns that feel like the things that should have been seen in the Typhon Pact novels. Plots within plots are advanced, all to further mysterious goals against the Federation, and it's up to Captain Picard and his crew to figure out exactly what's going on - not to mention clearing the good name of the recently-resurrected Data from murder and espionage!

While one or two minor events in the book irked me (the Crusher/Picard drama we get seemed a little forced, honestly, but had a touching and nicely done resolution), the book is overall excellent and was one I really enjoyed reading. Returning characters are (mostly) believable, with new characters fitting into some unique roles quite nicely. A personal favorite of mine is the Cardassian exchange officer Dygan, who really shone in a previous novel "Brinkmanship."

In all, this is a great novel. I really enjoyed the first part of the trilogy, as well as the second, so I'm eagerly anticipating the third in the series now. Certainly a must-read!
