Imzadi (Star Trek Next Generation (Unnumbered))
Imzadi (Star Trek Next Generation (Unnumbered))
von Peter David
  Taschenbuch

5.0 von 5 Sternen Imazing, 26. Juni 2000
I actually read the sequel to this book first (foolish of me), and now I understand some of the things that were going on in Imzadi II. This book is far better then it's sequel. This book shows the beginning of Riker's and Troi's relationship and how it began (prepared to be surprised). The book focuses on Troi' death and how Riker handles it, over forty years. Special guest star, the Guardian of Forever. If you want more details on Riker's and Troi's relationship, then you must read this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It feels like you're there, 19. Juni 2000
This book was absolutly amazing! All ten stories were so detailed that they may make you feel like you're right there part of the action.
The Captain Israel Daniel Dickenson story is by Diane Carey, is set during the American Revolution, and is the prescective of his brother-in-law, Adam Ghent. Also there is an appearence of General Benedict Arnold, and the story ends with a letter written by Arnold shortly before his death in 1801.
The Captain Osborne B. Hardison story is also by Diane Carey, is set during WWII. It involves a friend of the captain's from the past. In the introduction Carey provides a key of all the navy abbreviations. A nice touch to this story is that the formant of this story is all dialouge.
The Captain Robert April story is by Greg Cox, but initially Diane Carey was going to do this captain because she has written two previous April stories (Final Frontier and Best Destiny). However, Carey wanted to do the two historical stories more because Gene Roddenberry was inspired by these two ships. This story is set in 2246 and has guest appearences of Kor and Kruge, and sets a background story on the Tarsus IV incident (The Conscience of the King).
The Captain Pike story is by Jerry Oltion, who has already written a Pike book (Captain's Table book 6, Where Sea Meets Sky, also a good book), and explores the crew a little more. Here, Number One is given a name, which was also mentioned in the Captain's book. In this story, we see a new race with empathic problems.
The James T. Kirk story is written by Michael Jan Friedman and is focused on a murder investigation. I'm not usually a Kirk fan, but some how Friedman wrote Kirk in a way that I like. We see here yet another ex-flame of Kirk's.
The Captain Will Decker story is by Diane Duane, and is set prior the first Star Trek movie. Duane gets a bit of hand with the details but the story is good nonetheless.
The Captain Spock story is by A.C. Crispin, the longest standing author of the Star Trek book universe. The story is set prior to Wrath of Khan. Here we developments of the Spock-Saavik relationship that is explored more in Vulcan's Heart.
Warning to readers!:
Don't read the following story if you intend to read The Captain's Daughter by Peter David, because the story is given away. I should know because now the story is blown away for me.
The Captain John Harriman story is by the wonderful Peter David, who has already written a story partially about him, the Captain's Daughter. This story focuses on an encounter with a Romulan examiner.
The Captain Rachel Garret story is by Robert Greenberger, who also wrote the Introduction of this book. The story is focused on an unexpected first contact experience. Here, we are reintroduced to Richard Castillo.
The Captain Jean-Luc Picard story is by John Vornholt, and is set in the Captain's Table. Picard tells the story of being on Andorian Homeworld trying desparately to stop a civil war.
If you enjoy the Enterprise legacy, then this book is a must.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Q in love?, 17. Juni 2000
A wedding is to happen and guest Ambassodar Lwaxanna Troi is to overlook it, but trouble starts to brew in Romeo & Juliet-like story when Q pops up to study love. What I like best was that Q hopefully learned that you don't mess around with Lwaxanna Troi, such as messing around with her feelings. Any Q fan will enjoy this hilarious book about love.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The begining of a great captain, 17. Juni 2000
I've just finished this book and all I can say is wow! Michael Jan Friedman has outdone himself, again! I love the ties from the Original Series into the Next Generation. I especially liked finally have heard the details of how and why Picard suddenly became captain.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must for trekkies, 17. Juni 2000
This book, or should I say companion, covers all seven seasons of Next Generation and Generations with great details of on- and off- the screen of each individual episode. Even you just like Next Generation but like to know more, this is a must.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An unique reference to Star Trek, 17. Juni 2000
A great reference that starts several billion years B.C. to about one thousand A.D. This book has up to Star Trek: Next Generation First Contact, Deep Space Nine Season Four, and Voyager Season Two. One favorite section of mine is the alternate universes section with ALL of the alternate universes up to date. Now I'm waiting for an revised edition...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hurray! An update, 17. Juni 2000
At long last an update version that goes up the end of Deep Space Nine, Voyager Season Five, and Star Trek: Next Generation Insurrection. An absolute most for any trekkie fan, especially those had the previous editions.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The perfect reference guide, 17. Juni 2000
I was so happy the day that I got this book, and I couldn't imagine, as a big trekkie buff, not having this book. It has everything there is to be known about star trek. If you're a trekkie, get this book. I mean now!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Again a good cover of the show, 16. Juni 2000
Along with book two of this series, this book covered seven episodes from Deep Space Nine. I enjoyed the different presectives in these two books. Good work Diane Carey! She has done plenty of covers of episodes and has done well again.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good cover of the DS9 episodes, 16. Juni 2000
Even tough this book was a cover certain episodes from DS9 and I was expected an original story, I enjoyed book, partially because I hadn't seen all of these episodes and it had different prespectives from the original shows.
